Terms & Conditions
Pricing & Payments
Prices on Vago Cycling website are displayed in € per person, include taxes and are based on double occupancy. For those guests who don’t wish to share their room a Single Supplement will be applied. This supplement varies depending on the tour and can be found on each individual tour page. For those guests who do not wish to cycle (non-riders), quotation will be provided on a case by case basis.
The “Price From” listed on this website refers to a specific tour, date, hotel lineup, and group size. Actual tour prices may differ from the price listed. The delayed arrival to one tour or the early departure from it give guests no right to price adjustment or refund. After your booking request has been received and confirmed by Vago Cycling you will be sent a final quotation. A given price quote is valid for 7 days and, after this period, is subject to repricing. All prices and quotes are subject to verification by Vago Cycling staff.
In order to accept a quotation and confirm a reservation guests are requested to pay a 25% deposit or the whole amount of the given price.
In order to confirm your reservation and to secure your participation to a Vago Cycling trip you are requested to pay a 500€ deposit. For private and custom tours the requested deposit may vary.

The remaining balance of the total amount is due 60 days prior to the departure date. For reservations made within 60 days of the tour’s departure, the whole payment is due at time of booking.
If final payment is not received by 15 days past the final payment deadline your reservation is subject to cancellation and no refund will be due. At any time Vago Cycling reserves the right to apply a 150€ late payment fee.
Payments must be in €, and can be made by credit card (via Stripe payment link) or by bank wire. We do not accept cash.
