So, how do nextbike rentals work?

Before you can rent a bike, you’ll have to register your name, address, and phone number with nextbike. Once registered, going forward, you’ll be able to rent bikes using your phone number. Travelers can also download the nextbike app to their mobile phones to make renting even easier. If you live in, or travel to, Dubai a lot, you can also apply for a nextbike customer card, to make renting even more of a breeze!


Renters can use a bike for a variety of durations; from 30 minutes to 24 hours. Prices are broken down as follows:

  • 30 minutes – AED 15
  • 1 hour – AED 20
  • 2 hours – AED 25

Bikes can easily be returned to any rental station in the city – they do not have to be returned to the same station that the bike was taken from. However, be careful not to lose the bike! That’ll cost you a cool AED 1500.
