We love meeting our customers so we try our very best to deliver when someone is present, that way we can show our thanks and give you some pointers about your cart rental.

How can I make sure my cart has enough range for my next Emerald Coast excursion?

Cart Upkeep for an enjoyable experience

Electric Carts  (range 18-20 ice on a full charge)— The cart will need to be charged every night and we also encourage you to charge at all times when you are home. That way battery life will be available and ready for the next adventure.

Additional Safety Tips/Good Practices/Rules

LSV Safety/Good Practices/Rules:

  • Cart keys should never be stored in the ignition or in a cupholder under any circumstance, keep it with you at all times.  Stolen carts happen and with this it will result in a claim against your personal insurance (not ours).  
  • Any and ALL money owed from Citations ticketed or Tolls to renter(s) during possession of LSV will be billed to the credit card of file.
  • All drivers must sign a VacaCart rental agreement, provide proof of a valid driver’s license, and a copy of current vehicle insurance card.
  • Any damages that occur during the rental period are the responsibility of the primary renter. Report all damages at the time they occur. You may choose to pay for damage that you cause to the cart and without involving your insurance. Here at VacaCarts we understand small accidents can happen especially with children around so we offer you a damage forgiveness of $250 dollars, anything above value will be charged to the card on file.
  • All contracted renters accept the responsibility for any charges to their credit card for the recovery of a vehicle that was not able to be returned on time.
  • Failure to return the LSV upon expiration of the rental period and failure to pay all amounts due (including costs for damage to the property or equipment) are prima facie evidence of intent to defraud, punishable in accordance with section 812.155, Florida Statutes.

We rented two golf carts from VacaCarts for our vacation. Throughout the reservation process, our stay, and cart pick up, Jeff was very responsive, courteous, and professional. The carts were waiting for us when we arrived. They looked great, worked well and the Bluetooth speakers were a nice touch. We had zero problems with our experience. We will definitely rent from VacaCarts again! Thanks Jeff and VacaCarts for making the process easy and our trip more fun!

We had a wonderful experience! Our rental company took the golf cart away at the last minute and we needed a golf cart for my disabled son to go to the beach. They answered immediately and had the golf cart to our rental within an hour. The golf cart was clean, fully charged and had all of the bells and whistles. I highly recommend them and will definitely be using them again.

Amazing personal customer service from owners, Jeff and Bill and carts are new and clean. Last year, my family rented from one of the larger rental companies in the area and the experience was horrible. They charged our credit card for damages we did not cause after we flew home. I couldn't even get someone on the phone to talk about it with me. I had to spend hours going back and forth to get it resolved. This year, I found Vaca Carts online and gave them a call to discuss options. Jeff was so personable on the phone and even gave me dinner recommendations for places near our airbnb. We had a small damage to one of the charging cables and they told us not to worry. Good people with quality carts and service.
