REFUNDS, CREDITS AND MOTORCYCLE RETURN
We do NOT provide a refund if a motorcycle is returned early however under certain circumstances, a credit for part of the unused rental time may be offered less the cost of returning the motorcycle, depending on the particular circumstances. Some other definitions and proviso's include the following :
- A "credit" means that a hirer can come back and hire another motorcycle to the same value for the number of days offered with certain "use by" date limitations.
- A credit cannot be used as a form of "cash adjustment" for any monies left owing.
- If a motorcycle is damaged as a result of an accident and unable to be ridden to the rides completion, a credit for the unused period of rental time will not be offered.
- If a rider is injured as a result of an accident where the bike only suffers minimal damage, but the rider is unable to continue due to injuries, a credit may be offered depending on the circumstances and extent of motorcycle damage.
- Any credit offered will be calculated from the number of rental days left unused AFTER the motorcycle has arrived back to our Gympie depot including time taken to repair any damage and ready the motorcycle for further use.
- If a motorcycle has to be transported back to Gympie as a result of accident damage, rider incapacity or for any other reason other than unrelated mechanical failure, the transportation costs are to be born by the hirer and may be additional to the amount of the security bond held.
Unforeseen circumstances sometimes arise making a cancellation unavoidable, therefore.
- If we receive your intention to cancel by email 90 days or more prior to the motorcycle start date, we will retain 30% of the total hire fee.
- If we receive your intention to cancel by email 8 days or more but less than 90 days prior to the start date, we will retain 50% of the total hire fee.
- If we receive your intention to cancel by email within 2 to 7 days of the motorcycle start date we will retain 80% of the total hire fee.
- If a cancellation is received within 48 hours of the start date or there is a "no show", we will retain 100% of the hire fee.
Please note that in certain circumstances we may choose to accredit all or part of a non-refunded deposit to a new rental date.
This cancellation policy is our general cancellation policy that applies to straight motorcycle rentals. This policy may differ to our cancellation policy that applies to motorcycle rental when combined with a guided tour.
PARKING TICKETS, SPEEDING FINES & OTHER PENALTIES
The major cities of Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne have toll charges attached to all new inner city freeways and ring roads. These toll roads can be avoided however if you use a toll road, the toll fee MUST BE PAID BY THE HIRER within three days.
This can be done by phoning the number displayed on the large road signs along the toll roads however we have also provided a list of the various State toll road authorities websites on a tank sticker on the bike.
TAKE THE WORRY out of toll payments! You can prepay $50 and we will pay all toll charges on your behalf. This will mainly be of benefit if you are planning a longer term rental that includes most major cities. Please note that this offer does not extend to your speeding and parking fines.
Any speeding fine notices or unpaid toll notices received will incur a charge of $30 per penalty notice as it takes considerable time to process statutory declarations, complete and mail out all necessary paper work.
The following fees will apply.
- Unpaid road tolls: $30.
- Traffic infringement notices: $30.
- Unpaid parking fines: $30.
Please note: If your card is charged, our payment receipt for the above and a copy of the penalty notice will be posted to the address provided on the rental form.
