Why Renting a Motorized Scooter is Perfect for a Nantucket Weekend

Why Renting a Motorized Scooter is Perfect for a Nantucket Weekend

There’s quite a lot to do in a short time if you’re visiting Nantucket for the weekend. The island is full of fun activities and beautiful natural sights. To ensure you get the most out of your experience, consider renting a motorized scooter. Here are some advantages they offer:

Save on Gas

It’s no secret that gas prices have spiraled out of control in recent months. Filling up the tank these days can be downright painful as you watch your hard-earned money slip away. This feeling will not change any in a rental car. But it might with a scooter. Many models of motorized scooter get more than 100 miles to the gallon – fuel efficiency nearly unheard-of for a car. Additionally, it’s cheaper to rent a scooter than rent a car, even before considering fuel costs.

See the Whole Island

A bike rental may be even cheaper than a scooter and obviously comes with no fuel costs. But the speed of a scooter gives you an advantage if you want to see the entire island of Nantucket in a short period of time. You can see all the beautiful, picturesque sites the island has to offer while not exerting yourself too much physically.

Enjoy the Flexibility

A motorized scooter offers a great deal of flexibility while moving from place to place on the island. For example, if you’re using cabs or ride shares to get around, you have to wait on someone else every time you want to travel. With a scooter, you can leave as soon as your ready. With a rental car, you may have trouble finding parking. A small, compact scooter will have a much easier time finding a spot. You can travel as fast as 30 miles per hour if you’re in a hurry or take it slow on a nice, romantic ride.

If you’re making the trek to the island this summer and you want to rent a motorized scooter, Nantucket Bike Shop is the perfect place to go. We offer both Kymco agility single seat and the two-person Lance scooter. Give us a call today at 508-228-1999 or request a scooter here.
