Extend contract

You can also choose to extend the rental period.

  • To extend your rental agreement, make a personal visit to Kattenberg 2.
  • If you can’t make it yourself, it is possible for a family member (related in first or second degree) to act on your behalf. You can request the necessary documents for this by mail, where you also clearly have to indicate why it isn’t possible to pass by yourself.
  • Your bicycle will get a complete check-up and if needed repairs. This can be done in the central rental location. Brake pads, outer belts, lights and chain are replaced free of charge. This applies only to normal wear & tear and applies only to the bicycle repair site at Kattenberg 2. Any other repair costs will be charged.
  • If the bicycle is considered to be in good condition (again), this will be entered into the rental system. Only then can the lease contract be extended.
