RoadTrip Motorcycle Hire for riding outside the UK
When you book your bike, you must tell us if you going to take it out of the U.K. so that we can make the necessary arrangements for you.
Post Brexit nothing has changed for 2020 and so all RoadTrip Motorcycles are insured and covered by roadside assistance throughout Europe.
We will provide you with a VE103 ‘Vehicle on hire certificate’. This official document (issued by the UK authorities) confirms that you are the legal rider of our motorcycle and there is no valid substitute for it in the E.U.
In the event that you were to be stopped by local police in Europe without the correct documentation then at the very least you can expect to be delayed. At worst you risk having the machine confiscated. Spot checks are also sometimes carried out at ferry ports in France, Holland and Spain and at the Channel Tunnel.
A fee of £40 will be added to the rental charges for this document.
RoadTrip is ideally located for travel to Europe. We are an hour’s ride from Portsmouth ferries to France, Spain and the Channel Islands. We are a 90 mile ride eastward through Kent to the Dover ferries and the Channel Tunnel at nearby Folkestone.
All our bikes are insured and covered for breakdown assistance in the following countries: Andorra. Austria. Belgium. Denmark. Finland. France. Germany. Gibraltar. Italy. Liechtenstein. Luxembourg. Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Republic of Ireland, San Marino, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Vatican City and all off-shore territories of these countries.
Some of our bikes are covered to ride in Eastern Europe as well – please enquire if you wish to travel further afield.
