Bike rentals is a rapidly growing market in India and it shows no sign of slowing down. Wheelstreet, India’s first bike rental platform based on an aggregator mode, is a pioneer in this market place and is constantly innovating to make sure that its customers are provided the most hassle-free, convenient and affordable bike rental experience. After introducing features such as unlimited kilometres, variable rental durations and easy online booking which takes just 5 minutes, the next step by Wheelstreet is too make bike renting even more affordable than it already is by introducing hourly bike rentals.
Having your own vehicle is far better than having to commute by public transport or autos and cabs. Earlier, when you wanted your own vehicle for the purpose of commuting or travelling to somewhere within the city, you had to rent a bike for the full 24 hours. This means that even though you spend a maximum of 3-4 hours actually riding the bike, you end up paying for the full day. We at Wheelstreet realised this problem and to combat it, we have now introduced an hourly renting scheme.
So how useful is it exactly? Well let’s say that you have to go to the bank or RTO or any other place and it’s going to take you around 2-3 hours to get the work done. Normally you would end up taking an auto or cab or bus all of which have their own problems of being infrequent, too expensive or too crowded. Renting a two-wheeler for a whole day doesn’t make a lot of sense either. This is where renting a bike on an hourly basis makes a lot of sense. You can get scooters on rent for as little as Rs 10 per hour! That’s lesser than a BMTC bus ticket and you can certainly cover much larger distances as we don’t have any restrictions on the kilometres you can travel. And if you want a proper geared bike instead of a scooter, we even have bikes like the Royal Enfield Classic, KTM Duke, Bajaj Pulsar and more on rent starting at just Rs 21 per hour.
There are also a lot of bike enthusiasts and experienced riders you want to try their hand at riding a premium bike or a super bike. Here’s some good news for them as well: Wheelstreet is now offering bikes like the Hayabusa, Kawasaki Ninja 650R and the Harley-Davidson Iron 883, Street 750 and SuperLow on an hourly basis. This makes renting high-end bikes such as these much more affordable than you could’ve ever imagined. Check out the entire rate list for hourly bike rentals in Delhi and Bangalore:
As you can understand, renting out bikes on an hourly basis carries a certain amount of risk for the vendors and it becomes very difficult to provide a zero-deposit scheme in such a scenario. However, Wheelstreet has ensured that the refundable deposit is as low as possible to ensure maximum affordability for our customers.
So are you more likely to rent a bike from Wheelstreet now that they’re available at lower, hourly rates? Let us know in the comments below. Happy Riding!
