Information about Car and Bike Rentals in Goa
If you are visiting Goa, you will look to rent cars and bikes for intra- and inter-city travel. This blog is the definitive guide to Car and Bike Rentals in Goa.
A major highlight of every Goa holiday is cruising on a two-wheeler and feeling the cool coastal breeze running through your hair. Or if you have an inclination for four wheelers, maybe a longish, calm drive along Goa’s coastline will do the trick. For this you must have adequate knowledge of car and bike rentals in Goa. Let us first look at your options:
Bikes are the best way of local communication in Goa. But when you’re in Goa, there is no need to bring your own bikes. As locals have that facility and this is quite very common in Goa. Goa has the facility for hiring bikes at various rates, on the basis of power and model numbers. You can hire a bike model, ranging from Enfield to gear free kinetic scooters. The price ranges from Rs. 300 to Rs. 500 per day, according to the power, speed, season and capacity.
Apart from bikes, bicycles are also a wonderful way of local transportation. Those who are not comfortable with bikes can easily opt for less complicated ones. It serves both ways, as a transport and a workout device. Helmets are mandatory for bike riders.
There is no need for an internationally permit driving license, but it’s wise to bring one. The first thing a policeman would want to see if he stops you is your license. However, an international permit is unquestionable. Permits are available from your home automobile association. If you are leaving the state, you are not required to produce any original documents for the vehicle you’re driving.
Other than the high season, you might avail a scooter for as low as Rs. 100 per day. If you get an old kinetic down to Rs. 130 or so, you’re doing very well. You are expected to pay Rs. 600 for an Enfield and Rs. 400 for a 1000cc bike.
