The rental price consists of a booking fee of CHF 5 and an hourly rate of CHF 3.50 for Carvelos or CHF 5.00 for Smargos. The hourly rate is waived from 10 pm to 8 am. With a carvelo subscription or TCS membership, the prices can be halved.
At selected locations we offer Carvelos that can be rented for a period of up to 30 days. The best thing about it: the longer you use the Carvelo, the more discount we give you on the rental prices. For a rental of 8 days you will get a 5% discount, from then on for each additional day we add one percent to the discount, up to 30 days maximum. Only available at some places: you can find a list of host locations where long-term rentals are available here. Ask us in cas of problem.
With the carvelo subscription you pay only half price for each carvelo booking (not applicable to Smargos). The subscription costs CHF 90 per year and is therefore worthwhile from 5 daily or 3 weekend uses. You can purchase the subscription after registering via your user profile.
SUBSCRIPTION FOR CORPORATIONS OR ORGANIZATIONS (not applicable to Smargos)
Available for corporate or organizational clients, see this page for more information. The subscription is valid for one year. Upgrading to the next higher subscription is possible at any time, fees already paid are taken into account pro rata temporis. The price of the subscription depends on the number of employees.
All TCS members benefit from a 50% discount on carvelo (not applicable to Smargos). Simply enter your TCS number in your user profile. The TCS membership is also worthwhile for carvelo users because TCS offers its members comprehensive breakdown assistance for their own bike or e-bike as well as for rented Carvelos!
