We have been hiring a six-seater cart on St Mary’s for a couple of days per holiday for the past five years. It’s a quirky way to see the island, with many places to stop off and explore. It’s great for the older members of...More

A rainy Saturday and we were lucky enough to get a last-minute cancellation 6-seater cart (do book in advance!) to tour the island. The five of us had such a laugh! The carts are really easy to drive, in great condition and a whole lot...More

We phoned on the day at 08:45 and booked a 4-seater cart for collection at 09:45. We spent the whole day sight=seeing all across the island, stopping for snacks/lunch on the way. The cart's battery started to slow very late in the day and I...More

Family of 4 booked well in advance a 6 seater - so we had a bit of extra space. 4 seater would have been adequate, but having the extra 2 seats gave us a bit more shelter from the showers. Simple to use, clear instruction...More

Ideal pick up point on the edge of Hugh Town at Porthmellon. Can hire from a day to a week. Easy to drive even if a left hand drive. Not much traffic on the island so no problems.Such friendly people and easy to understand instructions.

Great way to see the island and very reasonably priced. Make sure you wrap up warm if out of season as very cold and exposed. Company were very accommodating, on website said not open yet for season, but still arranged a cart for us!!!! Well...More

I called up them up and was in a buggy a few minutes later. Everything was friendly and efficient. The 1hr 45 thing really should be enough for anyone. It's enough for three laps of the island and I can't really see why anyone would...More

Pre-booked the cart and confirmed by email with all details requested including island address and mobile number. On the day, we realised we would be about 10 mins late collecting cart. So we rang the company at 0945 saying we were on way and would...More
