Employee bike benefit is a way to offer your employees a cost effective and risk-free way to get a bicycle that they can use for any type of riding. Read more about the bike benefit.
A benefit bike is a normal bicycle or e-bike that an entitled employee acquires through a bike benefit leasing contract. Everything you need to know about benefit bikes.

Super that you want to offer the bike benefit to your employees! Start by sending your basic company information here. We use the information to get a credit decision and speed up the process. After this, we will contact you to set up your bike benefit contract and guideline.
You cannot get a benefit bike before your employer has launched the benefit into use. Don't let this stop you: tell your employer about Vapaus.
Vapaus comes in three service plans. Our Starter plan is completely free for your organisation. Pro and Enterprise plans add a monthly office fee (€12 and €16 respectively) for each active benefit bike contract. See Pricing and plans.
The employee bike benefit is a cost effective way to get even a more expensive bike, like an e-bike, without a large one-time investment. Also, thanks to the tax benefit, you can save up to 30% compared to purchasing the bicycle on your own. Vapaus also has broad cancellation coverage, which means that you are not married to the bike in case you do not vibe with it after all, or if your employment situation changes. Calculate your savings.
Your employer must first have launched the bike benefit into use. If this is the case, you can get a Vapaus benefit bike from a local partner bike shop, selected online stores, or from our Vapaus Precycled bike shop. Regardless of where you want to get the bicycle from, the first step is to create an account in the Vapaus app. See instructions.
You can save up to 30% on the retail (cash) price of the bike, with average savings ranging from 15-25%. Total savings depend on your salary and tax rate as well as the price of your Vapaus bike package (bicycle + equipment) and your bike benefit service plan. The savings come form the tax benefit, meaning that they will realise in a lower tax rate (in case you update it) or in tax returns.
No. You can use your Vapaus benefit bike for anything you like, including leisure rides, hobbies, and commuting, but you do not need to ride one meter to or from your workplace unless you want to.

The right bike for everyone

Vapaus benefit bike users can get their bicycle from a long list of Vapaus partner bike shops and brands. From e-bikes to mountain, gravel, and commuter bikes, there’s a perfect benefit bike for everyone.
