Easiest way to get a bike in Rotterdam: Swapfiets

THE way to get around in Rotterdam is using a bicycle. But I really needed a bicycle and didn’t want to invest a few hundred euros in something without doing my research. Enter Swapfiets. For a fixed monthly fee (15 euro a month), you get a pretty great bicycle delivered to your door. Even better is that if your bicycle breaks in any way, they will come and fix it for you (provided you stay within the bounds of your city of rental). Also, if it gets stolen, they will replace it for 40 euro (also a sweet deal I’m told since bicycles get stolen on the regular). So far, I’ve been extremely pleased with the service: my bicycle light ran out of batteries and they immediately replaced them. So if you need a good bicycle quickly without too much investment, definitely check out Swapfiets.
