Want to rent a scooter to visit the Portuguese capital freely? The editorial staff tells you all about scooter rental in Lisbon.

Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, covers an area of 83.84 km² and has many districts with different atmospheres. Moreover, some of them - the most popular and authentic - are perched on hills from which dozens of small streets wind their way. Add to this the fact that the city can be congested and saturated with traffic jams at busy times, and it is easy to understand the interest of renting a scooter in Lisbon.

On the one hand, visiting Lisbon by scooter will give you a great feeling of freedom, the ability to rush into small winding corners of the city like mice in a house. On the other hand, you will sail at your own pace, without tiring to climb the seven hills - which make up the Portuguese capital - on a bicycle, all to take in the breathtaking view of the sea. And what's more, you can easily get to Sintra, or beaches like Cascais, without having to worry about parking, the bête noire of motorists in Lisbon.

Here is without further ado where and how to rent a scooter in Lisbon :

Tips for choosing your scooter

Before taking a vehicle in hand, you should always read the terms of the rental contract and check that there are no hidden defects. You never know who you're dealing with, and the risk of being ripped off always hangs like a sword of Damocles over your wallet...

Think about the use you will have of the vehicle: the power of the engines can range from 50 cc to 700 cc, which will impact the rental rate.

When you pick up the keys, check that the scooter rental contract in Lisbon states that you have to pay for the keys:

  • The name of the rental company,
  • The brand,
  • The model,
  • The license plate number of the vehicle,
  • Your identity,
  • The amount of the security deposit,
  • Clauses that may result in its non-reimbursement,
  • Mileage on the odometer,
  • The date and time of the start of the rental,
  • The type of insurance of the scooter (all-risk, third party),
  • The amount of the deductible
  • Make an inventory of the scooter (fairing, brake, mirrors, seal, wheels, accelerator, exhaust, etc.).

Some checks may seem so obvious that they are useless - check the name of the rental company, for example - but in the event of an accident, you will be poorly covered if these routine checks have been neglected.
