WalkSmart Electric Scooter Rentals are an excellent way to scoot without the hassle and cost of servicing and repairs. Rentals are open-ended, meaning you only pay for the time that you use - without a fixed return date. Rent and return after one month or three months - the option is yours; there is no contract. Excellent for short term eScooter hire, or to try before you buy. You also have the flexibility to upgrade as new models come out!

FAQs: Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does the rental process work?
A: Please complete the online form, then come into our store. You will need to bring in a valid form of ID (either driver's license or passport) and a Credit Card. Rentals are pre-payment, so the first month/week rental is paid in-store with your credit card, and thereon automatically debited via your bank account on a monthly or weekly basis. For example, if you rent an eScooter for $110 per month on the 1st January- when you collect the scooter in store, you must pay $110 upfront. Every month or week thereon is debited from your bank account automatically until you return the eScooter. If you return it within one month (before 1st February), then there are no further charges. If you decide to use it for 3 months, then there will be a direct debit charge of $110 on the 1st February and 1st March. If you have any further questions, please give us a call.
Q: What is the minimum term for the rental?
A: The minimum term for the rental is either 1 month or 1 week - depending on whether you choose a weekly or monthly rental.
Q: Can I return the scooter or bike at any time?
A: Yes, you can return the rental product at any time. However, note that all payments are pre-payments, so for example if you have made the rental payment for the whole month on the 1st February, you have up-until the 1st March to return the scooter before you are billed for another month rental.
