The Covid-19 virus has made the last years stressful and many people are therefore still hesitant to travel for fear of being stranded or losing out. Bike Switzerland has decided to make this aspect of your trip as uncomplicated as possible by updating our cancellation policy.
- In the event of COVID related travel restrictions that prohibit you from coming to Switzerland, we will provide you with a full refund up to 15-days before Day One of your trip. In the event of last-minute restrictions (14 days or less), we will give you a full refund minus a 3% fee if you’ve paid by credit card. If you prefer, we can credit the entire amount towards a future trip.
- Should anyone in your party contract COVID and need to cancel, we will provide everyone in your party with the option of receiving a full refund minus a 3% fee if you’ve paid by credit card. If you prefer, the entire amount can be credited to the following year. You will be asked to forward test results documenting the sickness.
Cancellations for reasons other than those listed above will fall under our regular cancellation policy found at the bottom of our FAQ page.
