    Survivor guide: Hiring a scooter in Mykonos


    Widely known as the ‘Ibiza of Greece’ many young people travel to Mykonos in order to experience the vibrant and pulsing nightlife. Tourism is a major part of the local economy on the small island and many people will take advantage of this fact by trying to rent scooters to young people on holidays. Hiring a scooter can be a fun and enjoyable experience but here are a few safety tips to abide by.

    Drinking plenty of water

    It is always a good idea to keep well hydrated in any conditions, but the Mediterranean climate of Mykonos can exacerbate the effects. Dehydration could cause you to lose focus when riding and could indirectly result in a serious road traffic accident.

    Performing a visual inspection

    A visual inspection of the scooter you intend to hire is necessary for a number of reasons. An unscrupulous hire shop may try and provide you with a faulty or defective scooter which could result in a crash. Secondly, performing a visual inspection and documenting any cosmetic damage to the vehicle will prevent any trouble when returning the hired scooter. It may be a good idea to take photos with the camera on your smart phone for further evidence.

    Helmet

    It is imperative that you wear a helmet at all times when riding. Failing to wear a helmet could result in a serious head trauma in the wake of an accident, even an accident that occurred at low speed.

    Insurance

    Many hire shops will only rent a scooter with theft insurance. That is to say, if you are involved in an accident, you will liable for the total costs of the accident. It is important to ensure that you have adequate insurance cover in the unfortunate even of an accident.
