Tips for bike rental

Many people regard bikes especially electric ones as the most dangerous mode of transport. However, if used properly, bikes provide most fun to tourists. There is nothing that can be better than riding in beautiful scenery with the wind on your face and freedom to wherever you want to. You can also hire a bike almost every corner of the world today. Here are a few tips for bike rental that will ensure you enjoy your vacation.

Perhaps the most important thing to consider before renting bike from any company is the insurance cover. The last thing you want when on vacation is to be faced with huge hospital bills when someone crashes into your bike or it gets stolen. Most insurance policies cover all these so you don’t have to worry as you enjoy your vacation.

Bike rental fee is another factor that you cannot ignore. Different companies and even resorts usually charge differently for bike rentals. You need to compare quotes from at least three providers so that you know the average market price. This does not however mean that you should settle on the cheapest. Price should go hand in hand with condition of the bike as well as other services that the company offers. 

Type of the bicycle is another important factor. There are mainly two different types of bikes available for hire in most shops; the electric bike and the manual bike. Electric bikes are usually the easiest because they use motor. 

It goes without saying that you should always wear helmet while riding. Most bike rental companies will always include the price of helmet in the quote. So, you should be sure to ask for it before you ride off. Apart from helmet, you must also ensure that the bike is in good condition before you accept it.
