Reserving Extra Hotel Nights

by Nadine Dirksen - Monday, April 10, 2017

Depending on your arrival and/or departure date, you may need to book an extra night at our tour starting and/or ending hotel(s). We are happy to to do this for you. This service is included in Classic, Spotlight, and Expedition tours (Explorer tours excluded).  Just shoot us an email at reservations@experienceplus.com or give us a ring at 1-800-685-4565.

If you’re a hands-on planner, here are a few tips to make this easy.

ExperiencePlus! does not receive commission for any pre- or post-tour booking that you make or that we make for you.

If your tour is further than 6 months out, please check with us before making your travel arrangements!

Make your extra night hotel reservation online:

  • Find out which are your tour starting, meeting, ending or drop-off hotels. Refer to the online itinerary specific to your ExperiencePlus! cycling tour. Read the arrival and departure information carefully as e.g. your group might meet at a meeting hotel and then transfer to the tour starting point together.
  • Use the hotel’s booking platform or an online hotel booking site (e.g. booking.com).We recommend booking refundable/flexible rates. In the comment box or a follow-up email, let the hotel know you are with the ExperiencePlus! group on X date.
  • Make sure you receive confirmation of your reservation. 
  • Let us know you’ve made your own reservation and we’ll be happy to reiterate to the hotel that you’re with our group. 
  • Take the reservation confirmation along. 

If you need to cancel your hotel reservations, check if a penalty applies and make make sure you receive cancellation confirmation.

If you prefer to email the hotel instead  of booking online, keep in mind that it will be more difficult to provide them with your credit card information to secure your reservation (we don’t recommend that you email sensitive information like this), communication will be less prompt, and more follow-up is required.
