Dear Trek Traveler,

The world has changed so much and so quickly, but one thing remains: our commitment to providing you, our guests, exceptional hospitality to see the world by bike. We are optimistic as we look forward to exploring the wide-open spaces, taking in the fresh air on two wheels, and discovering cultural experiences. We genuinely appreciate the support from our guests and Trek Travel community. We’ve received numerous letters of encouragement and your positive energy keeps us going as we adapt to our new ways of travel.

“From the guides, to the scenery, the dining, and co-guests, this was a great trip! Do not let the current COVID-19 situation make you feel that a Trek Travel experience will somehow be less than before – this was my ninth trip with Trek, and this trip was as good as any that I have done prior. Trek Travel really is a step ahead of the rest with planning, processes, and execution. Their work with local companies and jurisdictions, combined with the covid-related processes put into place for cleaning, health checks, and sanitization, deliver an as safe as possible experience in today’s climate. Well done!” – Chris, Guest

“Thank you for the update, we appreciate your diligence, and look forward to our upcoming trips!” – Shawn, Guest

I want to personally update you about traveling with us, the steps we are taking to ensure a comfortable trip, and our updated offerings to provide ultimate flexibility when booking a trip with us.

We have always provided industry leading, award-winning equipment, experienced and certified guides, and expert route design. Additionally, we have enhanced our cleaning standards for hotel partners and Trek Travel equipment and are adjusting group settings to accommodate for adequate distancing. We are following guidelines recommended by health officials, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the World Health Organization (WHO). If you would like to read more about our efforts for the safety and well-being of our guests and guides, click here.

In addition to enhanced standards on trip, we have expanded our trip offerings and modified our Cancellation policy to provide ultimate flexibility in booking your trip. You can choose your dream trip from our expanded self-guided destinations, choose exactly what trip features you’d like from our A La Carte program, or you can take advantage of the improved private trip pricing on trips before June 1, 2021 for just 6 people. Each booking comes with our best-in-class cancellation policy that allows for modifications of your booking up to just 48 hours before your 2020 trip departure. Looking to plan your trip for 2021? We’ve recently released our new 2021 dates and expanded offerings so you can start planning your dream trip.

As the situation continues to evolve around the globe, we realize that plans made today may need to be adjusted tomorrow. As always, our trips are guaranteed to run if permitted. However, we must adhere to government travel restrictions and local authority guidelines. Therefore, we are monitoring all trips on a rolling 30-day basis prior to trip start date (or sooner if necessary) and making adjustments. Any updates to our itineraries will be communicated promptly via our website and email.

As always, if you have specific questions, please reach out to us at 866-464-8735. Below, you will find updates about our trip statuses and cancellation policy.
