Siesta Key Scooter and Scooter Car Rentals

Explore Siesta Key with a scooter or scooter car rental! Scoot Coupes scooter cars are fun open topped three-wheeled vehicles that are easy to operate, street legal, and gas powered so you can take them anywhere on Siesta Key a normal car can go! Using a motorcycle handlebar for steering (no stick shift or clutch), they create a more moped-like experience, but with disc brakes, roll bars, and safety belts. They can accommodate 2 adults (note: children younger than 6 years of age are not allowed).

Rent by the hour, day, week, or month. The driver must be at least 18 years of age with a valid driver’s license for scooter and scooter car rentals.

Convenient online reservations with delivery and pick up available!
