Motorcycles

All our motorcycles are insured with Third party liability insurance and Comprehensive vehicle insurance. The rental period is not interrupted due to damage to the motorcycle or the inability of the participant to ride the motorcycle. During the rental period, MotoTrip is not obligated to replace a damaged motorcycle. If a participant provides his own motorcycle, no tour insurance will be provided by MotoTrip.

Mototrip offers two insurance options, 'Basic insurance' and 'VIP Insurance'
In case of ‘Basic insurance’ (included in the price) a security deposit (deductible) of 2000 Euro must be paid to MotoTrip at the beginning of the motorcycle rental period. The deposit will be held until the undamaged motorcycle is returned in acceptable condition and will be refunded at that time.
Optionally, in case of ‘VIP Insurance’ (for a fixed fee of 20 EUR per day), security deposit (deductible) is lowered to 500 Euro and it must be paid to MotoTrip at the beginning of the motorcycle rental period. The deposit will be held until the undamaged motorcycle is returned in acceptable condition and will be refunded at that time.

MotoTrip reserves the right to substitute a motorcycle confirmed to a participant (due to uncontrollable situations like mecanical problems, theft etc.), but will make every effort to ensure the booked model. If not possible, MotoTrip will certainly try to contact the participant prior to any substitution.

Rental conditions are a constituent part of the contractual agreement between Mototrip d.o.o. (Renter) hereby known as MotoTrip and the customer (hirer), governing the use of motorcycles. Rights to deviations, variations or supplemental provisions, which shall be valid only in writing, reserved.

In case of renting a motorcycle from MotoTrip (without applying for a guided tour), a booking deposit for the rental is required at the time of booking. The deposit secures your rental bike. It equals 20% of the expected rental cost or a minimum of 150 Euro. After the deposit is received, your reservation becomes final. If a participant fails to send a reservation deposit, MotoTrip may cancel the reservation at any time. The balance for rentals must be paid at least 30 days prior to the start of the rental period. If the cancellation for the renting (total or partial) is received more than 30 days prior to the start of the rental period 50% of the deposit will be returned; from 30-15 days prior to the start of the rental period 50% of the full rental amount will be returned, 15 days or less prior to the start of the rental period 0% will be returned. Modification of an existing rental reservation can be made free of charge if claimed at least 21 days before the commencement of the rental, otherwise a surcharge may apply.

Hirer will receive motorcycle with a full tank of fuel and is responsible to return the motorcycle with a full tank of fuel. If hirer doesn’t return the motorcycle with a full tank, he will be subject to a refueling charge.

The Hirer shall use the motorcycle with due care and attention, observe the appropriate technical codes of practice and operating instructions as well as ensure road safety. The Hirer shall comply with legal requirements especially the provisions of road traffic regulations. The Hirer shall be liable to the payment of all administrative fees, fines and penalties that are attributed to his/her use of the motorcycle. The renter shall hand over the motorcycle in a technically correct and road-safe condition. The Hirer shall additionally receive the vehicle documents and tools. The Renter shall recognize and accept existing damage only if it is defined in writing in the damage form as part of the handover procedure. If, through no fault of the Hirer, a repair is necessary during the rental period in order to ensure operation or maintain roadworthiness of the motorcycle, the Hirer must receive the Renter's consent before proceeding with the repair. Further claims, irrespective of whatever legal reason, are excluded unless the damage or loss to the Hirer is attributed to intent or gross negligence on the part of the Renter.

It shall be prohibited for the Hirer to:

  • Allow any other person than the authorized persons named in the rental agreement to use the motorcycle.
  • Allow such authorized persons to drive the motorcycle if they are banned from driving or if they do not possess a valid driver's license or are incapable of driving.
  • Drive the motorcycle if he/she himself/herself is banned from driving or if he/she does not possess a valid driver's license.
  • Use the motorcycle in a condition unsuitable for driving.
  • Use the motorcycle for commercial purposes.
  • Participate in motorcycle racing events of any kind, including the practice runs pertaining to such events or track days.
  • Use the motorcycle off-road.
  • Pawn or sell the motorcycle or dispose of the motorcycle or its parts, equipment, accessories and documents in any way that could infringe the rights of ownership of the Renter or infringe any other rights the Renter has on the motorcycle.

If damage or loss occurs, as well as in the event of damage or accident, the Hirer shall be obliged to notify the Renter immediately by telephone. Towing and/or repair services are to be called in only after obtaining the consent of MotoTrip. The police must be notified immediately in the event of an accident. Evidence (witnesses, track marks, etc.) is to be secured, the personal data of those involved recorded and everything must be done that can contribute to correct and complete clarification of the sequence of events.

The hirer agrees to assume financial responsibility up to the amount of his/her chosen insurance option in case of damage to the motorcycle. The Hirer is expressly reminded that, despite fully comprehensive liability insurance, he/she is still liable for damage in the following cases:

  • If he/she does not comply with the provisions of the contractual agreement.
  • Leaves the site of an accident he/she was involved in.
  • Causes damage intentionally, deliberately or through gross negligence.
  • Exceeds the agreed rental period contrary to the terms of the agreement

The motorcycle shall be returned without any externally visible deficiencies. The Hirer shall return the motorcycle in the same condition at the end of the rental period at the agreed place and time with all vehicle documents, tools and accessories. The Renter shall be entitled to rescind the rental agreement without prior notice if a compelling reason is known that would render continuation of the rental agreement unacceptable. Important reasons include in particular incorrect personal data of the Hirer, information on credit worthiness as well as serious infringement of the provisions of the contractual agreement. In the event of rescission without prior notice the rental motorcycle must be returned immediately, i.e. before the agreed rental period has elapsed. The Renter's right to claim for damages and compensation shall remain unaffected.

