We decided we wanted to ride from Hanoi to HCM on motorbikes and did some research on the best way to do it. The most common way seemed to be buy a bike in Hanoi and sell it in HCM. We didn't really favour this option as not knowing too much about motorbikes we didn't know what to look for in a good bike and also didn't want the hassle of having to sell the bikes again in HCM.
Flamingo provide an excellent alternative to this. The people at the shop were really helpful, even suggesting a route and list of places to stay.
The guys at the garage were equally great, giving us some practice on the bikes before we set off and giving us confidence in the bikes.
We had a few hiccups on our journey but this was our doing not that of flamingo (punctures, getting lost, rain storms!) in fact we were confident in the bikes and Flamingo for the whole period.
On arriving in HCM after a couple of hours riding in the traffic we found the hotel and were finished with our trip.
A quick call to the HCM branch to give them our location ad they came to check over our bikes and collect them.
This was an excellent service with documents and deposit returned readiily. My bike had some damage from a fall which resulted in the loss of a small amount of the deposit but this was very reasonable and fully justified.
Over all I would highly recommend Flamingo to anybody who wants a bike but doesn't want the hassle of buying and selling one, also having confidence the bike has been maintained in good working order. Nice powerful bikes too!
Over all loved them and couldn't recommend them more.
