How to reserve a motorcycle tour with CIMT

STEP 1: Decide which tour and which motorcycle you'd like to ride with a possible alternative motorcycle

STEP 2: email Francesco at with the name and dates of the tour you'd wish to attend. You will receive a precise quotation and a Tour Booking Form

STEP 3: Fill in the tour booking form and send it back to CIMT

STEP 4: Pay 10% of the total tour cost as booking deposit. This ensures you a place on the desired tour with the desired motorcycle.

STEP 5: Make a note of the Tour Closing date. This is usually 60 days prior to tour start date. 

STEP 6: After Closing date Francesco from CIMT will contact you to confirm the tour as starting or not. 

STEP 7: Freelance srl, CIMT's touring partners, will take the balance payment.

STEP 8: You will receive a joint tour preparation email about 30 days prior to tour start indicating precise location of meeting on tour start date, and other useful information about the tour. 

STEP 9: Show up on the day and enjoy the tour!! 


What happens if minimum participants isn't reached?

if by the Closing date of a tour the minimum quota of participants isn't reached there are several options open:

a) the tour is cancelled and the client will receive a full refund of the booking deposit. In this case nothing is owed to CIMT by the client, and nothing is owed from CIMT to the client.

b) the client has the option to go ahead and still do the ride in a "self guided" format at a lower price which takes into account the missing guide. The client will be supplied with accommodation, rental motorcycle, itinerary, maps, satnav GPS unit and will do the ride on his own, or together with other participants who also had their guided tour cancelled.

c) if the minimum quota of participants is only missed by a few people, CIMT can propose a payment integration to still run the tour as guided. The proposal will have to be accepted by all participants unanimously. The amount of this integration will be calculated by CIMT during the final deliberations about starting the tour or not. 


What happens if you need to cancel the tour?

This really depends on when you decide to cancel your participation:

if you cancel before 60 days prior to tour start the 10% booking fee will be held as credit for another tour up until the end of the season following the one you had intended to take the tour. 

if you cancel between 60 and 30 days prior to tour start you loose 50% of the value of the tour and 50% will be kept as credit for another tour up until the end of the following season.

if you cancel the tour with less than 30 days from tour start you loose the entire tour value

CIMT does not provide travel, medical nor cancellation insurance. This is something you should take care of at your end. We do not offer this, as in this way you are in better control of its costs and quality, and you will be in a stronger position to put in the claim. CIMT will be happy to support you with any paperwork you require for your insurance requirements.
