To hire a motorbike on Crete you need to pay attention to the terms and conditions. For Motorbike rentals you will always need a credit card and you also will have to give a guarantee between 400 to 1000 Euros.
Be aware that riding a bike on Crete is not the same as in your country. The asphalt is very slippery and the rules of driving seem to be not really european!

Scooters and Quads (ATVs) are nice to go around in the village but I don´t recommend them for trips over the island. Too many accidents happen and as it is hot most people do not wear the safty equipment like helmet and proper jackets. In every village or town are scooter and Quat rental Companies.
