Renting a Scooter on Marco Island
Located in Old Marco, the northern part of the island, is an extremely popular bike and scooter rental place known as Island Bike Shop. The store has a wide range of vehicles for rent, including tandem bikes, mobility scooters (up to 300lbs weight capacity), and beach wheelchairs that can handle uneven sandy surfaces.
You can rent a 49cc scooter for two by the hour, week, or month. Here are a couple of sample prices for scooter rental: $25 for one hour and $70 per day. You can rent one for the entire week for $250. Additional weeks are only $150.
Riding on a scooter is the perfect way to explore all corners of the island. You can also ride further to Naples or Fiddlers Creek. Because of that, scooters tend to get snatched up fast during the busy season. Instead of reservations, the store works on a ‘first come first serve’ basis.
If you want a golf cart or Vespa scooter, consider Beach Bugz, located in Naples.

Up for a Slingshot Ride?
For those who aren’t familiar with the Polaris Slingshot, it’s an open-top road vehicle with three wheels and somewhat futuristic design. Despite its distinctive look, it’s entirely safe and street legal, and you can ride it on public roads without any concerns. They’re perfect for hitting the beach stores and restaurants.
Slingshot rides are extremely popular along the coast of Florida, in Marco Island and nearby Naples. You can rent one online and have it delivered to where you’re staying and have it picked up when you’re finished with it.
If you’d like to take a look at a Slingshot before you rent one, the closest Slingshot rental store is in Mannix Drive, in Naples. It’s near the Forest Glen Golf and Country Club and about a half-hour by car from the center of Marco Island.
3893 Mannix Drive, # 501
Naples, Fl, 34114
The prices are usually between $60 and $70 for an hour, with discounts for longer-term rentals. Rent one for the entire day for around $300. However, you should be able to visit all points of interest in both Naples and Marco Island in 8 hours, even if you throw in a more extended break.
Slingshots are roofless and sporty. They make for a fun way to explore the island and beyond. A trip to Goodland and Isles of Capri will take you back in time to a simpler, more casual Florida. A ride over to 5th Avenue in Naples is a great place to have lunch at a sidewalk cafe’. Stop by Hammock Bay or Fiddlers Creek for a beverage or a round of golf at their luxurious clubs. Enjoy the incredible scenery of lakes and palm trees.

Things to Keep in Mind
Before you go for a motorcycle, Slingshot or scooter rental, you should be familiar with specific regulations.
To rent a scooter, you must be at least 18 years old and own a valid driver’s license. Also, you have to keep your credit card on file at the store should anything happen to the scooter.
Renting a Slingshot also requires a valid driver’s license, but the age requirement is higher at 21. The good news is that everything is unlimited mileage.
Sightsee on the Road
Traffic is exceptionally well-regulated in the area, and a Marco Island scooter rental can be a convenient way to cover all of the exciting areas in town quickly.
Of course, a Slingshot may take everything up to a new level. Also, you can go out of town and visit nearby places such as Goodland and Naples, which you might find to have a completely different buzz than Marco Island.
