Renting a motorbike in Cao Bang checklist
Sometimes it is better to pay a bit more for your bike so you feel safe and secure when driving, and you don’t spend half your journey fixing your motorbike. Feeling comfortable and safe on your bike is important, especially with the insanity of the traffic in Cao Bang.
- Check the profile on the tires, roads can be slippery.
- Are your head and back light working?
- Are the direction lights and break light working?
- Is your fuel meter working? You kinda want to know when you need to gas up again!
- Ask how often oil has been changed.
- Maybe most important: is your horn working?
- Are both breaks working properly, are they not too loose or too tight?
- Put the motorbike on a high standard to check if your back wheel does not move left and right.
- Do a test ride to see if you can get the motorbike in neutral (located between your 1 and 2 shift).
- See if the motorbike starts without its kickstart.
- Check to see if there are no oil stains on your engine, there should not be any oil leaking.
- Take a seat on your motorbike to see how the springs are, it should bounce back immediately (not yoyo).
- Check to see if the kickstart works, make sure to put your bike in neutral for this.
- Test all gears, which might mean you have to find a piece of road where you can get up to 70km/h, shifting gears should be easy. In its 4th gear a Honda Win should get up to 75km/h.
- Ride in all gears to make sure that the gears do not shift back to neutral (this would indicate a damaged gearbox).
- Check the chain and cogwheel of the bike for any damages.
What Are Cao Bang Motorbikes Rental Requirements?
It you want to rent a motorbike in Cao Bang, some rental companies ask for your passport while others don’t. We’ve noticed that shops located along the main touristy roads seem adamant about handing over your passport. It seems as though the smaller businesses on the less traveled side streets are more accepting to a passport photocopy or a cash deposit instead. To rent a motorbike in Cao Bang ,you need two things:
For motorbike rental, there are different procedures depending on the rental shop and the length of the rental. If you stay in a hotel and rent a motorbike from the hotel for a few days, the hotel will not require a deposit. If you rent directly from a rental shop.
You need to give your passport to the owner until you return the motorbike or deposit an amount of money (from 1.5 million VND to 3 million VND). Leaving a passport with a shop while you travel the whole country is not ideal, so an alternative can be suggested. Often rental shops will accept a different form of valid identification or even a copy of the passport.
In some cases, an additional requirement could be the number of your hotel room if you’re renting a scooter from the hotel.
Or sometimes a rental company in Cao Bang could ask for the hotel that you are staying in.
Regarding payments, you almost always pay in cash and upfront. Most motorcycle companies don’t ask to see proof of a driver’s license. You can drive away from their shop without toppling over or crashing into something or someone.

MOTORBIKE CAO BANG LOOP
The best way to explore the north-eastern province of Cao Bang is by motorbike. You could easily do a day trip to the Ban Gioc Waterfall, or Pac Bo. However, for a really memorable experience try to see more of the province.
One nice journey could be the so-called Cao Bang Loop, that covers the Pac Bo cave in the north, the Ban Gioc waterfall in the east, and then following the southern road back to Cao Bang. This trip can be done in 3 days, or more if you want to explore more of the side roads. However, I only cover the 3-day journey.
One slight challenge could get a motorbike in Cao Bang. I found one motorbike rental place opposite the Than Loan Hotel on Vuon Cam. You might need to ask someone to call the owner of the rental place. The reception of the hotel could be helpful. Check the bikes, as they vary in quality. Price was between 200.000 and 250.000 Dong, with a 10.000.000 Dong deposit. To be honest, I was not impressed with the bikes.
An alternative is Khách Sạn Bằng Giang hotel. The receptionist Ana helped to arrange a semi-automatic bike in good condition for 300.000 Dong, but only a 5.000.000 deposit required. I would recommend to try getting a motorbike here first.
