Things To Know Before Your First Electric Scooter Rental

Are you planning a first time electric scooter rental? If so, then you’ve come to the right place! Here are some things that I wish I knew before my first rental.

Safety comes first

When it comes to safety, there are a few things you should remember. First is the helmet: it’s important to wear one no matter how short your trip will be. Also, don’t ride on sidewalks and avoid riding in areas where traffic is heavy or moving at high speeds—this can be frustrating for both you and other drivers! If possible, ride in the street where traffic is lighter or slower-moving.

You’ll need a valid driver’s license

In order to rent an electric scooter, you will need to be at least 18 years old and have a valid driver’s license. In some states, you also need to have proof of insurance in case something goes wrong with your scooter while it is under rental agreement. If possible, it’s best if you are able to supply this information in advance so that we can charge your credit card right away when we receive it from our suppliers.
We ask for a $100 deposit for all rentals except for most Santorini scooters (which cost more than $200). The deposit can be made online or over the phone; however, if someone else makes this request on behalf of another customer who has rented one before them (for example: parents taking turns renting out their kids’ share), then only one person needs make this payment—the other person doesn’t need pay anything extra!

Familiarize yourself with the city’s scooter regulations

  • Familiarize yourself with the city’s scooter regulations. Some cities require helmets, and some don’t. In other cities, it isn’t required at all. You should also know what kind of license you need to rent a scooter in your area—and whether or not your state requires one as well (some states do).
  • If you’re renting an electric scooter for the first time, make sure that it has enough battery life so that you can enjoy your trip without having to recharge every few minutes. The average rental period is around 20 minutes before needing a recharge anyway; if your rental company doesn’t provide this information up front, ask them!

Many cities have limited scooter parking zones

With the number of scooters on the road, you may have to park your electric bike in a designated parking zone. This is usually marked by signs and often requires that you park in an accessible location. The most important thing to remember when parking your scooter is that it must be parked in a safe manner where pedestrians can walk around it safely and not be blocked by other vehicles.

The scooters do not recharge themselves

When you rent an electric scooter, it will not recharge itself. You need to plug it in for charging. The charging time depends on the battery life and can take anywhere from 1-3 hours. You can charge at home or at a public charging station like this one:

One scooter is only designed to carry one person

If you’re riding with one person, the electric scooter is designed to carry only one rider. This means that if your friend wants to join you on a ride, they will need their own vehicle and driver’s license. The same goes for children under 12 years of age (or any other age depending on local laws).

Scooters are intended to be ridden on the street, not on sidewalks

In many cities, electric scooters are meant to be ridden on the street. This means that you should not ride them on sidewalks or in parks or other places where pedestrians might be walking. If an officer sees you riding your scooter in violation of this rule and asks what you’re doing, don’t lie! The best thing to do is say “I’m taking a spin!”
There are some cities that have designated zones where people can park their scooters while they’re not being used (or at all). If your city has one, make sure to check it out before renting any electric bikes or skateboards there so you know exactly what activities will be allowed within them.

Helmets are not provided, but they can be rented separately

Helmets are not provided with the scooter, but they can be rented separately at most locations. Helmets are available for rent at many scooter rental locations and cost around $2-3 per day. In addition to being pro-active in protecting your head from injury, wearing a helmet will help you avoid fines and traffic citations when riding on public roads or highways. If you plan on taking a trip across town with your electric scooter, it’s important to remember that helmets are not required by law but do provide additional protection against serious injury or even death if you’re involved in an accident while driving one of these vehicles.

Electric scooters are super fun and convenient alternatives to cars, but you should read up before your first rental.

Safety is a top priority when it comes to electric scooter rentals. You must be 18 or older to ride an electric scooter, possess a valid driver’s license and be able to ride a bicycle or skateboard (if you want). If this sounds like something that might not fit into your lifestyle, then consider renting an e-bike instead!

Although these electric scooters are convenient and fun to use, there are some things to know before you hit the road, so here’s a quick rundown of the most important points you should keep in mind. Whether you’re a first-timer or experienced user, the information will come in handy! If you need more information contact now 🙂
