A fun, flexible and easy day!

We rented two 2-person scooters and the owners of Island Scoot were great to work with. The transaction was straightforward, the scooters are in great shape and the riding on Waiheke Island was beautiful.

Kill joys
Oct 2019
We rented 4 scooters for a day around the island. We got there midday but they wouldn't do a half day rate once we arrived (had suggested earlier they would) but understandable. Then the long lecture about protecting the scooters and their excess if we dinged a panel ($3000) killed the fun. Excess too high (it's not like they're collector's items and if they are they shouldn't be rented) and lecture too long.

Unfortunately this review is incorrect....Our excess/or deductible is NOT $3000. It is $1000 for local drivers and $15000 for international drivers. The insurance rates are set by our insurance company, and are the cheapest of the rental companies on the island. As is customary, the client is liable for any damages/costs up to the excess amount, dependent on what the damages are. We DON"T charge the full excess/deductible as some companies do. In this case the reviewer's mother had arranged for us to relax our rules and hire to a family member under 21 years, which we don't usually do (nor do the other rental companies on the island), as the insurance excess is high for anyone under 21. Our excess is $2500 in this instance….The reviewer's mother arranged the booking and agreed to the terms in advance. But onsite her son appeared to lack understanding of the insurance process and seemed annoyed at the excess and our 5 minute induction. This is a quick overview of how to operate the scooters and clarification of the terms of the insurance etc, so there are no surprises later. We take the safety of our customers seriously and as a result have very few accidents, which we don’t consider a killjoy at all.

Great scooter experience
Feb 2019 • Couples
We spent the day riding around Waiheke on these scooters. Fantastic way to see the island - much more viable than bicycles unless you're a champion cyclist, due to all the hills. The owner was patient, got us up and running quickly. The low-end bikes are plenty powerful, and all the paved parts of the island were easy to navigate (be careful on some of the dirt roads leading into the wineries, though - go slow). We accidentally dinged up one bike a bit, but the repair rate was very reasonable. Strong recommendation.

Fun and Cool
Nov 2018 • Solo
I had a lot of fun riding around on one of these and taking pics with it! A few tips, it is highly recommended that you pre-book your ride by either calling or emailing. I made the mistake of emailing but not confirming, thinking they’d take walk-ins, but when I strolled up, they looked closed. I called them and someone came down to open the store for me. Mike ended up helping me out, and was only able to give me a 50cc because I was one person. Secretly, I’m guessing he thought I was too small for it. I could tell because he kept repeating that the scooter was heavy and seemed nervous I might drop it. Little did he know, I own and ride a motorcycle at home and that bike is way heavier. It was all good in the end though because I ended up saving $40 and still having a great time. Second tip, they only rent to people with experience. I’m guessing they’re not cheap scooters and they don’t want people to drop them. Third, wear sunscreen or bring some gloves! My hands got badly sunburnt. You’re riding out there for hours so make sure to protect yourself.

Scooter adventure on Waiheke Island
Nov 2018 • Couples
Spent a day riding the scooters around the island with my wife and kids. Great way to get off the main roads and enjoy the island for all of its beauty. Not to forget the wineries as well, to sample a drop of the local wines and foods, all great as well. The Island Scoot team were easy to deal, great service and reliable bikes. Thanks

Oct 2018 • Couples
My wife and I rented a cute orange scooter to explore Waiheke for a day. It was easy to make arrangements and the staff were sweet and accommodating. The bike was in perfect order and rode great! This is a fun and easy way to see the island, making it easy to park and be on whatever schedule you want.
