The first 60 minutes of each rental are free of charge. If you rent a bike longer than 60 minutes you will be charged 0,50€ for each additional 30 minutes. The maximum daily rate for renting over a 24 hour timespan is 5,00€.

You can use a single account to rent up to four bikes at once. The aforementioned benefits will however only apply to the first bike. This means you will be charged at the standard rate for each additional bike.
