Questions to Ask
Always make sure to compare like for like, i.e. motorcycle model, equipment, mileage allowance, insurance, breakdown cover and additional services such as delivery and opening hours for pick-up and return. Generally, the motorcycle rental depends on the bike’s running costs, i.e. the depreciation, insurance, servicing intervals, tire consumption and price of spare parts of the individual rental motorcycle.
Who services the rental motorcycles? Safety is paramount in motorcycling. For that reason our motorcycles are maintained at an authorized dealer. We adhere to the highest maintenance standards set by the manufacturer and don't shy away from the costs to keep our rental motorcycles permanently in tiptop condition.
How old are the bikes? To ensure first-class service, Motorbike Trip only offers the latest models. Rental motorcycles cover high mileage in short periods of time. A rental motorcycle with high mileage is not necessarily a bad thing as long as it’s been carefully maintained.
What does the insurance cover? Third party insurance is mandatory in Costa Rica and covers damage to others. We do not offer Theft Insurance if the motorcycle is stolen. We strongly recommend you take out the maximum insurance coverage to avoid a mishap turning into a major expense.
How much will an accident cost? The insurance excess, also known as insurance deductible is the amount of the claim the rider has to bear. As a rule of thumb, the higher the value of the motorcycle the higher the excess.
What happens in case of a breakdown? Make sure to find out what countries are covered. Our rental motorcycles are covered within a 25 kilometer area. In the unlikely event of a breakdown, our breakdown service will take you and the bike to the next garage. If the bike cannot be repaired locally, we take you back to Tamarindo at no cost and provide a replacement vehicle.
What time for bike pick-up and return? Depending on your travel schedule, you might be arriving very early or late. At Paradise Moto Rental, you can pick up and return your motorcycle outside of office hours. We guarantee to be on time.
