Sport Ryder Rentals will make every effort to provide the motorcycle as reserved for the customer; however, we reserve the right to substitute the motorcycle confirmed due to unforeseen circumstances. This includes, but is not limited to, delay in manufacture fleet delivery, mechanical failure, collision damage and theft.
Vehicle Damage Deposit and Insurance:
State minimum mandatory liability insurance ( the legal requirements to ride on the street ) is included in the daily rental fee. For a small additional daily charge, the renter may also choose to purchase the Loss Damage Waiver to protect the renter from excess collision damage losses. If the rider is covered by their own insurance, a letter is required from their insurance company to prove coverage extends to our rental motorcycle. Please call for more details. Sport Ryder Rentals does not offer any type of medical insurance. It is the responsibility of the renter to provide his or her own medical insurance coverage.
A fully refundable Vehicle Damage Deposit (VDD) will be taken at the time of rental and will be credited back to the customer's account if the vehicle is returned undamaged. The VDD is secured by authorization against a major credit, but not charged unless the vehicle is returned damaged. The authorization amount is $2500 ( the authorization for the Slingshot and the Side-by-sides is $3000 ). The rider is responsible for the retail repair of damage, plus other fees such as recovery, etc. Please see the rental contract for more details. If this cost is less than the amount of the VDD, then the remainder is refunded to the rider.The VDD does not limit the liability of the renter. The renter maintains responsibility for the full amount of the costs of replacement of the motorcycle unless the Loss Damage Waiver is purchased.
All rental rates are based on a 24 hour period. Late fees are assessed thereafter at the rate of $35 per hour ( $45 per hour for the Slingshot ). Any rental returned 4 hours late is charged for an extra day.
Standard rental rates include 300 miles per day ( 200 miles per day for the Slingshot ). Additional mileage costs just $.35 per mile ( $.45 per mile for the Slingshot ).
