Pay for your bike hire on debit or credit card. We'll put a temporary hold payment on your card for the cost of the bike for the duration of your rental period using SagePay secure payment.

Don't worry, no money is taken from your account and the hold payment will be released once the bike is returned, minus the demo and shipping cost.

What is the delivery and return process?

Your bike is fully prepared by our Sonder Technicians. All you'll need to do is remove the packaging, attach the handlebars and the pedals (allen key required) then you're good to roll.

We'll arrange for our courier to pick the bike up from you on a pre-arranged date - usually the day after your demo has ended. Someone will need to be available to pass the bike over to the courier at the pre-agreed address from 8am until 6pm.
