Which Scooter Rental is Right For Me?

So you’ve decided to enhance your Miami experience with a scooter rental! We know you’re excited to start your adventure. The next step is to decide which scooter model will be right for you. It can be a little overwhelming when faced with so many options, but understanding the benefits of some or our most popular scooters can help narrow down your choices so you can identify the best option for your time in Miami!


When you hear “scooter,” the Vespa is probably the model that pops into your mind. The Vespa is a sleek looking scooter with a retro feel. It is known for both performance and style. A Vespa rental is recommended if you:

Are a newer scooter rider
Are taller than average or like the feeling of a higher seat
Prefer a smoother ride


For the adventurer! This scooter screams fun. With its flashy appearance and high power, it’s the closest we offer to a motorcycle. The Boom may be the right option if you:

Have experience riding a scooter or are comfortable with a scooter with some pick-up!
Prefer a scooter that rides closer to a motorcycle
Are of average height

Ice Bear Maddog

This is NOT your average scooter! Sure to attract the attention of passers by, this scooter features lowered and stretched seating. You may consider an Ice Bear Maddog if you:

Are an experienced scooter rider looking for something a little different
Are comfortable riding low
Want to be driving the flashiest looking scooter around!

Golf Cart

Yes – you read that right. Most times when people decide on a scooter rental, they’re looking to spice up their days with more fresh air and a little adventure. Many of the benefits of renting a scooter can also be achieved by renting a golf cart. Our EZ GO L6 golf carts are road ready and seat up to 6! We recommend considering a golf cart rental if you:

Are comfortable with the feel of a car and nervous about driving a scooter
Have children over car seat age but under driving age and intend to drive with them in your rental
Are traveling with a group and do not want to take the chance of becoming separated

This is just a taste of what Scooter Styles has to offer! We have other models as well as price breaks for multiple days’ rentals. To view all of our available models, as well as our special pricing options, click here.

Tips For DIY Scooter Maintenance

Owning a scooter is a far more affordable and easy means of transportation than a car. But scooters still require regular maintenance to ensure they’re safe and operating efficiently. The great thing about scooter maintenance is that there are fewer parts, the mechanics are simpler, and many scooter owners find that most regular maintenance is simple to do themselves.

Whether you’re a long time scooter owner, or considering purchasing your first one, here are some DIY maintenance tips to keep you cruising along.

#1 – Read Your Owner’s Manual

Yes, this is not the most exciting thing in the world, but it’s key if you want to save money and perform routine maintenance yourself. Every scooter make and model is different, but your owner’s manual will outline a recommended maintenance schedule and teach you the ins and outs of your scooter mechanics.

Most importantly, your scooter’s warranty may require you follow the manufacturer’s maintenance schedule to keep it intact (i.e. if you fail to change the oil and the engine burns up, you’re not covered under warranty).

#2 – Perform Routine Maintenance

If you are familiar with your scooter’s mechanics and are comfortable with basic maintenance, it is possible for regular maintenance to be an easy DIY job. While every manufacturer will have their own recommendations, the following is a general guideline for scooter maintenance from Scooter Focus:

Every 250 miles or every month:

Check engine oil level
Check tire pressure
Check lights and horn
Check battery level

Every 1000 miles or every 6 months

Change engine oil
Check tires for wear
Check valve stems for splits or cracks
Check brakes and throttle operation. Lubricate cables if required
Check all screws nuts and bolts and tighten. Especially check muffler and exhaust fasteners and front and rear axles

Every 2000 miles or every year

Change the transmission oil
Check and adjust valve clearance
Clean air cleaner
Check and clean (or replace) spark plug
Check brake linings.
Check/clean/lubricate brake and throttle cables
Check CVT drive belt for wear and cracks
Check wheel and steering bearings

#3 – Partner With A Professional You Trust

Listen, if you can perform basic maintenance to keep your scooter in tip-top shape, that’s fantastic! But many owners either aren’t confident enough or simply don’t have the time. That’s why it’s important to have a scooter repair and maintenance professional on call that you can trust.

Scooter Style in Miami Beach is that professional. We do far more than just rent scooters: we are a full-service repair, maintenance, and dealer for new and used scooters. Whether you need a go-to technician for your regular maintenance, or you break down and need an emergency repair, we’re here when you need us.

Contact Scooter Style at 305-904-8085 or email to schedule service or get an estimate for repairs. In the neighborhood? Just stop in! We have two convenient locations on the beach at 1676 Collins Avenue and 233 11th Street.

