Date Change & Refund Policy

· No refund will be given if notice is not given and acknowledged at least 24 hours before.

· No refund will be given for transaction values of less than $29.

· Otherwise a 50% penalty will occur due to 1. administration costs and 2. your booking stopped other individuals from making a booking leading to loss of gross revenue.

· Change of date will be granted once and will incur a fee representing an equalisation to match the BookMe pricing for the specified day. No refund will be given after this event.

Upgrade options:

Extra Day: $20

Want to extend the fun? Then do for this flat low cost fee (for Bookme customers). This fee applies to all overnight rentals and comes with a charger and extra secondary bike lock so you can make the most of your bike rental. If you want more than two days, we will honour this pricing in shop and speak to us there at the time.

Large and Removable Storage Bag (Pannier): $3

This large 20L (Jerry / Fuel Can size) pannier bag is great for putting all your items in and can even serve as a convenient shoulder / hand bag

Puncture & Rescue insurance: $5

Punctures are never nice and can really ruin a fun day while seeing you sitting on the side of the road. While ultimately punctures the responsibility of the person that ran over the offending item, this insurance policy gives peace of mind knowing that someone will come and rescue you, cover this expense and even drop you off at an agreed location (e.g. your hotel) if need be.

Child Seat: $15

While no explanation is needed, note well that this will only allow for children of up to 20-25kg. If your child is heavier than this and or you have multiple children please call Cairns Electric Bikes directly (+61 7 4051 4470) to discuss your various options prior to booking.

Family Bike: $30

This bike is a special Nihola Family and is great for children not big enough to ride but too large to fit a child seat. Also useful for taking along grand parents or a spouse who doesn’t cycle and has no intent on the subject!

School holiday fun

My son and I had a great day out on the electric bikes during his school holidays. It was good fun we rode right out to Goomboora park stopped at Stratford for a lovely brunch and enjoyed not having to peddle uphill. He enjoyed picking up a bit of speed with the electrics. The throttle can be a little tricky as we almost had an “ incident” when my son turned the throttle to max as soon as we arrived to pick up the bikes . Almost took off over the top of the car parked beside the curb. A very lucky save for the vehicle. So be aware when you have kids. The owner of electric bikes company did disconnect the throttle cord on my sons bike for safety . The bike still works with the electrics kicking in depending on the number you select. Other than that we had no issues. We made use of bookme.com to get a good discount. And I thoroughly recommend this to anyone who would like to try the electric bikes.

Electric Bliss

We hire 2 electric bikes off Andrew and his crew and set of to Crystal Carcade Falls. The bikes were unbelievable fast smooth and reliable. We hardly had to pedal which gave us so much enjoyment taking in the scenery. Thanks Andrew for a truly unforgettable day. Paul and Jane

Recommended to experience scenery close to city

Self guided tour is worth experiencing beautiful scenery close to Cairns city and beyond. Unfortunately the bike hire staff were disorganised and blasé. It took 40 minutes until we received our bikes ready to go. Would hire elsewhere next time.
