Here are 10 good reasons why you should rent a scooter for your holidays
Scooters have low gas cost – Gas is expensive. All indications are for energy costs to rise. Fuel economy is great on a scooter – many people commute to and from the beach all week on 5,00€ – 10,00€ worth of gas.
Scooter parking is a breeze – Parking a scooter is a piece of cake. Most municipalities are waking up to the fact that they have to be more friendly to scooter and bicycle parking to promote these eco-friendly modes of transportation. We have loads of free scooter parking.
Scooters are probably a lot greener than what you are currently using – Scooters, at least the modern ones, particularly 4 stroke models, are very low in emissions. Also, the production and ultimate disposal of a scooter occupies a fairly small carbon footprint compared to other motorized modes of transportation.
Scooters are easy to ride – A lot of people don’t realize that modern scooters are automatic – that’s right – no gears to change. The brakes are hand brakes just like you would find on a bicycle. The throttle is in the right-hand grip – just Twist ‘n Go
You can ride a scooter with a dress or skirt on – Now if you are a guy, this may not be a key selling feature, but if you are a guy who wants to carry a female passenger, it opens up more options. If you are a guy that likes to wear dresses and skirts, this is a killer reason to buy a scooter.
You can ride a scooter without ruining your fancy shoes – A scooter rider does not need to operate a gear shift or brake pedal with their foot. When riding, your feet are flat on the floorboards and well shielded from puddles and the like.
Scooters are cheap to rent – The cost of a scooter is very competitive. The world economic recession we are currently experiencing has kept prices very reasonable.
Scooters have built in secure storage – Scooters are the envy of most motorcycle commuters when it comes to plentiful secure storage. Most motorcycle commuters have to carry stuff in a backpack. The typical scooter has lockable storage under the seat big enough for a helmet or some groceries. Many have hooks for grocery backs and slots for cell phones. If the built-in storage is not enough, adding a topcase such as a Givi box will easily allow you to carry laptops and other essentials.
Scooters may open up a whole new social scene – Scooters aren’t just for mods anymore. There are lots of fun scooter clubs who are arranging group rides, educational seminars, and other events. There are a surprising number of older riders. Many are just reliving their European roots and they appreciate how easy it is to feel young again on a scooter.
Scooters are just plain fun – In addition to the economic and environmental benefits, scooters are just plain fun to ride. You meet the nicest people on a scooter!
