About
Vespa rentals in Banff! Our scooters are the perfect way to explore Banff and the surrounding lakes. Take a one-hour drive around town and to the immediate sights, a two-hour ride out to Banff's famous lakes, or a more leisurely three-hour adventure! Photo ops are unlimited! Our Vespas are easy to drive, fully automatic, can accommodate a driver plus passenger, and at 49cc a motorcycle license is not required! Riding a scooter is the most fun you can have on two wheels, so take in the sights up close and have a great time doing it! Operating May thru September.

TERRIBLE
Jul. 2021
Absolutely horrible business and people. They will scam you out of your money. This "family run" business is nothing less than a money snatching scheme. Had the worst experience here. What a terrible place of business. Don't waste your time, choose another place to rent from.

A perfect way to see Banff!
Aug. 2019 • Couples
We had such a wonderful time cruising around in these brand new 2020 model Vespas. Riding through the mountain roads, taking in the fresh air, lakes, rivers, and incredible scenery. Really appreciate the attention to safety they provided and the local roads and drivers were very courteous to us!

Enjoyed so much!
Jul. 2019 • Couples
What a great way to see the local sights. We were able to see places we didn't get time to see while walking. This was so much fun. Staff super friendly. They even called the morning of our rental time to make sure we still wanted to go because there was a small chance of rain. Super thoughtful. Would do this again but for a longer time!

The Best Way to See Banff!
Jul. 2019 • Business
I had such a great time exploring the scenic drives around Banff with a Vespa from Banff By Scooter! I had no previous scooter experience, but the trip came complete with a lesson and safety instruction. It was very safe and David and all of his staff were very friendly and helpful!

Definitely recommend. I can't wait to go back!

This is simply a Must-Do in Banff!
Jul. 2019 • Family
Our family of four had a great time on these scooters, so much so that we called David and kept them for an extra hour! My 18 year old son (that's the minimum age to drive) thought this was the best part of our trip. My daughter was a bit timid at first but once we got going she didn't want to stop - Ciao Bella! David and crew gave us lessons, made sure we were comfortable, gave us good riding tips and pointed us in the right direction. I'd recommend wearing good walking shoes (flip flops are not allowed) and sun glasses. Helmets are provided and there's storage on each bike - we brought lunch and had an impromptu picnic with a glorious view. The roads were mellow and even when we were in a little traffic, no problem. Speed limits are in line with what the scooters do and they're easy to slow, stop and get going again. We passed many envious people along our route - this is the way to go! Highly recommended.

Such a Fun Way to Explore Banff!
May 2019 • Solo
If you were looking to see Banff's beautiful sights, be sure to consider seeing it by scooter. Their scooters was the first thing we saw when entering Banff and it was an easy sell once we saw a few more cruising down Banff Ave. The entire experience was more than I can ask for! Brendan was so helpful setting me up on one of their Vespa's making sure I was comfortable for the road and giving me a local's guide of where to go!!! All their scooters have such a timeless look and easy to ride.

I would definitely recommend Banff By Scooter to all visitors especially if they don't have a vehicle to explore. There are so many viewpoints that are accessible, why not do it in style?! I can't recommend it enough!

Great outfit!
Jun. 2019 • Couples
David and his crew were excellent and very accommodating. This was one of the most memorable things we did in Banff. My partner was not tall enough to ride her own scooter but we did well on one Vespa.

Brandon at the counter was great to deal with.

This is a unique experience because you do not need a motorcycle license to rent these scooters in Alberta.

I have been to Banff many times but this was a new experience. The scooters were easy to ride and our great day in Banff turned into an unbelievably fun day. Everybody should try this, you’ll be talking about it for months. Worth every penny
