bike rental with drop-off point in vienna?

Hope someone can help!

Anyone knows of a rental outfit that allows drop-off in vienna ?

my only other alternative is to transport my bike with Ryanair - i dread to think what that is like. does anyone have any experience in doing that? need to take pedals off??

many many thanks for any suggestions

I have to say that this is extremely unlikely - how many London bike rentals would allow drop off in Liverpool (or Paris) ?

i am fairly surprised that you are allowed to take a bike out of the country

car hire companies really dont like you doing this,so well done louis the dog for finding this out

BTW romancitizen isnt self acclaimed. he was voted there by people he has helped

PS I hear ye with ryanair

they cant carry luggage without breaking it (mine anyway)

the thought of a nice push bike in their hands makes me shudder

all the best

thanks Tony, for your good wishes.

in fact, i've found two more companies, one operating out of Passau, and another in Vienna (allows drop off in budapest).

Cheers

Hi Loius,

Please provide the names of the other companies that you have found. This question pops up occasionally.....and in the summer months many times we locals will see sales ads for bikes......with a note that the bike will be ridden from XX city into Budapest and for sale on a specific day. This translates into quite a number of riders purchasing a bike and then selling it at their final city destination. I scored a Gary Fisher on the cheap through a deal like this!

Thanks for the help and enjoy the ride (and be safe as the local drivers can be quite aggressive and don't much like bicycles....
