Which Scooter Rental Should I Pick?

If you’re considering using a scooter to get around Miami on your upcoming vacation, you’ll fit right in. Locals and visitors alike love to zip around tourists and traffic on these fun and efficient vehicles.

Choosing the right one for your needs, though, can be an overwhelming decision. After all, there are a lot of options. Let’s take a look at some of the top names: Boom, Iceberg, Tao Tao, Tmax, and Vespa so you can make an informed decision. If you still have questions, feel free to reach out to the experts at Scooter Style.

Style Versus Efficiency

As with most things in life, there’s a balancing act between how cool you want to look while cruising and the efficiency of the scooter you choose. Some of our most stylish scooters include Boom scooters (especially in yellow) and the Tmax 500. The most classic, of course, is the Vespa.

Boom scooters are also super sleek, compact, and fast. If you like to zip in and out or want more of a thrill, that might be your best option.

Go the Distance?

If you plan to really get out and explore the area beyond South Beach, you might want something more on the efficient side when it comes to gas mileage. If so, then our Tao Tao models might be your best fit. They come in a range of styles and colors and consistently outperform their competitors when it comes to getting the most out of a tank of gasoline.

Carrying “Stuff”

South Beach is well known for its unique boutiques and shopping opportunities. If you plan to make the most of them on your vacation, then you might want a scooter that can carry packages. Most brands have clever compartments to put your stuff in, but two of the best are the Iceberg and Tao Tao Evo.

Carrying Passengers

If you’re traveling with someone else, you might want to both ride on the same scooter to save money and enjoy the scenes together. The Tmax 500 has an extra long seat that’s designed to accommodate two people comfortably.

In addition, Vespa scooters are well known for comfortably seating two people. The sight of two people holding onto each other on a Vespa is a classic couples’ moment–definitely Instagram worthy!


Wondering about parking your scooter? Scooter parking is abundant in South Beach, and you can also park in motorcycle and regular vehicle spots. Unfortunately, you can’t just park a motorized scooter anywhere (in the same way that you can park a bicycle). Each of the models we carry are equally compact and easy to park in any designated spot.

Have Fun!

Whichever scooter you choose, remember that it’s a rental and not a long-term purchase. If you’ve browsed our website and something caught your eye, go for it! You’re on vacation, and it’s time to indulge.
