1. Re: Scooter Hire Khao Lak

There are lots of places in Khao Lak to hire a scooter, most of them not including any insurance for the scooter, you or damage or injury to 3rd parties in the average cost of about 200 baht per day. So you would need your own insurance or it to be included in your travel insurance.To ride a scooter legally in Thailand you must be qualified to do so in your home country. An International Driving Permit obtained before you leave is recommended and will confirm this. You will still be hired a scooter without this but it is your responsibility to comply with the law not the scooter hirer. If you haven't already please read this Travellers Article on Licence Requirements tripadvisor.com/Travel-g293915-c133830/Thail…

Accidents involving scooters is the highest proportion of fatalities on the roads in Thailand and Khao Lak sees its fair share of them.

Take care!

We've only been in Khao Lak since last Saturday (14th), and seen two scooter accidents, both involving tourists, with neither wearing helmets. It's a dangerous game!
