More than an employee bike benefit

Reward your organisation with a desired employee benefit and a healthier workforce. Vapaus makes benefit bikes flexible for HR and employees.

What is the employee bike benefit? How does it work?

Employee bike benefit is like any other employee benefit (but also unlike any other benefit)
It allows employees to get a nice bicycle and use it for any kind of cycling they want
To offer the benefit for employees, you need to have an active contract with a service provider like Vapaus
You can offer the benefit as part of employees’ gross salary, or partly or fully on top of it
Thanks to the tax benefit, employees can save up to 30% on the retail price of the bicycle
For employers like you, it is a superb way to support employees’ wellbeing and advance sustainability targets

We have 1 500+ customer organisations, big and small, and from all imaginable industries.

When your employee leaves, their contract with Vapaus ends. They can choose to either buy their bike or return it to Vapaus. In some cases, they can also transfer their benefit bike contract either to a colleague within your company or to their new employer. Whatever happens, we'll make sure the bicycle doesn't become a burden for you. Contact support

Woo-hoo! 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.
Yes you can. The only thing to note is that if you offer the bike benefit together with a commuter ticket benefit, their maximum combined taxable value is 3 400€ per year (per employee). The maximum taxable value of the bike benefit (1 200€ / year) means that the commuter ticket benefit's taxable value is limited to the remaining 2 200 € / year. The bike benefit does not affect any other benefits, like lunch, culture, or car benefit.
