Frequently Asked Questions

Vietnam Motorcycle Tours + Rentals

Rentals

We offer 3 different rental packages, designed for riders with different requirements:

  • Tourist Rental is our most popular offering. There is no mileage limit, no minimum rental period, and you’re free to ride wherever you like within Vietnam!
  • One-Way Rental is identical to our Tourist Rental package except, for an additional charge of either $75, $100 or $200 (depending on size of motorcycle) you’re free to begin and end your rental in different cities.
  • Expat Rental is designed for riders who are living and working in Vietnam. It’s a highly cost-effective way of getting around. Expat rentals are subject to a mileage limit of 1,500km, and you’re limited to the city in which you rented your motorcycle rental and its immediate vicinity.

Yes, we require 50% of your rental fee to confirm your booking.

We also require a Security Deposit for all rentals. You don’t need to pay this when you book: we’ll collect it from you when you pick up your motorcycle.

  • For Tourist Rentals, we require a deposit of either $500 or $1,000, depending on the motorcycle, or your passport.
  • For One-Way Rentals, we require a deposit of either $500 or $1,000, depending on the motorcycle. We don’t accept passports as deposits for One-Way Rentals because there’s no easy way to return your passport to you when you drop your motorcycle off in another city.
  • For Expat Rentals, all we require is one month’s rental fee. Bear in mind that if you leave your passport with us as a deposit, it must be valid and contain the visa with which you entered Vietnam. Many of our customers prefer doing things this way and, so long as you keep a photocopy or a photo of it when you’re travelling, you’ll have no problem checking in to hotels.

The Damage Waiver, available for Tourist and One-Way Rentals, absolves you of responsibility should you damage your motorcycle.

It does not cover:

  • 3rd party damages;
  • loss or theft;
  • repair of flat tyres or (additional) oil changes;
  • loss of spare parts, such as inner tubes;
  • damage through flooding, fire damage, vandalism or natural disasters;
  • personal injury or loss of personal belongings;
  • transport of your motorcycle to our office should you crash the bike and it becomes unrideable.

 

Disclaimers:

  • The Damage Waiver is non-refundable.
  • The Damage Waiver is only valid if you inform us first, before having repairs carried out while on the road.
  • If you do not return your motorcycle to us, it will be considered lost or stolen. The Damage Waiver will not be applied you will be liable for the value of the stolen motorcycle.
