As in other European countries the euro is the local currency in Spain. Normally credit cards and international bank cards can be used without problems.
If you arrive by plane, our local agent and owner of Casa Camaleon welcomes you at the Airport of Alicante (if you booked the transfer). He’ll drive you by minibus to Castalla (+/- 30 min). It is also possible to cycle from the airport to Castalla. If you want to cycle, please let us know upon booking so Petro will bring the bikes with him. A beautiful route will take you from the airport along the Via Verdes to Castalla. Please let us know upon booking. At the end of your tour you get a transfer to the airport of Valencia (VLC).
For a successful cycling holiday it is necessary to have a good bike. If you bring your own bicycle check it carefully before departure. Pay special attention to tires, brakes and gears. Always bring a repair kit with you while you go cycling. When you bring your own bike, keep in mind that this tour leads you through hilly terrain so your bike needa at least 24 gears.
This package includes the transport of your luggage on day 3, 4, 5 and 6. We’ll ask you friendly but urgent to keep in mind to respect our luggage transport rules. You may offer 2 pieces of luggage with a maximum weight of 20 kg. Per piece the maximum weight is 15 kg.
Luggage items that weight more then 15 kg. may be refused by our transportation company!
The luggage transfer takes place between 10 am and 16 pm. Take care your luggage will be at the right location and ready for transport before 10 am. In most cases the luggage collecting point will be at the reception desk but please ask your host to ensure you leave it at the right place. Normally your luggage will be at the next accommodation before or at least at 16 pm.
Keep in mind that a helmet is obligatory in Spain! So except for the fact that wearing a helmet contributes to your own safety you avoid a ticket. Another important traffic rule in spain is the absolute precedence for pedestrians crossing a zebra. Local traffic will already stop when a pedestrian approaches a zebra crossing.
During your tour we advise to wear a cycling jersey which absorbs and drains off sweat. Depending on your bike we advise to wear cycle trousers with a seat pad. Furthermore: a helmet, sunglasses and a camera. We’re looking forward to see the pics you took on the way.
