Scooter Rental on Greek Island quesiton

Jump to last reply

WE will be in Santorini one day in late May (cruise stop) with a party of four and am intersted in Scootering around the island with two scooters. I have an international driver's licence, the other driver doesn't but can get one. Neither of us have a motorcycle specific licence. On an old post on this site there is the following quote:

"The regulations are the same all over the EU. 50ccm and 50km/h max are what is o.k. with a standard "car" license."

So to rent a scooter of 50cc the driver does not need a motorcycle license, correct? Is there still a requriement to have the international driver's licence for my friend? - thanks.
(Also, any suggestions on the whole idea or "neat roads to scooter on" ideas would be welcome)
