Adventure Cook Islands - Scuba diving in Rarotonga and hire
Adventure Cook Islands Dive Centre and Rental Specialist
Rental scooters are the preferred way of getting around Rarotonga. Our fleet of two seater, fully automatic 125cc rental scooters are cheap to hire and easy to ride. Furthermore, our scooters for hire hold a large storage area for your wife’s shopping underneath the bike seat.
Our quality Kymco Super 8 125 cc rental scooters are very spacious and comfortable to ride. With their bigger 14″ wheels with large tires, these motorbikes are great quality bikes for people that are used to ride bigger clutch motorcycles or scooters. The Kymco Super 8 125 scooters are easy to handle. Nevertheless, you need to be an experienced bike rider and hold a full motorcycle license in your country of residence in order to hire and ride one of our rental scooters.
We have daily and weekly scooter hire rates. We also have motorbike safety helmets for hire. On Rarotonga it is compulsory for the rider and passenger to wear safety helmets when riding a scooter. We do not charge for riders helmets, and we hire out passenger helmets for a small fee.
All rental scooters need to be picked up from and returned to our shop in Aroa during working hours (Mon – Fri 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, Sat 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Sun 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm). We do not offer scooter pick-up or drop-off service from or to the airport.
Our rental scooters are in high demand and during our busy season we cannot take scooter bookings on short notice. During high season we recommend to book any scooter at least one month in advance to avoid disappointment.
In addition, we only take scooter bookings in advance when you hire a scooter for a minimum hire period of 5 days. For shorter scooter hire periods or on short notice in high season you will have to check availability at our office in Aroa on the day you want the scooter.
IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ!
Our company has a strict “experienced riders only” policy and we only hire out scooters to experienced motorbike or bigger scooter riders. Additionally, to hire and ride one of our scooters, you must hold a full motorcycle license in your country of residence (i.e. class “6” in New Zealand, class “R” in Australia, class “A1” in Europe). If you only hold a foreign (NZ or any other country) car drivers license, you will not be allowed to ride our scooters. Furthermore, a Cook Islands Visitors Motorcycle license without an overseas motorcycle license does not allow you to hire or ride our scooters. The absolute minimum age to hire and ride one of our scooters is 18 years – provided you have an overseas motorcylce license.
Please beware that the roads in Rarotonga are in pretty bad condition these days. It can be a fairly bumpy and hard ride on an automatic scooter as these are designed for cities with smooth roads. Therefore, if you are having back problems, we do not recommend riding a scooter in Rarotonga.