Everything You Need To Know About Golf Cart Rentals In Miami

Scooter rentals are a fun way to get around Miami, but they're not very practical for families or
visitors who want to hit the shops. Car rentals are functional and comfortable, but South Beach
traffic is brutal; and who wants to be stuck in a car when you could be cruising the beach with
the wind in your hair and the sun on your face?

Golf cart rentals are the perfect solution. With room for 6, seatbelts for safety, and plenty of
storage, you can hit the beach in style and enjoy all the benefits of car and scooter rentals, with
none of the drawbacks.

Golf carts on the road?

Let's clear one thing up first: these golf carts are COOL. These are not your grandma's
retirement village carts, and they're not same carts you're going to hit the links in. Golf cart
rentals from Scooter Style have been lifted, painted, and made street-legal. They're gas, not
electric, so they've got pep. They also have bluetooth speakers so you can jam out as you
cruise down the strip. They're cool, we promise. Come check them out for yourself and see!

Now let's cover some FAQs we often hear about renting a golf cart in Miami.

How are they powered?

Scooter Style rents gas powered EZ-GO street-legal golf carts, so there's no need to charge
them and you don't have to worry about being stranded with a dead battery. Never gassed up a
golf cart before? We'll show you how!

Where can they go?

Our golf carts can go on any road where the posted speed limit is 30 MPH or less. You can't
take them on the highway, but their perfect for downtown and beach sightseeing.

Are there any special rules for driving a golf cart on the street?

You are required to follow all the same traffic laws as cars and scooters. Stay on the road, in
your lane, and stop and go with traffic signals just like you would in a car.

Where can I park?

In any legal parking spot! Because golf carts are small, you can squeeze in the tightest spots,
even when inconsiderate car-drivers park over the lines.

How much storage do golf carts have?

There are storage compartments located under the seats – plenty of room for your beach bag or
shopping finds! Please just be sure to secure the golf cart when parking, and never leave
personal belongings in the cart when unattended.

How many people can ride in a golf cart?

Scooter Style rents 4 and 6 person golf carts. So bring the whole family!

Can children ride in golf carts?

Yes! All of our golf carts are equipped with seatbelts for safety. Children, and all other riders,
should remain seated when the cart is in motion.

How old do you have to be to rent/drive a golf cart?

You must be 18 years old and have a valid driver's license.

What do I need to rent a golf cart?

You must have a driver's license and credit card and agree to our rental contract.

What if it rains?

You might get wet! But not as wet as you would on a scooter! Golf carts have a top and hinged
windshield to offer some protection from the elements. Keep in mind though, the rain usually
doesn't last long here. Find a spot to grab a quick bite or do some shopping to wait it out, and
you'll be back on the road in no time.

What if I've never driven a golf cart before?

No problem! We offer free onsite tutorials before you hit the road. Golf carts are very easy – and
fun! – to drive.

Scooter Rental Safety Tips

You’ve arrived in Miami Beach and you’re about to finalize your Vespa rental! You’re picturing yourself zipping through the Miami streets, cruising down to the beach, taking in the sights with the wind in your hair. While a scooter is a fun and affordable way to get around Miami, safety is still priority number one. Here are a few tips for maximizing your fun while staying safe on your scooter.

Protective Gear

It will come as no surprise that the most important piece of safety equipment is a helmet. Preventing a head injury is as easy as strapping on one of our DOT-approved helmets, complete with goggles or a face guard to keep road dust out of your eyes. You can use one of our helmets (included with your scooter rental) or bring your own; either way, your head needs to be protected before you roll out on your scooter.

As for the rest of your body, a scooter doesn’t require the same safety precautions as a motorcycle, but it’s still a good idea to wear long pants and a light jacket to give your skin a little extra protection in case of an accident. Also, it can help drivers see you if you wear bright colors and reflective strips.

Safe Driving

The safety rules for driving a car and riding a scooter are a little different, so it’s important to familiarize yourself with some basic tips before you take off.

  • Use your turn signal. Drivers of cars need to do this too, but it’s even more important when you’re on a scooter. Give the drivers around you plenty of notice before you change lanes or turn a corner so they don’t accidentally cut you off. You can even use the hand signals you likely learned in drivers’ ed to indicate when you’re turning, stopping, or slowing down.
  • Stay visible. You probably know that it can be hard to see motorcycles in your blind spot on the highway; this is doubly true for scooters. Avoid getting into a car’s side blind spot and make sure the drivers can see you.
  • Keep to a safe speed. It’s tempting to zip off into the sunset as fast as possible, but resist it! Always drive within the posted speed limits and go with the flow of traffic.

