Hiring Scooters

Hi all :)

We are hoping to hire scooters and do some of our own exploring. Can anyone let us know how easy it is? Particularly if we decide to stay at Club Med??

Many thanks in advance! Genevieve

1. Re: Hiring Scooters

at this point hiring of scooters by tourists for self-drive in Bintan is not allowed by the police... this may change in the future

in the meantime, you will find however that it is still possible, as long as you stay within the Bintan Resorts area

where to rent? either from the ojek moto-taxi drivers at the Pujasera food centre, close to the ferry terminal, or perhaps by talking directly, and discreetly, to a Club Med staff

how much does it cost? it depends on the type of scooter, and on your negotiation skills

2 recommendations: always wear your helmet, and carry an emergency phone number you can call, in case of trouble

Did you manage to find a bike hire place in the end? Would appreciate their contact info as we would be heading that way in a month's time.
