“Agreement” means all terms and conditions found in this form. “You” or “your” means the person identified as the renter, any person signing this Agreement, any Authorised Rider and any person or organisation to whom charges are billed by us at its or the renter’s direction.

All persons referred to as “you” or “your” are jointly and severally bound by this Agreement. “We”, “our”, the Company or “us” means the independent business named in this Agreement. “Authorised Rider” means the renter and any additional rider listed by us on this Agreement, provided that each such person has a valid motorcycle rider’s license and is at least 18 or 25 years of age (depending on the motorcycle, as per described under each tour) unless the age restriction is changed elsewhere in this Agreement.

“Motorcycle” means the motorcycle identified in this Agreement and any motorcycle we substitute for it, and all its tires, tools, accessories, equipment, keys and Motorcycle documents. “Physical Damage” means damage to, or loss of, the Motorcycle caused by collision or upset; it does not include comprehensive damage, such as damage to, or loss of, the Motorcycle due to theft, vandalism, act of nature, riot or civil disturbance, hail, flood or fire.

“Loss of use” means the loss of our ability to use the Motorcycle for any purpose due to damage to it during this rental. Loss of use is calculated by multiplying the number of days from the date the Motorcycle is damaged until it is repaired, times the daily rental rate.

2. RENTAL, INDEMNITY AND WARRANTIES

This is a contract for the rental of the Motorcycle. We may repossess the Motorcycle at your expense without notice to you, if the Motorcycle is abandoned or used in violation of law or this Agreement.

You agree to indemnify us, defend us and hold us harmless from all claims, liability, costs and attorney fees we incur resulting from, or arising out of, this rental and your use of the Motorcycle. We make no warranties, express, implied or apparent, regarding the Motorcycle, no warranty of merchantability and no warranty that the Motorcycle is fit for a particular purpose.

3. CONDITION AND RETURN OF MOTORCYCLE

You must return the Motorcycle to our rental office or other location we specify, on the date and time specified in this agreement, and in the same condition that you received it, except for ordinary wear.

If the Motorcycle is returned after closing hours, you remain responsible for the loss of, and any damage to, the Motorcycle until we inspect it upon our next opening for business. Service to the Motorcycle or replacement of parts or accessories during the rental must have our prior approval. You must check and maintain all fluid levels.

4. RESPONSIBILITY FOR MOTORCYCLE DAMAGE OR LOSS; REPORTING TO POLICE AND US (ACCIDENTS)

You are responsible for all damage to the Motorcycle, including the cost of repair, or the actual retail value of the Motorcycle on the date of the loss if the Motorcycle is not repairable or if we elect not to repair it if you are at fault as indicated by the police report.

You are responsible for theft of the Motorcycle, loss of use, diminished value of the Motorcycle caused by damage to it or repair of it, and a reasonable charge to cover our administrative expenses connected with any damage claim, if you are at fault as indicated by the police report.

All accidents must be immediately reported to the appropriate police authorities and the necessary police reports obtained.

Furthermore, all accidents involving the vehicle must also be reported to Dr Moto Adventure (DRMA) in writing immediately.

You agree to pay the first $500 USD towards any damage if you are at fault. You are responsible for all damages or loss you cause to others in areas not covered by our insurance. We will notify you of this in writing on the email address provided by you.

In case of a total loss arising from your fault, if/as indicated in the police report, you are liable to pay the market value of the motorcycle to Dr Moto Adventure within 7 days of the accident occurring.

Failure to pay the motorcycle’s market value in case of a total loss arising out of your fault as per the police report may result in us filing legal proceedings against you.

8. REFUNDABLE SECURITY DEPOSIT

You will pay us a refundable deposit of $1,500 before taking possession of the motorcycle. This deposit will not be applied towards the actual rental fee but will be held to cover the expenses for events mentioned.

 

9. YOUR PROPERTY

You release us, our agents and employees from all claims for loss of, or damage to, your personal property or that of any other person, that we received, handled or stored, or that was left or carried in or on the Motorcycle or in any service Motorcycle or in our offices, whether or not the loss or damage was caused by our negligence or was otherwise our responsibility.

The acts listed in clause 6, above, are prohibited uses of the Motorcycle and breaches of this Agreement. You waive all recourse against us for any criminal reports or prosecutions that we take against you that arise out of your breach of this Agreement.

 

11. MODIFICATIONS

No term of this Agreement can be waived or modified unless in writing and approved by our company. If you wish to extend the rental period, you must return the Motorcycle to our rental office for inspection and a written amendment by us of the due-in date. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between you and the Company. All prior representations and agreements between you and the Company regarding this rental are void.

  • If you have a breakdown due to your fault in Haiti or any neighbouring country and need to be towed back to the Dominican Republic by us directly or via an affiliate, you will have to forfeit your security deposit. If there is damage to the motorcycle and you need to be towed back, you will have to pay for the damage repair and the towing charges which will be more than your security deposit.

 

13. MONEY OWED

  • Your security deposit will be used to pay any damage repair charges, fines, toll or all of the above.

  • If the amount of fines, damage repair charges, fines, toll, or all of the above exceed your deposit amount, you will commit to paying them as soon as notified by us.

  • Failure to pay any due amount which is owed to us by you will result in a complaint being filed with the local authorities to help us claim the amount from you.

 

14. MISCELLANEOUS

A waiver by the Company of any breach of this Agreement is not a waiver of any additional breach or waiver of the performance of your obligations under this Agreement. Our acceptance of payment from you or our failure, refusal or neglect to exercise any of our rights under this Agreement does not constitute a waiver of any other provision of this Agreement. Unless prohibited by law, you release us from any liability for consequential, special or punitive damages in connection with this rental or the reservation of a Motorcycle. If any provision of this Agreement is deemed void or unenforceable, the remaining provisions are valid and enforceable.
