Exploring The Benefits of a Rhoades Car Electric Bike Rental Fleet
Rhoades Cars have long been an extremely durable and reliable form of personal transportation and as the brand continues to grow at a rapid rate, there are some exciting benefits of having a rental (or tour) fleet in your city.  If you’ve traveled around to some of the most popular tourist cities, you’ve probably noticed the Segway tours, bicycle rentals, golf cart tours, bus tours, and trolley tours.  They’re fun and an alternative to having to learn and see parts of the city that you otherwise wouldn’t know about.  Rhoades Car quadricycles provide an exciting and healthy way to explore a new city and enjoy it with your friends and family (while also getting a good exercise, cause who doesn’t want that, right?).

Tourism Stats
Tourism throughout the world is surprisingly growing year over year despite travel concerns.  A recent article from the World Tourism Organization UNWTO explains:

Demand for international tourism remained robust in 2016 despite challenges. International tourist arrivals grew by 3.9% to reach a total of 1,235 million, according to the latest UNWTO World Tourism Barometer. Some 46 million more tourists (overnight visitors) travelled internationally last year compared to 2015.

2016 was the seventh consecutive year of sustained growth following the 2009 global economic and financial crisis. A comparable sequence of uninterrupted solid growth has not been recorded since the 1960s. As a result, 300 million more international tourists travelled the world in 2016 as compared to the pre-crisis record in 2008.

Looking at the numbers
As tourism continues to grow, tourists are looking for new and different ways to explore their destination cities and Rhoades Car has the uniqueness to not only give them a bucket-list experience, but also want more of the same on their next trip.

Since there’s quite a few benefits of a Rhoades Car electric bike rental fleet, we’ll focus on some of the major advantages.  With any other business, having a great return on investment (ROI) is important.  Let’s explore a rental program and use estimates:
Here’s an example of a business investing in the rental program which includes six total GoBoy models (includes 2 seat and 1 seat models).  Initial investment is approx. $15,000 including shipping charges.  Average rental per hour on the 2 seater is $20 and $15 on the one seater.  In a high traffic area in peak season, you could realistically rent each one out 4 x per day. That’s $440 per day in rentals.  Divide your total investment of $15,000 by the estimated daily rental fees of $440 and you would receive your entire investment back in 34 days.  How’s that for ROI?  You can also add other upgrades to different models and charge extra depending on what upgrades they choose.  If you’re not in a high traffic area or you are applying these to another aspect of your business, then it could be a few months longer but what a great opportunity!

Options
Electric bikes and electric modes of transportation are the new craze now even in the rental and tour markets.  And why not, they’re energy-efficient and they’re extremely easy to use.  Adding the electric motor-assist to your Rhoades Car fleet continues this enthusiasm by not only making their experience a bit easier but it also creates an added level of quality and professionalism in your product that shows how much you care and want your customers to enjoy their ride even more.  Canopies are also a great addition as they offer shade from the sun but they still allow you to enjoy the breeze and fresh air of the city around you.  Another great practical aspect of our canopies is that they are also easy to take on and off, which allows the business owner to give options to their customers.  Looking for additional parts that customers will love, try these out – cupholders, arm rests, fenders, speedometers, and rear-view mirrors!

Why Rhoades Car?
With lots of tourist companies trying to gain market share, what sets Rhoades Cars apart from the competition?  It’s the same combination that sets them apart from others in the personal transportation market – combining exercise and quality time!  It’s a valuable and healthy alternative that no rental or tour fleet can offer.  Our quadricycles also provide the safest cycling experience for the elderly or those who need a more stable riding platform.  With four wheels and comfortable seating, it’s the best of both worlds!

Have you been looking for an investment opportunity that’s fun and allows you to help people experience a healthy way to tour a city?  Maybe you’ve been looking for a business that will allow you to succeed in the tourism industry and promote your city?  Now’s the time to take advantage!
