Our Favourite Top 5 Affordable Cycle Holiday Destinations



Here at Bikecation our philosophy is that you should decide where you go on a cycle holiday and at what budget. We are, after all, a search engine for your ideal cycle holiday. 

Know you want to ride your bike somewhere abroad? Don't mind where you go, but are looking to go riding somewhere great, but for a great value for money price? Want to bag yourself a a bargain? Below is our guide to our best affordable destinations and our recomended hotels there. 

Our top tip: Fly mid- week to get the best value for money for flights. Look for anti-social times to fly to save even more money. 

Costa Dorada - Spain

With Ryan Air flying cheaply to Reus airport, a short 20 minute transfer to Salou or Cambrils, and plentiful cheap accommodation outside of the main holiday season of August and July, Costa Dorada is a great destination for a budget cycle holiday. Prices can be as low as £220 PP for a week in October, including flights, if you take advantage of Ryan Air's Thursday flights. Check out the Hotel Regente Aragon for great value twin rooms or the Hotel Calypso for bargain triple rooms. 

Best Time to go: March - June or September - November

Mallorca - Spain

You can nearly always bag yourself a bargain stay in Mallorca. Lots of accommodation options and plentiful cheap flights (especially if you go very early or very late mid-week); means that it's the classic destiantion for a budget cycle holiday. Look to stay in the Aparthotel Duva and Spa for a good budget room in Port de Pollensa. Prices can be as low as £275 PP for a week including flights. 

Best Time to go: March - June or September - November

Lourdes - France

Lourdes is another destination to benefit from having a Ryan Air airport close by. Cheap flights, a twenty minute transfer and plentiful hotel rooms (Lourdes has the most hotel rooms outside Paris), make this the budget option to take on the big climbs of the Tourmalet and Hautacam amongst many others. Most hotel rooms in Lourdes are very similarly priced and our pick would always be the Hotel Alba.

Best Time to go: May-September

Rimini - Italy

Stay at the Ferretti Beach Hotel in Rimini after flying to Bologna, and you will stay on the beach front, and get to ride Pantani country. Avoid the expensive summer months and Rimini is a great value for money destination. 

Best Time to go: March - June or September - November

Costa Brava - Spain

Lloret de Mar on the Costa Brava is our last choice for a budget cycle holiday. Avoid the more expensive town of Girona and stay in the Aparthotel Costa Encantada. Flights and a week's accommodation starts from £225 PP for a late season break in October. 

Best Time to go: March - June or September - October
