Terms & Conditions

OVERVIEW

It is our philosophy to give you the motorcycle that you want. Unlike some other motorcycle rental agencies we do not double book or overbook our motorcycle rentals and we don’t bump anybody. However, because of this philosophy, we have a strictly enforced cancellation policy. If you cancel your reservation at the last minute, it is very likely that we will not be able to rent your motorcycle. In fact, we have probably turned people away to hold this motorcycle for you. Because we take such great precautions to make sure that none of our renters are disappointed (and our track record in this regard is extremely good), we also expect you not to disappoint us and violate our cancellation policy. We will apply cancellation fees if you do.

We will never send out a motorcycle that is mechanically unsafe – SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER 1 PRIORITY! If for some reason, the motorcycle type you requested suddenly becomes unavailable for safety reasons, we will notify you immediately and give you the option of switching to another motorcycle (this may require us giving you an upgrade at no additional cost, but we will never downgrade you) or canceling with no charge, and we will even assist you in finding another rental agency that does have the bike you have requested.

Requirements:

Renting a motorcycle is not too different from renting a car. However since riding a motorcycle is a more specialized skill than driving a car, there are some extra considerations:

Only experienced drivers 23 years of age or older with a valid driver’s license reflecting a certain maturity that goes with the responsibility of renting a motorcycle are allowed to rent a vehicle. In fact, our service staff will observe to make sure that a renter can comfortably handle his or her rental motorcycle around our parking area before giving the final OK to ride the bike away. Motorbikes or quads driven by inexperienced people can cause a heavy injury or even death.

Non european citizens are obliged to carry an international driving license in order to proceed to a rental.

Class B1 driving license is required in order to proceed to a 50cc scooter rental (depending on the internal traffic regulations of the european country where the driver’s license was issued)

Class A1 driving license is required in order to proceed to an over 100cc motorbike rental.

Quads can be driven with a Class A1 or B1 driving license.

Absence of the authentic driver’s license card does not lead to a rental at all.
