Important information about Key West car hire

If you’re up for some island-time, then Key West is your ideal destination for its snorkeling and diving beaches, like Smathers Beach and Higgs Beach. Other tourist sites include the Key West Butterfly & Nature Conservatory, Mallory Square, and Dry Tortugas National Park, all easily accessible using hired cars in Key West. Coming off the Key West Airport, the above attraction sites are nearby, making cheap car rental in Key West the most suitable option. If you're with friends or family, a people carrier rental would be ideal to use to explore the area. The major road, Overseas Highway, is one you can use for a top-down drive to other connecting cities like Miami. You’ll appreciate the abundant parking options of the metered and non-metered street and city-owned parking. They’re affordable, safe, and most offer 24/7 services. Whether you’re entering Key West by air or cruise ship, there are about nine car hire locations in Key West to access for a good time.

You’ll conveniently find parking thanks to the hundreds of lots and garages available. When considering hired cars in Key West, keep in mind that Key West traffic can be unpredictable. Aside from the occasional road maintenance and accidents that can stall you on the road for a couple of hours, everyday traffic is mild. When possible, avoid the MM 112.5 road and instead opt to drive hired cars in Key West on North Roosevelt Blvd for a smooth drive. Also, you can plan a trip with a cheap car rental to nearby cities like Marathon Shores for kayaking and jet-skiing on the water. The island is extremely walkable due to the close compact sites like the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum on Whitehead Street. Key West car rentals are a convenient means for a drive across the island’s heartbeat, Duval Street, where dozens of shops, restaurants, and pubs like Green Parrot exist for unwinding. The Ripley’s Believe It or Not Odditorium is one site you cannot miss, and luckily, it’s also right up Duval Street. Rental cars in Key West make drives on the roadway worthwhile because of the natural attractions along the way, like sunsets at Mallory Square and a view of the Atlantic Coast from Martello Tower.

While driving on the island it’s important to note a few driving laws. For example, adhere to varying speed limits on county, residential, and urban roads. Avoid hitchhiking on all roads, including waving or texting while on the road. While driving, it’s important to allow both motorists' and pedestrians' free movement because it’s illegal to cause any obstruction or delays. Also, note the threshold for driving under alcohol influence. Even first-time DUI cases can attract stiff penalties like a license suspension, so please drive safely. To keep up to date with driving laws, check Key West’s Department of Motor Vehicles for any recent law changes.

Key West honours foreign driving licenses for car rentals, including a luxury car rental in Key West, provided you accompany yours with an International Driver’s Permit. Additionally, you can apply for a permanent driving license if you wish to be a resident in Key West. You’ll need identification papers like your passport and proof of residency, such as utility bills or a physical address. Local driving license applicants must present an original proof of identity like a student or military ID card, a current photo, at least two proofs of residency, a social security number if you have one, and a certificate of citizenship.
