Sorry, Lightning Bugz is now CLOSED and they do not rent out electric golf carts. HOWEVER, Beach Bums does rent golf carts as well as other rental equipment companies on Anna Maria Island. Instead of renting a car for your next Anna Maria Island Vacation check out the Lightning Bugz in Holmes Beach. Lightning Bugz LSV’s in Holmes Beach rents 100% electric, street legal vehicles to vacationers on Anna Maria Island and surrounding areas.
Lightning Bugz LSVs are similar to a traditional golf cart, but an LSV can travel on roads with speed limits of 35mph, and may be driven at night. Each Bug has a storage space for chairs, toys, coolers, seat belts, and is child seat friendly. Enjoy your vacation knowing that you can park your car, and travel Anna Maria Island in an eco-friendly LSV from Lightning Bugz.
Tuesday morning I met with Hugh Holmes operations manager for Lighting Bugz on Anna Maria Island. Hugh explained the unique LSV’s and even took me for a ride. I was surprised by the smooth, quiet ride, and the amount of space inside the LSV.
Convenient LSV charging stations are being set up around the Anna Maria Island so while you’re out running around during your Anna Maria Island Vacation you can stop for ice-cream, plugin your LSV, and top off the charge on the battery. Currently there are charging stations at Joes Eats & Sweets in Bradenton Beach and The Historic Green Village in Anna Maria.
Lightning Bugz LSV’s are also great for weddings and events. Lightning Bugz LSV’s offers a Commercial line of Bugz for event set-up/take down, government agencies, Condo maintenance crews, and more. Prices range from $100 – $200 a day and can accommodate up to eight passengers. Contact Lighting Bugz to reserve your low speed vehicle today, conveniently located in Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island.
