The First Step to a Holiday of a Lifetime

hcbannermasterword

H-C Travel – Welcome to the World’s best motorcycle holidays!

You’ve just taken the first step towards the holiday of a lifetime – please browse our site, don’t rush it, pace yourself, and then, make it happen.

We offer motorcycle tours and motorcycle hire on all 5 continents, and whatever your experience, whatever you want, and whatever your budget, we have something for you. From riding Route 66 on a Harley, climbing the highest pass in the Himalayas on an Enfield, offroading in Morocco, and adventure tours in Chile to and the sublime road riding in New Zealand, we do it all, and a lot more besides...

See our Tea & Spices Tour here and article here (PDF)

H-C Travel is the longest established international motorcycle tour operator in the UK (founded in 1994), and all of our holidays are covered legally and financially by our TTA membership and ATOL license. All our tours are also licensed or approved in the destination country. Our motorcycles are locally registered and insured, and if you are on a guided tour with us, our guides own the motorcycles, they aren’t hired or borrowed. Our guides are all experienced, and all live locally, so they really do know the area, the roads, the people, and the sights - to help you get the most out of your holiday. And as a professional travel company, we of course arrange flights and travel insurance and can offer you lots more besides – it’s your holiday, so let us do the work for you.

Road, adventure or offroad, hire only, self-guided or fully supported guided tours, it’s all here. And it is all backed by our many years of experience, and our award winning team. As one of our longest standing and regular customers, Ross, said ‘I ride with H-C Travel because I know I can trust them’. As the saying goes, H-C Travel is the original and the best!

Our US guided and self-guided tour programme can now be found at http://www.orange-and-black.co.uk. Our US bike rental programme is still here.
