All reservations with Thomson Bike Tours are subject to the following conditions:

Advance Reservation

At the start of the season we open up our Advance Reservation System for certain trips. An advance reservation accompanied by a $100 deposit ensures priority booking status when the trip details are announced later in the year.

When the trip details are finalized we contact everyone on the advance reservation list and offer them priority booking before opening up bookings to the general public. If we have more advance reservations than we have available spots we will process the advance reservations on a first-come, first-serve basis (based on the date the advance reservation was made).

To confirm an advance reservation a FIRM booking must be placed accompanied by an additional $500 deposit (or additional $200 deposit on short-duration trips). To cancel an advance reservation a cancelletion request must be submitted in writing within 15 days of the trip details being published. The $100 advance reservation deposit will be immediately refunded for any cancellation received within this 15-day period.


Deposit

To reserve a Thomson Bike Tours trip a deposit of $500 per person is required. A reservation will not be considered to be finalised until this deposit is received. Please note that on some trips of shorter duration the deposit is reduced to $200.
