Is it a good option to rent a motorcycle in Miami?

Recently some good friends spent their honeymoon in Miami. As they know that I am a motorcycle enthusiast, they asked me if it was a good option to rent a motorcycle in Miami to get to know the city. I had to do some research. I tell you all about it here.


Whenever I travel around the world, especially when I travel alone or as a couple, I rent a motorcycle at the airport.

It has already become a habit because I find it a perfect option to get to know the place.

Especially when I travel with little luggage.

I have rented motorcycles in Ibiza, Menorca, Lanzarote, etc.

When I carry more luggage, instead of renting a motorcycle at the airport, I wait until I get to the hotel and then rent a motorcycle in the area.

That’s my preferred option for renting a motorcycle in Miami. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, though.

Is it a good option to rent a motorcycle to get to know Miami?

In my opinion, renting a motorcycle in Miami is a very good idea.

It is a city with long distances for those of us coming from Europe (if you are traveling from the United States it will probably seem like a small city).

On the other hand, it seems to me the best option to move around if you are going to enjoy Miami Beach but also want to get to know the city of Miami.

Riding a motorcycle in Miami will free you from traffic jams and parking problems.

It is also a very good option, and definitely the cheapest option if you want to visit the surrounding areas, such as the Florida Keys.

Can I drive a motorcycle in the United States with my Spanish motorcycle license?

Definitely yes.

It is recommended that you obtain your international driver‘s license before you travel, but most Miami scooter rental companies will allow you to rent a scooter with your Spanish license.

The same applies if you have a driver’s license from Mexico or any other Latin American country.

How much does it cost to rent a motorcycle in Miami?

Of all the places where you have rented motorcycles, Miami has the greatest price variation.

The cheapest scooters I have found in Miami cost $38 per day, however you can find scooters for up to $300 per day, so spend a little time comparing prices.

Prices in Miami Beach vary a lot depending on the demand: if you go in high season it may be advisable to rent in the center of the city, at least if you are going to rent for several days.
