Nextbike grants licences for Austria and New Zealand

The Nextbike licence system has begun the international expansion of its network. According to the company, it recently granted licences for both Austria and New Zealand. Its plans for 2008 are, among others, to enter the markets in the USA and Japan. It is also, it says, continuing to look for further master licensees for the whole of Europe.

Nextbike, which was founded in the German city of Leipzig in 2005, is a bicycle rental system which is financed through advertising. The bikes are rented out over the phone with a recorded voice informing the caller of the number code for the bike lock. A telephone call is also made to hand back the bike.

Nextbike partners receive a suitable number of bicycles which can also be used as advertising space. The licensees place the bikes at suitable locations around the town and they are also responsible for maintaining the bikes and changing the adverts. A business premises is not required. This year, the licence system has been launched in more than ten German cities.
