Damage Deposit

The damage deductible is taken ( pre-authorised ) when you are completing your paperwork in Celtic Rider, prior to you setting off on tour. The amount to be pre-authorised is €1,500 for all BMW motorcycles and €2,500 for the Can-Am Spyders. If our vehicles are being brought off the island of Ireland (Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland are within the island of Ireland), this damage deductible increases by €1000. This sum is fully refunded upon return of your vehicle, undamaged, and represents the most that you will be charged if the bike is damaged. Celtic Rider DO NOT profit from damage on bikes, only parts and labour are charged for, damaged parts are replaced, not repaired.

Riding Gear

In July 2018 we secured the agency for one of the Worlds premier motorcycle riding gear brands, KLIM. We invested in KLIM riding gear for hire, meaning all riders hiring our riding gear are guaranteed to remain dry whilst wearing the best in protective riding gear during their tour. Available in sizes from X Small to XXXX Large in both men’s and ladies. Renting KLIM gear means you do not have to take a waterproof jacket and pants which eases up space on the bike. The daily cost of KLIM riding gear hire is €25.

We replenish our stock yearly, ensuring our clients get the most comfort and protection possible. Hiring our riding gear takes away the hassle of carrying your own through airports etc, and of course minimizes the hefty costs involved with airlines and weight restrictions.
