We have different options available for payment so you can choose the best option for your rides in Bournemouth, Poole, Christchurch and Dorset.

Option 1: Pay As You Ride

Pedal bikes: £1 to unlock, plus 8p per minute.

e-Bikes: £1.50 to unlock, plus 16p per minute.

e-Scooters: £1.50 to unlock, plus 20p per minute.

This option is best for a single ride. You pay the unlocking fee as a base charge, then the Price Per Minute is added to the base charge. At the end of the ride, we calculate how long you used the vehicle for and your card will be charged.

Example: You ride an e-Scooter for 15 minutes, and end the journey in a designated Beryl Bay. You pay a £1.50 unlocking fee, plus 15 mins at £0.20/min = £4.50.

Option 2: Minute Bundles

100 minutes: £6

200 minutes: £12

300 minutes: £18

400 minutes: £24

Minute bundles work out to cost 6p/ minute.

Pedal bikes: Free unlock, minutes automatically deducted from your minute balance.

e-Bikes: £1.50 to unlock, minutes automatically deducted from your minute balance.

e-Scooters: £1.50 to unlock, minutes automatically deducted from your minute balance.

This option is best for regular riders. You buy a bundle of minutes before you ride and we deduct your riding time from your balance.

Example: You ride an e-Bike for 15 mins, and end your journey in a designated Beryl Bay. You pay £1.50 unlocking fee as a base charge, plus 15 mins. You will be charged £1.50 to your bank account, and 15 minutes will be deducted from your balance at the value of £0.90.

Additional charges

Out-Of-Bay Fee: £5

You'll be charged the convenience fee if you end your ride outside of a designated parking bay (exemptions apply to Day Pass riders only).

The fee covers the operational cost incurred to return the bike to a bay so another user can ride.

Out-of-Zone Fee: £10

Beryl operates within large operating zones, agreed with the local authority. If you end your journey outside the red-outlined zone on your in-app map, you will be charged a fee.

Out-of-Zone Fee +24 hours: £80

If the bike is not brought back into the operating zone within 24 hours, an additional fee will be charged to cover the cost of recovering the bike.

Unlocked Vehicle Fee: £10
At the end of your ride, please make sure you lock your vehicle correctly (front and rear lock) to end your ride.

More information on how to lock your bike can be found here.

Please check in the app to make sure your vehicle has correctly registered as locked.

Unlocked and unattended vehicles are at higher risk of being stolen or vandalised, and they will not be available for other users to hire. You will be charged a flat fee, including your ride price.
