Motorbike Rental Do's and Don't's

  • If you have never driven before, VIETNAM IS NOT THE PLACE TO LEARN.
  • Check the bike before rental – take video of any damage.
  • Try to get a written agreement (T&C) from the owner
  • You will probably have to leave a passport as deposit.
  • Check how much fuel is in the bike and return it with about that much.
  • Take it for a quick test drive (2 mins) before renting to test the gears, lights, brakes etc… Yes, leave your passport at that point.
  • Take down the details of the rental shop / hotel / owner. This could save a lot of hassle.
  • Request a helmet. Check it is in good shape. Use it !!
  • Expect the unexpected. It will often be the case that the unexpected will take place. Drive defensively (slowly and not aggressively) and you will minimize risk.
