  • All driving offences must be declared prior to rental. Some offences may be unacceptable with our insurers, if in doubt please check at time of booking and if added between booking and time of hire double check. Failure to advise us in advance may result in the refusal to hire.
  • Most hirers aged over 24 and under 66 years of age will be accepted (not all motorcycles will be available to younger riders). Restrictions may be imposed by insurers that can differ with location and machine. Riders older than 66 will be considered but may require a medical certificate confirming their fitness to ride.
  • Hirers must ensure they have requested the correct dates, pick up and drop off times at the time of reservation because although we will do our best to help if you have made an error we cannot accept responsibility if your preferred bike is not available at the amended date or time.
  • A reservation fee of at least the first days hire charge per motorbike will be taken at time of booking. The fee is deducted from the total hire cost but in the event of cancellation may be forfeit.

These funds are reserved by your bank in case of any damage, theft or charges incurred whilst the bike is in your possession including extended rental periods, damage, late charges, fuel refills, mileage fees, punctures or unpaid penalty charges.
  • In the event of an accident during your hire, should the motorbike become unusable, we cannot guarantee to offer replacement bike and no refund will be granted on the remaining period of rent.
