We have different options available for payment so you can choose the best option for your rides in Brighton:

Option 1: Pay As You Ride

This gives you full flexibility without committing to a pass.

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

e-Bikes: £1 to unlock, plus 16p per minute.

This option is best for a single ride. You pay the unlocking fee as a base charge, and 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.

Option 2: Minute Bundle

100 minutes: £15

Pedal bikes: Free unlock, 1 minute for every 2 minutes ridden automatically deducted from your minute balance.

e-Bikes: Free unlock, minutes automatically deducted from your minute balance.

This option is best for semi-regular riders. You buy a bundle of 100 minutes for £15 before you ride and we deduct your riding time from your balance. You will not pay an unlock fee.

And best of all - if you use a pedal bike you get double the minutes, e.g. you go on a 10mins journey but only 5mins will be deducted from your balance!

The minute bundle is valid for 12 months.

Example: You ride an e-bike for 15 mins, and end your journey in a designated Beryl Bay. You do not pay an unlocking fee, but 15 minutes will be deducted from your balance at the value of £2.25.

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. 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 bike correctly 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 bikes 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.
