Prices in Sterling
Here you will find our prices in Sterling - based on the current exchange rate of approximately 1.20 Euro to the Pound. We guarentee that there will be no surcharges regardless of changes in the exchange rate (and are the only company to do so). Because of the fall of Sterling our prices have had to rise especially hotel-based tours (because we pay hotels in Euro) but we have reduced the cost of our camping and gite based tours by 10% for 2017.
If you send an email or call us to confirm a booking we will hold your places for a week pending the arrival of your deposit. The Deposit is £75 per adult, and £50 for under 18's. Payment can be in the form of Cheque, bank transfer or card payment via the Paypal system - please email for details.
For hotel holidays ONLY please add £145 per person for any in your party who will be in a single room.

What do you get for your money...
CAMPING - The prices 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 2 and 8 Euro per adult per night, but if you budget for 40 Euro per adult per week you won't be far off.
HOTELS - Include 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 if you do wish to eat in. This is important when comparing our prices with other cycletour companies in France. If you add about 200 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...
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 just confirm by email and we will send you a booking form to fill in or use the form here - (it's NOT interractive - you need to physically cut-and-paste) 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 (7 nights - 8 days) but for 2017 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, direct bank transfer to our UK account or card via the Paypal system.
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.
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.
Cancellations and Holiday Insurance
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 covering your stay in France is essential for your (and our) peace of mind - see 'Insurance'. If your holiday insurance refuses to cover for you we have a special policy whereby though you do not get back your payment it is not lost to you and you can therefore use it to come later in that, or following years - we really don't want to lose you...
