    During High season 2- 3 days rental costs almost 10% less per day than the 1-day rental fee, and for a 4-days rental or longer, you get an extra nearly 10% off per day. For the rest of the year, the 2- 3 days rental costs almost 15% less per day than the 1-day rental fee and for a 4-days rental or longer, you get an extra 10% off per day. Our web-booking system automatically applies the discounts based on your chosen rental dates. Below you will find the main reasons why the rental price decreased. Our pricing is formed based on the following reasons: 1. Each time you return a scooter, we check the scooter for damages 2. We clean and disinfect the helmets in depth using our Karcher steam cleaner, Motul® Helmet Interior pure formula, and Antibacterial Surface Cleanser Spray 3. We are washing, disinfecting where needed, and polishing the scooter. 4. Travellers who book the Vespa just for a day or two usually ride more kilometres per day than those who rent the Vespas for extended periods. Maintenance procedures require time, special cleaning and polishing formulas, and equipment.
  • Can (2) two people ride on a Vespa Primavera?
    Yes, but the Primaveras have a maximum load capacity of 150kg
  • Can I drive your available Vespa models with a car - B driving license or an AM - moped ?
    No, you cannot drive out 125cc and 300cc Vespas with a car or a moped driving license. It is illegal.
  • I haven't had experience driving a scooter - motorcycle, but I have a motorcycle class driving license. Is it a good idea to book a Vespa?
    It is not a good idea to book a 2-wheel scooter without having the expertise and feeling comfortable riding it. If despite that you still insist on experimenting during your holiday time, we suggest you book a 50cc scooter. We don't have any 50cc scooters. Also, consider that the Vespas is an Italian luxury brand of scooters manufactured by Piaggio. Damage caused to a Vespa costs much more than the damage caused to a less expensive scooter.
  • What if I want to pick up or return my scooter during your lunch break, 14:00 -17:00?
    We will be there to serve you. Please don't forget to choose your preferred pick-up and drop-off time on your booking form. Or inform us at least on the same morning regarding your pick-up and drop-off time preference.
  • I am planning to carry a lot of luggage with me, is it a good idea to take them with the Vespa?
    It is a terrible idea. First of all, it is not safe. If you cause any damages or scratches to the Vespa, you will be charged, as stated in the terms and conditions. You are not allowed to carry hard shell luggage with the Vespa.
  • I saw that the Touring edition has a front rack. Can I carry my suitcase on the front rack?
    The front rack has a maximum load capacity of 4 kg. If you are planning to carry a small bag on the front rack, please consider that it must not weigh more than 4 kg, it must be small enough not to cover the turning indicators and to allow you to turn your string completely, left and right.
  • Do you have a Vespa available? How can I view the availability and book a Vespa rental or a Tour?
    For checking our real-time availability and instant booking confirmation, please visit our web booking channel at: https://www.corfuscooterrental.com/book-online
  • What is the difference between a Vespa 125cc Primavera and a Vespa 125cc GTS?
    The 125cc Primavera has a maximum load capacity of 150kg. It is a lightweight scooter compared to the GTS. It is an ideal option for not-tall and lightweight riders. The 125cc GTS Vespa considers by many as a maxi scooter. It weighs (168kg) much more than a Primavera, and it has a larger frame and more storage capacity. It is an ideal option for tall or heavy travellers with plenty of experience driving a maxi scooter or a motorcycle. The GTS has a 36-litre capacity top case. The Primavera has a 32-litre top case.
  • Is it ok to drive off the road (gravel - dirt - concrete) with the Vespa?
    The Vespa is made to be driven on well-paved roads - asphalt roads. It is forbidden to drive off the road with Vespa. If you are looking for a vehicle to go off-road, please choose an option that meets these criteria, like a dirt bike, an enduro or mountain bicycle or an ATV-Quad. At this point, we want to remind you that Vespa is a luxury brand of scooters manufactured under high safety standards with leading technology, but all these get ruined if you drive off the road.
  • I need a 50cc scooter. Do you have any available?
    No, we don't have 50cc scooters. But most of the other scooter rental companies have them.
  • Do you have another office in Corfu or a sister company?
    No, we have one (1) office in Corfu town and provide a Vespa delivery and pick-up service in different locations across Corfu. However, it's important to note that we do not have a second office anywhere else or a sister company. We have two (2) official websites, one for each service we provide (tours - rentals) : https://www.corfuvespatour.com/ https://www.corfuscooterrental.com/ Our official business brand name and logo, "Corfu Vespa Tours & Rental", are registered and displayed on our websites and offices. Sadly lately, many other scooter rental companies have copied texts from our websites, and some travellers contact us and ask if we have a sister company. The answer is clear, no, we don't have a sister company.
