Amateur Scooter Drivers in Luberon


Me an my girlfriend are arriving in Avignon end of June.

We were thinking about renting a scooter to move around Luberon. I have few questions though:

- Is scooter driving safe in the area for amateur scooter drivers like us? We both handle a bike just fine but have never been on a scooter before. I know if you can drive a bike, then there shouldn't be a a problem with scooters.

- Is it convenient to drive a scooter with two people from Avignon to small villages like Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux, etc or the distance is too big for a scooter?

We were also considering renting a car, but those are very expensive and we want to save the extra 200 Eur between scooter rent and car rent.

This is a BAD idea.

Busy and narrow roads with French drivers who view speed limits as a "suggestion" only and lots of tourists who are unfamiliar with the area and don't know where they are going.

If you have only ridden a bicycle before....this is not the best area to learn how to ride a scooter.
