Rent a Bike in Europe
Renting a bike has always been an inexpensive and “green” way to get around when you travel. This is especially true in cities in Europe, where “bike hire” schemes have become one of the most popular ways for vacationers and holiday makers to explore a city.
Because hiring or renting a bike is so flexible, travelers can design their own personal tour and see a city at their own pace. Because biking uses pedal power rather than fossil fuels, it’s also a great way to see the sites without contributing to air pollution or climate change. Plus, using a bike saves money on buses, taxes and rental cars.
Travel comparison site momondo, the sponsors of this post, have created this helpful round-up of five European cities that make it easy to rent or hire a bike, along with their top tips on how to make the most of their bike hire schemes. If you’ve rented a bike before while on vacation, or you regularly commute to work by bike, please share your experiences with us.
