By signing up for a vacation with Great Bike Tours, you must agree to be bound by all the terms and conditions outlined below.

COVID-19 Protocols

June 1, 2023 – As of this date, our trip participants are no longer required to provide proof of vaccination (against COVID-19), nor will we require proof of a negative COVID test result.

However, please be aware that any guest (or guide) who exhibits COVID symptoms during the trip will be required to isolate from the rest of the group, and this also goes for their roommates as well. Both occupants of the room will then be asked to complete a COVID test, and if either one of them tests positive, then neither of them will be allowed to continue with the tour and will be asked to leave (if they are healthy enough to do so). Please be aware if any guest come down with COVID, then GBT will not be able to offer any refunds, nor will they be responsible for any additional expenses incurred. For this reason and others, we thus recommend purchasing Travel Insurance before your trip.

To ensure that we all have a safe and healthy bike vacation, we ask that everyone takes all the steps necessary so that you are 100 percent healthy when you first arrive on our trip. With that in mind, we recommend wearing a mask while in route to our trips, and that includes on flights, and in other crowded indoor spaces. If everyone remains healthy throughout the trip, then we will not require guests (or guides) to wear face masks in our vans, but we fully support those that decide to do so.

Reservations and Payments

Our published prices are per person based on double occupancy per room, quoted in U.S. dollars. Solo travelers are subject to an additional single-supplement surcharge. To secure your reservation we require a deposit of $500 per person. The balance of your trip cost is due 90 days prior to departure. All payments should be made by check to Great Bike Tours.

Cancellation and Refunds

Great Bike Tours is not able to issue any refunds for arriving late, leaving a tour early, no-shows, personal emergencies, illnesses, catching COVID, fear of pandemics, or bad weather (either during the tour, or preventing you from making it to the tour). Great Bike Tours cannot make any exceptions to the above cancellation policies. For all the above reasons, we recommend that all our guests consider travel insurance coverage (we suggest Allianz Travel Insurance).

If you cancel your tour:

If you must cancel your reservation, you must do so in writing. If you cancel, then the cancellation refunds/penalties will be determined according to the policy outlined below:

  • Cancellations made more than 90 days prior to tour departure will receive a full refund, minus a $150 processing fee, per person.
  • Cancellations made 61-90 days prior to tour departure will be charged 30 percent of the full trip price.
  • Cancellations made 31-60 days prior to tour departure will be charged 60 percent of the full trip price.
  • Cancellations made less than 30 days prior to tour departure will be charged 100% of the purchase price.
  • Changes to your reservation can be made to another tour date (subject to availability) with no penalty if made more than 60 days prior to original tour departure date. If you are within 60 days of your original departure date and choose to transfer to another tour, you will be charged a $150 processing fee per person and may be subject to additional cancellation fees (as stated above).

Cancellation by Great Bike Tours:

Great Bike Tours reserves the right to cancel a tour at any time for any reason, including outbreaks of COVID-19 or other pandemics. In addition, all of our trips require a minimum number of participants for the tour to operate, and we reserve the right to cancel any trip that fails to reach that minimum number. In the event of cancellation, a full refund will be sent to each guest. However, Great Bike Tours will not reimburse for any personal expenses due to tour cancellations, such as prepaid airline tickets or other travel or hotel expenses. For these reasons and more, we recommend purchasing travel insurance (we suggest Allianz Travel Insurance).
