Who is the owner of the bikes?

Please note Cycle Classic Tours does not own the bikes. Our office is based in Steenwijk in the Netherlands. We have carefully selected all our bike rentals stations in many countries in Europe. We guarantee the same prices as the bike rental companies would offer you. For sure you avoid  possible language barriers when reserving a bike trough our Cycle Classic Tours online bookings platform. 

Deliveries?

Many suppliers offering a delivery service. Cycle Classic cooperates with around 95 different  partners. Each supplier has its own system, you can find the info when making the booking under important details. The delivery schedule will be organized by the supplier of the bikes, mostly 4-5 days before the start date of your bike rental.

Rental duration?

The bike rental system is always based on calendar days. For example : If you decide to bring back a bike in the morning > this will be considered as a full day as this bike can’t be rent to another customer on the same day due to cleaning and repairing of the bike.

Sundays?

Some companies are open on Sunday and some are closed. Each supplier has its own opening hours. There are supplier who offer a delivery service on Sunday. Check the specific bookings page to see the opening hours. you can find this info when making the booking under important details.

Insurance?

Good cycle insurance policies are hard to find, especially for cyclists undertaking extended trips. Leave plenty of time to find the best policy that covers you AND your bike. Depending on your trip, it may be necessary to insure yourself and your bike and accessories separately. Make sure you ask plenty of questions of insurance companies and read the fine print to make sure you understand the policy’s conditions, and what is and isn’t included. It’s also important to know what caveats the insurance company has put in place to avoid having to pay out in the event of a claim: using a lock not on the insurer’s approved list; not having evidence of ownership of your bike and your lock (eg a sales receipt, photographs, etc); not locking the bike to a fixed object; or not using an 'official' cycle rack at a train station can all render a policy useless. It is also a good idea to photograph your bike and accessories prior to departure. If you opt not to wear a helmet, check that the personal liability component of any policy doesn’t require that you wear one.

Responsibility? 

Cycle Classic tours errors and mistakes (including misprints) are not binding. By making a reservation through Cycle Classic Tours you enter into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with the rental company at which you book. From the point at which you make your reservation, we act solely as an intermediary between you and the rental company, transmitting the details of your reservation to the relevant rental company and sending you a confirmation email for and on behalf of the rental company.

There will be no refunds on in advance payments, except when bikes are not available anymore. The rental company is at all times responsible for- deliveries, ( drop off and collection) you need to get in contact with the bike rental station when having a delivery/pick up issue or for all kinds of bike maintenance.
