FAQ – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We hope we have tempted you with these proposals for an illuminating experience in total freedom… with wings on your feet! Here we provide you with a bit of information that you may find helpful in planning your visit to Pavia.

RESERVATIONS

The Vespa will be yours for an entire day (or longer if you like). You can pick it up at Il Girasole di Travacò Siccomario starting at 7:30 in the morning and you can keep it until 19:30 in the evening.

You can reserve your Vespa experience by going to the Reserve me page and choosing the package that most attracts you.

You also have the option of reserving the Vespa for more than one day!

The first step is to choose your package. Remember to write in the notes field what kind of picnic basket you want (traditional, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free) and which itinerary inspires you the most. Of course you are free to deviate from the itinerary to your heart’s content, you can take our tips or follow whatever messages and signals you receive along the way.

Once you have completed the reservation process you will receive two emails. One will summarize your order and include your reservation number; the other will contain links to the suggested itineraries and the forms to be signed when you pick up the Vespa.

The payment is non-refundable. However, if the weather is bad you can shift the dates of your reservation.

Il Girasole, Via Charles Darwin 5, Travacò Siccomario (PV), open weekdays 7:30am-2:30pm and 4:00pm-7:30pm; open all day on weekends from 7:30am to 7:30pm

INFORMATION ABOUT THE VESPA:

The Vacanze Pavesi Vespas are classic Piaggio 125cc Primaveras designed for two people. Included with them are two helmets, a top box and a hook to carry a picnic basket and ground cloth. Kilometres are unlimited.

The driver must have a category A or B licence valid in EU, which must be displayed when picking up the Vespa. 

You will receive the Vespa with a full tank of petrol (unleaded or “green”) and must leave a 10-euro petrol deposit with Il Girasole. You must return the Vespa with a full tank, otherwise you will forfeit your petrol deposit.

In addition to the petrol deposit, a security deposit of 200 euros, payable by credit card, is required when picking up the Vespa. An additional €100 (one hundred euros) security deposit is required if you opt for a picnic basket. The deposit will be refunded to your account within 24 hours of returning the Vespa.

The driver is fully responsible for any traffic violations, which will be charged to the person signing the liability form. If points need to be removed from the licence for any traffic violations, Vacanze Pavesi shall provide the authorities with the necessary driver information within 30 days of receiving notice of the violation.

 

IMPORTANT:

You may not enter the restricted traffic areas (zone a traffico limitato – ZTL) in Pavia or in other cities.

VESPA RETURN:

You must return the Vespa to Il Girasole by 19:30 (7:30 pm). If it is not returned by that time, you will be responsible for the Vespa until it is returned the following day, at which time you will be charged for an additional day.
