What others say

The stories of people that joined the ride.

The process went well and the bike dealer gave a clear explanation. I gave all necessary information and he entered everything into the platform. It could hardly have been done faster!
Stephan van Kervel
Platform works really well! Even on weekends you get all the information which allows you to handle everything with the bike dealer. Everything in the platform is also clear and you can always find your lease contract in it. So great platform!
Bianca van Duijn
There are no restrictions in choice of bikes and brands and that is very pleasant. A lot of accessories can be brought into the lease.
Folkwin Hulshof
Excellent service! The bike dealer came to my house with four bikes in a van so I could make a choice. I didn’t even had to go to the bike store.

How does leasing a bicycle work?

After your employer introduced Lease a Bike, you are free to choose your perfect match using the 'cafeteria plan'. In this format you can choose to exchange certain payment elements for their dream (lease) bike. For example: as part of a bonus, gross salary, 13th month.

Which bicycles can I choose from?

At Lease a Bike you can choose any bike from € 499 and up, with a free choice for all brands and types. From city to electric bike and mountain to racing bike: everything is possible, as long as it has two wheels. Even a speed pedelec is one of the options.

My bike has been stolen, what should I do?

The first step is ofcourse to report this to the police. It is important that you have two original keys and the frame number, this number also needs to be stated in the police report. Don’t know your frame number? You can find it via our platform. 

After this step, please go to the Lease a Bike bicycle shop and fill the theft form out with the bicycle dealer. You will receive a replacement bike for a maximum of 7 days. The bicycle dealer will arrange a new bicycle for you while your current contract continues. Fortunately, you have no deductible in case of theft.

Could you tell me more about taxes and social security connected to a lease bike?

If the bicycle is used "regularly" for commuting, the bicycle is exempt from taxes.

Could you tell me more about the gross/net benefit?

This depends on the model the company you work for will choose. What ever plan fits, you will always enjoy financial benefits even when the company fully facilitates and does not contribute to the lease price. You will pay the lease costs (including maintenance and insurance package) with your gross salary. Depending on your tax bracket, you will enjoy a tax advantage of at least 40% compared to a purchase. In our calculator you can calculate the costs and savings of a lease bicycle.

Am I the owner of the bicycle during the lease period?

No, the lease company is the owner of the bicycle during the entire lease period. After the end of the term (36 months) you will get an offer to take over the bike at a reasonable price. The moment you accept this offer, it will be yours completely.

What is a bicycle allowance?

With a lease bike in your near future you are already well on your way, but a bicycle allowance makes it complete! A company can pay a tax-free bicycle allowance up to 24 cent per cycled kilometer the employee travels commuting. There is no obligation to provide a bicycle allowance as this is separate from bicycle leasing.

Where can I get the lease bicycle?

At Lease a Bike you are able to choose from over 400 bicycle dealers throughout the Netherlands. This could be a local store around the corner, or a specialty store somewhere in the country. You are also free to contact all these bicycle dealers for maintenance. Would you like to know which bicycle dealers are near? Simply search via our dealer locator.

Is it possible to pay extra for a lease bike?

No, you have assigned a maximum amount from the employer. This is the budget from where you have to choose. If you want a more expensive bicycle, you can ask your employer to increase the budget.

What are the options with regard to insurance & maintenance?

All contracts concluded by Lease a Bike are standard with all-risk insurance (without franchise) and 24/7 roadside assistance. You could also add a service package of choice. For example:

  1. Basic - Covers up to € 100 in repairs and maintenance per year
  2. Standard - Covers up to € 150 in repairs and maintenance per year
  3. Premium - Covers all repairs and maintenance without limit
  • Speed ​​pedelec package - Covers up to € 300 in repairs and maintenance per year

There is some damage to my bike, what should I do?

If you have damage to your bike, go to your Lease a Bike dealer as soon as possible and complete the damage form together. If the bicycle dealer cannot repair the damage immediately, you are entitled to a replacement bicycle for a maximum of 7 days (note, only if you lease an e-bike or speed pedelec) . There is no deductible for damage.

What resources do I need for the platform?

Not much: a computer with an internet connection and Google Chrome or Firefox browser.

Is it possible to add some accessories to the bike?

Yes, that's possible and it is also included in the lease price. Anything that can be attached to a bicycle, will be leased with the bicycle. A helmet and lock can of course be leased. Clothing and bicycle computers are not allowed.

What happens when the lease contract of 36 months ends?

We make you an offer to take over the bicycle for +/- 15% of the value (new). The exact amount cannot be determined on forehand and depends on the final condition of the bicycle. If you are not interested in taking over the bicycle, we will take the bicycle back - free of charge.
