How many bicycles do I need to purchase?
Swapfiets for Business is available from a single bike up. Our company pool- and hotel accounts can hold a maximum of 10 bikes per location. Employee bikes do not have a limit.
What is the minimum contract duration for Swapfiets for Business?
You can cancel your Employee bicycles anytime, here just one month cancelation period applies. Very handy if someone suddenly leaves. Company and Hotel bicycles can be canceled anytime after an initial period of 3 months, here the one month cancelation term also applies.
Is Swapfiets for Business also possible as a day / week rental?
No, unfortunately that’s not possible, even if you pay for the minimum contract duration. Swapfiets is a bicycle subscription, not a bicycle rental company.
What do I do if a bicycle is broken?
Then call, mail or WhatsApp the Swapdesk and we will come to you within one day to repair your bike or “swap" it for a working bike. For an Employee bike, employees can make an appointment directly via the Swapfiets-app. You can also visit the Swapfiets-store in your city.
What happens if a bicycle is stolen?
Then we’ll provide a new bicycle within one day and together we will report the theft. The company or employee will need to pay a ‘theft’ fee. That’s € 60 for the Deluxe7 model and € 220 for the Power 7, if the bike was double locked. For more information, please refer to our terms and conditions.
Why are hotel bicycles more expensive?
Because these bicycles are used by hotel guests, more service and maintenance is required. On top of that you'll also be able to rent out the bikes for profit.
Can I receive two keys per bicycle?
Unfortunately that is not possible. Has someone lost a key? Then we’ll bring you spare key within 24 hours.
How can I best arrange Swapfiets for Business for tax purposes?
When the employer provides a Swapfiets for the employee, this will not be seen as a extra benefit for the employee, as long as this Swapfiets is used for traveling to work. This means the employee will be exempt of paying any contribution out of their wage. Both empolyee and employer will also be exempt of paying taxes or RSZ-contributions, for both private and professional use. When providing these bikes for their employees, monthly subscription-costs as well as additional costs will be 100% deductible for the employer. On top of all these benefits, the employee can still receive mileage of up to 0.24 cents per kilometer traveled.

Are there any additional costs?
Generally there are no additional costs, however based on the size and the duration of the contract, we reserve the right to charge transportation costs.
