Does my bike have theft protection?
Yes. Our bikes are insured with comprehensive insurance. Your bike must be locked with a commercially available lock, but it does not have to be connected to anything, unless it is in a locked room, for the protection to be effective. The deductible is basically 0 €. In the event of theft, you will receive a new bike for the stolen one at the maximum price to which you are entitled under the leasing contract.
What to do in case of theft?
The theft of your leasing bike must first be reported to the police. Since you need the respective file number for the theft report, this step is mandatory. When reporting the theft, you must provide the frame number, which you can find in the Lease a Bike portal. You must also have both original keys in your possession.Once you have filed the theft report, go to one of our Lease a Bike stores and fill out the theft form. The specialty shop will order a new bike of the same type and quality for you, which will continue to run under your existing contract.
