Many of our travelers plan a bit of a cushion around their cycling adventure to have time to get over jetlag, discover new places or enjoy a bit of dolce vita before or after the tour. If this is you and you would like to extend your stay at your booked ExperiencePlus! tour’s starting or ending hotel, we’re here to help! This complimentary service is available for all our tour styles except for Explorer tours. Explorers – scroll down for a full guide on how to make your own extra night reservations.
Tour Starting and Ending Hotels
We’ll be more than happy to arrange extra nights at your tour starting and ending hotels for you so you have less work making arrangements, along with the convenience of keeping the same room for your entire stay. Refer to your tour packet for the full list of hotels. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us with your extra night request (Explorer tours excluded).
Additional Hotel TBA Remark
Some itineraries may have a note that says “Additional Hotel TBA”. This means that some departures may use a different hotel than, or in addition to, the one listed. We will announce your departure hotel as soon as possible. If you are booked on a Classic, Expedition or Bike and Boat tour, even when the hotel has not been confirmed, we will still be happy to collect your extra night requests, and book you in once it’s possible. As always, we recommend that you only make flexible arrangements if you book on your own.
If you’re booked on an Explorer tour, extra night reservations will need to be made at your end. If you see this remark and are uncertain, please reach out to us!
Tour Meeting Hotels
For some of our tours that start in more remote locations, we often designate a meeting hotel that we use as a gathering point to meet our complimentary ExperiencePlus! shuttle. We have have been able to arrange special rates with some meeting hotels, and would love to make your pre- or post-tour reservations there for you! Just reach out and check with us, and we’ll tell you all you need to know! (Explorer tours excluded.)
Other Hotel Recommendations
If you would like to expand your travels to other locations beyond your cycling tour, or simple see what else is out there, give our hotel recommendations a look! Find them listed under each country on our Travel Planning Pages.
Some fine print
Traveler Services, including booking extra hotel night arrangements through ExperiencePlus!, are not included in the tour pricing for Explorer Tours. For all other tour types, Traveler Services are included. ExperiencePlus! does not receive commission for any pre- or post-tour booking that you make or that we make for you. ExperiencePlus! can only book hotels listed on your booked itinerary, and for your tour dates. Any other hotel arrangements need to be made by travelers. We cannot give rate predictions or provide comparisons. Some but not all hotel extend a potentially lower rate to our travelers online, but you may still find lower rates online. If you’re on a hunt for savings, then it may be best if you book your preferred rate on your own, keeping in mind that it may come with restrictions, including pre-payment, and moving rooms.
