It is sometimes difficult for customers to understand the possible liability they will incur if they have an accident on a rental motorcycle. Motorbike rental ‘insurance’ is in fact very different to the insurance purchased for privately owned vehicles and those excesses are much higher. Chopper’s Motorcycles provides the following options to reduce both the multi-vehicle and single vehicle excesses in the event of an accident.
