Exodus Travels is launching a booking incentive for self-guided tours for summer 2022. For every traveller an agent partner books onto an Exodus self-guided walking or cycling tour between 02JUN and 30SEP 2022, for travel at any time, agents receive a USD $200 travel credit to use towards their own Exodus self-guided trip.
According to Exodus, demand or self-guided trips has “sky-rocketed” since the start of the pandemic, with the tour company reporting an increase of approximately 20 per cent in inquiries and bookings. In response, Exodus has more than 200 Self-Guided Walking and Cycling tours to choose from, with 100 added since MAR 2020 alone.
Guests looking into a self-guided tour can enjoy flexibility in terms of dates, booking windows, pace of travel, and activities. In addition, travellers can adventure at a pace that suits them – whether it’s slow one day and fast the next, or anything in between. This goes for the experiences as well: travellers can pick and choose sightseeing spots as they wish, skipping some to linger over lunch longer, or leaving extra early to fit more in. Exodus notes that each tour features historic hotels and local food and wine experiences.
The in-depth trip notes, with kilometre-by-kilometre details, guide travellers throughout their journey, with information such as meal recommendations, rest spots, excursion routes, and notes on places of interest all included. Hotel bookings are all done for guests, and Exodus transport the luggage between accommodations, to provide both ease of travel and the support of local suppliers.
Exodus Travels’ self-guided trips span across Europe as well as a growing list of other destinations including Bermuda.
Highlighted Self-Guided Trips

And finally, 14 hotel nights with swimming pool, tennis court, panoramic ocean views and food.
Cycling Valencia and the Orange Blossom Coast – 7 nights in Spain, moderate activity level
A tour for those who love cycling, history, food and wine. This program begins with a two-night exploration of the city of Valencia, known for its blend of historic and modern buildings, before departing by bike through the Albufera wetlands where rice was first grown in Europe and the famous ‘paella’ dish so typical of Spain was created, and along the Spanish coastline, with sunshine and ocean breezes propelling travellers forward. Highlights include the thermal spas of Montanejos with its clear mineral waters; the Sierra de Irta Marine Park; and cycling along the River Millars to the Orange Blossom Coast with views of the Mediterranean.
