The Corona virus is on everyone's lips, here we keep you informed.
The situation in Europe is easing visibly as vaccination progresses; we assume that it will be possible to travel largely everywhere again in the 2022 season. However, the freedom to travel is increasingly limited to vaccinated and recovered persons (2-G). There are the first ship agencies, hotels and tour operators that only accept 2-G in exchange for exemption from mask requirements and other restrictions in houses and ships.
If you are planning a boat & bike tour or a cross-border bike-hotel tour, you currently have to assume the 2-G rule. If you do not want to be vaccinated, contact us in case of doubt before booking.
As the Corona situation can also change again, the question of travel cancellation may arise. You can always cancel your trip, but free of charge under certain conditions only, which have developed since 2020:
A trip is not feasible or reasonable due to exceptional circumstances at the holiday destination.
A cancellation free of charge is therefore possible in these cases:
- The guest's country of origin issues a travel warning for the holiday region
- The holiday destination classifies the region of origin as a risk area
- Travel to the holiday destination is not possible due to government measures (border closures)
- The trip is unreasonable (quarantine obligation on arrival or return)
Important: these reasons must apply to the individual start of the trip. In practice, a period of 3-5 weeks before the start of the trip has been established for the determination.
In these cases, we will reverse the trip and refund the payment made. Of course, we will also be happy to make you an offer for a rebooking to another date/region or a travel voucher.
As a tour operator, we can be a little more accommodating when it comes to hotel trips, hotel rooms can be filled up again more quickly. With boat trips there are mainly external costs from shipping companies or ship agencies which we have to pass on.

Interesting facts from third party:
The coronavirus is new, the legal regulations concerning travel law are therefore partly unclear. The Centre for European Consumer Protection has produced a good summary.
According to current knowledge, the virus is not particularly contagious even with the new mutations (e.g. compared to measles) and far less dangerous than many pathogens, that people in other regions have to deal with. Therefore: Caution yes - panic no.
