Motorcycle & Guided Tour Reservation and Deposit

Riders are required to know how to ride a motorcycle. Any riders that are unable to ride when joining a tour will be excluded from the tour and no refund offered. This is a very important clause as your safety is in our hands and if you are unable to ride you are then putting yourself and the others at risk.
A valid identity document or passport and driving license must be produced on the collection of all motorcycles. No license = no ride.
The vehicle rider and The Saxon House will jointly check the condition of the vehicle and tires before signing the contract.
Motorcycles are handed out with a full tank and must return with a full tank. The client is also liable for any gas costs throughout the tours.
Vehicle riders are responsible for the cost of any damage to the bike while it is in their care unless the damage has been caused by an identified third party.
A 500eur cash fully refundable security deposit is required on arrival to cover any damages that may be caused by the rider. The deposit will be refunded in full at the end of the stay if no damages occur, excluding normal wear and tear.
The Saxon House is not liable for any injuries caused to the rider by the improper or unsafe use of the motorcycles.
All minor damages under 500 euro will be paid for by the client. If it is possible we will fix the bikes ourselves, in this case, the renter will pay only for the parts. The Saxon House reserves the right to choose if it can offer this service to the client or not.
If the vehicle is returned undamaged and no damage has been caused to anybody else’s property whilst renting the vehicle, the damage deposit will be returned in full.
If the vehicle is returned damaged or with parts missing, the damage deposit shall be forfeited in part or in whole by the client.
