COVID 19 UPDATES
At the latest on 1 July Spain will open its borders again for foreign tourists.
From that moment on, the current travel restrictions will be lifted.
Until then, people who are already in Spain are allowed to travel only within the same province.
Precautions, Security and Flexibility
PRECAUTIONS DURING HOLIDAYS IN SPAIN
The Spanish government has taken strict precautions to ensure the safety of tourists.
In most places, a 'safe distance' of 2 meters should be maintained between each person.
All accommodations and transport companies act according to strict hygiene and personal distance protocols.
At this time, in all catering establishments, tables must be placed at least 2 meters apart
Each group or family has its own table. The tables are cleaned before each new party.
Common areas in hotels will remain closed for the time being. Breakfast will be served individually or in the room.
Hotel rooms must remain empty for 24 hours before being re-occupied by new guests.
In public transport and all (public) areas where the personal distance of 2 meters cannot be guaranteed,
the use of mouth masks is mandatory.
As the organizer of your holiday, we take care of:
- gloves, gel and mouth mask for all participants for the first day
Mouth masks and disinfectant gel can be purchased at any pharmacy (and many supermarkets) en route.
- disinfection of the material supplied by us, such as bicycles, helmets, tools, etc.
You can also buy brand new helmets from us, if you prefer.
Please let us know in advance so that we can purchase the right size and model for you.
SECURITY AND FLEXIBILITY BEFORE YOU START YOUR JOURNEY
If you have to change your trip due to a new outbreak of COVID19 in Spain, we will participate in changing all accommodation and service reservations on the chosen route free of charge.
For new bookings (from July 2020) we require a deposit of only 10% of the total travel sum.
(Usual is 25-35%). You pay this at the time of the reservation.
The rest of your travel sum you only pay 8 days before departure (normally that is 14 days.)
You can take out extra comprehensive travel insurance through us, which covers 90% of the cancellation costs of your booking up to 24 hours before departure , regardless of the reason for cancellation . And that is unique. The premium is approx. € 8 per person per day, depending on the amount of the total travel sum and the number of participants. This ARAG insurance can only be taken out when booking the trip.
The conditions of this insurance can be read here as a PDF file (subject to interim changes).
All (down) payments for the trip are covered by a legal guarantee scheme,
so that even in case of bankruptcy of the organizer, you will get your money back.
