Coronavirus (COVID-19): Travel Information Updates

Peak Tours COVID Policy

Hi everyone,

Whilst we haven’t seen the end of the pandemic just yet, we are able to live much more normal lives and things appear to be getting back to normal. We aren’t quite there yet but we are getting there.

Our current policy is that if you catch Covid just before a tour starts then we would still ask that you don’t join the tour. Likewise if you test positive for Covid during a tour then we would request that you leave the tour so that any further transmission is reduced. In this instance then we will check the rules at the time for the country that you are in as you may need to isolate.

I appreciate that you will be disappointed if you can’t join the tour due to Covid and that you may have incurred expenses and will lose the cost of the tour. It is for this reason that an insurance policy that covers cancellation due to Covid is essential.

Insurance
We strongly recommend that you take out adequate insurance for your tour which, as an absolute minimum should cover accident & medical expenses if you are travelling outside the UK, cover for your bike and belongings and cancellation cover in the event that you have to cancel your tour for unforeseen circumstances.

We’ve partnered with Yellow Jersey and agreed a 10% discount off their bicycle and cycle travel insurance products, both available on a short term or annual basis for all our clients. Use the code PEAK10 in the checkout to claim the discount. We would recommend that you also take a look at what other products are available.

Bicycle Insurance
Across three separate tiers of insurance, you can cover your bike(s) for theft, crash and accidental damage as well as third party liability, legal expenses and some personal accident cover. Depending on the level of cover, you can also have worldwide cover as well as cover for sportive, races and much more. They’ll even cover your bike in transit. You can see prices here.

Travel Insurance
This will cover your medical expenses and repatriation if you were to have an accident while riding your bike on one of our tours. It will also cover you for all the usual things you’d expect from a standard travel insurance such as lost luggage, flight delays, cancellation cover and also Covid Cancellation. You can see prices here.

If you have any questions about our Covid policy then please contact us on info@peak-tours.com or by telephone on 01457 851462.

All the very best
