Rental Terms and Conditions
Last Updated June 3, 2022
These Terms and Conditions (“Terms and Conditions”), together with the applicable Electric Bike Rental Agreement (collectively, the “Agreement”), contain the terms and conditions for your electric bicycle rental. The Agreement is between the bicycle renter (“Renter”, “Customer” “you” or “your”) and Tyler Adventures at Zion, LLC (the “Company” “we” or “us”). By signing the Electric Bike Rental Agreement or otherwise renting or using any electric bikes or other equipment owned by the Company (collectively, the “Equipment”), you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions. The Company reserves the right to update these Terms and Conditions at any time.
From the time identified in the Agreement until the Equipment is returned, Customer agrees to pay the hourly or daily rates set forth in the Agreement. The minimum charge is two (2) hours. Customer agrees to pay all charges for miscellaneous service and all sales, use, rental and excise taxes including any applicable tax-related surcharges. Customer also agrees to pay a reasonable fee for cleaning the Equipment if the Equipment is returned with excessive stains, dirt or debris attributable to Customer’s use.
If your plans change and you notify us more than forty-eight (48) hours before your reservation, no problem! Your reservation can be rescheduled, subject to availability, or we can issue you a full refund.
Reservations made within 24 hours of a scheduled event are final and cannot be changed. In addition, any no-shows or non-cancelled rentals will be charged for the full reservation amount (2 hour minimum).
If your reservation is cancelled less than 48 hours, but more than 24 hours before your reservation, the cancellation fee is $35 plus 10% of the total fees for daily reservations.
If your reservation is cancelled less than 24 hours before your reservation, the cancellation fee is half the price of the reservation total.
Please note that all cancellations must be received via email or phone and confirmed by the Company via email to be valid or the full reservation amount will be charged.
CREDIT CARD RESERVE
Customer understands that Customer’s credit card will be pre-authorized for the full amount (to be used against the final bill) equal to the estimated total charge for the Equipment rental at the rates indicated on the website and confirmed over the phone or via email, plus a damage security deposit. The Company only accepts payment by credit card. Customer authorizes the Company to charge Customer’s credit card any amount due from Customer as a result of the Equipment rental.
CHARGES FOR LOSS AND/OR DAMAGE TO EQUIPMENT
Customer understands that all charges are not final and are subject to audit after inspection of the returned Equipment. Customer specifically agrees and authorizes the Company to make any charges by credit card if there is any damage beyond normal wear and tear. If credit card funds are not available to cover the full amount due, Customer specifically agrees to pay charges within 24 hours by cash or other guaranteed funds.
Customer agrees to return the Equipment to the Company in the same condition as received, except for ordinary wear and tear (which does not include flat tires), on the due date and time and at the location specified by the Company. Customer agrees to return the Equipment sooner if so demanded by the Company. Customer understands that there may be rate, fee or special charges if Customer returns the Equipment at a different time, date or location than indicated in the Agreement.
PROHIBITED USE OF THE EQUIPMENT
No unauthorized trail use! Use allowed on marked bicycle trails and bicycle lanes on roads only. Customer will not use or permit the Equipment to be used for hire, to be operated in a test, race or contest, or to be ridden on any unpaved roads, in dirt or through water, or in any location that operation would be illegal or a nuisance to others. Customer will not use or permit the Equipment to be used for an illegal purpose. A violation of this paragraph automatically terminates the rental and makes Customer liable to the Company for any penalties, fines, forfeitures, liens, recovery and storage costs, and any related legal expenses associated with a violation of this paragraph.
DAMAGE TO EQUIPMENT
Customer shall pay the Company for all losses and/or damages to the Equipment, including theft or vandalism, regardless of fault. If the Equipment is damaged, Customer agrees to pay the reasonable costs of repair and diminution in value. If the Equipment is damaged beyond reasonable repair (as determined by the sole discretion of the Company) Customer shall be responsible for the retail fair market value less any salvage value, if applicable. In addition, Customer shall also be responsible for the loss of use, administrative fees, as determined by the Company or specified by law, plus any towing, pick-up and/or storage charges. In the event of theft, Customer shall be responsible for paying loss of use at the daily rate for each 24 hours Customer delays in paying the total loss.

Customer authorizes the Company to collect from a responsible third party any applicable loss and/or damage. In the event the Company obtains a recovery from a third party after Customer has paid the Company for all or part of any loss, the Company will refund to Customer any excess above the amount of the loss plus administrative fees and other incurred collection costs and attorneys’ fees.
ACCIDENTS – THIRD PARTY CLAIMS
