Mobility Scooter Hire
Visitors to Alicante City looking for mobility scooter hire will find several options to choose from, although not nearly as many as there are in nearby Benidorm where it seems every man and his dog requires a mobility scooter to get around, regardless whether they have a disability or not! Fortunately this annoying trend of hiring a mobility scooter to get around just because you're lazy is not nearly as bad in Alicante although you will always find one or two exceptions to the rule.
Mobility Scooter Access
With its beautiful palm lined promenade and lovely parks with well laid pathways, much of Alicante is a pleasure to get around for those with limited mobility and the majority of the beaches have wheelchair and scooter access. Getting to the top of the city's famous Santa Barbara Castle is also easily reachable with access via road and a handy lift which is located on the rocky outcrop side of the dual carriageway that runs parallel to the beach promenade. The entrance for the lift is via a stainless steel tunnel and is signposted ‘Ascensor al Castillo de Santa Barbara'. There is a charge of 2.70€ to use the life and entrance to the castle is free.
Mobility Scooter Hire
Mobility scooter hire is available from several outlets in the city, some also offering scooter, motorcycle and bicycle hire, but for the widest choice of mobility scooters and other aids such as wheelchairs, walkers and crutches, Amigo 24 are the largest mobility store in Spain with 29 outlets throughout the country. Located on Carrer Pintor Aparicio 9, a block up from the harbour near the main bus terminus, Amigo 24 offer a good choice of mobility scooters for daily, weekly and monthly hire including twin seat scooters.
