While a tour guide is a great idea, self-guided tours are one of the best ways to see the island. We included a waterproof tour map for easy navigating.

Rain Gear

It’s a tropical island and quick storms happen. We include some emergency rain gear to keep you dry.

LED Flashlight

Keeping with the idea of safety, we include a flashlight under the seat in-case you get caught our in the dark. We really think of everything!

First Aid Kit

We hope you never need it, but there’s a emergency first aid kit under the seat for any scratches or boo boos.

In order to drive a motorbike (scooter) in the Philippines, you must have a valid driving license. You can drive for 3 months if you have a foreign driving license, after 3 months you have to convert your driving license to a Philippine license. An international driving license is also helpful.

At Batanes Scooters, we also require the renter/driver to be 18 years of age and have a valid license and form of ID. We require renters to be physically qualified to operate a scooter and prohibit the use of alcohol while operating the scooter.

In Batanes helmets are required and we encourage the use of helmets all the time.

Why is your price higher than some other places in Philippines?

In Batanes, everything is imported via ship or passenger plane and significantly more expensive than anywhere in the country. This includes the scooters, fuel, parts, and other items. Batanes Scooters also provides the top quality, brand-name, new scooters to our customers. Unlike some rentals in Philippines, we don’t rent personal bikes, we carry all licenses and insurance and follow all Philippine and local regulations. We provide safety gear as well as some other helpful amenities not found at other rentals. Our goal is premium quality and service.

Can you self-tour or do you need a guide in Batanes?

Batanes is very suited to a self-tour due to the simplicity of the roads as well as the clearly marked points of interest. We provide a self-guided travel map with each scooter that will navigate you to all the wonderful sights on Batan Island.

There are some fantastic tour guides if you require more information or would like a local’s knowledge. We are happy to provide a guided scooter tour, which is quite simply the best way to tour. More comfortable than a trike and a bit more independent as you can stop where you please. We recommend a 1/2-day guided scooter tour, and then you can explore on your own.

Is a deposit required?

Due to the limited availability of bookings (as well as scooters), we do require a 50% deposit on booking.

We offer same day and walk-in bookings, but during most seasons, scooters will not be available on a daily basis.
