our passion

Who is VOS Travel?

VOS Travel is an independent Belgian tour operator and is since 25 years specialised in cycling, hiking, ski and snowboard holidays. We develop cycling and hiking programmes and work together with travel agencies and tour operators in the whole world. 
 

VOS Travel target group

VOS travel cycling holidays are suitable for the individual and recreational cyclist, as well as for the gourmet. A normal, daily shape is sufficient. Because of this recreational character, we also offer holidays for families with children, couples and active seniors. 
 

VOS Travel cycling holidays

Everyone with a healthy shape can easily participate in a cycling trip. Achievement doesn’t really count during these holidays, as the bicycle is the most convenient way to enjoy all the beautiful surroundings. A cycling holiday is an independent tour, and within the restrictions of the programme you’re completely free to take or leave what you want. In the morning you can start when it suits you, you cycle at your own pace, you stop when and where you like en you can be sure that the road book leads you via a clearly defined route to your booked accommodation place. We selected for you the most quiet and beautiful roads. 
 

Hotel holidays

VOS Travel always chooses the hotels for the cycling trips with a lot of care. All rooms have an en-suite bathroom and are generally in the 3 and four star category. You can savour the good regional kitchen with a generous breakfast and a 3 course menu. Vegetarian plates are also possible (if requested). During some trips you stay in different hotels and then we always take care of your luggage transport. If you like to transport your own luggage, we happily offer you a reduction at the value of the luggage transport. For other trips you will stay in 1 hotel and then you cycle in a number of looprides around the hotel. You also have the possibility to book an extra night before or after your trip. 


Also for children

Children can often accompany their parents during cycling holidays. They just need a little cycling experience and therefore we recommend those holidays where the distances are smaller, the terrain flatter and the cycling easier. 
 

Prices

All the prices are per person based on two persons sharing a room. We always state the surcharge for a single room. The outward journey and return trip is never in the price included. All prices include local tourist taxes and all booking/administrative costs. 
 

Reduction for children

Reductions when staying in a room with two full-paying adults (unless stated differently): 0 – 2 years: -100% ; 3 – 6 years: -50% ; 7 – 11 years: -25% ; > 12 years: -10%. 
 

Tour grades

VOS Travel cycling holidays attract the average recreational cyclist. We mention each time the length of a day trip and where you can shorten or extend a stage. All our cycle tours are graded to help you to determine if they are suitable for you. However it is only an estimation as there are many factors which determine a tour difficulty like wind direction, road surface, temperature and of course your fitness and preparation for your cycling holiday. 

The following classification is a global an d average indication:

fietsje_1
Easy biking in nearly flat landscape, some minor hills on some days. These tours are usually for people with little or no experience. The daily distances are around 55 km per day.

fietsje_2
Biking in flat to hilly areas. You may encounter some smaller climbs from time to time. For people with some experience. The daily distances are around 65 km per day.

fietsje_3
More strenuous biking trips in hilly regions where climbs cannot be avoided, but don't dominate the trips. Cycling experience in hilly regions is recommended. The daily distances are about 75 km. 
 

Road book and map

For each tour you receive a road book and a map. The road book gives you all the details about access directions, hotel(s) and a detailed description of the different stages. We also give you tourist information, history and geography of the region, and places of interest. The distance in detail and per kilometre is always described accurately. The road book also mentions where you can shorten or extend a stage. 
 

Rental bike

There are rental bikes from the type city bike available at all the destinations. They are equipped with sufficient gears, a saddle bag, a fix lock and a pump.

If you need to make changes to your booked holiday, we do however charge an administration fee of € 25 per booking.
