You can book with confidence
As a responsible tour operator, we work in partnership with two organisations to help protect you and your booking. Our membership of The Association of Bonded Travel Organisers Trust (ABTOT) provides financial protection to our customers should we not be able to provide your trip due to insolvency. We are also members of ABTA, the UK's travel trade organisation, who provide a code of conduct and are able to help should you not be happy with elements of our service.
We're also often featured in the press with the likes of the Guardian and The Telegraph regularly endorsing our cycling holidays in their travel round ups and holiday reviews. But of course, the biggest indicator that our holidays offer you the best experience, is our customers. With 96% saying they would return for more, we're fairly confident our holidays hit the right marks and will inspire and impress you too.

We support responsible travel
We understand that to travel is a privilege and must be done sustainably. That's why each tour in our range has been carefully crafted to ensure it benefits the local people and places you visit, and why we choose to travel by bike and in small groups to help minimise the disruption to local communities.

Alongside ensuring our holidays operate in a sustainable, positive way, we are also proud sponsors of UK-based charity, Sustrans. For every mile cycled along the National Cycle Network during one of our holidays, we donate 5p to Sustrans. Since introducing these initiatives in 2010 we have raised over £22,000 which goes toward maintaining essential cycle infrastructure in the UK.
