Prices for riding a Nextbike in New Zealand are calculated like this:
The prices are a combination of Special Passes (Auckland only), Rental Time and Return Location
This is bundled with your first ride and covers the first 30 mins of all rentals during the 1 week that the Special Pass is valid. Riders will only be charged for another Special Pass when a new ride is started in a new week.
If your Rental Time is longer than 5 hours, you will only be charged a max of $20 for the day.
Marked in app
If the bike is returned to a marked location you will only pay Rental Time. Also, if your city has a pink Flexzone, like Auckland, you can use a Return Location anywhere inside it for an additional $1.
Unmarked in app
If the bikes Return Location is not a marked location and outside the pink Flexzone you will be charged $20. You can rent the bike again after 2 mins and return it to a marked location to remove this charge.
