International Hassles of Renting a Motorcycle

Apparently we talk about riding motorbikes in Southeast Asia quite a lot. As such, one of our long-time listeners wants to know more. Like are licenses required? How much does it cost to rent a motorbike in Thailand or other countries in SE Asia? And just what is required to rent one of these two-wheeled death traps? We have the answers. Listen in!   

Funny things you’ll hear in this episode of our comedy-travel-relationship advice podcast:

  • The relative safety is riding a motorbike in SE Asia when it’s been 30+ years since the last time you were on a bike

  • Which SE Asia nation is the absolute worst place to ride a motorcycle

  • Why Thailand ranks #2 for road fatalities, only behind Libya

  • Negotiating tactics for the police for when you get pulled over without a local license

  • The complete insanity of getting an International Drivers Permit in America. Because… really?

Ask Us Your Question!

In case you hadn’t noticed, season Four of This One Time is driven by listeners like you. You ask us a question and we’ll give you the answer in the form of a humorous (?) anecdote from our travels around the world. It’s sorta like Dear Abby meets Anthony Bourdain, only with less amazing food. Or swear words.
