What sort of a person hands over their passport to a motorcycle hire company

This is why I'm in this job, and you're not.

 

This argument is saved for 'Thats why I'm CEO and you're not'... it doesn't have the same impact in winning a dispute when you are a hotel busboy... 

 

It could be that you are in your job because you didn't work hard enough at school....  :whistling:

 

------------

 

 

I'd like to know what hotel this is.... 

 

His [NiLiss'] point is valid.. you need a passport and for good reason (immigration)... but the manner in which he deliver's his message is not one conducive to 'customer service'...

 

I wonder how he handles any other 'customer related' issues which may crop up and irritate him..

My passport contains no immigration details whatsoever. That is no Visa type, no extension, no entry stamp and no TM6 arrival card.

 

There are many other foreigners here with the same situation. I guess we won't be staying at your hotel, huh? 

If you passport does not contain any of the date, then you are here illegally .  phone call to tourist police will have you arrested and hotel paid 10 000 reward for handing over an illegal

Haven't read every post but :

 

10 years ago went to Chiang Mai Iwith my wife and wanted to hire a car. Nine out of ten places demanded our passports as security. I pointed out this was illegal. Every place pulled open an unlocked and unguarded drawer full of foreign passports saying....no big deal...everybody else does.

 

Eventually found a place that was willing to take a photocopy.

 

Couldn't understand why so many tourists were happy to hand over their hard to replace ID. This isn't the Costa del Sol ?

Permanent Residents can register to use the Auto-Channel electronic gates so no stamps on either departure or entry. Also no TM6 departure card filled out or retained.

 

Few hotel receptionists would understand that and I can't be bothered explaining it so I never present my passport to a hotel in Thailand. I am never refused a room either.

All true, try to explain it to hotel staff, (also many bank staff), and they have no idea what your talking about, and most have never heard of "PR", and why would they.

 

Only a couple of times it's been a problem, but if needed I show my PR book, now they're faced with a new world and registration quickly proceeds.

Here you go again. You don't need to be a Thai citizen to have a 13 digit Thai ID number instead of a passport number on a driving licence.

I am a tough guy, and what exactly is your point?

 

Is it your smart way of saying that you would not be arrested if you did not produce PR book?

 

Or just trolling for the sake of it?

Well, hate to break it to you, but having 13 digit Thai number on a pink card does not make you less of a foreigner nor does wipe out the requirement to register you with immigration.

 

Keep on trolling, entertaining.

PR Book? Why would I produce a PR Book? No one carries that around nor are they required to.

 

Face it. You don't know what you're talking about. I would advise you to read more and post less.

Again BS, if you are pulled over by the police and your passport does not have any stamps or visas you would be detained at the very least.

 

Keep on posting utter bs😂

Again Back on Subject, if you are pulled over by the police and your body on bike does not have any passport (with the Renter) you would be detained at the very least

I do not think road check police care about passport. Immigration and Tourist police are the ones hunting foreigners. Saying that plenty of reports of police stopping people on the streets of BKK and asking to see passport and if failed to produce for whatever reason get detained or extorted.

 

I am also certain, from memory about 2-3 years ago, they made it illegal for rental places to take passport, like highly illegal with large fines for any shop doing it

Fat ones

Thin ones

Tall ones

Short ones

Old ones

Young ones

Female ones

Male ones

 

I'm sure there are many, many more.....perhaps the OP can add the ones I have missed?

We're at 80 percent plus occupancy, almost 200 rooms, on a nightly basis. We're very successful thanks and my employers find me to be a good fit.

 

Any international standard hotel in Thailand (read 4+ stars) will ask you for your passport and if you say they don't, you're lying.

 

 

 

Of course mate.

 

As a matter of fact, you're a smashing person.
