FAQs 4 BUZZ

A – EUROPEAN LAW REQUIRES ALL NON EUROPEAN DRIVING LICENCES TO BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN INTERNATIONAL DRIVING PERMIT (IDP) THESE MAY ONLY BE OBTAINED IN YOUR COUNTRY OF ORIGIN WHICH IS USUALLY VERY EASY TO DO – THEY ARE ISSUED ”OVER THE COUNTER”. (e.g. in the USA the AAA charge $20.00)

WE ARE ALLOWED TO SUPPLY THE VEHICLE ON YOUR NATIONAL LICENCE BUT SHOULD YOU BE STOPPED YOU COULD BE FINED €400.00 FOR NOT HAVING AN IDP.

A – IN SCOOTER BAYS (WHITE RECTANGLES) you may take up 2 places if necessary.

ALONG A CONTINUOUS BLUE LINE – this is where normal cars park, you are also allowed to park perpendicular to the kerb.

IN A BLUE RECTANGLE – THIS IS PARTICULARLY USEFUL FOR THOSE TAKING OUT 2 BUGGIES OR MORE BECAUSE YOU CAN PARK UP TO 5 IN ONE RECTANGLE, PLEASE DO NOT – OCCUPY THIS SPACE WITH JUST 1 BUGGY …. OTHER MOTORISTS WILL  NOT BE PLEASED WITH YOU.

COMMON SENSE WORKS WELL IN ROME, USUALLY IF YOU ARE NOT OF OBSTRUCTION YOU ARE NOT FINED … WE NOW HAVE HAD 8 PARKING FINES IN NEARLY AS MANY YEARS IN THE BUSINESS.

PARKING IS ALWAYS FREE FOR THE BUGGIES!

A  NO, THEY ARE NOT AND THE FINE IS €95.00 PLUS €15.00 WE CHARGE TO MANAGE THE FINE.

A – IF YOU ARE ON A 5 HOUR RENTAL THE LATEST IS CLOSING TIME (VARIES ACCORDING TO SEASON) IF YOU ARE ON A 10 HOUR RENTAL YOU MAY RETURN AFTER HOURS BUT USUALLY NO LATER THAN 22.30.

Q. HOW LONG DO THE BATTERIES LAST.

A – BATTERY RANGE IS MORE TO DO WITH DISTANCE RATHER THAN TIME – THE AVERAGE IS 40KM AND THIS VARIES IN ACCORDANCE TO LOAD – TERRAIN AND DRIVING STYLE. THE PRE-SET TOURS ON OUR IPADS ARE AROUND 23 KM SO YOU HAVE PLENTY OF MARGIN TO GET LOST … WHICH IS PART OF THE FUN

A – THE COMBINED WEIGHT OF BOTH PASSENGERS MUST NOT EXCEED 180KG OR 400 LB

A – YOU WOULD NEED TO RENT 2 BUGGIES (DISCOUNTS MAY APPLY IN THE LOW SEASON)

A – ANYTHING OVER 6’4” COULD GET QUITE UNCOMFORTABLE BUT YOU WILL BE GETTING OUT OF THE BUGGY A LOT WHICH MAKES IT BEARABLE …

A – YOU CAN BY ALL MEANS BUT IT WILL BE UNLIKELY YOU WILL FIND IT ON YOUR RETURN 🙂 – YOU WOULD THEN OWE US €490.00

A – NO, PLEASE TAKE THE KEYS WITH YOU AND SHUT THE DOORS WITHOUT LOCKING THEM – THE LOCKS ARE DELICATE AND YOU COULD LOCK YOURSELVES OUT

A – 21 WITH A LICENCE UNLESS TRAVELLING WITH ADULTS (E.G. PARENTS IN WHICH CASE 18 WITH A LICENCE)

A – BUZZ IS STRICTLY FOR 2 PEOPLE  AND CHILD SEATS ARE NOT PROVIDED

A – IN ITALY YOU MAY DRIVE UP TO 125CC WITH AN ORDINARY CAR LICENCE

A  YES, YES, YES! WE ONLY RENT TO EXPERIENCED DRIVERS AND IF YOU ARE NOT, IT WOULD BE SUICIDAL OF YOU TO ATTEMPT DRIVING A SCOOTER IN ROME. BUT, WE HAVE THE SOLUTION, RENTA A BUZZ INSTEAD (LESS ICONIC THAN A VESPA BUT DEFINITELY NO LESS FUN ;))

A – A VALID DRIVING LICENCE AND A CREDIT CARD (NOT A DEBIT CARD) – WE DO NOT BLOCK ANY FUNDS ON THE CARD NOR DO WE DEBIT ANY SUM ON IT – WE ONLY KEEP IT’S DETAILS ON FILE AGAINST POSSIBLE DAMAGES AND FINES

A – IN SCOOTER BAYS (WHITE RECTANGLES) OR BASICALLY WHEREVER YOU SEE OTHER SCOOTERS – YOU SHOULD AVOID BEING OF OBSTRUCTION – IN NEARLY 8 YEARS WE HAVE NEVER HAD A PARKING FINE FOR A SCOOTER.

ALONG A CONTINUOUS BLUE LINE – THIS IS WHERE CARS PARK TOO, SO YOU DO RISK HAVING THE SCOOTER KNOCKED OVER AND THEN YOU WILL UNFORTUNATELY HAVE TO PAY FOR THE DAMAGES

A – NO, THEY ARE NOT AND THE FINE IS €95.00 PLUS €15.00 WE CHARGE TO MANAGE THE FINE

A – NO, ONLY THOSE OVER 250CC

A – 23 WITH A LICENCE UNLESS TRAVELLING WITH ADULTS (E.G. PARENTS IN WHICH CASE 18 WITH A LICENCE)
