A Few Words to Start

Hi guys! Welcome to Cat Motors!

Our motorbike rental company was created by travelers for travelers. We have visited more than 30 countries and we know and understand very well how important it is to choose the right service provider in a foreign country.

With us you can be sure that even in the most difficult situation you will not be left alone and we will try to help you, even if you have driven more than 1000 kilometers from our office in Chiang Mai.

Our goal is quality service and the fastest possible troubleshooting. Because even perfectly maintained bikes sometimes have problems.

Before renting a motorcycle, be sure to read the sections Rental Conditions (here it is written what is included in the price), Tips for drivers, Traffic rules in Thailand and fines.

And remember our main rule: We do not hold your passport as a security deposit. You only need to make a refundable deposit (THB, USD, EUR), which we will return to you after you return the motorcycle to the parking lot of our rental office.

Important Notice

Cat Motors Chiang Mai Thailand Small Banner Rental Rates

We do not rent motorcycles to tourists who have no riding experience. Any adequate person should understand that a motorcycle is a vehicle of increased danger. If, after signing the contract, our staff discovers that you do not know how to ride a motorcycle, your motorcycle rental agreement will be immediately canceled.

– Oh! What a nice guy! He’s such a funny joke!
– No, I am not joking. Thailand ranks first in the world in the number of motorcycle deaths annually on the roads.

For example, in Greece this coefficient is 8 times lower, in the USA 15 times, in Spain 30 times.

Therefore, I will repeat this one more time: We do not rent motorcycles to tourists who have no riding experience. If, after signing the contract, our staff discovers that you do not know how to ride a motorcycle, your motorcycle rental agreement will be immediately canceled.

In the case that you mislead our staff regarding your driving skills or present a fake driver’s license purchased on the Internet, our company does not bear any responsibility, even if your trip ends in death. Therefore, if you have no riding experience, please choose another motorcycle rental service to commit suicide. If you ignored all of our warnings… Well, maybe it’s not so bad. Eventually, thanks to natural selection evolution took place on our planet.

Let’s ride!

* The cost of renting a motorcycle depends on the rental period. The current rates apply for a one-month rental contract. If you need a motorcycle for any other number of days, from 1 day to 365, in this case, specify the rental price with our manager. You can find our contacts on Location and Contacts page.

Your benefits when working with us

  1. Our company is located in the historical center of Chiang Mai, and it is very convenient to get to us from anywhere in the city, including the airport, railway station and bus terminal. City bus or taxi apps will be equally fast and very inexpensive.
  2. We are located on the main road, so you don’t have to look for us in very narrow back streets, in the backyards of residential buildings, in underground parking lots of hotels or shopping centers.
  3. Working hours in our company are from 8 am to 6 pm. We do not have lunch breaks or weekends, we work every day, even on holidays such as New Years and Christmas. Therefore, you can be sure that by visiting us on any day of the week you will find our office open and be able to use our services.
  4. Free delivery of a motorcycle around the city when concluding a lease agreement for a week or more. You do not need to run around an unfamiliar city in search of a reliable motorcycle and waste your precious time. That being said, you can be sure that our motorcycle rental has one of the best value for money in Chiang Mai.
  5. Unlimited mileage. You can ride your motorcycle as much as you like. There are no restrictions.
  6. Timely maintenance of motorcycles. If your light bulb burns out, your battery is dead or you need to change your engine oil, we will do it for free, because this service is already included in the price. If it takes a long time to fix the problem, we will provide you with another bike.
  7. We provide scooters with fully functional brakes. If this is not your first time in Thailand and have previously rented a motorcycle elsewhere, you probably know what I mean. Also, be sure to read this article on brakes and brake fluids and why brakes sometimes fail on long downhill descents due to the rider’s inexperience.
  8. Full tank of gasoline. Immediately after renting a motorcycle, you do not need to urgently look for a gas station to buy fuel, since it is already filled in the gas tank. But don’t forget that our rental conditions are full-full. Therefore, when returning the motorcycle to the parking lot, you need to return it with a full tank of gasoline, or pay a service fee.
  9. Anti-theft lock. Of course, if motorcycle thieves come to steal your bike in a truck, then the anti-theft lock will not help in any way. However, if the anti-theft lock is in place, the thief will most likely turn their attention to a different bike than yours, since it is much easier to steal another bike.
    Rain poncho for driver and passenger. Rain catches you while traveling, it will help you and your passenger stay dry and not catch a cold.
  10. Good quality three-quarter helmets with built-in shields to protect against flies, mosquitoes, insects, spiders, sand and other debris flying to your face during the trip. Please note that we do not have cap helmets because we truly believe that cap helmets are made for people with suicidal tendencies. Because they will not protect your head in any way.
    The tires on all of our bikes are in good condition. However, according to the manufacturer’s instructions, the rider should inflate the tires once a week or every time you get to refuel, whichever occurs more often.
  11. First aid kit. You don’t need to look for a pharmacy or a medical center far in the mountains in the middle of nowhere if you suddenly get into an accident. Our first-aid-kit already contains bandages, iodine, hydrogen peroxide and pain reliever.
  12. Health insurance for rider and passenger up to 300,000 baht each (read more about health insurance here). Please note: if you are involved in an accident, we will help you get compensation step by step, rather than leave you alone with the problem, as many other motorcycle rental companies do.
  13. Honest and reliable service. No one will ask you to pay fake losses, and you can find out the prices for spare parts in our office on information posters hanging in the most conspicuous place. For the avoidance of misunderstanding, it is your responsibility to photograph the appearance of the motorcycle on the day of the rental. No need to ask our staff, “Can I take a picture of the bike?” You should do this.

