If you are travelling and like to explore independently you should consider scooter rental to get you around. Sight-seeing in any country on two wheels can be exciting and exhilarating. Not only will it get you through the hustle and bustle of the city traffic, but taking a trip into the countryside through small villages and along deserted beaches will allow you to take the scenic route. Scooters for hire can be found almost anywhere. You may even be able to hire them from the hotel you are staying at. Some countries will have shops or private owners who offer this mode of transport for a fee.
You should always check for reputable scooter rental before you hire, making sure the scooter is in good condition as you do not want to pay for damage caused by someone else. You don’t want a scooter that will let you down when you are out riding in the hills! Some places will allow you to hire for a week at a time and the rates can be really low, depending on which country you are in at the time. While western countries are more modernised and strict about licenses, eastern countries are not. It is not unusual to see under-age children riding scooters in the east. Consider carefully before you leave your passport, as a photocopy might do. Read online reviews before selecting your rental company.
If it is your first time riding a scooter rental in the UK, you should be fine. However, if you are in another part of the world, first observe other scooter drivers to see if they obey the laws, take chances or make it up as they go along! If you want to fit in and stay safe you need to know who you are riding with. You should always remember that you are not in a race and there are other lives at stake. You will get to your destination unharmed and on time if you drive carefully.
