The Avis Accommodation Upgrade package is for teams who prefer a few more luxuries than what is offered in the standard rider package.

As a rider on the Avis Accommodation Upgrade package, you receive a number of enhanced services at the race: including hotel accommodation, personal baggage assistance and massage services at your accommodation.

Please meet your hosts on registration day between 09:00- 14:00 at the Avis Accommodation Upgrade counter outside the registration venue to discuss arrangements for the Prologue and have any questions answered.

Your Avis Accommodation Upgrade package officially starts after the Prologue with a transfer to your accommodation near Saronsberg. Please ensure that you hand in your rider bag to your host before the start of the Prologue and check your day bag into the day bag holding area.

If you are a Pre-accommodation guest, please leave your rider bag with an Avis upgrade representative at the hotel before you depart to Lourensford on Prologue Day. Remember to pack a day bag which you can check into the day bag holding area before you start the Prologue.

Your bikes should remain at the race village in the secure bike park, unless you have taken it to a mechanic. All bikes needing to be transferred must be in a Bike park by 1pm. No bikes may be transported in the Avis Accommodation Upgrade vehicles at any time.

If you have any additional luggage not used on the event, please check it in on registration day at the Stellenbosch bag truck.

Please note: During the event, your bike will remain in the bike park. Bikes will not be allowed to travel with you back to the hotel.


  • The priority of the host is to ensure the well-being of the entire group travelling with you.
  • Additional favours and errands requested of hosts and massage therapists must not impact negatively on the quality of service provided to the other riders in your group.
  • Your host is not responsible for washing or fixing your bike, this is a pre-booked independent service. If you have any mechanical issues, you can visit our tech zone in the race village.
