When you travel, rent a bike, surfboard, stand up paddle board or snow gear from Spinlister – which is often described as ‘Airbnb for bikes’. This is because the two companies work in very similar ways. Just as you can often find rental accommodation on Airbnb that represents better value for money than regular hotels, Spinlister too offers you a less expensive option.
Very few of us want to fly to a vacation or business trip venue and take our bikes or surfboards along with us and plan to rent outdoor equipment when we get to our destination. But in many places – particularly popular destinations – prices can be prohibitive. That’s where the Spinlister app or website comes in.
Just like Airbnb, you can search for your location and find all the available bikes (etc.) in that area. You can rent by the hour, the day or the week. You’ll be renting your bike directly from the owner and as they don’t have the overheads that burden rental businesses, the prices are considerably cheaper.
When you search for your desired location, you’ll see all the listings available and they will also be shown on a map so that you can choose a location that’s convenient for you. Note that some owners will also deliver your bike to you.
Similarly to Airbnb, you’ll be able to leave a review of your experiences with the person you rented from to help others in the future.
