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.

Membership pricing

We have two very simple membership options.

Our occasional membership is for those that want to commute once or twice a week, or a one off adventure. If you plan to use the bike more regularly then our frequent membership may suit better. It has a reduced daily hire rate.

If you want to use the hire service as a thorough test ride. Any hire fees (outside of the membership fee) is redeemable against the purchase of your very own Brompton - up to £150 for a regular bike and £250 for Electric.

Using a Brompton

It’s so simple to unfold, and a reason to hire first is to understand how it works! You can find step-by-step instructions on how to fold and unfold on the dock.

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