Welcome at Rent A Bike Amsterdam! The cheapest bike rental in Amsterdam.
Would you like to rent a good solid bike for a low price? Then that is possible with us. In the Netherlands, bicycles are a household name, so we can imagine that you would like to rent a bicycle when you are in Amsterdam. Maybe you are not from here or you are on holiday, then you can easily rent a bike from us.
We offer bicycles that are affordable and robust. A bicycle is actually a means of transport that is very easy to use and that saves you a lot of time compared to the car or public transport. In Amsterdam there are many narrow alleys and canals, which makes it easier to cycle through Amsterdam and explore the city. With us there is the possibility to reserve the bicycles in advance or to rent them directly from us.
The location of our office in Amsterdam is very easily accessible, so you don’t have to travel far to pick up or return your bike.
What to watch out for
Cycling in the Netherlands is very different from cycling abroad. Because it is so common here in the Netherlands, cars and people know to watch out for their bicycles, and even give them right of way. There are roads, cycle paths and sidewalks where each group (cars, bicycles, pedestrians) stays in its own area, but you still have to be careful.
Cyclists do not wear helmets, so indicate when you are going to make a turn and keep a close eye on traffic lights. Stay on the indicated path. If there is a “bicycle path” sign or a picture of a bicycle on the path, you are in the right place. If you are in a pedestrian zone, get off your bike and walk up the path.
The same goes for when you need to find out where you are or confirm your route. Get off your bike and get out of traffic before burying your face in the map. In Amsterdam, the police will give you a ticket for breaking the traffic rules, so be aware of where you are driving. Most cycling cues are universal, so just extend your arm in the direction you’re turning and you’re good to go.
Before crossing tram tracks, make sure not only that you look both ways, but also that your wheels are perpendicular to the tracks so that your tire doesn’t get stuck in a track.
Always lock your bike! Bicycles are constantly stolen, so make sure you lock them in a designated place. Rental bicycles are delivered to us with a lock that is permanently attached.
