Basics to Vacation Bike Rentals

Whether you are a return visitor or a first-time tourist, a Key West bike rental is the best way to get around Key West. Island Safari Rentals offers several bike options and services to make your vacation on the island stress-free and fun. But before you go through our bike options, there are a few basics you need to know about vacation bike rentals. 


Book Ahead 

It is advisable to always check that your preferred bike options are available, pertaining to size and duration for rental. That way, you can avoid situations where you won’t get enough bikes for your friends/family/travel group, and you also won’t have to deal with more expensive short-term rentals because longer rental periods are completely booked out. Book ahead with Island Safari Rentals to get the best vacation bike rentals for your visit to Key West. 


Rent According To Your Plan

If your vacation plan mainly involves visiting certain places and lodging to relax for the rest of your stay, it is best to go for hourly or daily bike rental options. On the other hand, if you want to explore the island while on vacation, a weekly rental is the best option because it gives you the freedom and flexibility to check out sights and spots whenever the need arises. The rates for hourly, daily, and weekly rentals are different and you can save more with longer rent periods if it befits your vacation plans.


Ride what/where you know

Safety is a non-negotiable part of any vacation, and when it comes to a bike rental, you can’t be too safe. Hence, it is important that you only ride to places that you have heard or read enough about to be familiar with the routes or accompanied by a guide who is familiar with the area. Also, when it comes to your choice of rental bike, it is best to pick a bike that you are comfortable riding or a bike that is best suitable for beginners if you have no prior experience. That way, you can get around easily and cautiously. If you have any concerns or find yourself in any area you are not familiar with, Key West locals are friendly and welcoming. 


Stick to the law

Key West is one of the most bike-friendly places in the world but that doesn’t mean that biking is unregulated on the island. Before getting a vacation bike rental, be sure you have the minimum requirements for identification, a valid license, and substantial knowledge of the law for biking in Key West. For instance, Duval Street is the only street that doesn’t allow cyclists to ride on the sidewalk. Things like that are the information you need to know before getting a vacation bike rental to ensure that you remain safe, stay out of trouble, and have fun while in Key West.
