Srinagar Motorcycle Rental Rates 2020 – 2021

by Vargis.Khan

Continuing from previous article where I discussed rates for renting a motorcycle in Ladakh; in this article I will list down Srinagar Motorcycle Rental Rates for the year 2020-21. If you were planning a bike ride to Ladakh this year but either do not own a bike; or live far away to bring your own bike from home; then renting a motorcycle from Srinagar city for the tip is a great option. Mention below is the per day cost that you will pay depending on the motorcycle you chose. Apart from the charges, I will also provide a few tips that you should keep in mind while taking a bike out on rent.

For renting a motorcycle in Srinagar, please contact Faisal at 09596 410 670. Give my reference and he will give you the best possible rate.

srinagar motorcycle rental rates

As a matter of fact, the daily rental in Leh and Srinagar city are almost the same. The only difference however is in terms of the motorcycles you will get. In Leh city, you can easily find bikes like Impulse, Vikrant and automatic bikes like Scooty and Activa. In Srinagar City however, these are not really that commonly available. Here Royal Enfield rules the market and the only other bike available majorly will be Bajaj Avenger.

Rent a Bike in Srinagar

Important thing to note here is that in Ladakh, there is a Ladakh Motorbike Rental Association that all rental agencies work with. The rates that association decides are standard that anyone will charge you in Leh. In Srinagar however, there is no association and every agency have their own bikes rates. These however are more or less the same; with only a difference of a couple hundred. This in fact is actually a good thing because there is no association that you got to worry about. You are free to negotiate a deal and chances of getting one in Srinagar are way high than in Ladakh.

Minimum rent period in Srinagar is one day. There is no half day rule applicable like in Ladakh. If you take a bike on rent, you take it for an entire day and pay the rent; irrespective of whether or not you will return it before end of the day.

Please note that if you are a foreign national, your local driving license issued in your respective country will not do; and you must hold an International driving license. Without it, no rental agency will hand you over their motorcycles. For some agencies, this international driving license will suffice but others may even ask for your passport as well.

If you are however an Indian citizen, all that you need to produce is your own permanent driving license.

Srinagar Motorcycle Rental Rates 2020 – 21

Mentioned below is a list of motorcycles that are currently available on rent in Srinagar; with their per day rental. As I mentioned, there is no standard rental association rule as such but all agencies will charge you around the amount I mentioned below.

  • Royal Enfield Himalayan
    Engine Size: 411CC
    Rental: Rs. 2000 per day
  • Royal Enfield
    Engine Size: 500CC
    Rental: Rs. 1,800 per day
  • Royal Enfield
    Engine Size: 350CC
    Rental: Rs. 1,500 per day
  • Bajaj Avenger
    Engine Size: 220CC
    Rental: Rs.1,300 per day
  • Automatic Bike / Scooty
    Rental: Rs. 800 per day
  • Other Bikes
    Engine Size: 150CC to 200CC
    Rental: Rs.1,000 per day approximately

Few things that you do need to keep in mind while renting the motorcycle are as mentioned below.

  • You will have to pay a security amount of Rs. 20,000 which will be refunded when you return the bike with no damage.
  • An additional Rs. 350 per day will be charged if you want to also rent the riding gear; including the carrier.
  • If you want to get an additional helmet for pillion rider, that will cost you an additional Rs. 50 to Rs. 100 per day.
  • Rain coats, chargers etc are not part of the riding gear and will be charged separately.
  • You must hold a valid permanent driving license to rent the motorcycle.
  • If a foreign national, you must have an international driving license.

Bullet on rent in Srinagar

As you can see from the list above, Royal Enfield is the hot favorite of both the rental agencies and customers alike. Depending on which model you chose, renting a Bullet in Srinagar will cost you between Rs. 1,500 to Rs. 2,000 per day. Royal Enfield Himalayan is the costliest of all the models.

Srinagar to Leh Bike Rental

I would definitely recommend renting an Enfield only for the trip. If you were riding solo, then its best that you go for a 350CC motorcycle. Renting a 500CC engine is just more power that you will not really need. If you were however with a pillion and all the luggage, I must in that case recommend renting a 500CC Bullet.

Depending on which bike you chose, your Srinagar to Leh Bike rental total will at least be between Rs. 1,300 to Rs. 2,000 per day. Considering that you will need at least 2 days to reach Leh and then at least 2 more days to return, you will be paying about Rs. 6,000 to Rs. 8,000 as rent for 4 days.

Where to Rent a Bike in Srinagar

From my own personal experience, preferred place to rent bike from would be Kashmir Travelogue.

Kashmir Travelogue- Bike & Motorcycle Rental Firm
Lal Chowk, Srinagar
http://kashmirtravelogue.com/
Phone: 09596 410 670

Rates that these guys will offer you would be hard to bear elsewhere in Srinagar. They are all highly professional but very humble team and will ensure that you get the best out of your trip; and a total worth of every penny spent. The riding gear that other agencies will charge you with for Rs. 350 per day, these guys will provide it for free. And their riding gear is quite comprehensive too; way bigger than all others. Take a look at the link below for a detailed review.

Are there additional charges if we rent the motorcycle at Srinagar and drop it off at Leh (as opposed to ridding back to Srinagar to drop it off)?
