European cycling holidays specialist Bikecation has revamped its website with a new booking platform.
Bikecation claims its platform will “revolutionise cycling holidays throughout Europe” by offering a “one-stop website to book custom-made cycling trips in minutes to suit all budgets”.
It has a team of cycling specialists who vet the ins and outs of a trip, including routes, cycle-friendly flights and hotels as well as transfers and car and bike hire in more than 50 locations across Europe.
It includes round-the-world cyclist, author, journalist and TV personality Rob Penn, who said: “Booking your own cycling holiday or short break was never straight forward – knowing where to go and when, then different websites for flights, hotels, airport transfers and plotting routes. Well, we’ve taken all the faff out. You can now sort the whole thing on one website, to your budget.
“With guided cycling holidays, you have to join a group of people who you don’t know and you’re limited to set dates and locations. With our website, you could be out for a drink on Thursday night with friends, book online over a pint, climb Alpe d’Huez and Galibier over the weekend, and be back in the office on Monday morning.”
Once booked, cyclists receive tailored advice, including downloadable cycling routes, gpx files, advice on what to see, do and where to eat at their chosen destination and access if needed to 24-hour back-up support from the Bikecation office and full Atol and TTA protection.
