We are open Monday to Saturday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

We open on Sundays and bank holidays by appointment for an additional € 25 per motorcycle.

 

You can take a rental extension which will allow you to return the motorcycle on the next morning.

 

How long does it take to get started with the bike?

Following your reservation, your motorbike and your contract will be ready before your arrival and the administrative part will be quick.

We will then take a moment to explain the functionalities of the bike and GPS. This time depends on your needs.

It usually takes between 10 and 30 minutes for the administrative part and explanations. 

Then, you will take the time you need to load your motorcycle.

 

If I drop the motorcycle, what will I pay?

The deductible is 650 € or 1000 € depending on the model, for damage to the motorcycle.

This is the maximum amount you will pay in the event of damage covered by the insurance.

However, if the amount of the repairs is less than the deductible, you will only pay the amount of the repairs.

 

You can also have a reduced deductible if you wish.

Thank you for contacting us.

 

We are going to take the highway in Switzerland, does the motorway vignette comes with the motorcycle?

We don't buy a vignette for the motorcycles. If you're lucky, a previous customer will have bought it for you.

It is only needed to ride on the Swiss motorways. If you avoid motorways, no stickers is required. The GPS will help you to avoid the motorways.

The vignette costs CHF 40 and is available at most petrol stations in Switzerland.

 

I am a foreigner, do I need an international driving license?

If the A Class (all types of motorcycles) appears on your driving license, it is perfect. We don’t need any international driving license.

 

If not, the Swiss and French police forces are not supposed to understand what is written on your license.

An international driving license is an official translation of your license. If you have a motorcycle license, the “A” class will have a stamp on it.

 

Without the international license, a demanding policeman may consider your license as not valid.

 

To be fully in compliant with the law, we recommend to carry an international license with your original license.

 

Most of the time, you can get one from your local authorities or automobile club for a small fee or for free.

At the pick-up of your motorcycle, we will take the time to explain how to use them.

If, however, you wish to have an additional lock to secure the motorcycle, we can provide it.

We will explain the main functions of GPS during the briefing.

 

 

Can I rent a motorcycle with my driving license from my country ?

Yes, on your driving license must appear A category for all types of motorcycle.

 

If this is not the case (US citizen or non-EU driving license), the international driving license is required.

The international driving license is an official translation of your driving license. This can also be requested by the police if A category does not appear on your license.

 

In the absence of your international license, your license may be considered as not valid by the authorities.
