Scooter Rental Questions

How do I book a rental scooter?

What is the minimum subscription period?
Our minimum rental period is 4 weeks. We provide free delivery and collection of your rental scooter within your subscription.
What is the difference between renting and a subscription?
Typically the biggest difference between a subscription and a contract is that a contract is more rigid, with minimal flexibility. Once you enter into a contract, your terms are generally fixed and until you are released from your contract, you are unable to request any changes.

A subscription allows the renter to adjust the conditions, or add value as their situation changes.

Our plan offers a low base rate, allowing you the option to reduce your excess, add another driver, or simply rent with us at the lower rate – you decide!

Our 30 day minimum rental period allows you the freedom to test your ride before entering into any long-term commitment. Want an upgrade after 8,000kms? No problem! Simply request a swap via our user-friendly online system and we’ll have a new scooter on its way.

Scooturu Rentals offer a very affordable plan at a base rate of just $77 per week. Should you prefer fortnightly payment, you can also select this option. Our plan is designed to accommodate you should you aim to rent for months at a time – the longer you drive, the more you save!
