Are you planning a trip to the beautiful island of Crete? Exploring the island on a scooter is a great way to see the sights and enjoy the warm Mediterranean weather. Here’s a guide to help you rent a scooter in Crete and make the most of your adventure.

Research
Rental
Companies

The first step to renting a scooter in Crete is to research rental companies. Look for reputable rental companies with positive reviews and a good track record of customer service. It’s essential to choose a reliable company to ensure that your scooter rental experience is safe and hassle-free. You can find R4W’s reviews here.

Check the
Requirements

To rent a scooter in Crete, you must have a valid driver’s license. In Greece, you can ride a scooter with a standard driver’s license or an International Driver’s Permit (IDP). Make sure to check the specific requirements of the rental company you choose. If not sure check our detailed Can I use my Licence in Greece blog post.

A1 – up to 125cc
A2 – up to 300cc

Choose
the Right
Scooter

When choosing a scooter, consider the type of riding you plan to do. Do you want a small and agile scooter for exploring the narrow streets of Crete’s towns and villages? Are you planning to be doing 20-25′ trips at max? Then Piaggio Liberty is probably the  way to go. Are you considering having a mix of city flexibility yet be able to comfortably drive to any side of Chania? Check our Piaggio Beverly 300cc. Are you after the highways? Sounds like renting a motorbike in Chania could be for you. Ensure that the scooter you choose is suitable for your skill level and experience.

Inspect the
Scooter

You found the scooter you want, you signed all the paperwork, you got your helmet, keys on ignition, ready to go. Before taking the scooter out on the road, inspect it thoroughly. Check for any damages or scratches, and make sure that all lights, brakes, and left-right signals are working correctly. If you notice any issues, report them to the rental company before leaving.

Avoid
Night-Time
Riding

Roads on Crete are not very well lit, and riders should avoid driving at night if possible. If you must ride at night, make sure to use the  headlights and be extra cautious.

Renting a scooter in Crete is an incredible way to experience the beauty of the island. By following these tips, you can make sure you have a safe and enjoyable adventure!

Roads
can be
Slippery

Its not the rider. Its not the bike. Its the asphalt. We have pushed the bikes to large lean angles with no problem, we have been barely leaning and we slipped.  The temperature of the island fluctuates a lot between seasons, with sub-zero temperatures in winter and scorching 40s in the summer. That places a strain on the asphalt, and riders should be aware when leaning the scooter as they might have the back tire losing traction where they least expect it.

Ready to visit Chania? Be all in. Make your visit count with a vibrant island life whether you choose a moped, scooter, motorcycle or car.