Points to which you should pay extra attention:

  1. If you have a punctured wheel, then you must pay to repair the wheel. You pierced – you pay. This is how all motorcycle rentals in the world work, and our rental shop is no exception. But in this case, we will help you find a local mechanic and call him to the scene, wherever you are.
  2. Lease terms “full-full”. This means that you rent a motorcycle with a full tank of gas and must return it with a full tank of gas. If, when returning the motorcycle to the parking lot, the fuel tank is not full according to the fuel gauge, then we will charge a service fee.
  3. If you return the motorcycle dirty (lumps of dirt, bitumen mastic), we will also charge a service fee.
  4. We do not provide any assistance if you are drunk or under the influence of drugs.
  5. The official language of Thailand is Thai. English is not the official language of the Kingdom of Thailand. Therefore, do not be surprised that some of our employees do not speak pure English like people living in Manhattan (New York) or Baker Street (London). Our top priority is to provide serviceable motorbikes for travel and resolve problems as soon as possible if they arise. If communication in pure English is more important to you than a reliable motorbike, please choose another motorcycle rental service provider.

Feedback From Our Clients

1000+ km with pleasure and good mood! Recommended!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Rented four motorcycles for two weeks for a family trip to Chiang Rai and Mae Hong Son. The registration time is 10 minutes, the prices are very affordable, the motorcycles are in good condition, we drove 1000+ km with pleasure and good mood. Recommended!

Valery Tan from Singapore, TripAdvisor

Top Quality

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

They have top quality bikes, best helmets and are super responsive via messenger. I rented for two and a half month there and would totally recommend. I tried 3 other places in Chiang Mai before but this one was best. Hard to top I think.

Erik Scholz on Facebook

Great Experience

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

I rented a 125 automatic for 9 days, and the price was very reasonable. I checked out other shops and none of them were able to match the same price or even come close. I also like to able to select the bike that I want and Cat Motors have many to choose from. Other shops will bring the only one you ask for, so you don’t get a chance to look them over.

The bike ran went well and drove through 1864 curves. I took it easy and treat the bike over bumps and around the corners to make sure no damage to the bike and make the trip safely. Thai drivers are great. They don’t honk or rush you if you are holding up traffic. They just drive pass you. 125 cc is more than enough for one rider. It’s convenient to drive around town.

A recommendation for those who plan to do long trip is to rent the bike for an extra day or two to test the bike out and become familiar with it. I was glad I took the bike on a day trip to Doi Inthanon and Chiang Dao before heading off to do Mae Hong Son loop.

