Motorcycles are perhaps the common form of transportation in the Philippines, whether it’s a tricycle or the usual “habal-habal” ride in the provinces. When you think about it, it is the cheapest and affordable ride there is as it is versatile enough to travel anywhere from city streets to rural dirt roads. Even if you don’t own one, you can always rent for a short-time day trip or city tour.
In times like this, it is a good thing that there is a reliable motorcycle rental service like Book2Wheel that allows you to choose different types of motorcycles and scooters that fit your preferences and needs. As long as you have a valid driving license then you’re good to go on two wheels!
First Things First
Aside from your driving license, you also need one valid ID card so that Book2Wheel can easily verify your identity since you are actually using the motorcycle from its partners who rented out their vehicle. Rental deposit varies so a 125-cc model would cost you P2,000, a 150-cc model is P5,000, and a 200-cc and above models would be P10,000. Rental terms would also vary depending on the owner of it.
Know the Terms
When you’re renting a motorcycle, make sure that you read the owner’s terms and conditions first. Foreign motorcycle drivers should know that they can ride a motorbike in the Philippines with their foreign driver’s license for up to 90 days from the date of your arrival in the country. It is also a best practice to download the rental agreement and have it signed by the motorcycle owner before you go on with your trip.
Search and Book
Visit the website and click the search box and select the city where you want to rent a motorcycle or scooter. From the search results provided, select the vehicle you want to rent. Fill up the form and submit it accordingly. The owner will receive your booking reservation and will confirm it shortly. After that, expect a notification that an email has been sent to you together with the owner’s contact information and pick up location. You need to pay the 20% booking fee before you pick up your ride. After that, you will meet the motorcycle owner and pay the rest of the amount. By then you’re good to go and enjoy your ride.
Once you’re done with your trip, you must return the vehicle to the owner in good condition. Do a little bit of cleaning and refuel it as well.
When you visit the Philippines, renting a motorcycle gives you the flexibility to travel to different places. When it comes to cost, it’s much cheaper than renting a car. In case of accidents and unexpected maintenance, you are better off getting on two wheels as your insurance is expected to cover its cost. Moreover, it would be easier to find someone who would be willing to rent out their motorcycle through Book2Wheel’s platform.
Although traveling on a motorcycle is allowed, back riding passengers are still prohibited until a protective measure is fully implemented.
