Price List - Individual Rentals
We have 6 categories of bikes, classified according to their performance, from city bikes to competitive racing bikes.
Extending your contract
The rate for the extension depends on the category of the bike, the number of months already rented and the number of additional months desired. Here are three examples:
You have rented a category 3 bike for 6 months and now you want to extend the contract for another 3 months. The amount to be paid is the difference between a 9 month rental and a 6 month rental + 15.- administrative costs: 145.- minus 115.- plus 15.- = 45.-.
You have rented a category 1 bike for 12 months and now you want to extend the contract for another 6 months. As shown in the table, each month beyond 12 months is charged 10.-. So the amount to pay is 6 times 10.- plus 15.- = 75.-.
You rented a category 3 bike for 2 months, then you extended it for 3 months and now you want to extend it again for another month. In total, that's 6 months of rental of which you have already paid 5. The difference between 5 and 6 months is 115 minus 105 = 10. Plus 15.00 administrative costs, that's 25.00.
