You are planning a vacation to Key West, and you are going to want a Key West scooter rental to help you get around. That’s a great idea, and you’ll find that it has the potential to be a lot of fun. However, if this is the first time you will be using Key West scooter rentals, you need to understand a few things.
Get the Right Scooters
First, you need to be sure you are getting the right scooter. There are one-seater and two-seater scooter options. The one, or ones, you choose are entirely your decision and will often depend on who is going with you. If you are going to be traveling with someone who doesn’t want to drive a scooter, you may want a two-seater, so you can carry them, for example.
Make Reservations and Rent at the Same Time
Key West is a popular destination. Scooters also happen to be a very popular way of getting around the city. Therefore, you should make sure that you reserve your scooters as early as possible. This will ensure they are there and ready for you when you arrive. You don’t want to rent when you arrive if you can help it, as they may not have everything you need. If you are traveling with other people, and you are all going to want to rent, consider renting them all from the same company and at the same time for the same reasons.
Know the Costs
Check the cost of the scooter rentals, too. You will find that the prices tend to be similar between the companies around Key West. With A&M Rentals, for example, the cost is $35 a day for a one-seater and $60 a day for a two-seater.
Know the Rules and Be Safe with the Scooter
The rules of the road apply when you are on a scooter, just as if you were in a car or truck. You need to use your turn signal, pay attention to traffic and pedestrians, and turn on your headlight after sunset. Also, you don’t need to have a motorcycle license to rent a scooter, but you will need to be at least 18 years old.
Although the scooters are easy to drive, you still need to be careful and take precautions. Always wear a helmet and abide by traffic laws. It’s better to be safe rather than sorry.
Know Where You Are Going
When you are in your hometown or a place where you are more familiar—or don’t have a limited amount of time—you can get lost and still have a good time. When you are on vacation and you are trying to experience all that Key West has to offer, you don’t want to get lost. Before you head out on the scooter, have a good idea of where you are supposed to be going first.
