cheapest mode of rental. Renting a motorbike can be great fun. You will
be able to see more and go further with less money.
In most of the larger tourist areas you
will companies that will rent you a small motorbike (100cc to 125cc) for
about THB 160.00 to 200.00 per day. There are also companies that offer
bigger bikes ranging from 400cc to 1300cc. Prices for these will usually
range from THB 700.00 to 1800.00 per day.
You should be aware that insurance for
motorbikes is at best, basic cover. You should get theft and third party
motorbike insurance when you hire a motorbike.
It is also advisable to take some lessons
in your own country before your trip to Thailand if you have not ridden
a motorbike or haven't ridden a motorbike in a long time. If you are not
a confident rider, you should consider
or a motorbike taxi as the traffic in Thailand
can be quite a challenge.
