Barcelona is a really bicycle friendly city. You can find bike lanes in almost all neighbourhoods for people who enjoy an alternative method of transportation. If you’d like to get in on this ever-growing, eco friendly trend, we recommend the great deals at Budget Bikes! When Budget Bikes opened in 2006 they were one of the first bike rental locations in Barcelona. Since then, they have been working hard to offer people quality biking services. In addition to quality, long term, bike rentals, Budget Bikes offers several different bike tours around the city – like the Gaudi tour, the highlights tour and even a tapas tour!

How it works:

bikesWhen renting a bike you will have to pay a €100 deposit (or €200 for an electric bike), which will be returned when the bike is returned to the shop. During this time period you will have access to their repair service. Prices are listed below:

Standard Bikes:

  • 2 hours: 6€
  • 4 hours: 10€
  • 8 hours: 13€
  • 24 hours: 16€
  • 2nd day: 10€
  • Extra days: 8€

Bicycle Theft Insurance: 3€ per day

Electric Bikes:

  • 2 hours: 12€
  • 4 hours: 20€

  • 2nd day: 20€

They have limited amounts of e-bikes available so I recommend to contact them in advance.
