Sports store chain Decathlon starts renting out sports equipment. The rental service is being rolled out widely in our country.
The chain has already conducted some tests with the rental service, and will offer it in all its Belgian stores from Monday. Belgium is the first country where the French company is rolling out the rental service on a large scale.
In concrete terms, customers will be able to rent sports equipment for a day, a week, a month or three months. In a first phase, this mainly concerns equipment for cycling and water sports, fitness, camping, trekking and winter sports. The intention is to expand the offer in the future.
The reservation is made online. The equipment can be collected from a Decathlon store of your choice. Large fitness equipment is delivered to your home. The rental price is about 2 to 10 percent of the purchase price.
Decathlon is not the only chain that rents out sports equipment. AS Adventure, among others, has a rental offer.
