Be careful whenever you rent a bike, or a jetski or a boat.

As mostly these vehicles do not have insurance. And when you get involved in an accident, you will pay for all the damages regardless if you are right or wrong. It is always that way, as Thai Police will always take the side of their follow countrymen over you in dispute.

Also show respect for the Thai Police as rude talk and/or shouting should be avoided in every case, guilty or not. Thai Police officers have much greater powers of action than for example their European counterparts and will not accept disrespectful behaviour.

Also check your vehicle for damage before you start, otherwise you might have to pay for damages you did not cause.
