Can you rent mopeds ?

Was wondering if you can rent mopeds in sunny beach and if so is there a minimum age . my friend and i are both 19 with full driving licences held for 2 years.

If you can rent mopeds how much are they and what are the driving standards like eg are bulgarians safe drivers

thanks

You can rent mopeds,golf buggies,bikes,rickshaws and stand on elecrtic thingies. We rented a rickshaw and golf buggy and just got asked hotel and name-they were very trusting. think you could rent any of these for about 10-20 quid for an hour. You have to have your wits around you on the roads as you have taxis/road train/horse and carts plus usual trafic and other holiday makers whove rented something whizzing past.

For proper Mopeds and on road Quad bikes you have to have a full license, and they ask your hotel name, your name, license details and passport number, this is of course for proper places not just the ones in the street. You also have to leave either your license or passport there for the duration so they know you will be back. It was about 60 leva for one hour, or 70 for a full day. However the street ones do also rent them along with a full license but we spoke to a couple out there who were 'done over' as they put it, they rented a Moped and parked up in a street, they had only had it for 45 minutes and were supposed to be renting it for 24hrs, when they came back from eating to get on it, it was gone. They went back to the place to tell them and tell them it was nothing to do with them and they didn't call the police, just told the bloke he had 12 hours to find the insurance money. He then called the police to enquire and was lucky enough to have been helped - they found the Moped, with the guys it belonged to in the first place - they had bumped it and made him think it was stolen to get money out of him.

Just be careful only use proper rental shops not just the guys on the streets.

You can rent mopeds, but be very careful, the drivers in Bulgaria can be pretty scarey!

Thanks for the info Kirsty, sounds like another new scam this year!

thanks for all that info, really helped

I think we'll get a moped each but will definatly only go to an offical hire shop. Any ideas of the names of one of the offical ones? and do you need a credit / debit card for a deposit ?

thanks

Hi Sonny, there was no need for debit/credit card, although you could pay deposit using it if you wanted and although I can't remember the names of the hire shops, the one we used was behind the hotel Globus, 3 streets back and was 39EURO for one day or 230EURO for 2 weeks - this place just had basic cars, peugot, micra etc, but there are a few, one outside the hotel dune with magnificent cars, big BMW's and Audis and these were a little more at 79EURO a day but well worth the rent for one day just to feel the road behind a wheel like that lol.. Hope you enjoy
