Car rental Bar Harbor

We will be arriving via cruise ship for 1 short day in September. We want to rent a car for the day approx. 8:00am until 4:30pm. Is there a car rental place in Bar Harbor? Do we have to go to Hancock airport?

I do not believe there is a car rental in Bar Harbor...you might consider using the Island Explorer bus instead of a car...by the time you get out to the airport for your car and then drive back, that sounds like a lot of wasted time out of your too short time here anyway...

Thank you for your reply. We have spent many wonderful week long vacations with our own car at Bar Harbor. This time we only have a day; yet I want to cram in as many of our favorites as possible! I agree that the time spent getting and returning a rental car is not worth it. I will investigate the bus.

I have heard that the Enterprise in Ellsworth will bring a car to you at your location. Try giving them a call to save yourself the trip to the airport. Make sure that you don't have to give the driver a ride back to Ellsworth though!
