Top 3 Golf Cart Rentals for Your Hassle-Free Tour Around Gulf Shores, AL

Though driving a car may be necessary during your Gulf Shores getaway trip, why not rent a golf cart instead? With a golf cart, you’re sure to have fun cruising around while enjoying access to areas that are off-limits to cars. Plus, you can easily travel anywhere without the hassle of having to carry everything by hand. Just think about it: driving a golf cart is like riding in a mobile storage for your bags, coolers, and all your other beach gear for your day at the beach. And, in the event of an emergency, a golf cart may come in handy, too, as it would let you zip around with ease so that you can address the situation as soon as possible. Check out our three recommended Gulf Shores golf cart rental providers!

1. Island Carts, LLC

Island Carts has been renting street-legal carts to tourists across the Central Gulf Coast since 2014. They deliver to areas stretching from Fort Morgan, AL to Pensacola, FL. Although they don’t have a business location, Island Carts provides delivery and pickup service directly to your address. How convenient is that? It’s like Instacart for gulf carts!

Island Carts offers 4-seater and 6-seater golf cart rentals for rates ranging from $450 to $775. They deliver their vehicles with at least ½ charge or a full tank of gas by 4 p.m. on the day of your arrival and pick it up by 9 a.m. on the day of your departure.

Note that you must be at least 21 years old and have a valid driver’s license, auto insurance, and credit card to rent a cart. You can’t bring the vehicle to the beach, but you may cross primary roads and drive the cart on secondary roads with a speed limit of 25 mph or less. Always see to it that you comply with state traffic laws and policies on seating capacity when riding the cart. Also, parents and guardians, please remember not to allow your children to operate a golf cart as you may be subject to a steep fine. Any golf carts used in violation of state laws may be towed at the owner’s/lessee’s expense.

Customers love Island Carts for their well-maintained vehicles, which include seatbelts, windshields, and driving lights. Bookings are made via phone call, where their friendly staff will provide you with a total bill, including delivery charges. In case you need to cancel, you must do so at least 30 days before the rental start date for a full refund minus a $25 service fee.

Gulf Coast Rental Co.’s golf carts are all street-legal, well-serviced, and always ready to take you and your beach gear anywhere you want to go.
