Deposit. Each motorcycle

amount will be frozen on
your credit card, but not cashed. Please ensure that you have enough funds
to cover the rental price and the damage deposit on your cards. No

still held liable for the rental payment charges in full.

to the vehicle. In some cases for particular models this may not be the

Insurance: All vehicles are requested by law in Italy to have third
party liability insurance. So all rental vehicles will be covered against
damages towards third parties and transported passengers. There is no
possibility to have fully comprehensive insurance on rental motorcycles in
Italy. Any limitation on damages on the motorcycle is made on the back of
the rental company. This is the reason why there are different damage
deposits depending on model and value of the motorcycles. In case of total
destruction or theft you will loose your entire damage deposit. In the
event of damages to the bike, the damage deposit
will be held on standby by the rental company and once damage has been
assessed, you will informedand charged
5.1) damage to the rented
motorcycle resulting from
accidents between rental bikes are NOT covered by the third party
liability insurance. In this instance the rental clients will be fully liable for
any damage caused to people or motorcycles with no limitation.
5.2) damage to the rented motorcycle resulting from an accident where the
rental client was under the influence of alcohol or drugs will also
from the damage deposit limitation.
5.3) damage resulting from the rental client's
gross misconduct will also NOT benefit from the damage deposit limitation
5.4) in the event that your rented vehicle is
confiscated by the police for circumstances depending from the rental
client's negligence, the rental client will be held liable for rental
the time the vehicle remains in police custody and for any additional
charges related to this offence
We will always strive to
supply the reserved motorcycle. However, in some instances this may not be
possible. (E.g. the previous rental customer damages your wished
motorcycle severely a few days prior to your rental commencement). CIMT and
associates will supply an alternative equivalent replacement motorcycle.
In the unlikely event that this would not be possible CIMT and associates
will provide a complete rental fee refund. CIMT will not be liable for any
sums of money above the cost of the rental charge.
rented motorcycles are
covered by european breakdown assistance. In the case of a mechanical
failure during the rental period you will get a refund for the time the motorcycle was not useable. CIMT or associates are not,
under any circumstance, liable for any additional expense. If the
technical issue due to a fault in the motorcycle takes longer than 48 hours to
solve, we shall, depending on availability, subsitute the faulty motorcycle with
a replacement bike. This is only possible within the Italian territory. There
are no free of charge replacement bikes for crashed motorcycles. If a breakdown
occurs you will immediately inform our head office and follow instructions until the problem has been solved.
Failure to do so will result in a breach of contract
and you will not be able to claim the rental refund for the
loss of use of the
motorcycle. In no circumstance, unless
agreed with the rental station, you are entitled to abandon your rented
motorcycle. Penalty for abandoning the rented bike without CIMT's consent
will cost 2000€. .
7b. CIMT is an Italian rental company and will offer the best assistance
within the Italian territory. As per Italian law, rental motorbikes in Italy are
allowed to travel with copies of the registration and insurance documents. Under
no circumstance shall CIMT supply original papers. You are free to exit the
Italian borders, but you must understand that you may not have the necessary
documents with you, especially if you leave the EU and Switzerland.
7c. Our breakdown assistance is european. However, in the event of a
breakdown outside of Italy, where the bike cannot be repaired in time, even if
in warranty, and the bike needs to be retrieved by us, the transportation costs
up until the Italian border will be entirely at the cost of the client.
Pick up and drop off can be
made in different rental stations for selected models. In some specific cases, for a price to be agreed, CIMT and associates will deliver
and collect the rental vehicle directly at your hotel or other
You must make an appointment

in the agreed times and dates please advice the rental station as soon as
10. Riding a
motorcycle can be dangerous CIMT and associates cannot be held liable for any
harm or injuries occurred during the use of rental motorcycles.
For any driving offence incurred by clients during their rental, CIMT will be
notified by the police and will inform them about who was driving and their
personal details. You will then be
contacted directly by the Italian authorities. For the admin work involved in
this CIMT will charge the clients 25 euro per ticket. In some cases the police
will charge CIMT directly. In this case, CIMT will send you copies of the ticket
and ask you to pay us instead.
