rent a scooter/motobike in Ko Samui

I am going to Ko Samui in January, and I would like to get some advice and price in renting a scooter/bike in Ko Samui.

Is it safe to drive? and also if you would know roughly the price!

Thank you for your help!

Mindy, if you're an experienced rider it's no worries.

Whater you do don't double a passenger if you're not experienced.

There's loads of places to rent from and it wont be more than A$10 a day. You'll need your passport.

Depending on the star of hotel they may organise it for you.

Last Christmas we took scooters everywhere 125cc and had no problems.

You can easily do a round the island trip in a day.

Getting petrol is very interesting, you can buy in a 1 litre bottle or from a hand pump by the side of the road.

have a great trip.

Thank you for your tips, I am going to hire a scooter or a motobike to go around the island, and I think that $10 are not too much, less than pay a taxi during the night also.

I would strongly advise against leaving your passport anywhere let alone a place where you hire a scooter.Most places will ask for it but just offer a copy. If this is not accepted move along to the next place.Unscrupulous operators use the passport as leverage to charge an exorbitant amount for so called "damage".
