This coverage applies to the motorcycle only and no other insurance coverages are included or implied. If you are in need of additional coverage (i.e. trip interruption or cancellation, personal accident, health, medical, hospitalization, disability, life, personal property and baggage, or items related to your passenger) it is suggested that you obtain these in advance as these are not included with the rental.
Motorcycle Use:
Motorcycle use is authorized in all countries of Europe. Use is not allowed in North Africa. If you wish to drive in to Eastern Europe countries, the deductible per Bike is $2000.00. The motorcycle will be rented with a full tank and will be the responsibility of the rider to return it full. During motorcycle use the operator has to check oil and water level. Each calendar day will be considered a rental day.

Rental Rates:
The rates are guaranteed in U.S. Dollars once the reservation deposit is received. All fees will be due and payable in traveler’s checks or cash or Credit Card at the time the rental period begins.
Driver Responsibility:
Because of the unique traffic regulations in Europe, traffic infractions are not always instantly known by the driver. It is understood that the driver will operate within the rules, laws, and regulations of the European country that he/she is driving in. In the event the operator receives a violation on the motorcycle (moving, parking, etc.) he/she will be responsible for these. If these are immediately known, then the driver must pay the fine and notify KNOPF Tours upon return of the bike and provide written proof of payment. There are some instances that a driver does not realize that a violation has occurred, usually from the common use of instant-on, photo radar, in which case, payment will be expected from the rider upon receipt of the fine via mail. In case of an accident we will keep the deposit until the accident is cleared.
