Our customers sure think so, and here's why:
The average cost to rent a single jet ski for a day in the Austin area is $75-95+/hr (for 6-8 hour rentals).
Shorter rentals are charged $100+/hr. This means that renting for 8 hours can cost you a over $600+ per day, per ski.
The cost to rent a single jet ski from GoGo for the day starts at $295, or about $30/hour. In fact, a pair of jet skis starts at $545 which is about $27/hour per ski.
**That means you can get a pair of jet skis from GoGo for less than the cost of a single jet ski from the other guys.**
That affordability, coupled with the freedom to enjoy your rental at any lake you choose is why we, and the customers we serve, find it well worth it to tow (besides, it's a fun and simple part of the experience!)
GoGo Jet Ski Rentals makes it easy and affordable to rent jet skis for your next trip to your favorite lake in the Austin area and beyond.
In order to maximize your vacation time and provide a streamlined check-in and check-out process for you and the customers that come after you, we follow this schedule:
Pickups take place between 8am-9:30am on your scheduled rental day.
- Early pickup (between 6pm-7pm the night before) is available for an additional $100/single and $150/pair.
**Choosing this option can add 3-4 hours of riding time at the BEST time of the day to ride! Early the next morning! "Morning glass" is AWESOME! Cool temperatures, very few boaters out early, usually light, or no wind...definitely our favorite time to ride!
Returns take place the evening of last rental day between 4pm-6pm.
- Extended returns (by 9:00am the following morning) are available for an additional $100/single and $150/pair
**Choosing this option adds an additional 3-4 hours of riding time the evening before returning the ski. It is an option that is great for those that don't want to leave the party while everyone else is still hanging out or just wants to extend their day and take care of bringing the equipment back the next morning.
***JUST REMEMBER - Early Pickup/Extended Return MUST be scheduled at the time of reservation. We don't like charging late fees but if you run late we gotta charge them***
When you come to pick up the rental equipment you'll need:
*Anyone born after Sept 1, 1993 must have a TX boater education certificate to operate a jet ski as required by TX law. These are not required to ride a jet ski as a passenger.
The person reserving the jet ski rental and paying for the rental deposit must be at least 21+. (see FAQ question #4)
Riders of any age may ride as a passenger on the jet skis as long as they are wearing a type III Personal Flotation Device (PFD). We include 2 PFDs per jet ski. Additional PFDs are only $5/ea.
In order to drive/operate the jet skis, the operator must be at least 18 years old and must have a TX Boater's education certificate if they are born on or after Sept 1, 1993 (per TX law).
The Boater's Ed courses recommended by TPWD are available here at this link, make sure you keep the certificate information with you while riding in case you get stopped by Texas Parks and Wildlife.
The Boater's Education course can take a few hours to complete, so make sure you do it before you want to ride!
** Also remember that as the renter, YOU are responsible for the actions, damage or injuries that are caused by you OR your guests that you allow to use the equipment. **
We've got a terrific fleet of jet skis, to serve our customers in the Austin and Central TX area.
Our fleet is comprised of 2018 Seadoo Sparks with Reverse/Brakes and the upgraded 900 H.O ACE Rotax engine. These skis are quick, punchy and light enough for most vehicles to tow easily.
They are in excellent condition for you and your guests to enjoy at your favorite lake!
For more information, see our Pricing page or call/text 512-755-7161 for additional details.
The requirements are:
While you are ultimately responsible for your vehicle's towing setup, we are happy to double check your setup before you head out, so that you can be comfortable, safe and confident during your rental in case you don't tow equipment very often.
See our Resources page where we provide tips, pointers and requirements for towing and using our equipment.
If you don't have a hitch installed, we recommend UHAUL to rent a pickup or install a hitch onto your vehicle. TURO has also been very helpful for our customers to rent tow vehicles.
The cost is quite reasonable and the money you save ($100-$400 per day, per ski) on a one day rental with GoGo can typically cover the cost of having your hitch installed, making it even more affordable to rent from us in the future.
One of the best aspects of GoGo Jet Ski Rentals is that it makes it possible for you to take your jet skis to any lake of your choosing in the USA. This is great since it allows you to take advantage of less crowded lakes, lakes that do not have any rental options or adjust to a last minute change of conditions.
Whatever location you choose, you can be sure you're getting the best deal to get on the water.
Some of our favorite lakes to visit and have a great time on our jet skis include:
Unfortunately, at this time we DO NOT ALLOW our equipment on:
Your rental fees cover your jet skis, your trailer, gas cans, 2 life vests per ski, and all required safety equipment.
To book/confirm your rental, we process a refundable deposit of $500/ski over the phone at the time the reservation is made. (additional deposit is required if renter is not 25yrs+). By paying this deposit you are agreeing to the cancellation policy terms below:
* If you cancel 7+ days prior to your reservation, your deposit will be returned minus $20 to offset our processing fees. (ex. Saturday 8am rental = cancel before Saturday 8am a week prior to rental)
* If you cancel between 3-7 days prior to your reservation, your deposit will be returned minus $100/ski reserved plus $20 to offset our processing fees. (ex. Saturday 8am rental = cancel before Wednesday 8am)
* If you cancel less than 3 days prior to your reservation or "no-show", your deposit will be returned minus ALL rental fees. (ex. Saturday 8am rental = cancel after Wednesday 8am thru morning of rental)
***Cancellations are only accepted on a time-stamped written form (email or text) to avoid any misunderstandings of when a cancellation was requested.***
If you have any booking, process or contract questions, please call 512-755-7161.
First and foremost, if any type of crash/accident occurs please ensure the safety of everyone involved. Jet skis are high powered machines and should always be operated with that in mind.
Operating the equipment using caution, and within our guidelines, as well as, following the TX boating laws will limit the chances of most accidents from occurring in the first place, though naturally they're called "accidents" for a reason.
As part of the rental agreement, you are responsible for the safe, uninjured return of ALL RENTAL EQUIPMENT. You are also responsible for ANY damages (negligent, accidental or otherwise) to the equipment that may occur during the rental period. Likewise, you are also responsible for returning the equipment back to GoGo and any costs associated with doing so.
If for some reason a ski is lost, submerged, stuck, run aground, etc. call us and we will do our best to help you facilitate retrieval of the ski. Again, safety is of the utmost importance so please ensure everyone involved in any type of incident is safe as a priority.
Ultimately, you are responsible for any damage to the rental equipment during your rental period, so if you decide not to re-trailer the skis at the end of your day for safe storage, make sure you are confident that the skis will not be injured while not in use. Injuries/damage to marine equipment is very expensive to fix. We don't want you to have to find that out.
Basically, make sure you treat the equipment as if, if you don't treat it well you get to buy it without the fun of owning it.
If you don't have a safe place on the water (meaning the equipment will not sustain any damage) to store them overnight, then we require that you put the skis back on the trailer for the night and then park the equipment in a safe place.
Some lake resorts and rental homes on the lake have jet ski docks/lifts that can be used or rented for a few dollars a night, so check out your accommodation thoroughly to ensure that those storage options can safely handle the equipment you will be bringing with you, so you can plan accordingly for this requirement.
