ScooTours Price Guarantee


ScooTours offers a variety of E-Scooter tours in several U.K. destinations. However, due to current E-Scooter legislation in the UK, all privately owned scooters are illegal to use on anything but private property. This means all of our E-Scooter tours operate in partnership with an E-Scooter rental company. We have a number of partnerships with some really exciting companies. To find out more about our partners visit the “Our Partners” page.

All this means, that when you book a tour with ScooTours you will need to make 2 payments. One to us, and one to whichever partner E-Scooter rental company is powering the tour. We call this our “Book Now, Pay Later” system.


Book Now, Pay Later

The idea is to pay a deposit when you book, to reserve your spot on the tour. And then a payment on the day of your tour to access the E-Scooter.

The first payment will be made through the ScooTours online booking platform. The second payment will be made through our partner E-Scooter rental app. Our tours are powered by several different E-Scooter companies, including Spin, Ginger

Due to the nature of E-Scooter rental apps, the price of your second instalment might vary slightly. However, you can rest assured that the second instalment will never be too much.

In fact, we will put a figure on that second instalment, so you have an idea of the total cost when you book. Our “ScooTours Price Guarantee” ensures that you never pay more than what you are quoted at the time of booking.

For example: Our Milton Keynes Parks & Art tour is a 1-hour 30-minute experience priced as follows:

  • Tour Cost = £25
  • First Installment = £15
  • Second Installment = £10*
    • *ScooTours Price Guarantee ensures the Second Installment will not exceed £10, and therefore the total cost of this experience will not exceed £25


Why does the second payment vary?

Although we use various E-Scooter rental companies to run tours in several locations. All of these companies operate virtually in the same way and have very similar payment systems. They all work on a “cost per minute” system. The longer you ride the more you pay.

Therefore, the cost you pay on the day of your tour will vary slightly, depending on how long your tour is. There will always be some variation due to traffic or maybe extenuating circumstances.

That being said, our “ScooTours Price Guarantee” ensures that what you pay on the day will not be more than the price you are quoted when booking.


What happens if my second instalment is more than what I was quoted?

Our “ScooTours Price Guarantee” ensures that what you pay on the day will not be more than your second instalment quoted price.

If the price of the E-Scooter on your tour does go over this amount, for whatever reason, we will reimburse you the difference no questions asked. This is our guarantee!

Here is our Guarantee:

  • Cost of the E-Scooter should never go over the quoted price.
    • Example: If your first instalment was £15 and the second instalment was quoted at £10, the maximum you will pay for the full experience is £25.
  • We will reimburse all costs that go over the advertised scooter cost.
    • Example: If your second instalment is quoted at £10, but on the day your E-Scooter rental cost goes up to £12.50 then ScooTours will reimburse you £2.50.
  • To receive this reimbursement, simple take a screenshot or send us your receipt for the scooter use during the tour, if it is over the advertised scooter cost we will send you the difference no questions asked
    • Example: All our partner rental apps keep a record of your journeys, so you should easily be able to show us the cost of your E-Scooter on the day of your tour.
