All bookings made as of January 2018 will have the following terms and conditions applied and these are part of our standard terms and conditions.
For a trip to go ahead a minimum of 10 bookings must be achieved. We have the right to cancel a trip in the unlikely event that this number is not achieved. In the event of a trip cancellation we will refund any payments made to us. Our decision will be made 12 weeks before the departure date.
Please note we do not refund any other costs, such as flights.
Any payment NOT made by its due date, whether an interim payment or the final balance could result in your booking being cancelled with NO refund of any previous monies paid.
If you are late with an interim payment the current FULL balance must be paid within 14 days of the interim payment due date or your booking will be cancelled.
If you are late with your final payment your booking could be cancelled.
Late payment will incur a £25 additional charge for every or any part of a period of every seven days after the due date. This will be added to your current statement/invoice.
We do not like imposing these terms. However, we not only have considerable advance commitments to hotels and other associated travel and admin costs, but also always have a client reserve list of cyclists wanting to get on a tour, and we need to fulfil their requests as quickly as possible.
Once a trip/holiday payment has been made, either as an interim or complete payment you have 14 days from the date of that payment to cancel your booking and will receive a full refund.
This is how it works: if you cancel within 14 days of paying your deposit you will receive a full refund of your deposit. If you cancel after 14 days of paying your deposit, European Cycle Events reserves the right to keep your deposit.
If you cancel at some date after the 14-day period within which you paid your deposit, but within 14 days of the date that you paid the balance of the cost of your trip, you will receive a full refund for the balance but European Cycle Events reserves the right to keep your deposit.
If you cancel after 14 days of paying your final balance, or for the avoidance of doubt, where you decided to make one full payment for your trip including the deposit and final balance, European Cycle Events reserves the right to keep your total payment.
A cancellation can only be accepted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any other communication will not be accepted. In addition to your cancellation please include the full name(s) of the participants and date your payment was made.
If you are sharing a room and the person you are sharing with drops out you will then be charged single room occupancy fee unless you or European Cycle Events can find a replacement. We will always do our best to find a replacement (of the same sex) but in the event we cannot, or you cannot, then single room occupancy rate will apply. Notwithstanding the above, and if you have not paid for single room occupancy, then you will be sharing your room and your ‘room-mate’ will be allocated on arrival at your hotel.
It is a company policy of European Cycle Events that all customers travelling with us have adequate travel insurance covering accident, personal injury, loss of luggage and cancellation. If you cancel your trip with European Cycle Events Limited, you are liable for any costs and losses, as stated above, so please be sure you have travel insurance.
