Safe Lodging During the Coronavirus
As our tours get going again we are receiving many questions about safe lodging.
One of the most common questions we’ve seen and we expect to hear more is the safety of our accommodations? Are they safe? Are they even open?
The first thing to know is that we are in regular contact with our accommodation partners, and the take your safety as seriously as we do. The good news is that we already worked with vendors who value our guests’ experience and want everyone to have a safe and happy experience. That said, we are keeping up with who is open and their precautions in light of COVID-19.
Hotels are slowly opening across our European and US destinations. Each country and region has its own reopening program and schedule, therefore it is a challenge to keep up with it all. For example, as of mid-June, France still has a 14-day quarantine period for people entering the country. But that is limited to only certain countries and they are closed to others. Italy is still waiting to let people into the country. The US is slowly opening, some areas quicker than others.
Nearly every hotel, B&B, and other lodging options in our DIY Tour Packets are doing amazing things to support their guests during these confusing times. One of our favorite accommodations in Asheville is open, but they are only offering to-go breakfast and they aren’t offering housekeeping during your stay. This is an excellent lodging option that you won’t regret even with sit-down meals. The Red House Inn in Brevard is open and they are offering social distance check-in and breakfast.
These partners are also asking if bike vacationers are acting responsibly while on holiday. Keeping everything safe will take effort from everyone involved from hoteliers to guests to the varied staff. We know everyone has the same goal for a safe stay.
