Our friends from 21 to 24 years old who are preparing for their next trip should be aware of some useful information about renting a motorbike.

Motorbike rental is open to all adults who have reached the age of 21. This restriction is due to a law enacted for the safety of young drivers. Although you may have a driving licence from the age of 18, motorbike rental is not allowed in Greece if you are under the age of 21.
