Frequently Asked QuestionsFAQ
The answers provided below are based on answers previously given to customers' questions.
Can I let my child under 18 years old drive a scooter or electric car by themselves?
No, because you must be at least 18 years old to rent a scooter and 22 years old to rent an electric car. Only the person who enters into the vehicle rental agreement may operate the vehicle. Therefore, the minimum age for drivers will be 18 and 22 years old respectively. We apologize for any inconvenience, but rules like this are standard at any U.S. rental car agency and are required by insurance regulations.
Can you drive a scooter or electric car outside of the island of Key West?
No. You can drive only within the city limits of Key West. Under Florida law, highways are off-limits to electric cars, golf carts, and scooters of all types because the minimum highway speed is set at 40mph except for certain exceptions in congested areas. Scooters can reach a maximum of 40mph but this would be quite risky unless you are an expert rider. Key West electric cars and golf carts have lower top speeds.
All of the streets on the island of Key West have posted speed limits of 30mph or less, so you can go anywhere on the island. This includes South Roosevelt Blvd. which is technically part of US highway A1A. The speed limit in Old Town is 20mph, so these vehicles are very useful for getting around the heart of Key West. The Key West city limits include most of Stock Island, and US1 crosses on to Stock Island with a 35mph limit, but be very careful of the busy highway traffic. An easy rule of thumb is to consider the CVS on the eastern edge of Stock Island as your travel limit.
Do you offer pick up at one location and drop off at another?
Yes, you may request a shuttle drop-off at a different location within Key West.
Do you provide a pickup service from the airport, cruise ship port, ferry, or our hotel?
Yes, Tours of Key West is happy to offer complimentary customer pick-up from anywhere in Key West, including the airport, cruise ship port, ferry, or your hotel. Your Key West 4 Seater Electric Car Rental email confirmation will contain a local phone number to coordinate your pickup. Avoid expensive taxis and high price parking, and let Tours of Key West make your vacation easy.
Do you provide child seats for the electric cars and golf carts?
Yes, we have seats available in several sizes. Florida child seat laws are the same for any car including electric cars and golf carts – all children under the age of 5 years old or weighing less than 70lbs must be in a child safety seat. Every passenger must have their own seat with seat belts and no one can be held on another person’s lap.
How do I return a scooter or an electric car after hours?
If you need to return a scooter or electric car after hours, simply drive to the rental center and park where the other vehicles are parked. You may drop the keys in the after-hours drop box located at the rental check-out booth.
How fast do your electric cars go?
The electric cars offered by Key West Electric Cars have a top speed of 26 mph. This is perfect for getting around the narrow streets of Key West’s Historic Old Town where the speed limit is 20mph. Top speed on any street on the island is 30mph, but traffic often limits how fast drivers can go. Remember that battery life in any electric vehicle is related to the average speed the driver maintains as well as vehicle load and other factors. When higher constant speeds are maintained, the battery discharges faster.
How late can I get the free shuttle?
Free shuttle service available from 8am until 10pm daily is included with every Key West scooter and electric car rental. All the information you need to take advantage of the shuttle when picking up or dropping off your vehicle will be sent in an email when your booking is completed. You can also contact our customer service representatives if you have further questions.
How old do you have to be to rent an electric car or golf cart?
As per insurance regulations, you must be at least 22 years old and have a valid driver’s license to rent an electric car or golf cart. Only the renter is allowed to drive the vehicle. Every passenger must have their own seat and no one can be held on someone’s lap – all children under the age of 5 years old or weighing less than 70lbs must be in a child safety seat. We have seats in various sizes available at no extra charge.
What is the weather cancellation policy?
If the Key West 4 Seater Electric Car Rental must be canceled due to bad weather, and you cannot go on another day or time, you will be issued a refund by Tours of Key West.
Where can I park my car?
If required, parking instructions for the Key West 4 Seater Electric Car Rental will be included in your confirmation email.

Our Most Enjoyable Trip to Key West Ever!!
Brenda W, May 2023 Verified
We have visited Key West before, and we did all the touristy Conch rides available. But when you have the chance to drive yourself around and take the time to really look, you see everything you've missed before by being forced onto other people's time tables. We enjoyed our Gem electric car so much. And it was so much more comfortable than have a golf cart where someone has to sit backwards! We will be back, and when we do, we will definitely rent another Electric car!! We travel to our own schedule!!
Awesome time in key west
Willie Y, Apr 2023 Verified
The first 6 seater we were given ran ok till we got about 15 minutes away, then it took us about an hour to get back. The staff was super apologetic and got us in a new one. We didn’t have any problems from that point. They also gave us more time to make up for the broken car. Will def use them again. Highly recommend
We had a great time exploring on our own!!

We firmly believe that the internet should be available and accessible to anyone, and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience,
regardless of circumstance and ability.To fulfill this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level.
These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible
to all people: blind people, people with motor impairments, visual impairment, cognitive disabilities, and more.This website utilizes various technologies that are meant to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We utilize an accessibility interface that allows persons with specific
disabilities to adjust the website’s UI (user interface) and design it to their personal needs.Additionally, the website utilizes an AI-based application that runs in the background and optimizes its accessibility level constantly. This application remediates the website’s HTML,
adapts Its functionality and behavior for screen-readers used by the blind users, and for keyboard functions used by individuals with motor impairments.If you’ve found a malfunction or have ideas for improvement, we’ll be happy to hear from you. You can reach out to the website’s operators by using the following email
Screen-reader and keyboard navigation
Our website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, alongside various different behavioral changes, to ensure blind users visiting with
screen-readers are able to read, comprehend, and enjoy the website’s functions. As soon as a user with a screen-reader enters your site, they immediately receive
a prompt to enter the Screen-Reader Profile so they can browse and operate your site effectively. Here’s how our website covers some of the most important screen-reader requirements,
alongside console screenshots of code examples:
Screen-reader optimization: we run a background process that learns the website’s components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website.
In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels;
descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (popups),
and others. Additionally, the background process scans all of the website’s images and provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag
for images that are not described. It will also extract texts that are embedded within the image, using an OCR (optical character recognition) technology.
To turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, users need only to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen-reader users also get automatic announcements to turn the Screen-reader mode on
as soon as they enter the website.These adjustments are compatible with all popular screen readers, including JAWS and NVDA.

Notes, comments, and feedback
Despite our very best efforts to allow anybody to adjust the website to their needs, there may still be pages or sections that are not fully accessible, are in the process of becoming accessible, or are lacking an adequate technological solution to make them accessible. Still, we are continually improving our accessibility, adding, updating and improving its options and features, and developing and adopting new technologies. All this is meant to reach the optimal level of accessibility, following technological advancements. For any assistance, please reach out to
