If you are taking your own bike;

We strongly advise to hire a bike, in most cases it’s cheaper and you don’t have the hassle of taking spares and your bike on the flight, needing extra luggage space. However if hiring is not for you we can help in a specific checklist for the specific trip.

Before you depart, don't forget to do the following:
1.    Print and pack any travel documentation (i.e. boarding passes, hotel voucher, bike package voucher, transfer information, travel insurance information). Don't forget that most airlines no longer issue tickets so don't worry if we haven't sent you one.
2.    Pack your passport
3.    If you have a transfer booked, double-check where to go for transport from the airport to the hotel
4.    If you have a bike package voucher, double-check where and when your bikes will be dropped off, if hiring and also where the rides are starting from, if guided
5.    Don’t forget to pack your bike essentials, helmet, shoes, gloves, pedals, if requested, glasses, suitable clothing for the weather out there and sun protection
6.    Get ready to have an amazing time!

Helpful Hint – On your hotel voucher, there's often a local telephone number for the supplier, so you can make contact easily if there's any queries whilst on holiday. Why not make a note of it before checking in at the hotel?
