If you downgrade, you will be reimbursed the difference in the rental price. This represents the maximum liability of Eurodriver.
I'm not that high, which motorcycle model do you recommend?
You should have your feet firmly on the ground to be able to stand and maneuver safely. (experienced motorcyclists can also cope if they only make contact with the tips on the ground)
A lighter motorcycle is a good backup, in that case.

Yamaha N Max 125: 760mm
BMW F700GS with seat depth 790mm
Royal Enfield Himalyan 411: 800mm (with not as wide feels deeper)

So that this does not happen and last-minute inconveniences arise, please choose your rental motorcycle carefully.
If necessary, please tell us your height in the contact form or in Step 3 of the reservation process as accurately as possible so that we can avoid surprises on the day of delivery.

Everyone adapts their driving style and other road users take it into account! You have to adapt your driving style and skills to the driving and road conditions of Crete and explore Crete individually.
If you drive at your own safe pace and plan daily stages that correspond to your experience, you can also enjoy Crete by motorbike as a beginner or returnee.

Provided the road signs are available, it is a good guide to Crete.

Thanks to the good mobile network and Google Maps, all destinations and even the smallest gravel roads are displayed.
