Want to know how to make the most out of our Key West scooter rentals? Congratulations! You’re about to experience one of the most unique transportation options available. You’ll also find that your visit is more enjoyable. However, we want to ensure that you’re able to make the most out of our Key West scooter rentals, so we’ve compiled a list of tips and tricks.
1. Know Your Rental Duration
The most important thing is to know your rental duration. That might seem like strange advice, given you booked the rental yourself, but bear with us. Many people assume that renting a scooter for a couple of hours will only take a couple of hours out of their day. When you’re on a tight timeframe, that can be a disaster. We recommend that you add at least 20 to 30 minutes on each side of the rental to help you plan your day and maximize your time on the island. This is particularly true if you’ll be exploring Key West while your cruise ship is in port.
2. Pay Attention to Your Fuel Level
Scooters are very fuel efficient, but they still require gasoline. Make sure you know where the fuel gauge is located and that you pay attention to it during your travels. It’s also important to know where your fuel filler cap is on the scooter. One of our friendly staff members will give you a rundown of all the equipment and features on your scooter before you head off to explore the island. Keep an eye out for gas stations so you can fill your tank when necessary, too.
3. Plan How You’ll Carry Purchases
Many of our guests like to use their scooters to explore the island, and that often means shopping for souvenirs. One thing that surprises them is the limited storage available on the scooter. We recommend planning your shopping carefully so that you’re able to get your purchases back to your room or rental home with a minimum of fuss.
4. Know What to Expect from the Weather
Key West is a tropical island, and that means we get thunderstorms regularly during certain parts of the year. The greatest chance of rain is from May through October, with the highest chance in September. From November through April, we experience drier weather. We recommend you plan for the weather you’re most likely to experience during your visit so you can carry an umbrella when you go out.
5. Be Prepared for Crowds
Key West is a popular destination with all types of travelers, particularly during the winter months. We recommend that you prepare for the crowds so that you’re better able to get around during your visit, particularly if you’re interested in exploring Duval Street.
