Information for Tour Operators

How and why would you want to engage with Cycle Tours Global?

Cycle Tours Global (CTG) is first and foremost a resource for tourists who want to cycle and cyclists who want to tour. Would you want your tours listed, shown and promoted directly and only to people who want your information?

Our mission is to promote cycle tourism as an environmentally, ethically and economically sustainable industry. We make as many options as possible, freely and easily available to the increasing number of people who visit our website every month - and so encourage and tempt people to holiday the right way (i.e. on a bike!).

The website is free for all users - cyclists and tour operators. Before you register, have a look for your tours - we may have already profiled them! In which case you can claim the account (using the green button on the right side of the tour profile page) to manage the listings yourself.

How often does CTG update tour listings

Constantly! The schedule is determined by the following preferences (contingent on previous update dates):

  1. Premium listings (current)
  2. Premium listings (expired)
  3. Free listings by registered tour operators
  4. Other free listings
So why should you bother updating your own listings?
  • The order of results is determined by the date of update/edit by the Tour Operator only (not by CTG)
  • Your updates can be timely, not just when best fits the CTG schedule
  • Tours will be flagged as updated by you for greater clout
