The reason for this supplement is that our contract with the owners/ hoteliers is commonly based on a price per room while our holidays are sold per person including flights and other elements. Therefore, the per person price for a lone traveller normally includes the entire room cost. We do not make additional or excessive profits from these sales. The prices charged merely reflect the real cost to us. In some hotels there are rooms that are designed for single occupancy only. In this instance there will normally be a supplement but usually less than when a single person occupies a double room. These single rooms are often smaller and sometimes less well-appointed. We do not know which room you will be allocated as your hotel will usually decide this shortly before you arrive. We have been able to negotiate a selection of departures (with limited availability) with no single supplement, which are highlighted in our tours.
