MOTORCYCLE RENTAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS
BEFORE YOUR TOUR
You are responsible for complying with traffic and driving regulations. Please ensure that you are familiar with the requirements before you travel. You are also responsible for any consequences resulting from non-compliance. You and your passenger(s) need a passport that covers you in the countries through which you will travel. Please check with the relevant embassy. To the best of our knowledge a standard UK, EC, US, Australian passport is fine for all the countries you are likely to visit. Please ask if you are concerned. Your passport should expire at least 6 months after your trip finishes. Please also bring your travel insurance documents. For riders please also bring your full motorbike license. An International Drivers Permit is also recommended. We recommend that you take out adequate travel insurance, including cover for medical treatment, accidents and repatriation, and holiday cancellation and curtailment. Please consult your doctor for up to the minute advice on any health precautions, jabs and boosters you may require.
