We rented a scooter from Retro Rent Scooters for 2 days, it was a 125cc Symphony ST we spent 2 days travelling to Faro, And beyond as well as in the other direction towards Lagos. Fuel efficiency was excellent and the scooter ran perfectly with no issues. It was good on fuel and we put €10 euro in the tank and travelled very far. We loved it so much we extended the hire for a further 4 days, the owner gave us a discounted rate and charged us the minimum to extend.
The next few days took us allover the algarve, further and further from Albufeira. Unfortunately I ran over a large nail which instantly deflated the tyre causing me to stop the scooter.
I contacted the shop and The owner was personally with us within half an hour, he took us to the shop in his car, gave us an upgraded replacement scooter a Sym Jet 14 fuel injected, a bigger bike with more power, even more stable in the corners, larger tyres and a fantastic ride. The shop did not charge us at all for the recovery, repair or otherwise which was fantastic.
The remaining 2 days took us on a 2 hour ride inland to the castle at Silves and up to Monchique the highest mountain in the algarve on very poor quality and dangerous roads. The scooter did not let us down on this difficult ride. It was comfortable and stable throughout. A further €30 in the tank and a fantastic experience later, we returned the scooter and received our full deposit back with no hesitation.
The helmets were extremely comfortable and sturdy.
The price advertised is EXACTLY the price you pay ex VAT. This includes all taxes and documents, 2 helmets, a chain lock and a fantastic scooter...
Please please hire from these guys, the staff are super friendly and speak great English as im sure many other languages!!! Fantastic
