In the whole area of the Coast, but especially in Vietri sul Mare (both next to our garage and even on the main street), you may come across an abusive renter of scooters, motorcycles and cars. We strongly suggest that you avoid these pseudo-professionals unauthorized both from the Municipality or from the Prefect.
The main risk is that you will find yourself completely uncovered by the insurance and any kind of assistance. In case of problems, some of them could even report you for theft, so as not to face the costs of any damage caused to third parties (including your pillion passenger) and certainly not covered by the insurance company.
It is easy to recognize an abusive renter:
1) he will not issue you a copy of the contract and / or will not make any contract;
2) the vehicle registration document of the bike entrusted to you, at point J.1 will contain the words "MOTOCICLO PER TRASPORTO PERSONE - USO PROPRIO" instead of "MOTOCICLO PER TRASPORTO PERSONE - USO DI TERZI DA LOCARE SENZA CONDUCENTE" that means "MOTORCYCLE FOR TRANSPORT PERSONS - OWN USE" instead of the appropriate wording "MOTORCYCLE FOR TRANSPORT PERSONS - USE OF THIRD PARTIES TO BE LOCATED WITHOUT DRIVER" and without the details of the authorization issued by the Municipality (see example of rental booklet).
