Our updated policies for Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Updated 16 March 2020

The health and wellbeing of people in our communities is of paramount importance and we support the authorities’ policies to combat the spread of COVID-19 and yet find a way to lessen the impact on the local and national economies. In order to act as a responsible corporate citizen:

  • We have cancelled all cycle tours through to 30 April 2020.
  • All GTP Giro d'Italia tours have been postponed until further communication with RCS.
  • We are closely monitoring and evaluating the evolving situation. GTP tours scheduled to depart after 30 April 2020 will be assessed on a case by case basis. Decisions will be based on the situation in each country and the travel restrictions put in place by various governments.
  • We will inform you of the status of your trip 30 days prior to departure. If the tour is confirmed to run, the full balance is due 21 days prior to the start day. If a GTP tour is cancelled 30 days prior, you will receive a credit of the funds paid (+100 euros) to a future GTP trip of your choice with a departure date before 31 December 2022.
  • We understand that due to the ongoing uncertainty, we have provided more flexibility to allow changes to your plans. From today, you are welcome to switch your current tour to any of our other tours with a departure date before 31 December 2022, with a credit of funds paid (+100 euros).
  • Furthermore, we have suspended collecting deposits and balances for our trips until further notice.

Updated 30 April 2020

Due to the continued uncertainty around the Covid-19 pandemic in Europe and globally, we have updated our policies for trips booked in 2020 and extending past the previously cited 30 April 2020. It is in the best interests of our guests that we are able to offer flexible booking conditions in such uncertain times.

  • For trips scheduled to depart before 30 August 2020: if you are not sure whether you want to travel, you may transfer the credit of the funds paid (+100 euros) to a future GTP trip with a departure date before 31 December 2022. We will continue to assess and confirm with you the status of your trip at least 30 days before departure. If the tour is confirmed to run, the full balance will be due 21 days before the departure day. If the tour is cancelled, you will receive a credit of the funds paid (+100 euros) to a future GTP trip of your choice with a departure date prior to 31 December 2022.
  • For trips beyond a departure date of 30 August 2020: we will continue to monitor the situation and will share any changes promptly.

In this ever-changing environment, we reserve the right to make changes to these policies as necessary.
