Euro Bike Rentals

Newbie Here,
Looking to see if anyone has rented a ride from Allround Vermietung in Frankfurt.
We are planning 2 weeks of Self guided riding in Austria, Italy and Germany. Have done the guided tours before but prefer getting lost on our own agenda.

Looks like they have a variety of bikes, rates looked ok (I only checked 1200gs). I wasn't sure if cases were extra.

Thanks Jim,
I have done the search and agree that everything looks good. Bikes and rates as well as insurance etc.
I am ready to pull the trigger and book but wanted to know if anyone has used them previously.
Just for the increased confidence of sending cash overseas. Our trip will be in Sept/14 so stability in the company also helps.

Regards,
MotoEd

The ONLY way to go

One thought, unless you're planning to tour in the Frankfurt area, you might consider renting in Munchen - getting to and from the fun parts eats a day of Autobahn each way.

Rented from Allroundrent in Munchen a few years ago. No problems, very easy to get to & the hard cases were a little extra.

I rented a Honda Duville from them in October and was very satisfied. That bike comes with side cases and top case otherwise you rent the luggage. They also offer more included miles per day than most. The Duville had good wind protection and I was impressed with the handling in the mountains and it was cheap.

Munich would be a better place to rent if heading for The Alps and Dolomites.

We are about 3 hours South east if you are looking for a port of call or a helping hand at any time.

Thanks for the info. We will be adjusting our plans to land in Munich. It actually works out better and those extra days will be better spent riding the good stuff. We wanted to wrap up our tour with Oktoberfest in Munich anyway so this is even better. Bikes booked and flights are next. Appreciate the offer Ali.

Cheers all
