The Preferred Way To Get Travel Around The Island
Put-in-Bay Golf Cart Rentals are the most favored transit mode on the island. As soon as you arrive at Put-in-Bay, your first stop should be to pick up your golf cart rental.
You’ll see many different Put-in-Bay taxis that can transport you to pick up your golf cart and bike rentals. A taxi is only $3.00 to most anywhere on the island. In most cases, a daily rental is a best and most economical choice. Weekday rates are generally a few dollars less than weekend rental rates.
Many golf cart rentals raise their prices as they get closer to running out of carts (which happens regularly) so we strongly suggest reserving in advance!
Put-in-Bay Golf Carts generally come with a map so you can create a checklist of things to do and note various points of interest. Golf Carts have been a part of the Put-in-Bay island culture for over 50 years. Golf cart rentals allow tourists to relax and move about the island on Lake Erie Leisure Time!
When touring, it’s always best to have an agenda. However, with your own golf cart rental, you don’t have to be confined to the rigid schedules of the Put-in-Bay tour train or search for a taxi to move to your next destination.
Golf carts give travelers the autonomy to roam our small Lake Erie island and ensure that guests can really have a great time. We always advise booking your Put-in-Bay golf cart sooner rather than later because they quite often sell out on busy summer days.
