VIETNAMRIDER® recommends that you take out adequate travel, health and accident insurance as well as Trip Cancellation Insurance. State mandatory liability insurance is included in our motorcycle papers but you are not insured for any Damage or Theft and Accident if you do the Guided Self-Drive Tours and don’t have a valid Vietnamese Driving License.
