What is extended rental?

All subscriptions at Just Eat Cycles include an unlimited number of 60 minute trips. If you want to keep a bike for more than 60 minutes, you’ll have to enable extended rental. That lets you have the bike for up to 6 more hours, at a cost of £1 per 30 minute extension. This means that the maximum trip duration is 7 hours, with a maximum additional price of £12.

Toggle on and off

  • When buying a Just Eat Cycles subscription in the app or on the web, you’ll be offered the option to enable extended rental. That happens in the last step before you pay.
  • You may enable or disable the function under your account in the app or on the web.
  • Be aware that you cannot turn extended rental on or off while you have a bike on hire.


  • The payment card used when you bought your subscription will be charged for any extended rental periods.
  • Receipts for the payments can be found under your profile on www.edinburghcyclehire.com.
  • You can also change or remove your payment card there.
  • If you remove your payment card, extended rental will be disabled.


  • You will receive an SMS notifying you about 5 minutes before the 60 included minutes run out.
  • On the trips where you go over 60 minutes, you’ll get an SMS when the trip ends. There you’ll get a summary of how much your card will be charged.
  • You will also get an SMS if you return your bike too late and don’t have extended rental enabled.

What happens if I return the bike too late?

  • If you return a bike too late, you’ll get a warning. This warning is visible in the app and when you log in to www.edinburghcyclehire.com
  • If you’re too late a second time, your account will be blocked.
  • If your account is blocked you will need to contact Just Eat Cycles on 0131 278 3000, confirm your payments details and enable extended rental before your account can be unblocked.
