But how much does it cost to rent an electric scooter? This article will help answer that question and provide some additional information on factors that can impact the cost.


Typically, electric scooter rental services operate on a pay-per-use basis. Most companies have an app that customers use to find and unlock a scooter, then pay according to the length of usage, usually by the minute. Here's a breakdown of what you can expect:



  1. Unlocking fee: Most services charge a one-time unlocking fee, which usually ranges from $1 to $2.



  2. Per-minute rate: After unlocking, rental services charge a per-minute rate, typically between $0.15 and $0.30. This means that a 20-minute ride could cost anywhere from $3 to $6.



  3. Promotions and discounts: Keep an eye out for special promotions or discounts offered by rental companies, which could reduce overall costs.




Additional factors that can impact rental costs include:



  1. Location: Depending on the city or region, both the availability of scooters and the pricing structure may vary.



  2. Time of day: Some rental services may adjust their per-minute rates depending on the time of day to account for increased demand during peak hours.



  3. Scooter type: Electric scooters come in a variety of designs and capabilities. Higher-end scooters with more features may come with a higher rental cost.




In summary, the cost of renting an electric scooter can range from just a few dollars to over $10 depending on the duration of usage and other factors. While renting an electric scooter may provide the flexibility and convenience needed for short commutes or exploring a new city, it is essential to consider the costs before committing to frequent use.
