Hertz has launched a new electric bicycle offering in Spain following a successful launch in London earlier this year.

Hertz customers can now explore the provinces of Granada, Almería, Alicante, Valencia, Pontevedra, Álava, Barcelona and the islands of Mallorca and Formentera, with a choice of nine different Swiss Flyer electric bikes available from 24 euros a day.

Michel Taride, President of Hertz International, said, “We are very excited to introduce our electric bike offer to Spain following the successful London launch, enabling customers to explore tourist destinations not far from the sea and countryside in an exhilarating way. We are always committed to providing our customers with a range of mobility solutions. With the electric powered bikes, customers can cover even more ground than simply by touring on foot or using a traditional pedal bike.”

The sturdy Flyers are equipped with Lithium-ion batteries that support travel at up to 25 kilometers an hour, with a range of 85 kilometers. The eco-friendly bikes come with full training, a helmet and road safety vest to ensure customers feel at their safest when exploring tourist destinations in this unique way.

Daily rates for the Flyer electric bikes are 24 euros when booked at least 24 hours in advance, or 28 euros for booking on the day.

Electric bikes were introduced in London in April through a partnership between Hertz and Ultra Motors. The London electric bikes travel at a maximum speed of 15.5 mph and can be rented at a day rate of £20. As with the electric bikes in Spain, customers receive full training, a lock and helmet, as well as a copy of the AA Leisure Guide to London with suggested bike routes around the capital.
