Older riders may use mopeds as city run-arounds or for commuting, or they may enjoy the classic scooter social scene.

How can we help you with scooter and moped insurance today?
Our service makes it easy for you to find the right insurance for any type of moped or scooter, from 49cc to 125cc engine sizes.
We compare over 30 insurance brands and clearly present the policy options, prices and levels of cover.
A moped is classed as anything under 50cc, while a scooter is a specific style of motorbike, usually with a step-through frame and small wheels.
Such bikes can be a great option for young riders and many other people, and we can quote for riders aged 16 and over.
Mopeds and scooters can be stylish, economical, speedy for commuting and urban travel, and more environmentally friendly than a lot of other vehicles, some capable of achieving fuel efficiency figures of much more than 100mpg.
