General tips for renting a Scooter in Corfu

The great benefit of planning your holiday (but not too much!) is that you can use online booking systems to compare prices, and hire a scooter earlier to save money rather than paying whatever is being asked when you arrive in peak season on Corfu.

I always hire a GPS device before I set off to explore Corfu, whenever I hire scooters, ATVs, Quads, or any other vehicle rental on Greek islands!

And it goes without saying that you need to be sure your travel/medical insurance covers you for riding experiences.

The Cost of Scooter Rental in Corfu

The cost of a scooter rental in Corfu depends upon:

  • if you hire the scooter in high season or not
  • the power of the vehicle (a 50cc scooter is cheaper to hire than a 300cc scooter)
  • the type of scooter. Electric scooters are the cheapest to rent, followed by low-power scooters, followed by Vespas, and higher-powered scooters.

An electric scooter in high season begins at €30 per day in Corfu.

Vespa rental in high season ranges between €45 and €70 for a one-day hire, less for 2-3 days, and less still for 4 or more days rental and for rentals by the month.

50CC – 150 CC scooters cost between €18 and 32 to rent for a one day hire. This includes helmets and insurance and usually civil liability, but not fuel, and the price likewise decreases the more days you hire the scooter for.

Tips for Finding Good Prices for Scooters

The prices for scooters decrease significantly the more days you hire one. For example at Corfu Vespa Tours & Rental, the peak season price to hire a Vespa for one day is € 45,00 for a one-day hire of a 2022 125 cc Vespa Primavera ABS.

This price drops to € 40.50 per day if hired for 2 or 3 days, and the price drops again to € 36.45 if hired for 4 days. So it makes sense to do all your scooter hire in one go (for example for a week) rather than the occasional day.

There are online discounts, discounts for special holidays like Easter, and early-bird savings for booking well ahead of your trip.

Make sure to fill your scooter up with fuel just before you give it back to avoid extra charges.

Most rental vehicles (and even bicycles and electric bikes) come with a free pick up and drop off service and some include 24/7 roadside assistance – booking a scooter from a company with these free additions could end up making your holiday much cheaper if something goes wrong!

scooters and mopeds-parked-along-Corfu-streets-Kerkyra-Greece

The rules for speed limits of mopeds in Greece depend upon whether they are ‘big’ or ‘small’ mopeds. ‘Big’ mopeds are limited to 45 km/hr (28 miles per hour), whereas ‘small’ mopeds have a maximum speed limit of 30 km/hr (19 miles per hour).

If you are between 15 and 18 years of age, you can drive a ‘small’ moped, but you must have a moped driving license. For people 18 years of age and older, in order to drive a ‘big’ moped you have to have a full car or motorcycle license.

7. Do you need to wear a helmet on a scooter in Greece?


All drivers and passengers of scooters in Greece must wear helmets. There are hefty fines if you are pulled over by the police while not wearing a helmet, and you’re license will be taken from you.

8. What is the drink driving law in Greece?


Like many European countries, a blood alcohol content of 0.05 percent is the legal limit for drinking and driving in Greece. This is lower than England, Northern Ireland, and the U.S. where it is 0.08 percent. If you are a novice driver, that drops to 0.02 percent.

9. Are road signs in Greece in English?

Trip Anthropologist

Yes, road signs in Greece are written in both Greek and English. In smaller areas, they may only be written in Greek so it pays to take a photo of the Greek word for the place you’re heading to and refer to it if you start getting to rural areas where the English disappear from the road signs.

10. Can you ride a Vespa without experience?

It is possible to ride a Vespa without experience but there will be a learning curve and it is not safe to learn to drive a scooter in a foreign country. Vespas have automatic transmission
