Rental bike service - rental bikes from AugustusTours
Whether touring bike or e-bike: we have the ideal companions for your cycling tour
Our rental bike service
We provide you with a solid and well-maintained touring bike that has been designed for rental and fulfils the requirements of a multi-day cycle tour.
Our rental bikes with 28-inch tyres have puncture-proof tyres, a chain guard and a pannier rack. Bright lights (usually hub dynamo), a clearly audible bell and functioning brakes for the front and rear wheels are also part of the equipment. You tend to sit upright. The handlebars are slightly curved and have ergonomic grips. A comfortable saddle is a matter of course.
Our rental bikes are ready for you at your accommodation on the day of arrival. Our hire price includes delivery to the starting hotel and collection from the destination hotel. Simply ask at reception and you will receive the bike keys and accessories. This means you are flexible in terms of time and can do your test ride at your leisure.

Helmets are not compulsory in Germany and many neighbouring countries. However, some exceptions must be expected. For our cycle tours, this applies to the following countries:
Austria: Helmets are compulsory for children and young people under the age of 12 - not for adults.
Slovakia: Helmets are compulsory for cyclists outside built-up areas.
Czech Republic: Children and young people under the age of 18 must wear a helmet.
More safety through visibility! In Italy and Hungary, cyclists must wear reflective clothing or high-visibility waistcoats in poor visibility conditions - and in some places generally at night.
