Overcharging problems by Jet Ski operators will soon be ended with operators required to have insurance coverage for any damage to Jet Ski craft.
Mr. Ronakit Aekasingh, Deputy Mayor of Pattaya, has announced that insurance companies will make details available to concerned authorities regarding insurance policies now required to help resolve jet ski problems, including issues of jet ski damage.
The Deputy Mayor told the Pattaya Times newspaper of the progress being made in solving the Jet Ski problem. The newspaper was informed that Mr. Komsan Ekkachai, the Chonburi Governor, has implemented a plan to organize the boat and jet ski rentals in Pattaya beach, Jomtien beach and Koh Larn. Recently a committee was formed to prepare the details of the Jet Ski rental, to set beach zones and appoint a headman to monitor and control the Jet Ski operators in their own zone. Pattaya beach has been divided into six zones; Jomtien beach having five zones, and Koh Larn 13 zones. All the rental services will be of the same standard and no services will be allowed to operate after 18:00 hours.
Pol. Capt. Dr. Chalerm Yubamrung, Deputy Prime Minister, showed great concern about the organizing of Jet Ski rentals. He and the Governor of Chonburi reported on the progress of the operation and greatly appreciated that the operation was progressing within the scheduled time frame. The next step is the introduction of three insurance companies that will make insurance details readily available to any concerned party. However it was stressed that the Jet Ski operators must comply with the rules governing insurance due to the importance for Pattaya and the country in ensuring the happiness of its citizens and tourists. We should bear in mind that the proposed measures will be helpful in increasing government revenue from tourism to over 2 billion Baht.
