Best electric scooter hire in Valencia city centre.
These three e-scooter rental companies in Valencia are all located in the city centre (Ciutat Vella). Their prices are all pretty much the same, so if you want to rent an electric scooter in Valencia city centre you should check these out and choose your favourite.
Eco Bike Rent. These guys have four locations around the centre of Valencia. They have a huge stock across their stores and you can collect from one and drop it back to a different one to make it nice and easy. They have plenty of electric scooter tours available too.
Brisa also has multiple locations around the city making e-scooter hire in Valencia as convenient as possible.
Valencia Bike Rental is located north of the park near to the Benimaclet neighbourhood. And as this is also an area popular with local students, prices are often cheaper than those in the centre.
Best e-scooter hire near the beach in Valencia.
Bikealao is the best place to hire an e-scooter near the beach in Valencia. They are located in the Maritim area and have great rates for two or three-day rentals. Zipping up and down the wide promenade and exploring the little cafes and restaurants along the beach is a great way to spend an afternoon in Valencia.
Best long-term e-scooter rental in Valencia.
Smartride offer a more corporate feel to electrical scooter hire in Valencia. Although their focus seems to be on targeting local companies they do still offer individual e-scooter hire for days or weeks. So if you’re staying in Valencia for a while and want to rent an e-scooter for your whole stay you should consider Smartride.
The basic rules for electric scooter hire in Valencia
Although e-scooters are pretty easy to ride, there are still some basic rules that you must follow when renting an electric scooter in Valencia.
Always wear a helmet
Yes, I know that if you look around you won’t see many people wearing helmets while riding an e-scooter in Valencia. The official rules state you should wear one, but that’s more to cover the guys renting them out. You can get one from the guys that off daily e-scooter rental.
Over 16s only
You need to be at least 16 to hire an electric scooter in Valencia.
The weight limit is 100 kg on all of the scooters making it pretty impossible to get two adults on one anyway. But even if you and your skinny friend could, it’s against the rules to have more than one rider on an e-scooter in Valencia.
Don’t ride drunk, or even slightly tipsy
The laws are the same as for car drivers. Don’t drink and drive. So as tempting as it might be to sink a few beers and then zip around on an e-scooter to tour Valencia, it’s strongly advised that you don’t.
Do you need a licence to rent an electric scooter in Valencia?
No, you don’t need a license to rent an e-scooter in Valencia. You just need to be at least 16 years old.
How fast and easy to use are the e-scooters?
The e-scooters in Valencia are very easy to use, making them a perfect way to explore the city. They have two-speed settings, one that restricts it to 10 km/h, which is ideal for busy city streets, and the other which allows you to ride the scooter at speeds up to 25 km/h, which is perfect for zipping through Turia park and up and down the promenade at Malvarrosa Beach.
What about the battery life?
Wondering how long the battery lasts? The e-scooters in Valencia all offer approximately 30km from one battery charge. Which is going to be plenty if you’re having it for less than 24 hours. If, though, you’re renting an electric scooter in Valencia for more than a day, the rental company will give you a charging cable for you to use back home in your apartment or even in a cafe while grabbing a coffee.
So, that’s all the info you need regarding electric scooter hire in Valencia. I rented my e-scooter from Bikealao near the beach and kept it for three days for €60. I recommend that you first take it to a park or the beach and give yourself some time to be confident riding it. It won’t take long to master it as e-scooters are a very easy way to get around.
Overall, with its incredible amount of bike lanes and flat landscape, riding an electric scooter in Valencia is a great way to explore and enjoy one of Spain’s most beautiful cities. Enjoy the ride.

I’m not really a stickman, but it seems that I like portraying myself as one.
I’m an English guy who’s been travelling since 2017. I was never good at taking photos, sketching just seems to work better for me, and in my opinion, why do you want to see other people’s 4K videos and pictures of the world? Surely it’s better to see it for yourself. You get in touch through the contact page or Instagram.
