HIlton Lime bike rentals

If you aren’t familiar with JUMP bikes, they are the bright-coral coloured e-bikes you are likely to have seen dotted around London. JUMP was bought by Lime from Uber in May.

Lime bikes cost 15p per minute and can be dropped off anywhere across the city and do not need to be returned to the hotel. To pick one up you simply scan a QR code on the bike and ride to your destination.

The hotels will offer sanitised helmets for safe cycling as well as a 15 minute free ride code for new users. If you don’t already have a Lime account and aren’t planning on staying in a London Hilton any time soon, you can get a free unlock credit using my referral code here
