Along those lines, we've created a Future Travel Deposit program. For a limited time, we are offering Gift Certificate Trip Deposits with a bonus $100USD credit added as a thank you for your trust and support. Basically, when you purchase a Gift Certificate Trip Deposit for $500USD (our standard new booking deposit amount), we will credit your account an additional $100USD. So, you’ll have a total of $600USD credited to your account for future use to book any new trip. You can use them yourself or gift them to others. You don't need to pick any trip or travel dates yet. It’s a completely flexible credit that you have up to two years to use! You can also purchase more than one per person (for yourself or to later gift) and we’ll hold them on your file for you. If interested, just email to express interest in a Gift Certificate and we'll organize it for you.
This program supports us and keeps travel alive in all of our hearts.
While we have an expansive reach with our tours, I have maintained an intentionally small core team here at BikeHike. We decidedly operate as a small business in many ways. That way, we’ve always been able to stay more connected to you, our valued travellers and friends. And that also means that we personally and very directly feel every bit of your support and it is all very deeply appreciated.
Our partners on the ground in our destinations will also be thankful for your support. It has been heartbreaking to witness the number of businesses that have seen impacted in our destinations, especially in the many small communities, where delicate local economies have been built around these tours. On our trips, we engage with small businesses and establishments with the focus of keeping the money within these communities. One cancelled trip has many ripple affects along the supply chain within these local communities. All of these individuals and small businesses with whom we connect you on our trips will be so grateful to hear about your support and faith in future visits.
At the end of the day, there’s value for all of us in having something to which we can look forward...
So that's an update on our current mindset over here. As always, I hope you’ve found some inspiration here in my update, and we all truly thank you for your ongoing trust and support.
From the BikeHike family to yours, stay healthy and well.

And here's a reminder of where in the world it all began for us, where our spirit of adventure began. This video always makes us smile, and reminds us why we do what we do, just as it reminds us why we'll steer through this Coronavirus situation. In the end, nothing can ever infect, or take away, our spirit of adventure.
