Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to many of the questions we are frequently asked about Cycling Rentals bike hire services.
Where do Cycling Rentals Operate ?
Cycling Rentals offer bike rentals all over mainland Spain and Portugal. We can deliver to any accommodation where there is an all day reception service. We cannot deliver to hostels, B&B's and rental properties where no-one is at hand to receive or unable to store the bicycles for you.
Is Delivery and Collection Included ?
Delivery and collection is generally included in our rental fees, when stated, but charges may vary based on quantity of bikes and delivery or collection location.
How do I Rent a Bicycle ?
It couldn't be easier to hire a bike from Cycling Rentals. Simply give us your dates, bike preference and departure and return hotels - we'll handle the rest.
How are Bikes Delivered ?
To be able to send bikes to your hotel in Spain or Portugal our bikes are delivered boxed, fully assembled directly to your accommodation. The only thing you have to do is attach the pedals (we supply a pedal wrench). We also send you links to our YouTube page with "how to" assembly videos.
Can Cycling Rentals collect bikes from a different location to delivery ?
Absolutely! It's no problem to have a bike delivered in one location and collected from a different location. For example we could deliver bikes in Seville and collect them from Granada.
Why Rent a Bike ?
Renting a Bicycle is much easier than bringing your own bike; you don't have to worry about carrying a flight case around with you or paying overweight on flights or risk damaging your own bike.

What happens if I have a mechanical problem ?
Cycling Rentals hire bicycles are professionally maintained and checked before every bike rental. We can provide you with a list of partner and friendly local bike shops you use during your bike journey.

You can also opt for additional insurance to cover theft or crash damages.
Who do I contact for assistance on the road ?
