About
Oli’s Motorbike Rentals, a Swiss/Thai-owned business, has built a good reputation offering a safe and confident rental experience to its customers since 2014. As well as automatic motorbikes and mountain bikes, we’re the only operator on the island to offer electric bicycles – great for those with no motorbike experience! Our main priority is the safety of our customers combined with good quality service. Our team will explain how to use our bikes in a friendly and understandable way. For our customers staying on the west side of the island, we provide a Pick-up / Drop-off Service from your resort or villa. We pick up the driver of each bike and then at the end of the rental period, we'll drop the same drivers back at your resort or villa. We also provide you with an island map showing you the best spots for snorkeling/swimming and information about the Traffic Rules and Hazards you have to be aware of so you can explore our beautiful island in a safe and hazard-free manner.

We rented a scooter and two helmets from Oli's for 4 days. We received a well maintained but visibly used (e.g. with scratches) automatic scooter which worked flawlessly. It had enough power to get our combined weight of approx. 130 kg even up the steep hills at Sai Daeng Beach. Initially, we rented the scooter for only 2 days but as we changed our plans to stay on Koh Tao for longer we just kept the bike and paid the due amount when we gave it back. Unfortunately, we didn't hand it in with a full tank so we had to pay a little extra, but that was our decision and we were fully aware that we would have to pay a little more because of it. We are very satisfied with the fair service and great simplicity that comes with renting your bike at Oli's and can only recommend it to everyone.

Very easy process taking 5-10 minutes. Fill in rental agreement, leave ID, film around the bike so you record all the scratches.
When bringing back owner had no complains and gave my ID back, took 30 seconds.
Highly recommend!

I chose this place because of their reviews and I got the great service I expected. I would use them again.

For anyone renting a bike on the island, get careful as some of the hills are too big for the 125cc bike. The roads are also broken. If you want to visit beaches rent a long tail boat for 4 hours and access them to snorkel that way rather than go by bike.

If you want to be safe and have a really strong and regular maintained scooter that gets you up every hill on the island better choose olis! Even if you got a issue his staff will be there in 10min or less to help you out. Even if you brake something the prices are super fair and if you need any other help regarding food, party, diving or whatever on the island just ask them and they will tell you where to go. See u next time buddy and thanks for everything again 😊🙏👍

Olis Motorbike can be recommended without reservation. Located directly on the pier. Trustworthy staff, fair prices and good scooters.

On our next visit to Koh Tao, we will definitely rent our scooters again from Olli.

We are already very much looking forward to it.

I did rent a bike for 2 days and could easily extend for 1 more days. I felt the brakes where a little loose after 1 day and asked them - it got fixed immediately.
Unfortunately I had a minor accident which left quite a few scratches on the whole right side of the scooter. Nothing serious was damaged but there were definitely way more scratches than before.
I heard that a lot of places scam you and charge you even for minor things so I was afraid how much that would cost. But when I arrived there and told about the accident they just cheched if everything is working right and when they saw it was they did not charge me anything.
You might pay a little more than at other places here but that also means they don't need to scam you at all. I felt way better knowing that.
So I would always recommend going there.

My wife and are are just back from our trip to Koh Tao. Chose Oli's on the strength of their excellent reviews on here and we rented a scooter for three days during our trip.

Collection was quick and easy- as I ride bikes at home the staff member didn't need to explain anything to me about operation etc.

When choosing helmets I found the selection to be pretty limited. Almost all are open Face which you'd expect in a hot country. My issue is that the quality and condition of them was fairly poor- the only one that fitted my wife was a very slim model which in truth looked more like a horse riding helmet would (at least in the UK). It was not DOT/CE approved and would provide very limited protection. I feel that given that a large majority of customers are likely to be European/US investing in some helmets that meet recognised safety standards would look great and provide that little bit extra peace of mind.

Nonetheless luckily we didn't fall off and the three days went fine. The bike was a little tired in appearance but ran fine and there were no issues.

On handing it back I didn't think it was really given a second glance to check for condition! I had taken pics of it when I collected in case there were issues around scratches etc however as pointed out in previous reviews Oli's aren't particularly fussy in this respect which is good.

Overall I recommend Oli's as a hassle free and pleasant experience.

Rented a scooter from Oli's for just over a week when staying in Koh Tao. They are a very easy going but informative service and have a good reputation in the area. Scratch insurance is available as an option at a daily rate. Really reasonable prices and stress free experience. The bikes are in very good condition and they give you their number in case any issues. Worth taking a photo of the rules and policies notice they have in the wall for the driving rules and etiquette in Thailand. Would use again.

If you are looking somewhere trustworthy to rent a motorbike in Koh Tao then this is the place. Can leave a cash deposit or driving licence, instead of passport. No hassle when returning the bike. A little more expensive than some other places (250 baht per day) but worth it.

Oli is honest, easy to work with, and his bikes are always in great running order. Wouldn't rent from anyone else. I have rented from Oli for three years in a row. His staff is great and the location is also convenient for dropping the bike off near the ferry terminal.
