Q: I am interested in traveling on a multiple-day tour, but I don’t have a roommate. The price per person for single occupancy is higher than the price per person for double occupancy. Why are single travelers penalized for traveling alone?

A: Single travelers are never penalized for traveling alone. In reality, the single occupancy fare is the true price of the tour. However, when two people travel together the cost of the hotel room is divided between the two travelers, so the double occupancy fare reflects a lower rate for each. The good news for solo travelers is that on most multiple-day tours we offer a guaranteed room share, which means we’ll pair you with a same-gender, non-smoking roommate, so you can take advantage of the double occupancy rate. If we’re unable to pair you with a roommate, you’ll travel single occupancy at no additional cost. Please note: Roomshare Guarantees are available only on reservations made prior to the tour’s cancellation deadline. We can still try to pair you with another single traveler if you make your reservation after the deadline has passed, but the double occupancy price at that point is no longer provided if a roommate is not secured. In this instance you would initially pay the single supplement and if a roommate became available your single supplement will be refunded.
