Cyclists as Customers: Bicycle tourism is steadily increasing in Sweden and there are many who want to book ready-made bicycle packages or are looking for bicycle-friendly accommodation when they are on a bicycle trip. Both Swedes and cyclists from other countries. At Sweden by Bike you can market your own bike package or accommodation easily and efficiently. The guests' feedback is very important, and we have developed a custom structure for public customer reviews linked to all bicycle packages.
Cycling package: If you have your own bike package that includes overnight stay, good food and suggested tours, you can post it at Sweden by Bike at a one-time cost of SEK 1200 plus VAT. You get your own presentation page, we help with copytext and pictures. In addition, you get access to an advanced web platform that is effective in search engine hits. Your bike package becomes searchable and falls into our categories (for example Family Friendly or Gourmet). The price should be the same as if the customer is booking directly with you, and for each booking we ask for a commission of ten percent.
Bicycle friendly accommodation: If you want to join us as Bicycle-friendly accommodation, you get your own presentation page. We help with copytext and images. You get access to an advanced web platform that is effective when it comes to search engine hits. It costs SEK 1,200 plus VAT per year to participate. We do not charge a commission, the customer is referred directly to you and the contact information you provided for booking. Our bicycle-friendly accommodation is bed & breakfast, hostel, guest house, cabins / camping and hotels that find it extra fun when guests come cycling. They are located near bike paths and bike destinations in different parts of the country. From cornfields and apple trees in Skåne to rippling streams and the expanses of the mountain world. As an extra bonus, you will also be included on Norstedt's printed cycle map (the map series currently covers Götaland, large parts of Svealand and the area around Siljan).
- Important with a good location and special service for cyclists:
- Safe bicycle storage
- Ability to borrow tools for easier repairs
- Washing and drying facilities for clothes
Closing cliché: It sounds like a cliché, but Sweden is fantastic. It is best seen when you are out cycling. You travel in the middle of the landscape, feel smells, see colors, hear the whisper of the wind in the trees. Sunshine, sometimes rain, and lots of fresh air. After a few miles on the roads or on forest paths, it is nice to get off and take in a nice place. Take a shower, maybe have dinner and sleep really well. Of course, your bike package and / or bike-friendly accommodation should be included on Sweden by Bike! You reach us via email email@example.com or phone 08-640 96 56.
