We feel is it absolutely necessary and you are required to have a valid insurance policy in pace in agreement with our booking Terms and Conditions.
With the UK's departure from the EU your EH111 card no longer covers medical care. You'll also want insurance against other circumstances such as bike theft, damage or cancellation for personal reasons. We recommend Yellow Jersey. When booking with MTB Beds you will receive a discount code for a 10% off in your MyBooking area info.
In light in the current/recent Coronavirus outbreak we also strongly recommend insurance once again so there are several avenues to pursue if a claim is necessary for any reason due to disaster, disease etc. Some policies doe not cover for this but we believe this will change in the future so always ask the question.
Check in is from 15h.
Check out is at 10h.
If you arrive earlier than 15h, we'll be there ready to welcome you in with a beer and show you about. You can get your bikes built up, go for a ride or explore the town. However facilities such as your room and showers may not be ready until 15h. We only ask you bear with staff and the cleaning team while they get the place tip top as guests are departing.
If you are leaving resort later than 10h, you are welcome to use the villa for storing your bags while you explore the town. We only ask that you understand the team will be trying to get the property ship shape for incoming clients, so please try and keep mess to a minimum and belongings tidy.
Please check your flight times with us before you book them to avoid long wait times at the airport, sometimes this is inevitable but we try to minimise it as much as possible with prior information from you. Some flights from Ireland and Scotland have late arrival times so please do check before booking them.
From experience of late arrival times in resort, after 22h, we strongly advise looking into flights that arrive the day before the Riders Week package starts (Arrive Saturday and check in to the villa on the Sunday) and either transferring to a hotel in Finale Ligure on the Saturday, or using an airport hotel in Nice. Something many clients have done and found it greatly reduced fatigue and stress of getting yourself together for 9h uplifts on the Monday morning after a late arrival.
Transfers are included to or from Nice or Genoa airport, on Sundays only. For any other day please enquire for a price.
Nice & Genoa are included at no extra cost, except for scheduled departures before 10h and for arrivals after 20h. Flights booked to depart or arrive after these times will incur a surcharge of €100 per van. Delayed flights arriving after 20h will not incur a surcharge
Wait times may occur and cannot be foreseen until all bookings are in our system, we will try and keep these to less than 1 hour but it maybe more, possibly up to 4 hours, though this is unlikely and has never occured before. Wait times may apply to arrivals and departures. IE We may drop clients at the airport 4 hours before they are required to be there for check in.
If you do not want to wait a private transfer or the train is an option for them. Fees are dependent on dates and availability.
Transfers to or from Milan Airports may incur a surcharge of between €350 & €500 per van, each way if this is not our primary pick up destination. IE If we have not changed the preferred airport in the booking process.
There is a €5 per person per week Tourist tax which has been introduced from 2019, this will be collected at the end of your stay in cash and is paid directly to the local council town hall.