Theft Prevention

Simple, common-sense preventive measures can stop you from being a victim of theft. When you rent a scooter from Scooter Style, your rental will include a cable chain lock  that you can use to secure your scooter in designated parking spots. Never, ever leave your valuables on the scooter, even in locked compartments. Only carry what you need and leave everything else locked safely in your hotel room.

You’ll get the most out of your vacation with a scooter rental from Scooter Style. Without the aggravation of driving and parking a car, you’ll have that much more time to see everything Miami Beach has to offer. Reserve your scooter now by calling 305-904-8085 or contacting us through our website.

Scooter Rentals: The Best Way to Get Around Miami

With Miami’s traffic levels ranking 6th worst in the US, a car might not be your best pick if you have a lot on your travel itinerary. And there’s so much to see! Art Deco District, Jungle Island, the Miami Seaquarium, Bayside Marketplace, and the beautiful Vizcaya Museum & Gardens. A scooter rental from Scooter Style can help you zip right through all the traffic and make the most of your days in Miami.

Traffic & Parking Are A Breeze

Miami is a pretty large city; the metropolitan area stretches over 6,000 square miles. You’ll be spending a fair amount of time on the road, so you might as well have fun in between destinations. Customers have said that our SoBe scooter rentals made their commute not only easy as they were able to weave in and out of traffic, but fun as well!

When it comes to parking, rumor has it that the parking in Miami Beach can be crazy expensive and difficult to find, but we disagree! With a scooter, parking is cheaper and easier. There are scooter-only parking spots every few blocks in Miami Beach, some of which are even completely free.

More Affordable Than Cars & Taxis

Renting a car is always an option for navigating Miami but it’s definitely pricier, especially with the gas spent stuck in traffic. Alternatively, taxis are also readily available in Miami but beware of traffic. Rookie tourists who have taken cabs during rush hour have been shocked at the fares charged after extra time spent in traffic jams.

A scooter rental is the more affordable way to cruise through South Beach. With our Vespa rentals, you won’t be hit with surprise costs (or get caught up in rush hour traffic!). You pay a flat rental fee and pay for gas — that’s it.

Safe And Dependable

Scooter Style offers repair and maintenance services, so all our products are serviced and in top condition. You can be sure that you’re getting the a safe, dependable scooter when you rent from us.

We welcome both first-time scooter riders and experienced pros. We give first-timers an onsite scooter tutorial that includes driving and parking, as well as filling up the gas tank. Scooter Style will also give you the contact information for our technicians just in case you have an issue with a flat tire or run into any other problems throughout your trip.

Renting A Scooter In Miami Beach: It’s Easier Than You Think!

When you’re on island time, nothing beats riding around on a scooter, taking in the sites and enjoying the warm breeze on your face. If you’re planning your next trip to Miami Beach or you’re a local looking for a little fun in the sun, renting a scooter is a great first step for a memorable day. Scooters are affordable, get good gas mileage, are easy to drive and park, and allow you to take in the inspiring sights, sounds and smells of SOBE in style.

License Requirements

What if you’ve never driven a scooter before? You may be wondering if you’re you even qualified to get behind the wheel of that pink Vespa and hit Collins Avenue. It all depends on the type of scooter you’re driving. Many scooter rental companies offer a wide range of scooters from 49cc engines to upwards of 150cc.
Vehicles with engines 50cc and below typically won’t reach speeds higher than 30 miles per hour and therefore can be driven without any special training or licensing. You can simply hop on one of these scooters with nothing more than astandard non-commercial driver’s license.

If you want something a little faster, you’re going to need avalid motorcycle license.
Of course, having a valid driver’s license also means that you should be at least 16 years of age to drive a scooter with a 50cc engine or below (21 years of age for faster scooters). But that’s the end of it. You don’t need special insurance, nor do you need to go through any training program to drive a scooter.

At Scooter Style in SOBE (South Beach), we’ll teach you everything you need to know to have a safe, fun and memorable experience.

Finally, we will make sure you have our contact information in case of a flat tire or other mechanical issue so that our technicians can meet you to service the scooter.
