Vacation Tips When Renting a Key West Golf Cart

When you start planning your trip to the beautiful island of Key West, you have to consider your options for getting around the island. Renting a golf cart is a fun, economical way to take in the sights around the city. Golf carts are convenient, economical, fun to drive, and better for the environment than gas-powered cars. Before you rent your golf cart here are some tips to help ensure you have a smooth and enjoyable experience renting your golf cart.

The Rental Company

First and foremost, you want to make sure you are renting from a reputable company. Read reviews, check out their website, and ask to see the rental policy. Make sure you understand what you are responsible for, what insurance is available, and how you are getting the golf cart. A reputable company like A&M Rentals will provide a drop-off and pick-up service.

Know the Rules

Key West has specific rules and regulations when it comes to golf carts on public streets. Make sure you know these rules to avoid being ticketed. The rental company will be able to provide you with the information you need to enjoy your golf cart rental and stay on the right side of the law.


Take time to map out your routes for the day. This helps you make the most of your rental and see as many sights as possible. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t leave time for a play day, a day to just ride around and see the natural side of the island. 

As you plan your routes, make sure you find out if the stops you want to make are golf cart accessible and if there is parking. Some attractions may have limited spots for golf carts. It’s better to know this before you get there than to get there and not be able to park. Your entire day could be ruined. 

Drive Safe

Nothing will ruin your vacation faster than being involved in an accident with another vehicle. Golf carts do not go as fast as cars and are often harder to see than full-sized vehicles. Don’t tailgate other cars, watch for walking tourists, and stay aware of your surroundings. It’s easy to get distracted looking at scenery. Stop the golf cart if you want to look and take pictures. A safe, leisurely ride is better than speeding around and getting in an accident.

Enjoy the Scenery

The best part about renting a golf cart in Key West is seeing the scenery with a wide-open view. You aren’t boxed in like you would be in a car. You can take your time exploring the streets and finding hidden gems that others might miss in a car. 

This is just a sampling of tips to help you enjoy your vacation in Key West with a golf cart. The staff at A&M Rentals will be happy to get you on your way to soaking up all the island has to offer in one of their many golf carts. Call today to reserve your golf cart.
