Booking of the bikes
The bikes are booked online, by means of the software BikeRentalManager ("BRM"), through the links available in the website www.monta-in-bike.ch. In order to use BRM one must be at least 18 years old, sign up using an e-mail address and give any other information requested by BRM. In order to complete the booking one must accept the present RTC and insert the credit card information. The payment is made through the payment provider Stripe. MiB sends, through a protected and encrypted connection, the Credit Card information to Stripe. MiB does not save clients' Credit Card information. MiB keeps the booking deposit shown next to the label "To pay now". Furthermore, the client authorizes MiB to withdraw, through Stripe, the final balance including any other additional cost (see below). MiB will deliver the bikes booked by the Client to the agreed location and at the agreed time in good condition. The booking is confirmed upon receipt of the confirmation email.
The client picks up the bikes at the agreed location and at the agreed time made in the booking, with an identity document. The client receives the bikes in good condition. Any complaints regarding the condition of the bikes must be submitted in writing at the pick up location. Upon pick up, MiB withdraws the balance of the rental price from the credit card of the client, using Stripe.
If MiB is not able to deliver the bikes according to the terms agreed in the booking confirmation, the rental will be cancelled and MiB will refund the booking deposit. No other charge is due from MiB.
If the client asks for the rental cancellation at least 24 hours before the pick-up time, the rental is cancelled, but the booking deposit will not be refunded. If the client asks for the cancellation later than 24 hours from the pick-up time, or if he/she does not arrive at the pick-up location at the time specified in the confirmation email, the 25% of the full rental price is due to MiB and the difference between the full rental price and the booking deposit will be charged.
MiB cannot guarantee that a booking can be modified. However, if the client asks MiB to modify a booking at least 24 hours before the pick-up time, MiB will try to satisfy the customer's request, subject to the availability of the bikes and the staff.
