To hire an E-Scooter (electric scooter) in Poland you have several competitive and cheap options available to you.
Before we get started, we highly recommend you familiarize yourself with these electric scooter safety tips and also make sure you’re aware of any local laws in Poland, related to riding on the pavement or road.
The most popular choices when it comes to hiring an E-scooter in Poland are Lime and Blinkee.
They both have downloadable apps and both of them have a lot of e-scooters parked around most major cities in Poland.
Lime is our favourite choice, based on experiences using Lime to hire e-scooters we have had nothing but good experiences with them.
To get started, you’ll just need to download the app using the link above, once downloaded you’ll just need to spend a few minutes setting up your account.
To setup your account you’ll need to have your phone number, email and also your name.
Setting up the account is very straightforward and once finished you’ll see a map with the locations of every Lime scooter available within your area.
It’s important to be aware of the areas on the map in which Lime allow you to ride your scooter, which can be easily distinguished by the outer red zone, these areas should be avoided and you should try not to stray too far outside of the operating area.
On the map screen, you can click on individual e-scooters to see more information like price, battery life, the maximum distance the scooter will be able to travel etc
You can also ring the scooter, which will help you to find it, if you’re having trouble seeing it.
If you’re ready to reserve the scooter you can click the green button labelled ‘reserve’ and from there you can start the booking process to unlock the scooter, starting at 30 minutes.
Once you’ve unlocked your e-scooter, you’re good to go, just take it easy.
Price: 3zl unlock + 0.50zl per minute.
Blinkee is similar to Lime, except they also offer electric mopeds, as well as scooters and bicycles.
The process to use Blinkee is pretty much the same as Lime.
Download: You can download the Blinkee app here
To get started, download the app, create an account and use the map to find an available e-scooter for you to hire.
Once you’ve unlocked your scooter you’re good to go.
The difference is with the electric moped you’ll need to wear a helmet but don’t worry that’s included in the rental of your booking.
There will be a button on the steering wheel that will open the trunk, you’ll then find a helmet and a hygiene cover.
You must ride your e-moped on the road, treat it as if you’re riding a scooter in your own country and always observe local laws and stay safe.
