If you are like me, you have spent the quarantine and time during the pandemic thinking about getting back to travel. From dreaming of destinations to planning out flights and hotels, the ultimate travel experience can be easily planned from the comfort of your home with the help of your computer.
Something to consider when traveling or engaging with tourism as it resumes is how you will move around the city. Urban mobility is changing and innovating.
Barcelona: The Better Way to Travel
With the announcement of the EU lifting travel restrictions for the U.S. to travel this summer with qualifying vaccines, there has never been a better time to plan a trip to Spain.
You should definitely rent an electric scooter during your travel. They are a fun, easy, and inexpensive way to travel around the city. Companies like LYNX offer convenient travel options with electric scooters.
How does it work?
Imagine you have just arrived in Barcelona and arrived at your accommodations. If you want to explore the city there is no better option than travel by electric scooter, especially in the summer. You can order a scooter online and have express delivery in under 2 hours to your selected location. It is only 15 euros! Scooters move up to 15 MPH. The company will pick up the scooter when you are done using it or you can visit their locations in the city instead of getting the scooters delivered. Rentals come with a helmet included. What could be more convenient than that? There are also personal guided tours around the city. They are 2 hours and can be in English or Spanish. If you prefer to explore without a guide in person- GPS self guided tours are also available.
Navigating the narrow streets of Barcelona is more enjoyable and more accessible on a scooter. You can explore famous sites such as the Plaça de Catalunya.
Reasons to Use Electric Scooter
Electric scooters are environmentally friendly. Many Americans are concerned about the environment and about the impact of their travel. E-scooters offer an option with minimal carbon footprint. It also allows you the mobility of moving through the streets with ease and avoiding traffic.
Expensive rental cars, ubers, or taxis? These costs can add up quickly and also require you to be in the confines of a vehicle. During the warm summer months, e-scooters offer a means of transport that is in the fresh air and without the trouble of dealing with car troubles. There are also repair shops around the city if anything should happen to the scooter.
Finally a major consideration for choosing an electric scooter on your vacation is that it is fun. If you are traveling alone or with your family or friends it is not only a means of transportation but also a form of entertainment. You can drive down the streets in style. They are safe too!
