What happens if I breakdown on my Self Guided tour?

2015-12-20T15:38:51+00:00

You would be surprised at how few breakdowns occur on modern motorcycles although we insist that all riders have European breakdown cover. Even in the most remote regions of Europe this will cover all eventualities and will ensure you can continue your trip. We are of curse also available by phone if you need help at any point along the route.

What meals are included?

2015-12-20T15:30:03+00:00

Check each tour for specifics but as a rule of thumb all breakfasts are included as are around half of the evening meals. We do this to allow you to explore and choose where you eat on some of the evenings, we have always found people prefer a bit of choice along the way and recognise that not everyone wants a three course meal every night. Lunches are not included and neither are drinks.

All we ask is that the deposit money is paid upon booking and the balance of the tour is paid 10 weeks before the commencement of your trip. We also strongly recommend that you take out holiday cancellation insurance that covers you in the event that you are unable to come on your booked tour for any reason.
