How Our Tours Work
1. Choose your Tour
We offer tours throughout the U.K. Choose a city you want to explore and have a look at the fantastic tours we have on offer. We are currently offering tours in London, Milton Keynes, Hartlepool and Redcar. In London, we are offering a variety of micro-mobility tours, including tours on Scooters, E-Bikes and E-Scooters. When you have chosen your tour, pay through our secure booking platform. You will receive a booking confirmation via email.
If you are booking one of our E-Scooter tours, be aware they operate on a “Book Now, Pay Later” system. 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.
For a full breakdown on how this works, plus more information about the “ScooTours Price Guarantee” read our blog:
2. Download the E-Scooter App
If you are taking part in one of our E-Scooter tours then you will need to download the relevant E-Scooter rental app. Due to current U.K. legislation, all of our E-Scooter tours are done in partnership with some of the best E-Scooter rental companies in Europe. To access your E-Scooter on the day, you will need to download the rental app. Then you will need to create an account and add billing information. We strongly recommend you do this before the day of your tour.
All relevant information (including a link to the App Store and Google Play Store) will be provided in your booking email. For more information now, read our blog:
3. Arrive Early
We recommend you arrive 15 to 20 minutes early for your tour. This will allow plenty of time to be fitted with the correct safety equipment, including helmet and high-visibility vest. If you are taking part in one of our E-Scooter tours, it will also provide enough time for you to access the E-Scooter through the relevant E-Scooter rental app.
4. Safety Tutorial
All of our tours will begin with an introduction and safety tutorial. We will also provide time to practice on the Scooters, E-Bikes and E-Scooters before the tour officially begins.

So, no matter whether you are a Scooter expert or complete beginner you are guaranteed to have a safe and enjoyable time!
