The Hirer agrees to return the Vehicle to the designated parking position (as indicated by the Tribecar system) unless instructed by the Tribecar.

The Hirer hereby acknowledges and agrees to pay Tribecar the relevant fees amounting to S$50.00 as and when the 24-hour breakdown and emergency service is found to have been deployed by the Hirer for the aforesaid scenarios which are not deemed to constitute a breakdown of the Vehicle.

Motorcycles have significantly shorter service mileage than cars and are typically between 1,000km to 2,000 km per service. It is not uncommon to come near or cross the servicing mileage during a Hirer's booking. The Hirer agrees to bring the motorcycle to Tribecar's authorised workshops before the motorcycle exceeds 200 km in mileage from the servicing mileage as indicated in your booking email or on the sticker found under the motorcycle seat. The servicing takes about 15 minutes and the Hirer will be reimbursed with half a day of rental to the Hirer's booking. The Hirer may be liable for repair costs if he or she fail to service the bike in time and there is damage to the motorcycle.
The authorised workshops for motorcycle servicing are:
