Scooter Rental in Barcelona
Quick access FAQ's:
Why hiring a scooter in Barcelona?
Hiring a scooter in Barcelona is one of the best experiences every tourist should live, because knowing Barcelona on a motorbike gives you a freedom feeling you can't compare with any other way of transport. Barcelona is full of scooters and motorbikes, so other cars and vehicles are used to drive among them making it a very safe city where to ride a motorbike. What is more, Barcelona has been mentioned as the 8th best city in the world to live in by RESONANCE consulting. That makes us very proud of our city, not only as citizens but also for companies like ours because it reflects that the service we provide to the visitors is among the best in the world.
When's the best time to hire?
The weather in Barcelona makes it comfortable moving around by motorbike from March till December. Rains just happen during a few days during fall and winter. Barcelona as well is a relatively small city that can be crossed by motorbike in less than 20 minutes, so due to its size its makes really easy to orientate yourself in it. Don't think it no more: the mediterranean warm weather of Barcelona turns a scooter rental in a great summer experience.
What kind of motorbike hiring in Barcelona?
Among the different kinds of motorbikes you can hire in Barcelona the most used one is the "scooter". Petrol consumption of these motorbikes is low, it is easy to drive, it can transport a passenger, it has many cases and compartiments for leaving personal objects and it is really comfortable. For moving quickly and specially for enjoying a safe and quick acceleration that doesn't disturb the traffic the 125cc engine scooters are the best choice. If we wanted to go far away from the city and get inside the highway a 125cc scooter it is too small and should find bigger engine motorbikes. The motorbikes we have in Movendoo are the Kymco Agility City 125cc white colour. They are exactly like the ones you see on the pictures below:
Who can drive a Motorbike?
In Spain you can drive a 125cc scooter in two ways:
- With the B driving license (cars) if it is at least 3 years old.
- With the A1 driving license (motorbikes up to 250cc) or higher.
We ask as well for a year of experience driving motorbikes. If you are a foreigner and you want to drive in Spain you must make sure that your national driving license allows you to drive legally in our country. You may need the International Driving License depending on which country you come from (and this license must be issued in your home country before arrival into Spain). It doesn't matter if you have made a reservation with us: if your documents don't allow you to drive in Spain we won't give you the motorbike.
