Side scooter rental - price
The cost of renting a motorcycle in Side varies depending on several conditions, one of which is the power of the scooter. That is, this is how many cubes the motor and also the brand under which the motorcycle is released. As an example, we can say that motorcycles of such famous companies as Suzuki or Yamaha can cost more than the same motorcycles assembled by Chinese and less well-known factories. There are practically no strong fluctuations in the price of a certain unit chosen by you in different companies for renting a moped. If only the high season, then, depending on the demand, all companies slightly overestimate the cost. At the beginning of the tourist season or at normal times the price of renting a scooter Side 20 euros. This price is minimal and applies to Chinese models, but if you want to rent a powerful unit and a more popular manufacturer, you will have to overpay 5-10 euros, depending on the model. Overpricing in the high tourist season is 20% to 40% of the standard price at the beginning or end of the year. The next factor affecting the price is the insurance of the unit you rented. We advise our guests to rent a car or moped with full insurance for a small surcharge, which will include such details as small scratches, side mirrors or a damaged helmet provided by the company. Consider a different driving mentality in Turkey, be as vigilant as possible and do not give up insurance if there is the slightest uncertainty.
