What is Donkey Republic all about?

Hi there! We’re a Copenhagen-based company that’s building a global self-service, 24/7 bike rental service powered by the Donkey Republic App.

We developed an app that allows you to find and unlock a bike with your phone in many cities around the world. That means that it’s now easier than ever to rent a bike wherever, whenever and saddle up in just a few clicks. No internet connection is required, no docking stations, no cash, no ID cards or deposits, no rental shop staff or opening hours. Just absolute freedom to explore the world on two wheels!

So far we’ve helped over 25,000 riders to take the world on two wheels.

Okay, so how do I rent a bike?

That’s super easy! Install our app on your mobile phone, find the nearest rental bike available and book it in the app. You can rent up to 5 bikes in one booking and rent from 2 hours up to multiple weeks. Then get to the bike and unlock it – with another click in the app.

How much does it cost to rent a bike?

Our bike rental prices vary for different countries, cities, and locations in the city. To see the average bike rental price in each city, go here. Get the exact price for your preferred pickup location and rental time in the Donkey Republic App.

How do I unlock the bike?

You find your rental bike at the pickup location by matching the bike ID in the app to the ID on the bike’s handlebar information panel. In the rental screen in the Donkey Republic App press Unlock. You will need to have Bluetooth and location turned on in your phone, but no internet connection is required. The app will connect with the lock and unlock automatically.

The system was amazing, such a simple concept but it works brilliantly. Only bluetooth needed to operate the locks. We were able to extend the rental with a few clicks on the app too. I'd highly recommend!
