Rental Rates

A Few Words to Start

Welcome to Cat Motors! Our motorcycle rental company was created by travelers for travelers. We have visited over 30 countries, and we know and understand how important it is to choose the right service provider in a foreign country.

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

Before you rent a motorcycle, read the Terms and Conditions (here, what is included in the price), Tips for RidersTraffic Rules in Thailand.

We are committed to providing the best possible service and troubleshooting as quickly as possible. After all, even perfectly maintained motorcycles sometimes have problems.

And remember our main rule: We never take your passport as a deposit. You only need to pay a refundable cash deposit (THB, USD, EUR), which we will return to you after returning the bike to our rental shop.

 

Important Notice

We do not rent motorcycles to travelers with no driving experience. Anyone in their right mind should understand that a bike is a high-risk vehicle.

– Oh! What a cute guy! He makes such a funny joke!

No, I’m not joking. Unfortunately, Thailand ranks first in the world in the number of motorcyclists killed on the roads yearly. For example, in Greece, the rate is eight times lower than in Thailand; in the US, it is 15 times lower; in Spain, it is 30 times lower.

So I will repeat once again: We do not rent motorcycles to travelers without riding experience. If, after signing the contract, our staff finds that you do not know how to run a bike, we will cancel this rental contract.

If you mislead our staff about your driving skills or present a fake driving license purchased online, our company is not responsible, even if your ride ends in death. Therefore, if you have no driving experience, please choose another motorcycle rental service to commit suicide. On the other hand, if you’ve ignored all of our warnings, maybe it’s not so bad. After all, evolution has taken place on our planet thanks to natural selection.

Let’s ride!

If you are not a beginner, if you have good experience riding a motorcycle, then the information below is published for you.

* 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 motorbike 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 the Location and Contacts page.

Your benefits when working with us

  1. Our company is located in the historic center of Chiang Mai, and we are easy to reach from anywhere in the city, including the airport, train station, and bus terminal. For example, using the InDriver app, you can take a cab from Chiang Mai International Airport to our office for less than 60 baht.
  2. We are located on the main road, so you don’t have to look for us in narrow back alleys, residential courtyards, and underground parking lots of hotels or shopping malls.
  3. Our working hours are from 8:00 to 18:00. We have no lunch breaks or weekends, and we work every day, even on holidays like New Year’s and Christmas. So you can be sure that if you come to us any day of the week, you will find our office open and be able to use our services.
  4. Free delivery of the motorcycle around the city when you sign a rental agreement for a week or more. You do not need to waste your precious time. We will deliver your motorcycle to your place of residence. Please make an appointment at least 24 hours in advance so we can plan our staff’s work. In any case, feel free to ask us about the delivery.
  5. Unlimited mileage. You can ride your motorcycle for as long as you want. There are no restrictions.
  6. Timely maintenance of motorcycles. If you have a burned-out light bulb, the battery is dead, or the engine oil needs to be changed, we will do it for free because this service is already included in the rental price. If it takes a long time to fix the problem, we will provide you with another motorcycle.
  7. We provide vehicles with fully serviceable brakes. If this is not your first time in Thailand and you have rented a motorcycle elsewhere, you probably know what I’m talking about. Also, read this article about brakes and brake fluids and why brakes sometimes fail on long mountain descents due to driver inexperience.
  8. A full tank of gasoline. Once you have signed a motorcycle rental agreement, you do not have to immediately look for a gas station to buy fuel because it is already filled in the gas tank. But don’t forget that our rental conditions are “full – full”. Therefore, when you return the bike to the parking lot, you must return it with a full gasoline tank.
  9. Anti-theft lock. Of course, if motorcycle thieves arrive in a truck to steal your motorcycle, an anti-theft lock won’t help. However, suppose an anti-theft lock is installed. In that case, a thief without a truck is likelier to turn his attention to another motorcycle than yours because it will be easier to steal another motorbike.
  10. Rain poncho for driver and passenger. If the rain catches you on the road, a poncho will help you, and your passenger stays dry and does not catch a cold.
  11. Three-quarter helmets with shields protect your eyes from flies, mosquitoes, insects, spiders, sand, and other debris flying in your face as you ride the bike. Note that we don’t have helmet “caps” because we honestly believe that helmet caps are designed for people with suicidal tendencies. After all, they will not protect your head in the case of an accident. A cap helmet is a crap helmet – remember that.
  12. The tires on all of our bikes are in good condition. However, according to the manufacturer’s instructions, the rider should inflate the tires at least once a week or every time he refuels at a gas station, whichever occurs more often. The standard pressure on most tires is 32 psi.
  13. A first aid kit. You don’t need to look for a pharmacy or a medical center far away in the mountains in the middle of nowhere if you have an accident. Our first aid kit contains bandages, iodine, hydrogen peroxide, alcohol disinfectant, and painkillers.
  14. We have medical insurance for drivers and passengers for up to 300,000 baht each. Please note: if you get into an accident, we will help you get compensation from the insurance company step by step, not leave you alone with your problem. If you are involved in an accident, let us know immediately so we can help you.
  15. Honest and reliable service. No one will ask you for fake damages, and you can find spare parts prices in our office on information posters hanging in the most prominent place. To avoid misunderstandings, you should take a picture of the motorcycle’s exterior on the day of rental. You do not need to ask our staff, “Can I take a picture of the bike?” You can do it, sure.

Points to which you should pay extra attention:

  1. If you puncture a tire, you must pay to have it repaired. Because your choice of roads to ride on and your driving style is your choice, we are not responsible for that. This is how all motorcycle and car rentals work; ours is no exception. However, feel free to let us know about the problem, and we’ll help you find a local mechanic and call them wherever you are.
  2. The conditions for renting motorcycles in our rental shop are “full-full”. This means that you rent a bike with a full tank of gasoline and should return it with a full tank. If the tank is not full when you return it, we will charge you a gas fee and an additional service fee of 200THB.
  3. If you return your rental bike to the parking lot dirty (clumps of dirt, bitumen mastic), we charge a service fee. Washing the motorcycle is 50THB. Bitumen cleaning – 500THB.
  4. We do not provide any assistance if you are under alcohol or drugs.
  5. The official language of Thailand is Thai. English is not the official language of the Kingdom of Thailand. So don’t be surprised that some of our employees don’t speak pure English like people living in Manhattan, New York, or Baker Street, London. Our top priority is to provide good motorcycles for your trip and to solve sudden technical problems as quickly as possible if you have them. If communication in fluent English is more important to you than a reliable and serviceable motorcycle, then please choose another motorcycle rental provider to avoid the frustration of dealing with our staff.
  6. Zero tolerance for cheaters. We have the right to terminate any relationship with customers and contact the Royal Police or Tourist Police if we find that a customer is trying to cheat us by taking advantage of our goodwill, openness, and trust.

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 Motors!

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
