Cycling isn’t just fun and healthy, it can also save you money on fuel and public transport fares – even your gym membership! However, there’s no getting away from the fact that there is a bit of an initial outlay. Luckily, there are a few options available to help things along.
The Cycle To Work employee benefits program allows you to spread the cost of your new electric bike over 12 months. The payments are taken as a salary sacrifice before tax, which means you can save up to 39%! Here at Central eBikes, we’re partnered with the largest provider of Cycle To Work: Cyclescheme.
There’s no limit to the voucher amount you can apply for, and the process is very simple. Firstly, check that your employer is signed up with Cyclescheme – if they’re not, registration is free and only takes about 5 minutes. Then, contact us for a quotation on the bike and accessories you’d like to buy (give us a call or pop into the showroom if you’d like some advice), and apply for your voucher on the Cyclescheme website. Once you’ve received your eVoucher, get back in touch with us and we can process your order!
To find out more, give us a call or head to the Cyclescheme website for more information.
We also offer a simple interest-free finance option from Klarna, to split your e-bike purchase over 3 installments of over 12 months, depending on the order total. There’s no additional cost through fees or interest, and as Klarna only performs a soft credit check, there’s no impact on your credit rating. The first payment is taken at the time the order is placed, the second 30 days later, and the third at 60 days post-purchase. Please note though, that acceptance is not guaranteed and is based on a number of factors including the order value, previous spending history and stock availability.
