We provide more fully guided tours than motorbike hire or rentals (unguided trips) so we are likely booked out quite early before. Please make the booking in advance as soon as you lock in your dates.
One Way Motorbike Rental
Please note that we haven’t offered one-way rentals yet as 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”. At the moment all rentals start and end in Hanoi.
Rider Skills Requirement
For customers’ safety, we don’t rent bike(s) to inexperienced/novice rider(s) because 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 skills or ride/own one like this.
Honda 125cc motorbikes are for bikers with less experience, shorter than 1.75m, or on a budget. Though they are not really strong or have a great suspension you still enjoy your ride. In fact, they are newer models, very reliable, and easy to ride.
Even if you send a deposit to book our bike(s), we won’t refund if you can’t ride the bike(s) reserved.
We don’t offer 24 hours rental service. If you pick up the bike anytime before noon you pay for the full day. If you pick up at midday on the first day and return midday on the next day we charge two days, not one day. The minimum of a rental is at least 2 (two) days. Our office is open from Monday to Saturday from 9am to 12.30pm and then 2 to 5pm. Sunday is closed.
You need to send a 50% rental fee deposit before collecting the motorcycle(s), motorbike(s), or scooter(s). No deposit refund if you cancel the booking or after you pick up the rented vehicle(s). The balance will be paid when you collect the rental bike(s).
Choose The Right Bike
Last yet importantly, don’t start off on an automatic, step-over scooter. These things have hair-trigger acceleration, usually, no foot brake, and the front wheel turns too easily. It’s better to start on a 100 cc bike with semi-automatic (clutchless) gears. 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. Moreover, don’t fear the models with a clutch. In fact, it doesn’t take that long to get used to it, and it gives you more control and smoother shifting.

This is our smallest scooters for customers who have no licence or their licence(s) is not accepted in Vietnam. Honestly, these scooters are underpowered, small and quite slow but there is, unfortunately, no other choice if you want to be on the safe side for the licence.
Due to the very high price of Japanese Honda scooters, we are not able to provide this brand. Instead, we use the Taiwanese products form the long-established SYM. They made good quality products, we think somewhere 80% comparing to Honda. In reality, the small scooter hire is a tiny part of any motorbike rental business in Hanoi.
