Hi All, I've read on these threads that the keys for these scooters are interchangeable. That mistakes can be made if you don't do something to make yours recognizable. Does anyone know if that's true? Thanks.
It's correct that scooter keys are not unique. For example a key to a Pride Go Go regardless of the model will fit all models of Pride Go Go's.
Though it's rare but it can happen. I had parked my scooter outside the dining room one evening along side the wall as I was going to collect my scooter after diner spotted a waiter about to drive off with mine thinking it was the one there table guest sent them to get. Apparrently the table guest told the waiter that it was the red scooter parked along the wall just outside the dining as there was another scooter identical to mine parked there as well. BTW I had taken the key with me and apparently his table guest also had taken their key that's how he was able to drive it. Since than I place one of the ships luggage tag on the scooter and also tie a bright green scarf on it . Have never had a problem since.
If you are renting a scooter from either Caravacations or Special Needs at Seas. Most of the scooters look alike with the name of the rental company clearly marked on them. The rentals are also maked with a serial number for the company to identify which scooter has been assigned to what cabin. Most people don't realize that so if the scooter gets interchanged unknowingly there's always that possibility of a person being charged for damages they didn't cause because they didn't bother to check what scooter they were taking. Another reason to do something to identify it as uniquely yours if renting.
