Introducing Group Travel and Winter Getaway ToursPosted On: Dec 8, 2018
We’re excited to introduce our newest offering in motorcycle travel products – Group Travel.
Who doesn't want more adventures and trips in their lives? Many of us are short on vacation time. So, we at EagleRider put all the wishes we hear from the riders who rent and tour with us and created a new product series called Group Travel.
Riders with a group of five (5) or more bikes can now embark on their own private journey with all the structure and support needed to ride in the USA without sacrificing the freedom that comes with the open road.
What is Group Travel?
In short, group travel is a simple and affordable way for groups of friends to elevate their motorcycle riding experience by adding:
- Late model bike rental
- Motorcycle friendly hotels – hand-selected by EagleRider based on 25 years of touring
- Language specific on-road concierge or support driver
- Luggage transportation
- On-road support
- Attraction and event bookings
- EagleRider mobile tour guide App
- Expert Route Planning
- Digital hotel vouchers
- Complete digital itinerary and route
Let's take a minute to walk through how Group Travel is different from rentals and guided tours.
With a traditional rental, you get a late model motorcycle of your choices and rental jackets/helmets available at any of our locations. You're the one creating the route and arranging everything for the trip. We just provide the bike and insurance/roadside assistance packages.
Note: This year we added 120+ locations in the USA in alliance with Harley-Davidson Motor Company. See all of our rental locations here.
The next step up is a Self-drive tour, where you get a pre-planned route and all hotels packaged together with your bike. Our tour architects have 100+ years of combined experience. The EagleRider mobile app we provide you has the route and suggested daily stops pre-loaded.
Group Travel includes all of the above and a support van with a spare bike and a bi-lingual driver. Created for a group of 5+ riders in mind who are looking for a bit more support and guidance on the road, Group Travel is a cost-effective way to travel with friends. Pick your start city and end city and we'll build a route for your group.
You’ll find a huge benefit in not letting motorcycle storage capacity limit you and your friends from embarking on the ultimate USA riding experience.
For riders coming from all corners of the world to experience America, your very own bi-lingual on-road concierge that is fluent in your native language will make your ride more memorable and enjoyable.
If you’re traveling with someone special or a group of friends and want the same type of support to your rental, you can do so during the rental booking process on eaglerider.com and add a van as an add-on before you confirm your reservation.
Who is Group Travel best suited for?
- A group of 5 or more bikes that want to travel with the safety, security and comfort that comes with adding a support vehicle and on-road concierge
- Private Groups
- Incentive Groups
- Riders who prefer to travel with more than they can carry on a motorcycle
What’s a Winter Getaway Tour Series?
We created a series of short winter tours called Winter Getaways where you can experience group travel when you don't have other riders to invite along.
On our Winter Getaway tours, you get to meet other riders, build friendships, experience new places for the first time and have the trip of a lifetime. Experience the freedom of riding as a group or on your own (if you wish) and get the enhanced support of an on-road concierge along the way.
How is Group Travel different from Guided Tours?
Guided Tours are usually an all-in-one package where you have a few more things included in the tour package:
- Lead guide
- Pre-planned stops each day
- All fuel during the trip
- Welcome dinner and farewell party
- Tour jacket, yours to keep
- Group of up to 15 bikes riding together
A guided tour takes all the stress away from pre-planning and organizing each day. You show up every morning, ride the bike of your choice, have a great time with the group, and experience new places and destinations.
Now that you've entered the giveaway, explore our rental models and pre-planned routes for Self-Drive and Guided tours. We can modify any of our routes and create a custom experience just for you. Reach out to us if you would like to talk about your dream ride. Booking your trip online is a quick and secure process and you can pay the deposit instead of a full amount for trips 60 days in advance or more.
