You are fully covered by the insurance for damages against third parties. For damages caused to the scooter, or theft of the scooter, the insurance reduces the amount to be paid to an excess – in a case of compliance with the rental agreement. There is also the possibility to get an excess reduction for your scooter insurance.
The insurance which is already included in the rental price covers third party damages. Additionally, it also includes road assistance inside specific radius outside the shop. The damages on the scooter or theft are covered with a excess from 500€ to 2000€, depending on scooter type. All the accessories (helmets, top case, GPS, gloves, lock etc.) are not covered by the insurance and are paid apart in case of loss or damage.

But remember that the road assistance service only covers the area of 100km radius outside the rental shop.

Rafael E. - Valencia, EspañaIt's the third time we rent a scooter with Cooltra and, as always, everything is very good. This time we rented a yamaha xmax 400 because we wanted to make long trips and the bike had only 72km driven. The service, price and condition of the scooters make it the best scooter rental place I have tried in Ibiza and Formentera.
Marta L. - Málaga, EspañaI rent a scooter on August 25th-26th in Menorca and Carmen, the girl from the airport rental point was great, she gave me a new bike and provided me with all the information I needed to move around the island. I made the reservation online and saved some money.
Estiven G. - Berlín, Alemania.Perfect customer treatment, the girl showed us on a map the best places in the city. It was easy to collect and return the scooter. The bikes are very new. We will come back without a doubt. Thank you very much from Ponferrada. 100% recommended.
