How can I make sure I read the rates correctly?
All rates for all packages are listed per person based on 2 people sharing the room. If you travel alone single rate applies. You have to look for the double rate if you have 2 people in your party, and for the triple rate if there are 3 of you. Most times cost varies depending on seasonalities. All price charts give rates for all seasons usually for a one-year period. Rates are usually listed as one price per season with single supplement specified as an extra cost. If something is not clear, please send us an email or call us toll free at
1 800 838 6860 Monday-Friday. We are closed on Saturdays and Sundays
What exactly is the single supplement?
The published rate of a package is always calculated per person but based on 2 people sharing the same room throughout the stay. Single supplement is an additional cost on top of the package rate that single people who wish to stay in a single room during the duration of the trip would have to pay.
E.g. Tour rate is listed as euro 1000, single supplement as euro 200. It means if you are traveling alone on this tour, you pay euro 1200. However, if a friend joins you, you would only have to pay euro 1000. Your friend also pays the same amount.
Can I avoid paying the single supplement if I am willing to share my room with an other single person on the tour?
No, we do not handle single matching. We do not know the tour members personally. We are not aware of their sleeping or washroom habits and do not wish to disappoint our clients with incompatible roommates. We suggest you travel with a friend or family member if you wish to avoid paying for the single supplement.
