How we’re helping to reduce Single Supplement Charges

We understand that saving for your dream trip is a big investment which takes time, so why is it that you should then be penalised for being a solo traveller? To alleviate this, we’ve developed a new ‘Willing to Share’ facility which means that as a solo traveller you can waive the single supplement charges by sharing a room with another solo traveller of the same gender.

You can make the ‘willing to share’ request at the time of booking and we will keep this record on your booking notes right up until eight weeks before departure, when we will let you know if a match has been found. If a match is not found, you can transfer to a different tour that has someone who is willing to share, or you can cancel your booking completely free of charge. You can of course, remain on your original tour but you will have to pay the single supplement fee before departure.

If you’re changing tours and there is a difference in the cost, this will be amended ahead of your final payment. Please note though that if you have booked any additional extras such as Business Class or Premium Economy class upgrades (inclusive of our free upgrade offer) you will be charged a cancellation fee for this aspect of the tour if you change to a different tour, or cancel your booking.
