It is our philosophy to give you the motorcycle that you want. Unlike some other motorcycle rental agencies we do not double book or overbook our motorcycle rentals and we don’t bump anybody.
However, because of this philosophy, we have a strictly enforced cancellation policy. If you cancel your reservation at the last minute, it is very likely that we will not be able to rent your motorcycle. In fact, we have probably turned people away to hold this motorcycle for you. Because we take such great precautions to make sure that none of our renters are disappointed (and our track record in this regard is extremely good), we also expect you not to disappoint us and violate our cancellation policy. We will apply cancellation fees if you do.
We will never send out a motorcycle that is mechanically unsafe – SAFETY IS OUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY! If for some reason, the motorcycle model you have requested suddenly becomes unavailable for safety reasons, we will notify you immediately and give you the option of switching to another motorcycle (this may require us giving you an upgrade at no additional cost, but we will never downgrade you) or canceling with no charge, and we will even assist you in finding another rental agency that does have the bike you wanted.
Renting a motorcycle is not to different from renting a car. However, since riding a motorcycle is a more specialized skill than driving, there are some extra considerations:
Terms of rentals:
We take pride on having a straightforward rental process, but as with any business transaction, there is paperwork. Our motorcycle rental agreement is just one page and written in plain English, German, Italian, French or Russian and at the time you arrive to pick up your rental motorcycle, one of our staff will go over the contract with you carefully and thoroughly. There is no fine print to mislead you.
We assure that there are no hidden fees, or extra insurance costs.
The minimum period of renting a vehicle is one day. The vehicle should be returned at the exact date and time as mentioned in the contract and in the exact condition as it was when rented. Gasoline consumption is the renters responsibility. All taxes are included in the price agreed. After the contract is signed, helmets will be provided and must be worn by law. All fines and penalties as mentioned in the Greek traffic law & regulations will be paid by the renter. If these fines are ignored they will be submitted to the European Union Court of Law. In order to visit one or more of the surrounding islands a written authorization of Motorplan must be accompanied by the rental contract.
The vehicle can only be used on asphalt. Going onto the beach, off road riding, or on rocky areas with our vehicle is forbidden. In such cases all damages will be paid by the renter. In addition, our company reserves the right to not refund you your security deposit. Only the experienced driver who has signed the contract is allowed to drive our vehicle. The second passenger is not allowed to operate the vehicle by law, by our insurance company, and by our company’s policy. Any damages caused by the second passenger or by any other non-authorized person, will be paid by the renter. We are a rental company and not a driving school. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is against the law. It is forbidden to have a third passenger on any of our vehicles.
In motorcycle rentals, there are only two insurance packages:
We rented two mountain bikes for 2 days to cycle to Kos town centre and up to Zia. Manos dropped off the bikes and picked them up without any issues. The bikes were great but for us casual riders the seats were way too hard!! Nevertheless we had a great time with them. Thank you Manos
We went with Motorplan to hire some mountain bikes as they seemed to have a bit better selection/quality of bikes compared to other rental services on the island. They were pretty decent value for money and Manos provided excellent customer service - dropping the bikes off to where we were staying and being generously flexible about picking them up again. We had a great time exploring the island!
Great service. Received the scooter at the airport and it was picked up at my hotel. Everything went great and it was a lot of fun to discover the island by scooter. Would do it again.
