You don't have to own a Vespa to drive through Hamburg's streets on two wheels. Whether a scooter sharing app or classic rental is more your style, Hamburg has options for renting motor scooters at low costs. Emission-free electric scooters are particularly popular.
Emmy: e-scooter sharing
These black and red electric scooters from the Berlin company Emmy are quiet, emission-free and run on Hamburg's streets with green electricity. If you’re wondering how Emmy works, just think of well-known car sharing programmes like Car2Go or DriveNow: users can rent a scooter using a smartphone app and park it again throughout the city for the next rider.
To become an Emmy user, you must register for the app with your driver's license. Scooters cost €0.23 per minute or €29 per day. Both a driver and passenger can use the scooter at once, and so two helmets are provided in the box on the back of each bike.

Evectro: electric rentals
Everything’s electric at Evectro! The company rents e-scooters and e-bikes to Hamburgers in need of a ride. At €25, the hourly rate for a scooter rental is more expensive than Emmy, but there is also a wider variety of choices. Or try out Evectro’s e-bikes, an agile and quick way to jet around the city. Evectro also offers e-scooter tours and long term rentals, starting at 3 months.
