Vespa Scooter Hire in the Wye valley

New for 2014 we now have seven 50cc Piaggio Vespa Scooters in very cool colours if you feel like pottering around Powys on a Vespa! Pull up the seat, pack away a picnic and set off over the Gospel Pass, recently voted one of the most beautiful roads in the world. With a maximum speed of 30mph this is not your ticket to next-step-World-Superbikes but a lovely way to spend a bit of time getting away from the crowds.

Hiring a scooter is a “green” transport option – leave your car with us and explore the area in a fun and eco friendly way. The scooters come with a tank of petrol which will need to be topped back up before you return the scooter to us. A full tank costs £6.00 and should take you over a 100 miles.

They are easy to ride as they are “twist and go” so no gears to worry about. We provide helmets, gloves and maps. We recommend you wear trousers rather than shorts and a jacket as well as suitable footwear (flip flops are a no no)

If you passed your driving licence pre January 2001 you are able to hire a scooter without any further qualifications.

If you passed your driving licence after January 2001 you will require either a full bike licence or a valid CBT certificate.
(Compulsory Basic Training).

If you would like to spend a day taking your CBT test before you hire a scooter then please let us know and we can arrange for you to take your test with nearby Bike Train Wales. The CBT costs approximately £120.00 and is a very enjoyable way to get confidence on a scooter and is valid for two years.


Check out our video and phone us to book your scooter. You can hire them from us or we can deliver them to your tent/cottage/house/hotel!

Cost: £45 per person per day

“Well, if they are good enough for Griff Rhys Jones they are good enough for me!”
