Tips for your arrival
Your arrival options and our transfer service
The arrival and departure is self-directed for all cycling and hiking tours. We have planned the tours so that the starting points and destinations are easily accessible by train, bus or car. Many of our cycling and hiking tours can be started daily. You are neither bound to a certain date nor to a travel group.
FOR THE CAR
Arrival with the train
We recommend booking a train ticket, which we will gladly do for you. Here you can choose between the flexible price and the "Sparpreis" fare.
With the cheaper Sparpreis fare you are bound to the train and a cancellation is not possible. The Flexpreis fare is not bound to the train and can be cancelled free of charge up to 1 day before the 1st day of validity of the ticket.
A seat reservation and the City-Ticket are included in both fares. The ticket can be booked 6 months in advance. We will gladly inform you about the price on request.
Arrival with the car
In most cases it is possible to park your vehicle at the start or destination hotel for the duration of your active tour. The binding reservation of a parking space for your vehicle by AugustusTours is unfortunately not possible. In your travel documents, which we will send you in good time before your arrival, you will receive the contact information for your hotels and you can use this information to inquire about a possible reservation of a parking space for your car at the hotel in question.
In most cases, parking spaces are subject to a fee. Parking fees are not part of the travel service and are always paid on site directly at the hotel.
More Options for your Arrival
Most of the starting points of our cycling and hiking tours can be reached not only by car or train. Thus, among other things, the arrival by plane or by long-distance bus is possible. Alternatively, you can also book a rental car to get to the starting point of your cycling or hiking trip.
True to our motto "AugustusTours active travel – as individual as you!", we are happy to offer you an exclusive transfer service on a large number of AugustusTours original tours and our partner tours.
We will pick you up directly from your accommodation in our comfortable minibuses and take you and your luggage (and bikes) back to the starting point of the tour (or to the starting point of your active holiday).
This is an exclusive transfer. We will pick you up from your accommodation (start or destination) at the time and date of your choice and take you to your start or destination hotel.
Our transport vehicles are preset to standard bikes. In the event of deviations (e.g. wide tyres or carbon frames) and/or special bikes (e.g. (foldable) tandem, handbike), please let us know when you book your trip.
On some journeys it is possible to take your four-legged friend with you on the transfer. For the transfer, it is essential that you bring a suitable dog crate or a dog harness with a seatbelt for your dog. Please inform us about taking your dog with you when you book your holiday.
For some tours we offer you a group transfer at a specific time on a specific day of the week. Together with other active travel customers, you and your luggage (and your bike) will be transported back to your starting hotel (or to the starting point of your tour) at a favourable price after or before the tour.
Further information can be found in the detailed information of the respective active tour in the price section. Depending on the type of transfer, these are coach or passenger prices (with limited availability).
