Does your shop offer bicycle rental? Have you considered offering bike hire?

BICILET Bike Rental believes that cycling should be simple and accessible - which means bike hire should be easy for  cyclist and shop alike. Not only do we want cyclists to have an easy way to find / book bikes when travelling, but we also want to help shops reach a much wider audience and grow their business. So that is why we have built BICILET Bike Rental - to make the life of both cyclist and bike shop significantly easier.

We understand the many challenges facing bike shops today, and appreciate that building a booking tool and marketing online is neither cheap nor easy. BICILET Bike Rental wants to help you address that, and give you a means to connect with the thousands of cyclists looking to hire bikes. A growing market, we think bike rental offers a fantastic opportunity to expand your business, and we want to help you access that.

The process of booking via our website is simple: once you have created a page, cyclists find you / your bikes, and submit a booking request (including bike requested, dates, height etc). You then have 48 hours to confirm that the booking is possible, and the final price you will charge, at which point the cyclist pays. There is also a messaging system for you to interact with the cyclist, and get any additional information you may need.

We are completely free to sign up and list with - and simply take a 15% commission on rentals. We hope you agree this is fair given the extensive marketing, the booking platform and secure payment system we provide.

As of January 2017, we have c.200 shops signed up to the network, across Europe. Over the coming weeks and months we will be building our network extensively - and want to make sure you are a part of that.

Signing up is simple: simply enter your contact details here, and then create your shop's page. This includes:

  • A description of your shop / the surrounding area - it's a great way to differentiate your proposition. Add pictures if you want!
  • Bike types available & pricing - give as much info as possible, to help the cyclist choose.
  • Accessories & pricing - Cyclists often need helmets / child-seats / pedals when travelling, and it's a great way to improve the rental value.
  • Collection / Delivery options - a very popular request from customers - make your policy clear in your shop description.
  • Opening hours - provide in your shop description to help customers plan their trip.Feb 2017 offer - we will create your page for you

Following the creation of your page, BICILET Bike Rental will review and approve the listing, and then cyclists across the world will be able to see your offer and book with you immediately.
