  • 25/06/2015 - Paul Jeffries [United Kingdom]
  • i RECENTLY CAME TO BOURGS D′OSAINS FOR A THREE DAY CYCLING AND RENTED A BIKE THROUGH PROMPT. THE BIKE WAS A PRETTY DECENT CARBON FRAMED ONE WITH ULTEGRA AND GOOD VALUE. THE STAFF ON CHECK IN WERE VERY HELPFUL AND ALSO HELPED OUR PARTY WHEN OUR SUITCASE WITH HELMETS AND SHOES DIDNT ARRIVE AT THE AIRPORT WITH US! THE BIKE FELT GOOD AND GOT ME UP ALPE D′HUEZ AND THE CROIX DE FER AMONG OTHERS. THE ONLY SLIGHTLY SOUR NOTE WAS ONE OF OUR PARTY BEING CHARGED 40 EUROS FOR TWO VERY SMALL MARKS ON THE BIKE - YOU NEED TO MAKE YOUR tS&CS A BIT CLEARER BUT EVEN SO I THOUGHT THAT WAS A BIT HARSH. THE GUY WHO CHECKED US BACK IN WAS QUITE ABRUPT ALSO. HAVING SAID THAT, THE OVERALL EXPERIENCE WAS GOOD AND V GOOD VALUE. WE GOT SOME GOOD ADVICE ON ROUTES TO TAKE ALSO. CHEERS (DONT KNOW WHY I′M BEING FORCED TO WRITE IN CAPITALS!)

  • 21/11/2013 - Peter Bellchambers [Australia]
  • My friends and had a magnificent time riding in the Alps. I would recommend to anyone thinking of doing a cycling holiday to leave their bike at home and rent one from Prompt. It made travelling half way across the world exceptionally easy. Plus the hire bikes were perfect for long days in the mountains.


  • 12/11/2013 - Jim Davidson [Scotland.]
  • In August this year my son-in-law and myself hired two PROMPT bikes from yourselves. Our flight was delayed so we were running late. The young person in the shop was very helpful in getting our pedals and measurements adjusted even although it was getting close to closing time. The bikes performed very well with no problem. I would recommend your hire service to my friends in Inverness. Jim & Andy. Inverness.


  • 11/11/2013 - Shane McGlone [Australia]

  • 11/09/2013 - Terry Jay [Australia]
  • Completed all negotiations re time, pickup on the web. Bikes were in top condition with personal adjustments done willingly at time of pickup. Given handy local area tips from Theo [very helpful]. Survived our 2 week riding adventures in the Bourg d′Oisans area including all major climbs without a problem. Would hire again without hesitation.


  • 18/08/2013 - Tom McGibbon [Scotland]
  • I have done both the Marmotte tour and the Giro Tour last year. The support is first class and the company excellent. Phil supported all abilities to achieve the toughest climbs in the Tour De France from the fittest to the less fit - ie me. I am returning next year to do Paris Roubaix and would recommend 21 Bends to passionate cyclists of all abilities!