The hirer agrees to assume financial responsibility for all traffic infractions incurred on his rental motorcycle for the duration of his rental period.

Cancellation

Cancellations received 60 (and more) days prior to departure will be subject to a 150 Euro per person cancellation fee. For cancellations received less than 60 days prior to departure, cancellation fee (per person) is as follows: 59-30 days= 40% of tour cost; 29-15 days= 70% of tour cost; within 14 days= 100% of tour cost. Trip cancellation insurance is strongly recommended. No exception to this policy can be made for any reason.

Up to two weeks prior to the tour start, MotoTrip can cancel the tour if a sufficient number of customers for the particular tour is not reached. In this case the customer will be notified as soon as possible and MotoTrip will offer to operate the tour if all participants agree to a supplemental charge due to the low number of tour members. If participants do not accept to pay the supplement, MotoTrip will refund their deposit and payments in full, which constitutes the full settlement. MotoTrip is not liable for any additional costs or losses incurred by the participant (for example the cost of pre-paid airline tickets, hotel reservations etc.) due to the cancellation of the tour due to lack of participants. Situations beyond our control may arise which make it necessary for us to reschedule or cancel a tour, change itineraries or make substitutions regarding hotels, cities, guides and other travel arrangements. We do not assume responsibility or liability for any resulting losses, expenses or inconvenience to the participant. MotoTrip is not required to make refunds once the tour commences, regardless of the reason for the participant's inability to complete his tour.

When the tour cannot be started or has to be interrupted or ended for reasons outside of the control of MotoTrip or its contractors or customers as well as in a case of force majeure such as riots, floods, earthquakes, strikes, etc. the contract becomes invalid.

Trip cancellation insurance

MotoTrip offers trip cancellation insurance to our customers. Customers who select this option can receive a refund of tour fees when a customer or traveling companion must cancel or interrupt the trip for reasons covered by this cancellation insurance. It does not cover expenses not paid to MotoTrip (such as airfare), or expenses incurred prior to or after the tour (such as pre-payment of extra hotel nights booked as a courtesy or recommended by MotoTrip).

This insurance can only be purchased at the time of the tour booking. MotoTrip will not accept a request to purchase this insurance after the tour has been booked. Your passenger or roommate will be considered your designated traveling companion. If you are in a single room you may designate a traveling companion prior to the start of the tour.

The cost of this trip cancellation insurance is 7.5% of the total tour price, including motorcycle upgrades, single room supplements and passenger costs, and excluding any charges not paid to MotoTrip.

MotoTrip will make a refund if the customer purchased this insurance and is prevented from starting or completing the tour due to the following:

  • Sickness, accidental injury or death of the customer, the customer’s traveling companion, or an immediate family member or business partner of the customer or traveling companion. The claim must be substantiated by a physician’s statement or other appropriate documentation.
  • The customer or traveling companion being required to serve on a jury or being subpoenaed. The claim must be substantiated by a letter from the court.
  • The customer or traveling companion having his/her home made uninhabitable by fire, flood or other natural disaster. The claim must be substantiated by a letter from the insurance company.
  • The customer or traveling companion being directly involved in a traffic accident substantiated by a police report, when en route to departure.
  • The customer or traveling companion, either of whom is in the military, is called to duty during the period covered by the tour. The claim must be substantiated by letter from the military.
  • A strike, natural disasters or bad weather results in the cancellation of airline service that prevents the customer from arriving in time to participate in the tour.
  • Employment termination, if the customer had been with the same employer for at least two consecutive years, and is terminated through no fault of his own after electing to purchase the insurance. The claim must be substantiated by a termination letter on company letterhead.
  • War or terrorism in a country which is part of the tour which then leads the customer’s government to issue a warning to not travel there during the period when the tour is to take place. Such recommendation must be made after the date of purchase of the Trip Cancellation Insurance.

This Insurance specifically excludes:

  • Expenses not included in the price of the tour, such as airline expenses, extra hotel nights or additional sightseeing activities.
  • Lost, damaged or stolen luggage.
  • Medical costs, including medical evacuation.
  • Pre-existing conditions. Pre-existing conditions are any injury occurring prior to and including the date of purchase of this insurance and any illness occurring during the 120 days prior to and including the date of purchase of this protection, for which treatment by a licensed physician has been sought or advised or for which symptoms exist which would cause a prudent person to seek diagnosis, care or treatment.
  • Any situation not expressly and specifically included above.

If the cancellation occurs prior to the start of the tour, the entire cost will be refunded. If the cancellation occurs during the trip (and the insurance has been purchased), a pro- rated refund will be made for the unused days of the trip.

In the case of flight cancellation or an accident which makes it impossible for the customer to arrive at the starting location of the tour, the customer will have the option of receiving a refund of the tour payment or joining the tour in progress. If the customer wishes to join the tour in progress, MotoTrip will advise the customer as to whether it is feasible to do so. If deemed feasible by MotoTrip and the customer requests that MotoTrip assist with alternate arrangements, all additional costs will be the responsibility of the customer and no pro-rated credit will be granted for any days of the tour that were not used.
