The beauty of an electric bike (or e-bike) is that you cover the distance to work much more quickly. A good racing bike or mountain bike allows you to glide up and down hills with ease when you're out cycling. But, of course, decent bikes come with a serious price tag. However, KBC's bicycle loan is a great solution if you're set on buying your dream bike.

How our bike loan works
If you want to finance your new purchase, it might be more attractive for you to take out an instalment loan, which avoids you having to dip into your savings. KBC offers a customised loan for your new bicycle.
You can take out this bicycle loan to buy an e-bike, cargo bike, mountain bike, racing bike, folding bike, etc. You can borrow from as little as 500 euros. Your repayments are monthly, spread over at least one year.
For example: You have your eye on an e-bike costing 1 800 euros. However, you don't need to borrow quite that much. You decide to take out a bicycle loan of 1 500 euros and pay it off over 24 months. In that case, you'll pay a little over 63 euros each month.

Get paid to cycle to work
Do you commute on your bike? If so, you can recoup what you've spent on your brand-new bicycle in no time, thanks to a tax-free bicycle allowance*.
How does it work? It's simple. Your employer pays you 0.23 euros for every kilometre you cycle. And that soon mounts up. For instance, cycling 20 kilometres to and from work on your electric bike or regular bicycle results in an allowance of 4.60 euros per day. If you do that 220 days a year, you'll end up pocketing 1 012 euros. If you took out a bicycle loan of 1 800 euros, your cycling will generate that amount in less than two years.
*Bicycle allowances are perks. Employers can decide whether or not to grant them and can also specify the amount.
