We are downtown and open early. We have clean new cars without hidden taxes and fees. We are a real shop with real office hours and real reservations. On an Island with no surrounding towns, it is best to know your reservation solid.

Cooks Cycles, Affordable Rentals, and Cooks Cafe are owned by two Nantucket families that want to make sure you have a great time on Nantucket. We understand that what we do can make your trip be over the top. We want you to go out and see the outside edges of the island and not just the downtown. Ask us where we like to go. We know all the best spots!

Affordable Rentals is downtown just steps away from the Steamship dock and the Hyline dock. We are a cab ride away from the Nantucket airport and do not charge extra airport fees and taxes.

We accept all major credit cards.

We specialize in excellent Island vehicles like Jeep Wranglers, Ford Broncos, electric BMW i3’s, and Mini Cooper Convertibles.

All of our 4 wheel drive vehicles have the Town of Nantucket beach permit and the Oversand permit required for Great Point.

If you are traveling to Great Point in a rental vehicle you will have to pay for a beach day pass at the gate. The beach day pass is used to maintain the area north of the Wauwinet Gate house.

Day rentals last up to 24 hours. We also offer a convenient after hours key drop for people who finish with their vehicles after hours.
