Even tailoring your search down to, for example, “Mallorca beginners training camp” leaves you with over half a million results. So whilst being spoilt for choice should be good news, how on earth do you know where to start? And more importantly, how can do you know if they are any good? How can you be sure that it is going to offer what you are actually looking for or is it just a large tour operator adding “cycling holiday” to sell a trip because there is a bicycle hire shop in the resort?
Trying to find the perfect holiday by trawling the depths of Google is frustrating and inefficient. We just want all the best options, all in one place where we can also see what our peers thought of it.
The aim of Cycling Holidays is to offer a carefully tailored, genuinely useful resource for people looking for their next cycling or triathlon holiday anywhere in the world. The site is a database of independent tour operators, all of whom have been approved by us before their listing has been added. People can then read the helpful feedback that other users have left. At present we have over 300 listings and this number is growing every week.
As a site user you can search by discipline, location and rating to help narrow down your search. Then create a list to save your favourites and add notes as you go.
For the holidays you have already taken, leave them a review. The rating system is another standout feature of the website as we know, and value, the importance of honest customer feedback. With shared passions come shared priorities for a holiday – we want to know about the expertise of the coaches, the quality of the roads and the suitability of the bike facilities. Sharing your feedback helps other visitors feel confident in seeing through the marketing and buzzwords to find the right holiday for them.
And if you are an independent tour operator, we’d love to hear from you too! Chances are we may have already created a listing for you as we liked the look of your holiday. If we’ve not discovered you yet, you can submit your listing and invite your customers to rate their past holiday experiences. According to Trip Advisor, nearly 90% of travellers say reviews are influential in choosing where to book.
So where’s the catch? Well, there isn’t one. We don’t charge users to create an account, nor do we charge anyone to list their holiday on our website. Smaller, newer companies rarely have the resources or budget to make it onto page 1 on Google but just think of all the hidden gems you could be missing, especially if you’re one of the 75% of people who never scroll past the first page of Google search results. We want this to be a genuinely helpful website to save you time and confusion with booking your holiday. All the information you need in one clear place, with real guest reviews that address what matters to you.
What are you waiting for, visit Cycling Holidays by Yellow Jersey and find your perfect trip today.
