Notes About Our Motorbike Rentals Business
We provide more fully guided tours than rentals (unguided trips) so we are likely booked up quite early before. Therefore, please reserve your motorbike rentals with us as early as possible.
Also, note that we don’t offer one-way rentals because we have only one office in Hanoi. Many clients asked if we could deliver or collect bike(s) in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City – HCMC) or anywhere other than Hanoi and we are sorry to say “NO”. All rentals start and end in Hanoi.
We don’t rent bike(s) to inexperienced/novice rider(s) as Vietnam is not a place to learn or test your riding skills. If you want to hire a 250cc trail bike, make sure you are over 1.75m or have had good riding skill or ride/own one like this. Even if you send a deposit to book our bike(s), we won’t refund if you can’t ride the bike(s) reserved.
We don’t offer 24 hours rental service. If you pick up the bike anytime before 5pm you pay for the full day. If you pick up at mid day on the first day and return mid day on the next day we charge two days, not one day. The minimum of a rental is at least 4 (four) days.
You need to send 50% rental fee deposit before collecting the motorcycle(s), motorbike(s) or scooter(s). No deposit refund if you cancel the booking or after you pick up the rented vehicle(s). The balance will be paid when you collect the bike(s)
Last yet importantly, don’t start off on an automatic, step-over scooter. These things have hair trigger acceleration, usually no foot brake, and the front wheel turns too easily. Start on a 100 cc bike with semi-automatic (clutchless) gears. The discipline of changing gears means you will build up to speed more slowly, and therefore, more safely. The front wheel is easier to control smoothly, and you all have that foot-break instinct from your first push bike when you were kids. And don’t fear the models with a clutch. It doesn’t take that long to get used to it, and it gives you more control and smoother shifting.
