Many choose to use public transport in Barcelona as it is super fast and very popular among locals and tourists. However, we have already given you the benefits of other ways of getting around the city like walking, in which way you can see so much more of the city! We would also like to recommend a more exciting and exhilarating way of getting to know the city… by renting a motorbike.
By using a motorbike around Barcelona, not only are you able to see much more of the city in much less time, but you also don’t miss out on the small avenues and back streets that you can explore when walking. There are a huge range of motorcycle rental companies to choose from and renting these bikes is an extremely easy process and very flexible! Let us guide you how…
Best Rent a Scooter
For mopeds, 50cc scooters, and 125cc motorbikes, you can hire these through Best Rent a Scooter for a minimum of one day. You can also rent these scooters for monthly fees, in which during these longer terms you are solely responsible for the refuelling of your scooter. The maintenance, insurance, and roadside assistance are all covered by this company!
This is the better choice for those living in Barcelona for longer stays, those who have at least a year’s experience, and those who are looking to buy a motorbike in the future but wish to rent first. To book your scooter just check out their website!

Jotacafe offers some of the highest quality motorbikes in the city, ranging from Kawasaki KZ 550cc bikes which capture the soul of the Japan Bikes from the 80s, which were never sold in Spain. The bikes they provide are unique and special and are perfect for racing and riding at extreme lean angles. Bikes of this quality can be rented from 130€ per day, so they are not so out of pocket.

At Mondo Rent you can rent anything from rollerblades to motorcycles or even a smart car. You can experience driving lessons or trips with an experienced member of staff.
