Point to Point Holidays
With a Point to Point tour you travel from A to B during the course of the holiday. Most good tour operators now provide 'van support' that doubles up as transport for your luggage, as well as a welcome rescue option if you fall ill or the hills become too much.
The advantage of Point to Point tours is that each day starts with a new route and over the course of a week or more you can experience some varied riding, scenery and accommodation.
Just be aware that each day demands a set mileage limit to get to the next stop, so ensure that you pick a tour that is a suitable grade (see the Grading page) for your fitness and cycling ability. You don't want to spend all holiday in the support van!

Single Base Holidays
With Single Base holidays you stop in the same place for the duration of the break. These sorts of holidays will be located in areas rich with cycle routes and trails so that each morning you can set off in a different direction and experience a new ride.
The advantage of Single Base holidays is that they can be more relaxed. If you don't fancy riding on a particular day there is no requirement to do so. Some companies also offer options for non-riding partners, which can be popular if you only take one holiday a year.
The downside to a Single Base holiday is that if you don't like the area, or if the riding available is too strenuous / easy there's not much you can do about it!
