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, challenges, etc... with almost any kind of vehicle that contains a motor and wheels.

Although licensed by CCRA/TRUE, we are not a typical tour operator nor travel agent. The Goldentimers platform offers you a select choice of local self-drive operators that we represent on an exclusive basis. We will bring you in contact with our local partners well ahead and allow you to communicate direct with them. After all, they are the real experts of the region ...

These independant local operators and organizations are recruited for their excellence in terms of regional know-how, service and dedication. All local partners were visited by us and have undersigned the Goldentimers Quality Control provisions regarding operational processes, information systems and communcation procedures. We stand for the highest professional standards in the self-drive business. 

Attention : Goldentimers focusses on the local aspects of your trip and does not book your flights etc. If you need assistance with flights, travel insurance, visa, ... , or any other arrangements you need to take care of before you arrive at the country of destination, please consult the Flights & Visa section ...

Also important to note is that all our Group Tours are Adults Only, this in order to ensure a genuine roadtrip atmosphere for everybody participating. One of the main features of our Club events is the support and camaraderie from likeminded people, while driving spectacular routes and enjoying memorable evenings together. Read further on this in the Spirit section ... 

the Local Support : on arrival you will be welcomed and briefed by the local operator and you will be provided a contact number that can be reached 24/7 for further assistance. 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(s) remains at your disposal for questions/support during the full length of your tour ... 

the Formulas : different tours call for different formulas. All tours are Self-Drive, e.g. in a Guided Convoy, as part of a Club Tag-Along, as an individual tour with proper roadbook & maps, or while participating in a Challenge Edition (which will take the adventure factor to another level...). 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 : in 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 suroundings 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 Club Tag-Along will stay at 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 our 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 Itineraries : the detailed itineraries you'll find in the Tour Map that 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. 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 Participate? : tours are booked well ahead and for most tours the number of entries is limited ... So View All Tours here or go through the Search menu and select your tour! You can also consult the Club Calendar to search for Club Departure Dates.
