GENERAL CONDITIONS OUTSIDE SPAIN FOR ONE WEEK BIKE TOURS:
Cancellations and changes in reservations These terms and conditions, which you agree to by booking your trip, govern the contractual relationship between you as a traveller and ourselves as a tour operator. Please read all the following terms and conditions carefully.
If the minimum required number of persons for any tour is not reached, we reserve the right to cancel it. This decision will be made as soon as possible, at least two weeks prior to the starting date. In such a case all payments will be fully refunded and no claims against us will be accepted. As a tour operator and travel agent, we have the right to cancel if the trip is jeopardized, made difficult or impaired due to an act of nature.
Your cancellations will be valid as soon as a written notification (by email or regular mail) reaches our office. Should your cancellation, before the 60th day prior to the start had been paid, the whole amount minus a cancellation fee of Euro 50 per person will be refunded. Our cancellation fees are: -60 days or more before the departure date: 10% of the invoice -59 to 31 days before the departure date: 30% of the invoice -30 to 21 days before the departure date: 50% of the invoice -20 to 11 days before the departure date: 70% of the invoice -10 to 1 days before the departure date: 90% of the invoice “No shows” or cancelling on the same day of departure: Full amount of invoice. If you are prevented from travelling due to loss of documents or incomplete documents, this will also be considered as a cancellation.
To avoid any of these problems we recommend buying insurance at the moment the trip is requested
Any change will be regarded in the same way as a cancellation. Any change in your reservation will have a charge of 55 euros if this is done 28 days or more before the trip is started. Any other changes after these 28 days will be considered as a cancellation and the rates mentioned above will be applied and the new changes considered as a new reservation. Fees arising as a result of either of the two aforementioned events will have to be paid immediately.
In addition to the cancellation charges referenced in the relevant section, and regardless of the date in which the cancellation of the trip is made, the client is required to pay the following fees:
- advance payments imposed by the country of destination
- The amounts relating to processing fees
Receipt of the Reservation form, duly completed, will be considered as having entered into the terms of the contract
As our partners are in different parts of the world and each have different cancellation conditions, these will have to depend on their own.
A deposit is due after the reservations have been made. Should this deposit have not been paid within the first week of the agreement between the two parts, the travel contract will be nullified. The rest of the payment is due four weeks before the start of the trip.

Once an advance payment of 40% of the total amount of the trip has been received, the registration and reservation will be considered definitive. If this is not fulfilled, the travel agency has the right to annul the contract. Payment for the balance of the total cost of the trip must be effected by 40 days prior to the start of the trip.
