Some motorbike rental need you to pay a deposit to insure against the theft of their motorcycles.

Word of advice
When you take over the motorbike, the vendor would most probably give you enough petrol to last you to the next "refueling point".

Please do not be like us, Chantal and I was stuck with a empty tank and I had to push the motorbike! Fortunately we found a small refueling stop.

Please wear a safety motorcycle helmet when you are riding.

Where to top up?
There are small huts along the small road leading to the highway. These small huts are refueling points as there is no petrol stations at Ao Nang beach area. A proper petrol station could only be found at Krabi town.
