Scottsdale, AZ –Discover France Adventures, the leaders and specialists in France for cycling and hiking tours, announces that groups of four or more can now enjoy group discounts on self guided cycling tours that heretofore were only available to groups of 10 or more. The amount of savings increases with the group size.
For example, on the Self Guided Provence Vineyards & Lavender Tour, the posted per person rate is 1,335 euros (accommodations in European category 3 and 4 star hotels). If four persons book and travel together, a discount of 55 euros per person is possible, adding up to a group savings of 220 euros, or about $320.
This offer is valid for bookings through Oct. 31 for the 2011 season only.
Loren Siekman, Managing Director, said the impetus to provide these discounts reflects the increase in inter-generational travel.
“We felt it made sense to offer discounts starting at groups of four rather than maintain the industry standard at 10. We want to make it affordable for families to travel together and not limit discounts to just large bike clubs and/or corporate events,” said Siekman.
The self-guided, open scheduling option has been well received by the public. “We’ve seen a huge surge of interest in self-guided offerings. With the slow economy people can still tour and go on vacation but often at half the price and with more privacy and than a group guided tour with fixed departure dates,” said Siekman.
