Motorcycle Rental Made Easy
The process of renting a retro motorcycle and sidecar from RetroVentures is much the same as renting from a mainstream provider like Hertz or Alamo. The only real difference is we are much nicer and our bikes have two wheels, not four! You can reserve a motorcycle by phone, email, or contact form. We'll send you a couple of forms to complete electronically and all the paperwork can be done before you arrive.
We will show you everything you need to know about your motorcycle before you head off. Our bikes have modern controls and a familiar layout. We've also teamed up with CC Rider Training to provide our overseas customers with optional motorcycle training. Make your tour in Ireland safer and take a 1 or 2 hour RSA approved familiarisation session. Details on Request (subject to availability).
The rental rates shown above are on a "per 24 hr day" basis with collection from and return to our premises near Adare, Co. Limerick - the least cost method of renting our bikes. Delivery and collection is extra.
Additional Rider Policy
Rates are for a single rider. Additional riders can be added for an additional €50 per day. Pillion passenger / sidecar passenger rides free.
Our motorcycles are provided with sufficient fuel to get you to the nearest filling station and should be returned empty. On occasion our motorcycles will be provided full of fuel and in this case should be returned full.
Insurance Excess Deposit Policy
We require an insurance excess deposit to be placed by credit card or debit card. The card must be in the name of the hirer and registered at the hirer's current normal residential address. Insurance Excess Security deposits vary from €zero to €5,000 depending on the rate paid for the hire.
Rental Season and Times
Motorcycles are available to hire all year round
. Hire periods are charged on a 24 hour basis (or part thereof). We are the only motorcycle rental company in Ireland to provide rentals during the late fall (autumn,) winter and early spring. Summer is our favourite time though! Please see our Contact Us
page for short seasonal closures.
Motorcycle Protective Gear
We have a limited amount of motorcycle rider protective gear for hire. However, experience shows that most riders prefer to wear their own gear and bring it with them - so that would be preferable. If your helmet does not fit in your luggage then we have plenty of helmets here.
Gear Rental Prices are as follows:
Open Face or Full Face Crash Helmet - free
Armoured Jacket - €7.50 per day
Protective Trousers - €7.50 per day
Boots - €5.00 per day
Gloves - €0.00 per day
SatNav GPS - €0.00 per day
