Already Europe's largest motorcycle rental platform, BMW Motorrad's 'Rent A Ride' service is set to expand operations to more countries in 2021.
Imagine yourself planning a long weekend ride with your buddies. Though you have a motorcycle of your own, you feel a purpose-built ADV would be a more practical & comfortable option. But where to get one just for a day or two? Well, if you happen to live in Europe (or Thailand), then BMW Motorrad has you covered with its 'Rent A Ride' service.
Those looking for rental motorcycles or those who simply wish to take a test ride can log go on to the Rent A Ride website and with just a few clicks, can rent out a virtually new motorcycle of their choice. Customers unfamiliar with any model also have the option of having the motorcycle explained to them on-site by a certified BMW Motorrad partner. There's even a provision of renting out riding gear too.
Currently, Rent A Ride services are available in six European countries (Germany, Finland, France, Italy, Norway & Austria) and Thailand via 89 participating rental partners. By the end of 2021, BMW Motorrad aims to take this number up to 100 rental partners in 12 countries. For this year, BMW Motorrad aims to set up more Rent A Ride outlets in the USA and four other European markets (the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland & Romania).
