Scooter rentals

Electric scooters are your go-to option if you would like to move around the city independently, and hassle-free. There are several companies offering this service in Valencia, and with their scooters you will get around quickly and comfortably, stopping any time you want.

If you want to move independently around Valencia, but you don’t like cycling or walking that much, and you definitely don’t want to be stuck in traffic, a scooter is what you need.

With a scooter, you can speed up on the city’s green avenues and enjoy the city’s upbeat rhythm. In this article, we’ll walk you through your scooter rental options so you can choose the one that suits you best.

First of all, you will find that in Valencia there are two popular kinds of electric two-wheelers. One of them is the regular scooter (a small electric motorcycle that you can sit down on).

These are mostly rented by bigger scooter-sharing companies that have their own apps, and sometimes even physical shops in Valencia. These are the scooters we are going to tell you about in this article.

Cooltra scooters parked in Valencia
Out of the three major scooter-sharing companies, Cooltra is the only one to have a physical shop in Valencia, aside from the app rental.

The other popular electric vehicle in Valencia is the stand-up e-scooter (patinete in Spanish) which looks like a bigger and sturdier version of a kick-scooter.

These vehicles are mostly rented in local private shops. In fact, many bike rental places will also have e-scooters for rent. There are no big companies renting e-scooters in Valencia at the moment.

Here are the two main types of electric vehicles you’ll find in Valencia. On the left is an electric scooter and on the right is a stand-up e-scooter, known in Spain as “patinete”.

There are currently three companies offering scooter rentals in Valencia (Yego, Acciona, and Cooltra). They provide similar services and the main differences are the models of the vehicles offered and the assistance given to customers.

The prices don’t differ much, but the companies provide different pre-paid packages and pay-as-you go-prices.

Here is a comparison table to get an idea of the options at hand.

Our recommendation

All options are very similar to one another, but if we had to choose one out of the three, we would recommend Acciona for the quality of the vehicles and their availability in Valencia, as well as their phone assistance.

However, if you are looking for longer-term rentals, Cooltra has plenty of extended rental options, for several hours, days, or even months.
