There is no obligation to compensate in the following cases:

In extreme weather conditions or emergencies, we may need to adjust, interrupt, reschedule or cancel the route. This is no reason for a refund.

We can arrange taxis for you (and probably your bicycles) to avoid heavy rainfall, thunderstorms or other extreme weather conditions. However, these extra transfers are for your own expense.
We recommend everyone to wear a helmet.
In Spain, the use of the helmet is mandatory for anyone under 16 years old.

We work with several rental companies for the bicycles.
In some cases, they may ask for a deposit and/or a small charge, which covers any damage and/or theft.
You may be asked to identify yourselves.
DEPOSIT AND ID AT CHECK IN
Hotels are obliged to register their guests and may, therefore, ask for your ID.
Some hotels (like hotel Acteon Valencia) ask at check-in for a credit card as a deposit for extra services like meals and drinks in their restaurant.
This is part of their policy and nothing to worry about. If you don't use any of these extra services, nothing will be charged from your credit card.
For the execution of our excursions and tours we work with local carriers and tour operators.
They are primarily responsible and accountable for the quality and safety of their services.
