the Concept  

 

Started off as a classic car organization in search of the most beautiful roads on the planet, Goldentimers is now offering a wide range of road trips, self-drive tours, guided expeditions and challenges, with almost any kind of vehicle that contains an engine and wheels.

In all our Tours you will participate with a vehicle to drive/ride yourself. Depending on the type of tour this can be your own vehicle or one of the many arrive-and-drive alternatives we have on offer. As a special feature, most of our self-drive tours will show some joint departure dates, open to a limited number of vehicles. These 'Tag-Along' tours are listed in the Club Calendar and entries are limited to adults only. However, you can also opt to undertake an individual tour without any restriction on a Free Departure date.    

Although licensed by CCRA/TRUE, Goldentimers is not a typical tour operator nor travel agent. The Goldentimers International Booking Platform offers you a select choice of (local) organizations that we represent on an exclusive basis. We will bring you in contact with our Local Partners well ahead so that you can communicate direct with them. After all, they are the real experts of the region ...

All these independent operators are recruited for their excellence in terms of regional know-how, service and dedication. All were visited by us and have undersigned the Goldentimers Quality Control provisions regarding operational processes, information systems and communication procedures. Together we stand for the highest professional standards in the self-drive business. 

Attention : Goldentimers does not book your in- and outgoing flights. If you need assistance with flights, travel insurance, visa, ..., or other matters you need to take care of before your departure, please consult the Flights & Visa section.

 

the Local Support : on arrival you will be welcomed and briefed by our Local Partner and you will be provided a contact number that can be reached 24/7 for emergencies. Your Arrive-and-Drive vehicle will be ready for you and you will be handed over navigation tools and all necessary permits and papers. Our Local Partner remains at your disposal for questions/support during the full length of your tour ... 

the Formulas : different tours call for different formulas. Whether in a Self-Drive, as part of a Tag-Along, in a Guided convoy or while participating in a Challenge edition; you will dispose of a vehicle to drive/ride yourself during the whole tour. Depending on the type of tour we offer ‘Camp’, ‘Comfort’ and ‘Luxury’ formulas with matching accommodation. In some events you can participate with Your-Own-Vehicle, but for most tours we secured appropriate Arrive-and-Drive solutions. Read more in the Formulas section ...

the Vehicles : for most tours fully prepared rental vehicles are provided at location at fleet conditions, with all necessary accessories, insurances and road assistance available as an option or already in place - see what's included in the tour description. Born to be wild on a motorbike, the wind in your hair in a convertible, driving a legendary classic car, finally making that 4WD adventure, challenging yourself in a cult vehicle, ... it's all possible with Goldentimers! We now even offer Rickshaw & Tuk Tuk Road Trips ...  More about the Vehicles in the Spirit section ...

the Roads : the main purpose of our tours is to let you enjoy wonderful landscapes and typical locations, while driving through the most beautiful surroundings of the world. Scenic routes, byways, … to us the road is already a destination. Unlike more commercial tours, our road trips do not just race from one city to the next, nor do we hurry from one touristic must see to the following. We make sure to keep a good balance between excitement, tranquility and authenticity. You will not just drive through a region but you will connect with it ... 

the Accommodation : after an amazing and satisfying day trip, you will arrive at your place to spend the evening and night. All participants in a Tag-Along, Guided Tour or Challenge will stay in the same accommodation. In the big cities this will likely be a high rated hotel downtown, close to where the action is. But depending on your choice of tour the accommodation may vary from a luxury resort to a basic camp in the wilderness (and everything in between) ... Read more in Formulas

the Food and Entertainment : whether in the most lively city or in the middle of nowhere, we understand the need for a rewarding dinner and drinks after an exhilarating day on the (off-)road. Consult our roadbook for a selection of places to make a stop and/or for some authentic local entertainment. Make it a memorable evening with (or without) your fellow participants ... 

the Goldentimers Community : we like to think of Goldentimers as one happy family. We're not a formal club with admissions and fees etc, rather a Community of free individuals willing to help each other out along the way. Read more about this in the Goldentimers Community section ... 

the Itineraries : the detailed itineraries you'll find in the Tour Map you will receive after registration, are put together in close cooperation with our Local Partners. We drove all tours ourselves, so no unpleasant surprises … Besides the necessary road & accommodation info you can also find lots of other valuable information in our roadbooks, that are drawn-up with the utmost care ... 

the Prices : because of our direct approach the listed prices are very competitive and for each tour we clearly indicate what is included and what is not. There are no extra booking- or member fee charges. The Standard Rate is calculated per person and based on two persons sharing (standard room and vehicle). Separate rooms are optional at a single surcharge (upon availability). For some tours we can also offer triple rooms. We secure fleet conditions for you and maintain a best-price-guarantee. Looking for a Group Incentive? We will tailor-make a Tour Event for you including some unforgettable extra's  ... 

How to Register? Tours are booked well ahead and for most tours the number of entries is limited. Go to the International Booking Platform to View All Tours or to make your selection. You can also consult the Club Calendar to search for Joint Departure dates. Anyhow, make sure to become part of the Goldentimers Community well in time and don't forget to send in your pictures and videos in order to compete for the Golden Turtle Photo Awards ...
