How does it work?
All you need to do is visit their website, reserve a scooter over the phone or over their website prior to your arrival, and then just get to your city of choice to pick it up. With more than reasonable prices, and flexible rental periods (up to a month), renting a scooter is an easy, fun and affordable way to travel around the city.
If you feel uncomfortable, or have never driven a scooter before, they offer two-hour long courses to make sure you have an enjoyable and stress-free experience. It is quite easy to rent a scooter, since all you need is a passport, a minimum age of 18, a Spanish driver´s license, and a deposit of 250 euros, which will most likely be returned. A driver´s license in Spain is pretty easy to obtain; all you need is an official translator to translate your current drivers license.
They have two different mopeds to choose from; a 50 cc and 125 cc cylinder. However, to rent 125 cc cylinder you must be at least 21 years old with a minimum of three years of driving experience. If you wish to travel outside the metropolitan area of Barcelona, an additional insurance is required. For longer trips, you should also consider renting a car.
