Deposits & Payments

We require a 40% deposit to reserve a bike. Deposits and payments can be made on-line. A deposit of 40% is required in order to secure your booking. Payment in full is required ten days before the start of the rental period. In the event that a booking is made thirty or fewer days prior to the start of the rental period, the full amount is due at the time of booking. If we do not receive a deposit within that time, the rental will be assumed to have been cancelled. Additionally, for rentals of all our bikes, a security deposit is required to be provided upon receipt of the bike. Deposit will apply (the amount will be pre-authorised on your credit card at the time of rental pickup, but not debited from your account). This amount will be blocked on your credit card at pick-up time. Deposit will be used for extra charges (e.g. damages, extra-day,etc.). Note that deposit release time can be up to 7 days depending on banks and countries .More information on deposit amounts can be found on our Rental Rates page.


Deposits are refundable provided that notice of cancellation is received 10 days prior to the start of the rental period. There is no refund of deposits for bookings made less than 10 days prior to the start of the rental period.
