It’s not the easiest process and it takes a bit of planning and motivation. Although you can hire a bike in most places, often it’s better to take your own especially if you’re planning on doing lots of miles. Places like Majorca can offer you bike hire at very competitive prices but if you’re looking at places like Switzerland or Greece and Cyprus then it will be cheaper to take your own bike. Having said that, taking your bike on the plane, sometimes can cost more than the flight... especially with the likes of Ryanair. Don’t forget, while in the resort you will need to book a bigger taxi, as well, in order fit the bike case. In some instances taxis charge more, so I recommend you to pre-book your Transfers.
