Renting a Motorbike in Thailand
Photocopy of your passport
Cash (very rarely will bike shops accept credit cards)
Drivers licence (surprisingly, this isn’t a requirement but we like to carry it with us anyways)
Rent a Motorbike in Thailand that has Insurance
If you rent from larger motorbike shops, some of them offer an insurance upon rental. We highly recommend spending a little bit extra for this as it would save you a bit of money. This insurance often covers damages, loss, or even accidents. Taking it to another level, ask how the insurance claim works and ask to see a draft of the policy. We personally don’t have any experience or have met anyone that was able to claim through the bike insurance so your best bet is to be sure that you have your own personal travel insurance. We’ve seen accidents happen on the road and they can get bad.
