If you are searching for tips on how to select the right ECV rental for Theme Parks, then you have come to the right place. ECVs, electronic convenience vehicles, also known as mobility or electric scooters, are often rented for vacations and theme parks. Designed to help you get around easily and enjoy your vacation, it is important to understand that ECV’s vary in size, range and speed. Here are 3 questions that you need to answer so that you can select the best ECV rental for your vacation.
Question #1: What is the weight of the rider? Each make and model of ECV is designed to hold up to a certain amount of weight, e.g. the maximum weight for the Go-Go Elite Traveller Plus 275lbs, Victory is 400lbs, Maxima 500 lbs. Heavier than recommended weights will degrade the scooters performance in terms of both speed and daily battery length.
Question #2: Where will you be staying in Orlando and will you be visiting other Theme Parks? If you’re staying off Theme Park property or wish to visit other attractions, then ECV’s such as the Pride Go-Go Elite Traveller Plus or the Pride Victory are recommended because they can be broken down and transported in the trunk of a vehicle. The Go-Go Elite Traveller Plus will fit in the trunk of a compact, or mid-size saloon car, whereas the Victory will only fit in the trunk of an SUV or bigger. Also, the Go-Go Elite Traveller Plus is ideal for people staying in mobile homes.
Question #3: Should I choose a 3 or 4-wheel ECV? The 3 wheel versions are typically preferred by women who are used to riding a scooter because it requires less effort to turn the wheel. The 4 wheel versions are typically preferred by men, or by people using a scooter for the first time because they have a greater feeling of stability.
The Victory is a luxury scooter with an upgraded seat, longer battery life and more leg room.
Having answered these 3 questions, you should now be in an ideal position to choose the right ECV rental for your Vacation.
