Rent a Scooter in Thailand

Renting a Scooter in Thailand can be a great experience and a way to be more indipendent during your travel avoiding being ripped off everytime by greedy taxi / tuk tuk drivers.

In every town you will easily find more than one scooter rental.

Usually rental fare are cheap and scooter are reasonably reliable but some precautions need to be taken:

I. Always check if breaks are working and possibly if the scooter is insured.

II. Check and signal damages already present on the scooter when the vehicle is given to you.

III. Agree the price before signing anything.

IV. Ask for an helmet and make sure it is included in the price of your rental.

V. Traffic in Thailand is caotic and unruled and accidents frequent. If you are not confident in driving a scooter look for bus or taxi / tuk tuk instead.
