Are you hooked yet? If so you need to know the gory details
of booking and have a look at what
happens when you arrive to prepare yourself... Also it is essential that you have a
look at our FAQ page which makes many important things clear, that otherwise might be buried in the website.
Once you are ready to book you are welcome to print off the form here, just copy and paste it into an email. Also we fully expect everyone to E-mail us for help and advice before booking, we really prefer to have such contact so we can make sure we supply the best holiday for your needs.
Normally holidays run from Saturday to Saturday, giving you a full
weeks/fortnights cycling also see what
happens when you arrive. for 2013 we are introducing as an option, Friday -> Friday booking, which may reduce the cost of ferries/flights etc.
Once you have decided to come, you just need to fill in the form below, and send it along with a non-returnable deposit of £75 per adult and £50 for children under 18 in the form of a cheque made out to Breton Bikes, or direct bank treansfer. If you cancel only this will be forfeit and in that case the deposit still stands for the following year so you don't lose out. Payment can also be by credit/payment cards via the Paypal system - I simply send you a 'request for payment' and the rest is simple (normally...) however this only applies if you pay in Euro (see Euro booking form here), and please email us with any questions on this. This is the safest method of credit card payment we know, you don't even have to give us your card details and it is free to you. Alternatively you can pay in the form of a bank cheque but only if drawn on a French bank (check with your bank). Or a direct bank transfer - though remember to specify fees to be paid at your end.
We'll then send you confirmation and a load of bumph telling how to survive the holiday, what to bring etc. Six weeks before you are due to arrive you have to send us the balance of the cost. If you cancel giving at least 21 days notice then you will lose the deposit only. However if you book for the following year then we count that deposit as already paid - if you cancel under 21 days then again though the full cost is due we still hold that for next time - we don't want to lose you
As for our booking page not being an interactive form, this is a deliberate choice on our part. With such a page it is all too easy for people to book a holiday and pay for it without really considering what is best for them. We actually encourage you to get in contact and ask questions before you book.
Please send completed forms to us at Breton Bikes, 14 Grande Rue, 22570 Plelauff, France
Our main season begins with the week of the 19th May and finishes with our two-week led trip beginning on the 15th September, outside that period our Gite based (self-catering holiday cottage) holidays run all year - an option for people wanting to cycle with us outside out normal season (and at a very special low season price).
Lastly it's important that you are covered by insurance and the article here will explain, and provide a link to a site that will help a lot...
Note - We do not surcharge anyone once they have booked their cycling holiday, regardless of changes in exchange rate. What you see here is what you will pay.
CAMPING - The prices in Pound Sterling for the 2013 season are as follows. Remember holidays include all hire, maps routes and full backup. If you are camping we do NOT pay campsite fees (including 'Fixed-Centre') as if these were pre-paid you would be forced to follow the route exactly, and so lose much of the flexibility of the cyclecamping option. The cost of campsites varies between £1 and £5 per adult per night, but if you budget for £25 per adult per week you won't be far off.
GITE - just add up the cost as if for camping and add £400
HOTELS - Including all hire, routes, maps, back-up etc and based on Bed and Breakfast accommodation and assuming everyone will be sharing a double room* with others in your family/group. We don't include evening meals because if we did it would lose you the flexibility of eating where and when you wanted, but all hotels will provide an evening meal (or there's a nearby restaurant) for around e20 or less if you do wish to eat in. This is important when comparing our prices with other cycletour companies. If you add about £150/175 euro to our prices you will have a reasonable basis for comparison with companies offering evening meals (but inevitably inferior bikes)- this allowing for a 25 euro meal a night i.e. far from the lowest price on a menu...
Our cancellation conditions are the most generous in the business. If you have to cancel we keep the deposit BUT it can be held over for any holiday in the future - so it is not lost. Only if you cancel less than 21 days before the date of your holiday is the full cost forfeit but we are happy to supply an invoice for your cancellation insurance, something we strongly recommend. Holiday insurance generally is essential for your (and our) peace of mind - see 'Insurance'
*Add £140 per person for any in your party who will be in a single room.
