The easiest way to book your bike holiday, is to fill out our online booking form. But feel free to use e-mail or phone if you prefer. The booking will be definitive and irrevocable as soon as the booking confirmation has been sent to you. Should you wish to make changes to your booking, this will be possible up to 14 days before the start of the holiday (if the hotels are still able to accept the changes). We charge €25, - per booking for processing the change irrespective of the number of participants.
We advise that you bring your own puncture kit in case you have to fix a flat tire. For minor repairs you can turn to a bicycle repairman. For anything bigger, call our service hotline.
Some of our bike tours are suitable for families with children. We rent out child bikes, child seats, trailers and trailer-bikes.
The last day of the holiday is departure day: the day you check out of the hotel and travel home. We have not planned any cycling on this day. Rental bikes will not be available to you on this day.
We have cycle tours for cyclists of all ability levels, as our tours have varying degrees of difficulty. The classification below should be regarded as a global indication of cycling difficulty levels and is intended only to help compare the tours.
Level 1 *
This is an easy cycling trip on relatively flat terrain, suitable for people with little or no cycling experience. Daily cycling distances span roughly 30-50 km. A 3-gear bike should suffice.
Level 2 **
The terrain is slightly hilly. You will encounter a short incline from time to time. With some cycling experience you should easily be able to handle this level. Daily distances span 30-65 km. A five-gear bike is sufficient. More gears may be appreciated.
Level 3 ***
You can expect a journey through hilly terrain with regular climbs, some of them strenuous even to the point of perhaps having to get off and push for a bit. Your bike will require at least ten gears. Daily cycling distances span 30-75 km.
Level 4 ****
Hilly to mountainous terrain. Inclines are longer and steeper than in level 3. A good level of physical fitness and a bike with alpine gearing are a must. Daily cycling distances can vary from 30 to 80 km.
Your luggage – one suitcases per person (max. 20 kilo) – will be transported by us from hotel to hotel. The luggage is picked up after 9 a.m. and usually delivered to your next hotel before 5 p.m.
Per room you will receive 1 extra luggage tag.
We will handle your luggage with care. With normal use scratches, dents and other minor damages of your suitcases can occur. For this, we are not responsible. For large damages you can file a claim with your travel and/or luggage insurance.
As soon as we can confirm your holiday, we will send you the travel agreement (contract) per e-mail. It will stipulate the sum of your down payment, to be paid immediately (20% of the total price of your holiday). The remaining sum is due no later than 6 weeks before the starting date of your holiday.
Most hotels don’t accept pets. If you want to take your dog with you on your holiday, please contact us to discuss the options.
Part of our tours are round tours, i.e. the hotel where you start your holiday is also the hotel you return to at the end. Free parking is not standard for all our tours.
