Scooter hire in Torrevieja is one of the best ways to get around the city. Indeed, with good roads and picturesque countryside lanes, it’s a great way to explore the entire Costa Blanca. Peak summer months can see the traffic in Torrevieja come to a complete standstill. Most scooters are small, lightweight and nippy, allowing you to leave the traffic jams behind. They are also very economical and quite a bit cheaper to hire than a car or larger motorcycle.
Scooter Hire In Torrevieja
Most scooter hire companies in and around Torrevieja stock 50cc and 125cc scooters. The smaller cubic capacity (cc) scooters are more suited to single or lighter riders. I have seen many Spaniards riding 50cc scooters with a passenger. However, if you are planning on hiring one and carrying a passenger, ask the company representative if this is actually legal. In UK the minimum cubic capacity required to carry a passenger is 125. Locals tend to bend the rules but you really don’t want to spoil your holiday getting stopped and fined by the police.
Scooter Hire Companies
Scootmar – This well established company is located on Calle Triana in Pilar de la Horadada. They stock both 50cc and 125cc scooters for hire. For longer journeys or the more experienced rider, they also offer larger road and touring motorcycles for hire. Their scooter hire is offered with free delivery and collection within a 30 kilometre radius. Pilar de la Horadada is less than 20 kilometres from Torrevieja. For those that just fancy getting out and exploring some of the nearby towns and attractions, Scootmar offer six different half day guided scooter tours.
Solmar Car Hire – Aside from car hire, this company also operate Moto Rent Torrevieja. They are located on Calle Gines Saura Sanchez just off the main Av. de las Cortes Valencianas in Torrevieja. They offer modern 125cc scooters to rent. Due to strict insurance policies they have a minimum age restriction of 25 years. This is the reason there are so few scooter hire firms.
Mobility Scooter Hire
Mobility scooter hire in Torrevieja is the best way for those with disabilities to get around the city. Although hiring a wheelchair is cheaper, during the summer months many will struggle with the heat.
