ExperiencePlus! travel assistance

ExperiencePlus! is available to help you coordinate your transportation to and from your booked cycling tour. Travel assistance includes submitting flight quote requests with Exito Travel and also booking extra nights at the tour starting and or ending hotels! Read on to learn more.

Travelers booked on Classic, Bike & Boat and Expedition tours are welcome to use travel assistance provided by ExperiencePlus!. Gravel Explorer and self-guided tour pricing does not include travel assistance.

If you’re left scratching your head about train schedules or which bus to take to arrive to your tour, we’re happy to help.  If you are researching on your own, remember that schedules for most European trains aren’t released until 3, or sometimes 2  months prior to the departure date. More questions on trains?

We will be delighted to book extra nights for you at your tour starting and ending hotels, and selected meeting hotels as listed on your tour itinerary. Extra nights will be booked in your name, and you can make payment directly at the hotel when you are present. We will ask hotels to keep you in the same room as you have with the group so you won’t have to move during your stay. No credit card is needed to make these arrangements. Read more on extra hotel nights, and email or call us to get your extra night request started.

ExperiencePlus! partners with air travel concierge service who offers professional help with complex and simple flight itineraries alike, have access to great business class fares, and can offer expert advice. 

While we won’t be able to offer travel assistance to those booked on Gravel Explorer tours, there is still a wealth of information available to help you plan your trip. Refer to the Travel Planning section on our website. Gravel Explorer travelers are also welcome to utilize Exito Travel’s air concierge services.
