A Super Quick Guide to Motorbike Hire in Hua Hin

If you’re only planning on staying around for a few seconds I’ve got all the key info you need to know before renting a scooter in Hua Hin. It goes like this…

The price to pay

In 2024 it will cost you 250 baht per day to rent a basic scooter in Hua Hin. That’s about $7 and is the average price from a reputable hire company. You also need to pay a deposit. This varies from shop to shop but usually ranges from 1000 to 5000 THB.

Where to go

The most popular place for Hua Hin scooter rental is called Hua Hin Motorcycles. I have two other stores to recommend, but it wouldn’t be ‘super-quick’ if I told you everything now.

Follow the rules

To legally ride a scooter in Hua Hin, and all over Thailand, you need an International Driving Permit (IDP). It’s what the local police will want to see if they pull you over. You can get one from your home country or if you’re already travelling you can get one emailed to you from the friendly guys at the International Drivers Association.

That’s your super quick guide. If you want a more detailed guide to Hua Hin scooter rental I suggest you keep scrolling.

Your Ultimate Guide to Hua Hin Scooter Rental

Thanks for sticking around. We’ll start with the best places to hire a scooter in Hua Hin and then look more at the (boring but important) rules and regulations you need to know before renting a motorbike in Thailand.

Best places to rent a scooter in Hua Hin

Here are my top three recommendations for where you should rent a scooter in Hua Hin. There are loads of options around town but I can personally vouch for these three.

Hua Hin Motorcycles – The Most Popular Option

We’ll start with the most popular scooter hire store in Hua Hin. Maybe it’s because Hua Hin Motorcycles are the only ones around with a decent website, maybe it’s because they have been around for years and have built up a loyal customer base or maybe it’s their clearly set prices and low deposit. Whatever it is, these guys are the most popular place for scooter hire in Hua Hin.

Many young folks aren’t fans of haggling, so having clear prices makes the whole transaction a much easier and less intimidating process. The prices in early 2024 are as follows: 

  • 110cc – 250 a day / 1,300 a week / 2,800 a month
  • 125cc – 300 a day / 1,500 a week / 3,500 a month 
  • Deposit 1000 THB

Helmets and phone holders are included in the price and Hua Hin Motorcycles also offer a pick-up and drop-off service in Hua Hin Central areas. 

As with most decent motorbike hire stores, the best way to arrange your hire is to contact them by WhatsApp and let them know what you’re after. 

WhatsApp: +66 95 350 65 58

Store Opening Times: Monday – Saturday 10:00 – 18:00

Address: 178/17 Soi 80, Hua Hin (100 m. up to the street, on the left side) from Petchkasem Road

Motorcycle Rental Hua Hin – Friendliest Service

This is another great place to rent a scooter in Hua Hin. In a world of super friendly service, it says something when one place stands out from the others, but that’s what you’ll get from Motorcycle Rental Hua Hin. The owner is so friendly, either that or she’s the best saleswoman I’ve ever encountered. 

Prices are likely to be a bit cheaper than at Huan Hin Motorcycles but not by much. Most of the decent bike hire stores all charge the same.

Send her a message on WhatsApp and see what she can do for you. 

Whatsapp: +66897161759

Address:8 Soi 9 23/130, Hua Hin District, Prachuap Khiri Khan 77110, Thailand

Kings Auto Scooter Rental – Coolest Bike Shop in Thailand

This is one of the coolest motorbike rental stores in Thailand, let alone in Hua Hin. William, the owner, has spent time and money decking out the store to make it stand out from their competition

Along with having the coolest shop, his bikes are also in great condition and are available at very competitive prices.

Send a message on WhatsApp or head to the store to check out what all the fuss is about.

WhatsApp: +66804599588

Opening times: 09:00 – 18:00

Address: 3, 6 Soi Bon Kai, Tambon Hua Hin, Hua Hin District, 77110, Thailand

The Rules to Get Riding

Now it’s time for the boring stuff. But these mundane rules could save you from getting fined, voiding your insurance and, you know, dying and stuff.

You need a licence

Don’t fall into the trap that just because the scooter rental companies don’t ask to see a licence means you don’t need one, because you do. 

You need an International Driving Permit (IDP) to ride a motorbike, scooter or moped in Thailand legally. It’s what the police will want to see if you are pulled over or are involved in an accident. Without one you’ll likely be fined and void your travel insurance policy. You checked the small print, didn’t you?

It’s really easy to get one too. You can get one from your home country before you leave. In the UK, head to the Post Office to buy one. If you’re already travelling check out the International Drivers Association, and you can use code ‘IDPSketchy10’ to get 10% off your permit.

It’s not only Thailand where you need an IDP, I’ll bet that every country you’re planning to visit requires one.

Don’t drink and drive

I won’t say much on this one. It’s just a gentle reminder that this is still as serious a crime in Thailand as it is back home. Just don’t do it. Use the bikes for daytime exploring and use those legs of yours for when it is time to hit the booze.

The Price of Scooter Rental in Hua Hin

It will cost around 250 THB per day to rent a scooter in Hua Hin. That’s for a basic 110cc bike. The more powerful the bike the higher the price. Weekly or monthly scooter rentals will get you a better price, you’ll probably need to haggle a bit to get the best price on this.

You’ll also need to pay a deposit. In Hua Hin, this is typically between 1000 – 3000 THB but again depends on the bike.

These prices are based on renting a scooter from a trustworthy and reputable store, like the ones I’ve recommended above. There are always cheaper and riskier options around. It just depends if you want to take a big risk just to save a few dollars. 

Is Hua Hin a Good Place to Rent a Scooter

If you’re an experienced rider then pretty much everywhere in Southeast Asia is a paradise on two wheels, but if you’re a total novice or just lacking in confidence some places are better than others.

In my experience, it’s definitely worth renting a scooter in Hua Hin. The town itself isn’t too busy or chaotic so even a confident beginner shouldn’t get too scared. But the main reason why hiring a motorbike in Hua Hin is a great idea is to explore the surrounding countryside. There are loads of landmarks, villages and endless winding roads to get lost on to keep you entertained. So yes, if in Hua Hin you should rent a motorbike.

There you have it, an ultimate guide to Hua Hin Scooter Rental. Have fun out there!

I’m not really a stickman, but it seems that I like portraying myself as one.

I’m an English guy who’s been travelling since 2017. I was never good at taking photos, sketching just seems to work better for me, and in my opinion, why do you want to see other people’s 4K videos and pictures of the world? Surely it’s better to see it for yourself. You can get in touch through the contact page or Instagram.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Happy travelling.
