About Zesty Rentals
Zesty Rentals was started in Townsville in early 2016 to provide a fun, affordable and unique option to explore our beautiful city. After meeting a lot of tourists coming through on their way to Magnetic Island, we realised there were no easy, affordable options for visitors to see the sights of Townsville, resulting in a lot of people not being able to make the most of their time here on the mainland.
In solution to this problem we have established a fleet of bright, cheerful retro-style 50cc scooters, that are fun and easy to ride. A car licence is all that you need - no requirement for a motorcycle licence or previous bike experience.
The scooters are hired from the Breakwater Marina by appointment, so give us a call to confirm a time to pick up your scooters. We can't wait to meet you and help you to make the most of your time in Townsville! Come see us.... and get your Zesty on!

Do I need a motorcycle license or need to be an experience bike rider?
No, you do not need to have a motorcycle license or have experience riding a motorbike. The scooters are stable and very easy to ride. We will complete an induction with you and show you how to operate the scooter when first hire them.
What license do I need?
An open Australian car license (with at least 12 months continuous driving experience) or an international license are required in order to hire a scooter.
How many people can fit on one scooter?
Each scooter is designed to take one person only. That way, everyone gets to have fun!
Can I take the scooter to Magnetic Island?
Yes, you can take the scooters on Fantasea for only $40 return (scooter and person). This is a great, cost effective way to explore both Townsville and Magnetic Island!
How far can I travel on the scooter?
The scooters can be ridden within a 100km radius of Townsville. There is an allowance of 150km/day of hire. Distances travelled greater than 150km/day will incur additional charges.
How much storage do the scooters have?
There is a helmet locker below the seat of each scooter. These can fit a small bag while you are riding but can only fit a few small items when the helmet is stored in the locker.
How old do I need to be?
If you are 19 years of age or older (up to 75!) and have had a car license for 12 continual months or longer, you can hire a Zesty scooter. L-platers or P-platers are not eligible to hire a scooter.
Is a security deposit required?
Yes, a security deposit of $250 is required prior to hiring. This can be paid with credit card or cash and will be refunded in full when you return the scooter in its initial condition with a full tank of fuel. Refunds will be processed in same manner as provided (i.e. cash will be returned in cash and credit card payments will be returned to the card they were taken from).
Who pays for fuel?
You will be required to pay for all fuel and return the scooter with a full fuel tank. This won’t cost much! A full tank lasts approx. 130-150km and only costs around $4 to refill!
What happens if the scooter is stolen?
If we determine that you are not at fault and the other party agrees to pay the ‘Loss and Damage Excess’ (LDE) then you will not be required to pay anything. Otherwise you will be required to pay the LDE – see Terms and Conditions.
What happens if I have an accident?
If we are able to determine that it is not your fault and the other party agrees to pay the ‘Loss and Damage Excess’ (LDE) then you will not be required to pay anything. Otherwise you will be required to pay the LDE – see Terms and Conditions.
