A. You must be at least 21 years old to rent and drive one of our scooters.

Q. Do I need a driver’s license to rent a scooter?

Q. Are there age restrictions for passengers?

A. Passengers must be at least 8 years old.

A. Scoot Coupes can travel about 100 miles on a 1.25-gallon tank of fuel.

Q. Are there any roadways that are off-limits to scooters?

A. Because of the speed limitations, only travel on roads with speed limits of 35 mph or under. When driving on the roadway, stay as far to the right as possible and make sure to remain in a single file line when traveling with multiple scooters.

Q. Is scooter delivery or hotel pick-up possible?

A. Yes. We offer island-wide delivery for an additional charge, from Hanelei Town along the North Shore to Poipu on the South Shore — and everywhere in between. Ask about it when you make your reservation. Delivery requires a minimum notice of 24 hours.

Q. Do you require a deposit on rentals?

A. Yes. You must have a valid credit or debit card to make the $300 security deposit, but we can waive the deposit if you purchase a $12 collision damage waiver that insures the Scoot Coupe and clears you of liability.

Q. Do you have a cancellation policy?

A: Yes. If you need to cancel your reservation, you must notify us at least 48 hours in advance to be given a full refund. Call (808) 639-0027 or contact us immediately if your plans have changed.

Q. What does the rental fee include?

A. The fee includes roadside assistance and an auxiliary cable so users can plug in their GPS or music player. Maps are available at no charge. We also offer helmets and sunglasses for children.

For an extra fee, we deliver Scoot Coupes anywhere on the island. You can also rent a GoPro camera or take a guided tour for an additional fee.

Q. Can I rent a Scoot Coupe for more than three hours?

A. Yes, our scooters can be rented for any length of time you’d like. See our specials page regarding discounts for longer rentals or let us know how long you need it when you reserve your Scoot Coupe.
