About us

How Cruizador was born?

Back in 2015, I was visiting my cousin in Portugal and naturally, I was looking to rent a motorcycle for a few days to discover the beautiful scenic roads of the Algarve

region. However, it was almost impossible to find a rental company. And when I got to find one, they were charging at least 140€/day, when my rental car cost about 25€/day.

Being an avid traveler, I faced this contradiction everywhere I went to: USA, Australia, Spain, France, etc..

Back in Switzerland, I started to analyse the market and found also the same incoherence, despite having probably among the nicest scenic roads in the world: high prices, fragmented offer, flawed and non-digitalised booking process, and so on.

Furthermore, a few friends of mine had to give up on their motorbike for many reasons being family, job, etc.. But when Spring was around the corner, the same question was popping again: can I borrow your bike for a day or two?

Cruizador about us


What did we do about that? 

The demand was there, but no offer to match it. Thus we decided to team up with a few friends to tackle the issue and come up with a real alternative for all the neglected riders out there.

Being avid users of the sharing economy (Airbnb among others), we decided to unite the riders community around a collaborative project. And so came Cruizador to the light!

In July 2018 we market launch in Switzerland with a MVP, i.e. a website with very limited features. For two years, we learned thanks to many interactions with our users (continuous feedback loops).

In January 2020, we came up with a totally newly designed digital platform, that offers a lot of freedom to our users and allows us to automatized certain workflows to manage our constantly growing inbound traffic.

And since then, we have continuously improved our ecosystem by adding new features or polishing the existing ones.

So Cruizador, what’s that?

Our vision is to make motorcycle rental easy and convenient with the help a digital marketplace. Our mission is to connect riders, who don’t own a bike but seek to rent one, with dealerships and private owners, willing to rent out. Cruizador has created a safe environment by providing during the rental period

  • a comprehensive cover (more info here)
  • a secured digital payment
  • extended customer support (EN/FR/DE) and
  • a 24/7 road assistance.

Cruizador about us


Cruizador, why is it for me?

Having a motorcycle, whether you ride it or not, means an insurance, a state tax to pay, maintenance costs and often a closed garage to protect it from the thieves/vagaries of the climate … Motorcycles are luxury goods for owners. They are able to pay for it in the name of their passion, but often at the price of concessions in their daily life.Cruizador about us

We will also mention this new generation which is increasingly working as a freelancer or part-time and who has a limited income. Some bikers ride too little to have a motorcycle, which would therefore cost them far too much, and others have had to sell their bikes for family or professional reasons.

In addition, the so-called traditional rental is often expensive and not convenient (booking process not digital among others).

So, in this case, why not rent one occasionally from a private owner?


Still not convinced?

We wrote two articles that might bring on additional arguments:

  1. Unraveling 6 myths and realities around P2P-motorbike rental: here
  2. The economic reasoning behind Cruizador, on the basis of a real case (BMW R9T): here

Cruizador is therefore the leading motorcycle rental portal in Switzerland: all available rentals concentrated on one platform!
