Why hire a brompton?

We’re a little different and we like it that way. 

Made for hire

We’ve created a hire scheme that connects with your lifestyle in mind. Brompton hire is not confined to borough borders and city boundaries, in fact the only limitation is your imagination.

Our bikes are 24h hire as standard and you can keep it for up to 30 days because who wants to be clock watching spoiling their ride.

The bike folds perfectly allowing you to store it conveniently at home over night, pop it on a train or in the back of your car.

It’s easy to fold

You can transform your bike into a neatly folded, easily carried package within a few seconds. 

We do the maintenance

All the perks and none of the hassle. We maintain all the bikes ourself at the factory in London.

Great value

Our bikes are accessibly priced so everyone can enjoy the benefits of a Brompton.

Available across the UK

Over 50 docks nationwide let’s you hire and return at your convenience. 

Amazing journeys

We have been continually refining the design of our bikes for over 30 years and our expert teams still make and assemble each bike by hand in our London factory, making sure they provide years of use and enjoyment.

Using a Brompton

Don’t be put off by the fold. Once you get the hang of it you’ll be unfolding in seconds to head off exploring.

Our top tip – Remember that dropping the seat post locks the folded bike together and also allows you to use the saddle as a grip for carrying your Brompton with you.
