E-scooter special offer during Euros

A yellow Zipp scooter for hire

Users of Slough’s new e-scooter scheme can benefit from a special offer during the Euros football tournament.

The e-scooters launched in Slough on 28 May and are vibrant yellow. They are located throughout Slough in dedicated zones, which can be found via the Zipp app. 

To use the e-scooters, people must register in advance and submit their driving licence and photo for approval.

Members will be able to enjoy reduced prices through the duration of the Euros. They will receive a push notification on their mobile phones, alerting them to a promo code for a free scooter unlock on all England and Germany (hosts) match days.
For the group stages, this will mean 14, 16, 19, 20, 23 and 25 June.

Savio DeCruz, AD Operations, Regeneration, Housing and Environment, said: “Since the launch, people who live or work in Slough have been trying out the e-scooters and making journeys on them. 

“This is beneficial to the environment as it reduces traffic on the road and therefore emissions produced. It is also an easy, convenient option for people to get from one place to another, with a selection of pick-up and drop-off locations across the town.

“With this special offer, we hope more people will give the e-scooters a try. Remember you must be over 18 and register with your driving licence. You must never drink and ride and you cannot ride on pavements but can use dedicated cycle lanes and bus lanes. Please also be considerate to other road users and pedestrians.”

There will also be additional vouchers codes given out via the Zipp Mobility Instagram page in response to events during the tournament. If you follow the Zipp Instagram page you’ll see them as they appear. 

The scooters are equipped with ‘always on’ lights for enhanced visibility, they are bright yellow, have brake lights and a horn. 

Zipp scooters are covered by third-party motor vehicle insurance to provide peace of mind to riders and pedestrians alike.
