Travel Solo with Tuttle Tours
You have picked out a tour and are ready to book your trip. There is only one problem – you have no one to travel with. Should you give up your dream and stay at home, or should you travel solo?
Traveling with a tour group can be a great way to enjoy a solo adventure, make friends and resolve safety concerns. There are many different kinds of tour groups, so you will want to consider all of your options before you book your trip.
Here are some tips for traveling solo with a tour group.
Decide Whether You Want to Pay a Single Supplement or Find a Roommate
Solo travelers usually have to pay a single supplement when they travel with a tour group. Hotels, cruise lines and tour operators base their per-person rates on double occupancy. The single supplement compensates travel providers for the absence of that second occupant. This means that solo travelers pay more.
Some tour operators help solo travelers save money by offering them a roommate matching service. Solo travelers who are interested in finding roommates are matched with another solo traveler of the same sex so that both of them are able to pay the lower double occupancy rate.
You will need to decide whether it is better to save money by rooming with a stranger or pay more to have a room to yourself. Travelers who snore or are introverted might wish to save up and pay the single supplement so they can have a room to themselves, but plenty of people prefer to use roommate-matching services and do so with great success.
