Why Rent an Electric Car in Key West?
Key West is small (just four miles by two miles) so parking can be hard to find during busy times. And gas can be expensive. That’s why electric car rentals are such a popular way to get around the island. These zippy eCars are easy to maneuver around the narrow streets of America’s only Caribbean island. And unlike a standard rental car, you don’t have to worry about getting sand out of the upholstery or carpets after a day at the beach. These rugged cars are tourist-friendly.
Two grades of electric cars are available for rent: standard and premium. [info_popup pop_title='Compare Standard versus Premium Electric Car Rentals' message='Most Key West visitors prefer deluxe electric car rentals because there is no deposit charged to your credit card as long as you return the car in good condition. You can book your premium rental through ToursKeyWest.com. Call us at 888-667-4386 to book your standard rental. Still not sure which is right for you? Call us toll-free at (888) 667-4386.

All styles feature open sides that allow you to enjoy the tropical breezes, offering you unobstructed views of our city’s great sights, our sunsets and the blue ocean waters. These fun, eco-friendly electric cars are easier to park than full size vehicles, and the open – air sides make you feel as though you’ve just entered a parade on the wonderfully wild and wacky Duval Street.
Rentals start at just 4 hours, so even if your cruise ship is just here for a half-day, you can still rent an electric car for a self-guided tour of Key West.
