  • To rent a bike it is necessary to show a valid document (passport or identity card).
  • For the rental of our more expensive models the customer is required to provide their credit card details, purely by way of guarantee, and authorize TopBike Rental & Tours to charge to this card costs due to any damage, loss or theft of the bicycle and/or of the equipment rented, according to the wholesale price and inclusive of labour costs. Credit card details by way of guarantee are not required if the customer opts for a guarantee against theft (see below).
  • To rent our "basic" alloy models, we do not require credit card details.
  • It is possible to insure yourself against theft. The guarantee against theft optional limits the liability of the customer to an amount considerably lower than the wholesale price of the bike. In order to exercise the limitation of liability in the event of theft or loss of the bicycle the customer is required to produce a theft report obtained from the police or Carabinieri.
