Your Road Cycling Holiday Travel Requirements
There are currently no travel restrictions to any of the countries where we run cycling holidays. In addition, there are currently no covid-related travel restrictions for entering the UK.
We will continue to closely follow the advice of the UK FCDO and ABTA, and we are monitoring this as international travel resumes in this new way.
We’re also keeping track of the airlines and flight cancellations, as well as country quarantine policies, and we’re considering how these will affect each departure individually.
OUR PROMISE TO YOU: We will let you know no later than 21 days before departure whether or not your much longed-for cycling holiday will be able to run.
It’s our mission to leave no stone unturned when it comes to planning your holiday and helping you have the very best possible experience on two wheels. We also care deeply about the Marmot community and our many loyal clients, so we’ve put together a few Q&A’s which are typical of the queries we’ve received since the pandemic hit.
It goes without saying that the safety of our clients, guides and staff is of paramount importance to us. We would advise you to read the current advice from the FCDO here. As members of ABTA we are also taking their advice and you can read some helpful information they have compiled here.
“Is my European cycling holiday still going ahead this year?”
At present, we anticipate that all of our 2022 holidays will be going ahead!
However, if your trip needs to be cancelled, we will always give you at least 21 days notice. If you haven’t heard from us that your trip is cancelled, then you can assume your trip will go ahead. We ask you to bear with us and keep an eye on this page and The Link for updates. Where we have been forced to cancel a trip that you’re booked on, we will be in touch with you individually as quickly as possible.
“I’m not sure I want to go ahead with my holiday. What are my options?”
If you choose to cancel your holiday, then our normal Terms & Conditions do apply. You can read them here.
However, we appreciate that some of you have concerns about travelling – maybe you’re a non-UK client and are facing different travel restrictions imposed by your own country, or you may be vulnerable and already know you don’t want to or can’t travel at all. We can offer you the option to rebook on any of our 2022 trips (subject to availability). There is a £25 administration fee for switching and you must inform us at least 60 days prior to the departure date of your current booking.
Another option is: if you find someone to take your place for you, we will refund your deposit less a £50 administration fee once they have booked. You can nominate a replacement rider up to two weeks before departure.
“Can I use my deposit on another trip in the future?”
Yes, you can transfer your deposit to another available holiday in 2022. All our itineraries for 2022 can be found on our holidays page. However, we’re unable to transfer your deposit to 2023. To get the most up to date information on which trips still have availability, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org . Once we’ve pencilled you in for a place, you’ll then be able to make a new booking on The Link and we’ll transfer over any monies already paid to your new holiday.
