ROTH TOUR FAQ's
"I already have a race entry. Can I still do your tour package?" Yes. We offer the 5-night and 7-night tours even if you obtained a race entry online from Challenge Roth. Our new 7-night finish line tour offers premium accommodation steps away from the stadium.
"How long do I have to book the Roth race entry tour with you?" Our booking window for race entry lasts until September 1, or until all of our slots are sold out. Due to limited availability, we recommend booking with a deposit as soon as possible to guarantee your spot. Typically, we are 100% sold out by that date. For those holding a race entry, we welcome you to join any tour while inventory is available.
"Can I bring my whole team or club?" YES. The beauty of booking with us is we can accommodate large groups, ensuring that every team or club member gets guaranteed race entry. Make this your team's feature race for 2019 and we can help you with special group pricing and services.
"Can I bring my friends and family? What is the cost for my guests?" Friends and family (Spectators) are very welcome on our tour! We put on a comprehensive race day spectator tour that allows them to see the swim, bike, run and finish line area. We transport and guide your loved ones from point to point all day in this logistically complex event. With most of the roads closed, and transitions miles apart, our spectator tour is the best way to see the race. We provide transport, food, drinks, and a special area of the stadium for our group. Spectators and Athletes pay the same price for the Challenge Roth tour. Spectators enjoy all services and amenities, accommodations, etc. as athletes. Children age 3 or younger (age as of race day) travel with us for free. Babysitting is also available for families with small children.

We also offer post-race luggage storage in Munich that can be added on at checkout if you are doing further travels such as our Prague and Salzburg tour.
"Do you have a bike mechanic?" Yes. We have a U.S. based professional bike service manager that is onsite at our hotel during your stay. You can opt for our pro bike package that includes bike building, safety check, and repacking your bike after the race for $150. (Limited to 25 bikes; this sells out quickly, so please reserve the service at checkout so you don't miss out!)
"Can I rent a triathlon or road bike?" Yes. We partner with the best local bike shop in the area to ensure a high-quality inventory of carbon triathlon and road race bikes. Bring your helmet, shoes and pedals and enjoy a bike that comes complete with hydration system, spare, flat kit, nice wheels and bike fit based on your existing measurements. The fee for the week is about $550.
"What about travel insurance?" We strongly advise you take out travel insurance in the event you have to cancel your race tour. Changes and cancellations can be handled up until January 30, 2019 for the 2019 tour. After that date, all sales are final and no changes or refunds may be made, no exceptions. All $500 initial deposits are non-refundable, as they are used to secure your spot on tour. We have partnered with World Nomads to provide excellent coverage at budget-friendly prices.

"I'm not from the U.S. or the Americas region. Can I still gain entry and travel with you?" Yes! We primarily represent athletes from the Americas (Canada, United States, Mexico, and Central and South America), but as we are part of Challenge Roth Tours we are happy to assist you with your booking and make sure you are connected with the appropriate tour partner for your country. Let us know where you are from and we will get you into the Roth tour of your choice quickly!
"What are the payment terms?" We confirm your booking with a $500 initial non-refundable deposit per person (athlete or spectator). A second payment installment is collected on September 1, 2018 (half of your balance), with the final balance collected on November 1, 2018. You also have the option of paying in full at time of booking, or anytime prior to Nov. 1st.
"What if I have to cancel?" Please take travel insurance to mitigate your possible financial loss due to unplanned cancellation. Up until January 30, 2019, if you notify us in writing on or before that date, we can help you with a full refund, less your initial $500 deposit. AFTER Jan. 30, no cancellations, changes, or refunds are permitted. A lot can happen before race day, so don't lose your entire investment into Roth. In the very unlikely event that RaceQuest has to cancel the event, of course you receive a full refund from us.
