BikeTours.com loves working with travel agents and helping you look like a hero!
We’re bike tours experts and share that expertise with you. We represent more than 70 local overseas bike tour companies with over 170 tours in 30+ countries and each year send more than 3,000 clients on cycling tours in Europe.
We save your clients money! Most of our prices are dramatically lower than you’d find elsewhere–about a third of them less than $1,000. Local overseas bike tour companies tend to keep their prices low, and we offer nearly all tours at the same pricing you’d find booking directly.
There are three primary ways we work with travel agents:
In general we pay commission of 5% on the base tour price excluding any supplement such as single, seasonal, or optional services. For bigger groups more commission may be offered, however in general there is no commission AND group discount offered.
The first step, once you have fully informed clients, is to submit a reservation form on behalf of your clients with your contact being primary. Your clients' information will be entered in the "traveling companions" section.
With custom tours, we can offer you net pricing, and you let us know how much commission to add. The net price plus your commission is the gross price we’ll charge your client. Given our local overseas contacts, even with your commission added, the clients are still getting a very competitive price. With our extensive bike tour experience, we’re pretty good at developing tours that match client needs. We can work either directly with the client or through you. (A tour is deemed “custom” when major changes have been made to the itinerary. Simply adding extra nights does not make a tour custom.)
If you have a large group, we are often able to offer commissions. Our ability to do this depends on the size of the group and the commission we receive for the tour. Because of our relationship with the overseas operators, we’re usually able to have them block space on option rather than make an upfront commitment, and, again, the pricing is quite competitive. Depending on your preference, the clients can book directly with us or through you.
We hope we can work with you for your clients. Please contact us to learn more.
