Renting a motorbike or scooter in Majorca is, without a doubt, the best option to enjoy your holidays on the island. It doesn’t matter if your intention is to go to the beach in Alcudia, visit the towns in the interior of the island, visit the city of Palma or enjoy the views from the Sierra de la Tramuntana: Better on a motorcycle!

The island of Mallorca is known for its nightlife, its culture and its beautiful beaches with crystal clear water. In recent years it is also one of the favorite destinations for motorcycle lovers in Europe. If you wonder what the reason is, the answer is very simple: there is no better place to enjoy the combination of mountains, coast and good weather. As if this were not enough, the island has an impressive road network that offers a wide range of routes suitable for both scooters and larger displacement motorcycles.

Some advantages of visiting Mallorca by motorbike or scooter:

  • Comfort: “arrive, park, enjoy”. Moving around the island by car, bus or taxi can become a headache that prevents you from enjoying your vacation 100%. Avoid traffic jams and problems finding parking with a scooter, like the ones we have at Vintage Motors for rent
  • Freedom and fun: There is no sensation comparable to going on two wheels, feel the breeze on your face while you enjoy the exciting landscape of Mallorca
  • Commitment to the environment (Ecofriendly): Help preserve this paradise! It is known that the motorcycle is the least polluting means of motorized transport, its low emission of gases guarantees the sustainability of the Mallorcan ecosystem. In addition, it does not clog the roads or the parking lots on the beaches. Can you ask for anything more?
  • Savings: Although it is not the main reason, it is always good to keep a few euros on your vacation to allocate to other activities. Mallorca is the seventh largest island in the Mediterranean and getting around by taxi or public transport ends up being more expensive than renting our motorcycles. Renting a scooter or motorbike is also cheaper than a car: The motorbike consumes much less gasoline than a car and the savings in parking are enormous. While parking for cars is very expensive wherever you go, motorbikes can park for free throughout Mallorca.
  • Take an unforgettable memory: We all like to immortalize beautiful places and special moments in photos and why not, share them with our friends or followers on social networks. How many times do we lose the chance to take a nice snapshot because we can’t park properly or it’s simply impossible to do so? As we have mentioned before, if you ride a motorcycle or scooter, this complicated task becomes something super simple, so just have your camera always ready.
