May be we were lucky or may be our clients were especially careful, fact is we had no significant damages and insurance claims this year – so far – and so the yearly november insurance meeting went well. The changes for 2019 are as follows and we are quite sure most of you will highly appreciate them:
a) from january 1st, 2019 theft insurance will be fully included for free in all rental fees
b) to avoid clashes with motorcycle rentals and tour bookings Tokyo Rentals online rentals will end, motorbike rentals-only must be initiated by email and we will confirm by email and sending our smartphone number
c) Deposit for damages and maximum amount insurance excess will be set to just 1000 USD for each and any motorcycle.
d) every motorcycle on our 2019 list can be rented at 490 USD / week, 950 USD / 2 weeks, 1380 USD /3 weeks , fully geared up with ETC reader, 3 cases ( Ducati only with 2 paniers ) , JAF card, Garmin Zumo, japanese TMK or your own smartphone on X-grip as GPS system and of course including free mileage as well as including comprehensive insurance.
e) For weekly or longer rentals: Accessories like Sena communication no more on a daily base but just 30 USD/piece per rental term, regardless whether 1, 2 or 3 weeks.
To showcase: send an email asking for availability of your desired bike for a week, lets assume BMW K1200GT in full touring set up. Bike is available, Garmin Zumo, ETC reader + card, 2 panier case + top case. You come over , put 1000$ on the desk or paypal 1000$ as deposit, pay your 490 USD week fee and off you go. Enjoy, come back without damage and full tank, have a coffee with us, get your deposit back instantly and leave with a smile and hopefully to be back next year. You also do not need japanese language skills at our office , your english, german, french or italian will do easily – if italian we may ask you to do us a favor and bring some lavazza, moro or segafredo from your homeland with you…..
We think that for touring oriented clients this new set of pricing and terms is the most easy and comfortable to handle, no add-ons, no hidden prices, no gimmicks, just plain and simple fair prices with all you need for touring in Japan already included. Simply forget all these nagging ..How much is this or that to add..essentials are already in.
All the best and as always drive safely
