DO YOU NEED A BICYCLE?
YES, YOU DO!
In Groningen, the best way to get around in the city is on a bike. Whether you need to go to work, college, the supermarket or the city centre, cycling is the fastest, cheapest and most efficient way to get where you need to go.
You can, of course, buy a bike. New bikes start at €399 and a good second hand bike including locks at €199. However, damages, maintenance and flat tires can result in high and unexpected costs. Even worse, when your bike is stolen (which happens a lot), you will need to buy a new one without the guarantee that it will not be stolen again the next day…
In the last few years, we noticed that especially foreign students and expats want safe and well maintained bikes without any uncertainty regarding the costs. That’s why we developed a long term bicycle rental plan. This means that you can rent a bike anywhere from six months up to several years. The rental prices includes all maintenance, repairs and an insurance against theft. So, if you have a flat tire or any other damages, just bring the bike to the shop and it will be repaired at no charge. Is your bike stolen? Just bring back the keys and you can pick another one right away for free!
The rental prices start at €17 per month all-in, depending on the rental period. For an extra charge, you can even get a brand new or electrical bike!
