Hey everyone, here I am on the trip of my life so far. I am going to be in Spain next week for my second stretch, this time hitting up beaches. I want to rent a scooter from Sevilla and drive my way to Barcelona over the course of a week, but I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for scooter rental companies that I can find in Sevilla for this purpose. I'm only 19, and I know there are several rentals for 21+ and some even 23+, but wouldn't it be possible to rent a scooter for 18??

Anyway, looking forward to a reply, thanks all!

It is extremely unlikely that you would be allowed to rent a Scooter at Seville and drop it off in Barcelona and your age is definitely against you being allowed to rent.

Unfortunately I have to agree with Casaianda. I don't have any specific knowledge of scooter hire, but point to point car hire is a service that is only offered by a few companies so I can't imagine anyone offering it for scooters. By the nature of the beast, most people only want a scooter for short local journeys.

Likewise, I think age limits will have been tightened up in the last few years. Ten or fifteen years ago when I had to go to Palma hospital, the beds, chairs and floors of Urgencias were littered with teenage holidaymakers who had fallen off scooters and mopeds.

I live in Spain, and you would be mad to try this journey by have no idea how mountainous Spain is.. it would take you ages and ages.. I live one hour south of Granada, and it would take about 16 hours driving in a a scooter, you would be days driving solidly.. Your body would take a beating too.. I drive a scooter, and I am on and off it all day, and believe me.. it gets tiring.. The best thing would be to take the bus..they are super cheap and incredibly reliable and on schedule. When you get to Barcelona try and rent one. One more thing re driving here.... the drivers here are nuts, on the big highways, they go 120-180 km per hour. Also, when driving a scooter, you must stay on the shoulder of the road.
It's a fun idea, but I think it's a bit mad.
