Kos island scooter rent.

I am looking to hire a 125cc scooter, while I'll be visiting Kos island next week. I came across the following page: https://www.kosmotogp.com Do you think it's trustworthy to book from them? Any previous experience with this company?

Don't bother booking in advance. A popular Greek island like Kos will have many more scooter rental businesses than you can imagine. Once you're there you can find one you like at the price you want to pay.

Some thoughts: And what if the prices go up? Will I easily find a scooter that is in good condition? I think many companies in the Greek islands have some ancient mopeds. Is it worth spending a whole day hanging around the city, trying to find a decent motorbike to rent? Will they accept credit cards? Are the Greek bussinesmen trustworthy and honest? These are just a few reasons, I may consider.

And what if the prices go up? If you wait until you're there you can look for a scooter with a good price. Will I easily find a scooter that is in good condition? I think many companies in the Greek islands have some ancient mopeds. Yes, if you wait until you're there so you can see for yourself. Is it worth spending a whole day hanging around the city, trying to find a decent motorbike to rent? It won't take that long, and you can ask at your hotel for a recommendation. Will they accept credit cards? Some will, some won't. Are the Greek bussinesmen trustworthy and honest? Most are, a few are not.

Alex, you are making this more complicated than it needs to be. There will be lots of scooter rental places in close proximity to each other, with essentially the same prices and terms. Ask your hotel for a recommendation. Look over that shop's selections, ask some questions. Comparison shop at a nearby place if you'd like. Then just pick one. My experience is that you'll see dozens of shiny perfect scooters and helpful people.

While you're in Kos, I highly recommend you take at least a daytrip if not overnight to the nearby island of Nisyros. It has an active but not erupting volcano and you can walk into the crater. You'll need shoes (not sandals) as there are fumaroles and soft, hot spots. An amazing sight. The island is tiny -- one main road and a couple of very scenic towns. Great little tavernas along the sea. A great place for a scooter. Well worth a visit.

I have postoned my trip to Kos, as I stayed some more days in Kalymnos island. I'll l be in Kos on Thuesday so I've just book with them online.
I couldn't resist the temptation to have them deliver the moped in my hotel. This will save me a lot of time wandering from one rental store to an another, trying to figure out if the owner is honest, the scooter is good, the price is good and they won't rip me off in case I damage the scoot. At least kosmotogp have some very good reviews.
