The best rental service for Vespas in Barcelona is no other than Via Vespa! The Vespas are well maintained, high quality, and the staff speaks several languages (Spanish, Catalan, English, German, French).
Moreover, their office is downtown in El Born, perfect to pick it up and bring it back again. This is the address I sent all my friends too! They rent Vespas of 49cc and 125cc in the most beautiful colors: Red, green, blue, pink.
And prices start from 20€/ 2 hours. A whole day costs 40€.
Ask them for their Tapas Recommendations; they have great places on hand!
Cooltra has several offices around town and also has bikes for rent.
Prices start from 40€ per day – yet, the prices depend on availability.
Besides, the scooters are basic and fun, kept in white with a big, blue logo on the side. Personally, I prefer the classic red Vespa.
One super cool thing: They offer electric bikes, too. Generally, it is one of the few places to rent electric scooters in Barcelona from.
Vesping is the 2nd rental for Vespas. Prices start from 20€ for 2 hours and 40€ for the whole day.
They have the white-orange Vespas, and every single one is equipped with a GPS Satellite Navigator. Hence, you can better plan your trip and visit all the spots you want!
There are 4 pre-programmed itineraries on the GPS. Quite useful!
Their office is located close to Sagrada Familia. However, that may not be ideal. Although you have the blue and purple metro line options from there.
Personally, I prefer to rent my scooter downtown.
1.4 Ride On
Ride On opened their shop in Poble Sec, near Montjuic. You have the red and green metro line nearby from there.
Interestingly, it is the cheapest scooter rental in Barcelona, starting from 28€ per day.
The scooters, however, are very regular and basic. But if you are looking for the cheapest option, Ride on must be it.
And before I forget, make sure you check if insurance is included in your rental too.
1.5 Get Your Guide
Number 5 on the list of scooter rental companies is Get Your Guide.
Get Your Guide is basically an online booking service for tours and sightseeing tickets. Therefore, you can book with them your Sagrada Familia Ticket, the Park Güell Ticket and as well as your motorbike.
