Upon rental of the bicycles and the accessories an official ID with photo has to be presented. You need to show an I. D. (Identity Card, Passport, Driving License) and leave your name and I. D. number. We will not keep your I.D., only your deposit.

Upon request/order of more than 2 bicycles or delivery to a hotel a prepayment of at least 50% of the rental fee has to be made to our bank account in Germany or Hungary. Upon receiving the bicycles another EUR 100, - per bicycle has to be deposited (Security Deposit).

Starting an individual bike tour and riding the bicycle is made at one’s own risk. Evident damages on the bicycles have to be reported upon taking possession of the bicycles.

Borrower is entirely liable (even in case of passing the bicycle on to others) for damages due to violent impacts or improper operation (even over the value of the deposit given upon borrowing), though not for causes of wear and tear.

Unfortunately bicycles cannot be insured for theft. It is recommended to make a report to the police by the borrower in case of theft since this way the borrower will be charged the participation (retained amount) of the value of the deposit (EUR 100, -). In such case, your refund will (to pay) to the real value of the bike.

The minimal rental-time is one day. For rental times over one day, invoicing is done per started days.

By groups with more than 10 participants advisable a skilled tour guide (for example as a representative of our company) can cycle with the group but has to be paid for during the whole rental time.

We recommend to lock the bicycles when not used during the day and to always put them to a closed place for the night-time. Attention: Please always LOCK your bike to something stable like a traffic sign and be careful with the keys. Try to lock bikes together!
