A driving licence ('B' for scooters up to 125cc and 'A' for 250/300cc scooters), which we will photocopy and give back to you, and a credit/debit card as a form of guarantee, on which we will reserve the sum of €500/700/1000 depending on the engine size of the scooter. If you don't have a credit/debit card, you can leave cash instead. If your driving licence was issued outside the European Union, you have to present your international driving permit as well as your current national driving licence in order to rent a scooter.
All of our scooters come complete with a lock, a top box, the relevant paperwork, third party insurance, and two helmets per scooter.
Riding a scooter is not easy. You could be involved in an accident, for which you may even be responsible. For this reason, you need to bear in mind that if it turns out you are unable to ride a scooter, we will be forced to cancel your booking and to withhold part of the rental cost.
You will find free parking facilities specifically designed for scooters right across the city.
We supply the scooter with a full tank and we'd like you to ensure it's full when you give it back to us. There are numerous petrol stations all across Rome.
Italian law strictly prohibits the transportation of children aged under 5 on two-wheeled vehicles. For children aged 5 and over, the law states simply that they must be large enough to sit in a stable, balanced way, in a position determined by the vehicle's equipment.
All of our stores are located in the centre of Rome, close to subway stations; when you make your booking, you can choose from which store you would like to collect the scooter; we offer a drop-off and pick-up service for scooters (€15 for each drop-off or pick-up).
It's up to you which of our stores you want to return the scooter to. We are open every day, from 8am to 7pm. On the basis of a written agreement, you can return the scooter to the store at No. 5 Via del Viminale even after closing time.
If you commit a driving offence, you will be liable for paying the fine.
In such cases, we will have to give your details to the police, who will send the find to your address. Due to the red tape involved, we will charge you €20 + VAT for every fine you receive. The fine will be delivered by the police office so that you can make payment directly.
