Payments

On this page you will find information about our payment process, including deposit amounts, ways to pay, and general information.

Deposit

When your tour is confirmed, the next step is paying your deposit. Payments are accepted in USD, CAD, or Euros.

*DEPOSIT AMOUNTS Tours 10 Days or less Tours 11 Days or more
Euros €500 per person €1000 per person
US Dollars $500 per person $1000 per person
Canadian Dollars $650 per person $1300 per person


*Please note, some tours require a higher deposit amount. If this is the case, you will find this information in the pricing section of our website.

The deposit amount is applied to the balance at the daily exchange rate of the base currency of your tour (plus a 1.5 cent transaction cost) when the final invoice is prepared.

A non-refundable booking fee of €25 ($30 if tour is priced in USD) per person will be added to your booking invoice.


Final Invoice

  • Final invoices are prepared 100 days before your departure date
  • Price in USD or CAD will be based on the exchange rate* on the day the final invoice is issued
  • Final payment is due 90 days before the departure date.

*You may request your final invoice before 100 days to lock in a favorable exchange rate, however, once the final invoice is sent the rate is locked in regardless of future fluctuating rates.

  • Currency Exchange Service (Non-EU Residents) - Our EU bank information is above.

Email address for sending payments: payments@biketours.com

We find, for our international clients who are not part of the European Union, that the most cost-effective method of transacting a Euro payment is by using a money transfer service. One such service you may choose to use is Wise (formerly known as Transferwise). If using a currency exchange service, no additional wire fees are required.

For most international clients, this process is very straightforward. Canadian clients may be asked for document certification as an extra layer of security. (As a result of this, we accept payment in CAD through our TD Canadian Bank account.)

It is not advised that non-EU residents use their local bank for wire transfers, due to associated fees. Outgoing wire fees for your bank are your responsibility. DO NOT SEND PAYMENT BASED ON THE “BEN” PAYMENT INSTRUCTION. The beneficiary pays all wire costs under this payment method.

Additional notes

A failure to pay can result in a cancellation of your reservation and will incur associated fees. We have the right to apply such fees to the credit card/debit on file.
