Cancellation Policy

Single speed / 3 speed and 7 speed bikes: reservation can be cancelled without charge up to 48 hours before the agreed rental period. We charge a 2 day’s rental for cancellations received after this time, or in the case of no show on the agreed day of collection.

Hybrid bikes: cancellations made after 168 hours before agreed day of rental or in case of no show on that day will be billed for a full week rent.

For cancellations of bikes ordered with delivery we have a different policy.

Theft insurance conditions

If you take out theft insurance (note: this is no insurance that covers damage or liability) when you rent a bicycle, you pay an insurance premium per bicycle, per day. You must lock the bicycle as instructed.
If a bicycle is lost or stolen, you must report the loss to the police in order to obtain a report and provide us with a copy of the report.
You will lose your € 50 deposit and will be charged the cost of replacement of the chain lock.
If you cannot produce the keys, the insurance is invalid. You will have to pay the replacement (day-) value of the bicycle + chain lock.
If the stolen bicycle is retrieved, we can refund the amount you have paid, minus any retrieval costs. We are only allowed to reclaim a retrieved bike if we can show a copy of the report of theft.
