A $400 deposit per person is required with each registration. A second installment of $400 towards the trip payment is due on December 1 as specified in your trip Welcome Letter.
The final balance is due at least 75 days prior to the trip start. At Bike and the Like's option, non-payment of monies due may be considered a cancellation. We usually send payment-due reminders via e-mail, however, it is always the participant's responsibility to make timely payments.
Please keep us informed of changes to your e-mail as well as other personal information.
All tour cancellations by a participant must be in writing by e-mail and the date of cancellation will be the date of receipt of the e-mail. We maintain a waitlist for all trips and do our best to locate a replacement if cancellation of your booking becomes necessary. At no time, however, can we guarantee that we will be able to fill a cancelled spot.
In the unlikely event Bike and the Like should cancel a tour or program prior to the date of departure certain fees may be refunded.
If a tour is cancelled as a result of a force majeure event, all trip payments will be refunded less a $200 administrative fee per person. If a Bike and the Like tour is cancelled due to any reason other then a force majeure event, all trip fee payments will be refunded. A "force majeur event" is any event beyond the reasonable control of Bike and the Like, including but not limited to war, threat of war, sabotage, civil disturbance, acts of God, fire, accident, flood or explosion, sickness, contagion, epidemics, quarantine, Government intervention, travel bans and weather conditions.
COVID INTERRUPTION OF TOUR- Guests are required to submit to a Covid test if requested by captain of Flora Sailing. If a test shows a positive result, it is Flora Sailing policy that guest with positive result leave the tour/boat immediately. Bike and the Like is not responsible for any expenses incurred as a result of leaving the trip/boat early and no trip refunds are available.
Bike and the Like has no intention to cancel a tour unless BOTH our State Department has issued a "do not travel" advisory AND our destination country has closed to American travelers.
Refunds constitute full settlement in the event of cancellation of a tour; Bike and the Like is not responsible for airfares fees or other expenses incurred by a participant due to change in itinerary or tour cancellation. No refunds or discounts will be granted for a Participant arriving late or leaving a tour prior to the tour's conclusion.
Because it is necessary for Bike and the Like to adhere to its cancellation/refund policy and because unexpected things can happen to interrupt your plans, Bike and the Like finds it essential and thus asks all participants to secure Travel Insurance. For comparative analysis of Travel Insurance companies and policies we found Square Mouth to be helpful.
