Golf Cart Rental Tips

Golf Cart Rental Tips

While most people associate golf carts with the greens and fairways of a golf course, these versatile vehicles have become increasingly popular for various non-golf events and activities. You will often see golf carts driven all over Florida communities and neighborhoods. If you’re considering renting a golf cart for your next non-golf event, this guide is for you. Here are some golf cart rental tips to consider.

1. Identify Your Needs

Before starting your search, determine what you need the golf cart for.

  • Capacity: Do you need a 2-seater, 4-seater, or a 6-seater? All of our golf carts are equipped to seat up to four people.
  • Duration: Is the rental for a day, a weekend, or longer? Some rental companies only allow longer rentals.
  • Purpose: Will the golf cart transport people, equipment, or both?

2. Check the Terrain

While golf carts can navigate a variety of surfaces, they are not all-terrain vehicles.

  • Terrain Type: Ensure the golf cart can handle the terrain, whether it’s paved roads, grass, or gravel.
  • Hills: If your event area is hilly, ensure the cart you rent has enough power to manage inclines. All of our golf carts should easily be able to handle any of the inclines here in Florida.

3. Consider Electric vs. Gas

Golf carts come in both electric and gas-powered variants.

  • Electric Carts: They’re quieter and more environmentally friendly but may require charging if used extensively.
  • Gas Carts: These have a more extended range and can be refueled quickly, but they’re noisier and emit fumes.

Our golf carts are electric, typically having fewer issues than gas carts. Please let us know if you have any questions about how to charge the golf cart.


4. Insurance & Liability

Ensure you’re covered in case of damages or accidents.

  • Check if the rental company offers insurance.
  • Review your car or homeowner’s insurance to see if it covers golf cart rentals.

5. Look for Safety Features

Safety should always be a priority.

  • Ensure the golf cart has working headlights and brake lights.
  • If your event is in the evening, consider carts with better lighting or reflective strips.

6. Delivery & Pickup

Some companies deliver and pick up the golf carts directly from your event location.

  • Verify any delivery or pick-up fees.
  • Confirm the delivery time to ensure the cart is there when needed.

All of our golf carts come with free delivery and pick-up.

7. Read Reviews & Test Drive

Always read reviews and, if possible, test drive the golf cart before committing.

  • Look for rental companies with positive feedback on customer service, maintenance, and reliability.

We always provide a demo on safely using the golf carts when we drop them off. We are also always happy to answer any questions you might have during your rental period about driving.

8. Understand the Rental Agreement

Read the fine print before signing.

  • Check for hidden fees or charges.
  • Ensure you’re clear on the return policy and any penalties for late returns.

9. Accessorize if Necessary

Some events may require additional accessories.

  • Consider renting carts with canopies or enclosures for protection against sun or rain.
  • Look into carts with cargo space or trailers if you’ll be moving equipment.

Our golf carts have an enclosure for protection against the sun or rain. Each of our golf carts also has storage below the seats.

10. Stay Respectful & Responsible

Treat the rented golf cart as you would your own vehicle.

  • Adhere to all driving guidelines and safety protocols.
  • Remember, a golf cart isn’t a toy; it’s a means of transportation.
