Offroad Vietnam Motorbike Adventures – Notes About Motorbike Rentals In Hanoi

NOTES ABOUT MOTORBIKE RENTALS IN HANOI

First notes about motorbike rentals in Hanoi: We provide more guided tours than rentals (unguided trips). Therefore, our rental bikes are likely booked out quite early before.

Please also note that we are not offering 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”. In fact, all rentals start and end in Hanoi.

One-way Motorbike Rentals

Rental bikes are not available for 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 history or ride/own one like this. In addition, mechanic basics are necessary. Full rental payment is needed before collecting the motorcycle(s)/motorbike(s)/scooter(s). No deposit refund if you cancel the booking or after you pick up the rented vehicle(s).

Renting Hours

We don’t offer 24 hours rental service. If you pick up the bike any time before 5pm you pay for the full day. For example, 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. In addition, the minimum duration of a rental is at least 4 (four) days.

What Bike?

Last yet importantly, don’t start off on an automatic, step-over scooter. These things have hair trigger acceleration, usually no foot break, and the front wheel turns too easily. Ideally, start on a 100cc bike with semi-automatic (clutch-less) gears like a Honda Wave. 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.

Go Guided?

      Hello Viktor Valenta. We are based in Hanoi, not Nha Trang and unfortunately we couldn’t offer anything down there. Good luck with your research.
