Why renting a scooter for 1 day is more expensive than renting one for 2 or 3 days?


During the low season and midseason the 2-days rental cost almost 30% less per day than the 1-day and for 3-days rental or longer, you get an extra 10% off per day. During High season for 3-days rental or longer, you get a 10% off per day.Below you will find the main reasons why the rental price decrease.
Each time a scooter is returned, we are:
1. Checking the scooter for ware and damages
2. Clean and disinfect the helmets in depth using Motul Helmet Interior Clean Formula. (Specifically, Motul Helmet interior Clean is a Bactericidal disinfectant for the inside of the helmet: cleans in-depth, disinfects and neutralises bad smells. It's formula non-irritating to the skin and it is dermatologically tested. )
3. Washing and polishing the scooter. The maintenance procedures require time, special cleaning and polishing formulas and special equipment.
