Motorbike Rental Terms and Conditions:

Motorcycles and accessories must be personally collected from and returned to our premises in Cape Town by the renter and during normal trading hours. Although we do try to accommodate all renters requests as much as reasonably possible, different models are subject to availability. We do reserve the right to replace the confirmed model with a similar Motorbike if deemed necessary. Off-road use of our Harley-Davidson rental motorcycles is not allowed and/or insured. Therefore renter is liable for full settlement of any damage that may occur as a result of off-road use to the rented motorcycle. Renter must have held a full Big Bike License (Class A) for at least 1 year. License must at least be valid until the day of return of the rental motorcycle. Renter must be at least 21 years of age, over 1.65 m in length and have full physical ability. Renter is liable for maximum ZAR 15.000 damage excess per incident, as well as for any fines related to traffic misbehavior. The insurance excess liability cannot be wavered and must be paid as a deposit by credit card on collection of the motorcycle. The insurance excess liability will be refunded on return of the motorcycle in undamaged condition. Therefore a walk-around inspection will be carried out with the renter on collection and return of the motorcycle. Only reception of the non-refundable deposit of 30% of the total rental fees confirms a booking. Until a deposit has been received by Cape Bike Travel, a booking is not regarded as confirmed, but merely as an option. Options are valid for 10 days (incl.weekends), thereafter automatically expires. EFT, Visa and Mastercard are accepted for payments and deposits. Prices can be subject to change without prior notice, unless deposit has been paid, in which case the rate is fixed.