Highly recommend

Second time long term monthly rental here. Highly recommend. Great staff, very professional and helpful.

Great place to rent a motorbike!

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

We rented a crf250 rally for a month, great bike! Friendly staff and the bikes are in great condition. Also got a couple of full face helmets with the bike for free. You don’t have to leave your passport just a cash deposit. And if you rent a bike for a longer period it’s cheaper per day. We had zero problems the entire month so definitely a good experience. Highly recommend these guys and would rent from them again!

Sebastian from Netherlands, TripAdvisor

Very happy to recommend them

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Very Happy with their service. You can’t go wrong hiring from these people. Very happy to recommend them.

Malcolm Webster on Facebook

Great Bike

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

We had a great time renting our bike. The service was great and it took no time renting and returning the bike. Scooter is definitely the quickest and cheapest way of getting around if you brave enough to do it on Chiang Mai’s busy streets. While the deposit was quite a lot of money (3000THB), it was well worth it!

Elizabeth from South Carolina, TripAdvisor

Well serviced and great to ride

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

We rented bikes for a week, they were well serviced and great to ride! Highly recommend Cat motors, and the Mae Hong Son loop!

Charlotte Anne on Facebook

Great Service and Great Bike

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

I dropped a number of bike rental companies in Chiang Mai an email to enquiry about bike availability and cost. Cat Motors were the only one to reply quickly. A quick WhatsApp chat and I booked a bike for a week and within an hour they delivered the bike to my hotel. A quick and simple registration and payment process followed by the customary condition check and I was soon enjoying the open roads of Chiang Mai – well, at least significantly more open than Bangkok LOL. I rode the bike extensively within Chiang Mai and to some of the more distant temples. The bike never let me down and was remarkably fuel efficient. At the end of the week, Cat Motors collected the bike from my hotel. They were professional, friendly and accommodating and I have no hesitation recommended them.

Wills from United Kingdom, TripAdvisor

Awesome shop to rent your bike

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

Cat Motors is an awesome shop to rent your bike. My bike was in a good state, it was easy to extend the duration of my rented bike during the Mao Hong Son Loop. Furthermore, no passport as a deposit is a big plus.

Incredibly Friendly Staff and Excellent Condition Motorcycles

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

I have been renting from Cat Motors for just over two years. Their staff have always been incredibly friendly, no matter what my query or problem was. Their motorcycles are also in excellent condition, and are serviced regularly. If you’re looking for the best value for money on a rental, Cat Motors is the place to rent from.

Larry on Facebook

Very professional

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

This is a first class bike rental company. We rented 2 bikes to do the Mae Hong son loop and they never missed a beat during the entire 700km. When returning the bikes they refunded a 500 baht over-payment which I hadn’t even realized I had made. ( After paying a deposit for the bikes I then paid the full amount on collection). Absolute honesty from this very professional company. Really, don’t hesitate to use them.

Good scooter, great team!

Very professional, fair and helpful staff. We got a great Click,drove it up to Pai and back, and kept our big bags with them while doing it. Check in and check out was seamless. The lady down the street at Dang was trying to smooth talk but wanted to keep our passport. Nope! Glad we headed over to Cat!!

Maven from NYC, TripAdvisor

Absolutely no hassle

⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

I took bikes on two occasions from these guys. The first was a couple of auto bikes for use around town. Absolutely no hassle. Easy to rent, do paperwork, and also return and get deposit back etc.. I felt totally comfortable with these guys. The second was they gave me a bike to tour FOC and I did the Mae Hong Son Loop for 6 days. Again, the bike never missed a beat and I had a great time. Returned it, got my deposit and all was cool. I totally recommend these guys as they are genuine and do what they say they do. A breathe of fresh air in a dog eat dog industry.

Wir haben zwei Roller 125cc für eine Woche gemietet. Wir waren rundum zufrieden. Würden jederzeit wieder bei Cat Motors Roller leihen.

+ Übergabe mit vollem Tank. Wir konnten direkt durchstarten
+ first aid kit in jedem Roller
+ gratis Regencape
+ Personal sehr freundlich und fachkundig
