If you are looking for a rental, the ideal vehicle for Formentera is the dcooter in terms of comfort and price. The island is small and with a lot of traffic in the summer, so it is refreshing to get around by motorbike or scooter. The main advantages are the parking (which is not easy, especially in August), on the other hand, car parking is paid per hour and motorcycles do not require payment.
For the cautious who worry about rain, in summer it usually never rains.
To rent a motorcycle in Formentera the following is required:
–ID card or passport.
-Valid driver’s license from your country or international permit if there is no agreement.
-Credit/Debit card or cash to pay the deposit (€20 in all cases).
To rent any type of vehicle you must be over 18 years of age. There are no exceptions on this point, although in other countries the driving ages are different.
For any motorcycle or scooter in Formentera, a driving license is necessary, what varies is the age requested.
– For 49 and 50 cc scooters no age of more than 2 years is required.
– For 125 cc motorcycles or Quads in Formentera, the relevant licenses or “B” car driver’s license with an age of more than 3 years are valid.
– If you are a foreigner, Spain has valid agreements with all the countries of the European Union and some specific countries. For tourists from countries outside of this convention, a vehicle-specific international driver’s license is required. The seniority requested varies by country.
All the motorcycle and scooter options on this website (including the 49 cc) are approved for two people. Both must circulate with a helmet.
All motorcycle rentals in Formentera include two helmets.
– The 49 and 50 cc motorcycles are rented with open (or classic) helmets, as it is regulated.
– For the most powerful motorcycles (110 and 125 cc) you can choose between two models of full-face helmets. Keep in mind that not all motorcycles have the option of storing two full-face helmets in the trunk, which is why you will see that many 125 cc models have a trunk (one of the helmets is placed in that trunk and the other under the seat).
Yes, all-risk insurance is included with the Franchise. Depending on the model of the motorcycle, the amount of the franchise varies. For example:
– 49, 50 and some 110 and 125 cc: the franchise is €400 and €6 per day is required to eliminate it.
– Vespa, Honda Scoopy and higher: the franchise is €500/600 and removing it is €8 or 10 per day.
All information below:
The motorcycle franchise in Formentera is the maximum amount that must be paid in the hypothetical case of damage or theft.
For example: if the excess is 400 euros, in case of damage the client must pay a maximum of 400 euros for the repair, from there the expenses will be borne by the insurance.
There is the option of requesting the elimination of the franchise, the cost will depend on the rented motorcycle, for example:
– €6 per day (€180 excess) models Piaggio Typhoon 49cc, Sym symphony 125cc, Honda Vision 110cc, Honda Mode 125cc, Peugeot Tweet 125cc, Piaggio Liberty.
– €8 per day (excess €300) Honda SH 125cc, Vespa 125cc, Suzuki Van Van models.
– €10 per day (€300 excess) Quad models Quad, Ducati, BMW.
This means that the client will not have to pay anything in case of damage or theft. It is decided to remove or not the franchise at the time of removing the motorcycle, not before.
It is important to take into account that the prices they offer you are final (in many cases they do not include insurance, helmets, etc.). All companies have franchises, the point is that the policies are clear. Another fundamental point is that there are different delivery offices, a good price is of no use to you if you will spend €18 for a taxi to pick up your motorcycle.
In conclusion, the prices on the island are unified except for small differences of a few euros, we would advise you to look for quality and not price, since in the end you will see that all the costs are quite similar.
No, just as we give you the tank with gasoline, you must return it the same, (usually full) otherwise the extra used will be charged.

To avoid this delay you can complete the tank before, you will see that in a full tank, a few kilometers do not make a difference.

If the suitcase is not big, you can carry it perfectly between your legs (or you can organize to bring part of the luggage in a backpack and part in a suitcase).

This service is limited to the availability of our rescue vehicle, so the waiting time will depend on the proximity and occupation that our staff have at that moment. In general, it is usually an agile service, although in the middle of the high season there may be some delays.
On the other hand, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. the service is interrupted for staff rest (in May and October from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.).
