    Hourly Rates & Late Fees

    Hourly Rate

    All equipment rentals are changed on an hourly basis. Total charges will reflect the total duration of use. To determine a user's final charge, time will be rounded up to the next hour. As an example, if a family rents 3 bikes at $12.50 an hour, and utilizes these bikes for 2.5 hours, their total charge will be $112.50 before tax. 

    At the time of checkout, a reservation hold will be placed on the user's card. This amount will reflect the maximum late fee of the gear chosen. Upon return, the user will be refunded the difference between the maximum late fee and the total rental charge. 

    Max Late Fee

    Maximum late fees are imposed whenever rental equipment is brought back after published rental hours. A maximum late fee is calculated by multiplying the total number of items rented by their maximum late fee amount. As an example, if a family rents 3 bikes, and brings them back after published hours, their total late fee would be $450.00 before taxes.
