Questions & Réponses

  • What biking level is the Passau to Budapest tour?

    The tour is mostly flat and only sometimes slightly hilly. The Austrian section follows well-maintained and equipped cycling paths, in Hungary you will often cycle on country back and side roads. Upon entering and leaving cities there is traffic that must be closely observed.

  • Can I bring along my own bicycle?

    Yes, you may. On most tours this has no bearing on the total cost of the trip, however, please mention this at time of booking. Sometimes an additional charge may be requested for the bicycle when transferring from one place to another.

  • What will happen should I encounter problems along the way?

    Luckily, this rarely occurs, since our bicycles are virtually new and well-maintained. Nevertheless, should you encounter a problem, then a quick phone call to our local agent will be sufficient. He shall ensure that you are back on your bike as soon as possible and, should it be necessary, you can exchange your bike through him. We assume that you are able to fix a flat tire yourself, and for this purpose, we will provide you with a repair kit and bike pump.

  • What can I expect of the hotels along the way?

    For our trips, we generally utilize good 2-3 star hotels with a bathroom in each room. The accommodations vary a great deal, ranging from a simple Bed & Breakfast to a very luxurious hotel and from a family hotel to a former cognac estate.

  • How is the luggage transported and when does it arrive?

    The luggage is transported by van and must stand ready for delivery by approx. 9 a.m. and will be at the next hotel by approx. 4 p.m.
