What is a single supplement?
What is a single supplement and why do I have to pay it?
Our trip prices are based on double-occupancy rooms; that is, two people (spouses, partners, friends, etc) sharing a room and essentially splitting the cost of each hotel room.
If you choose to have your own room OR you do not have a roommate, you are responsible for paying the entirety of the cost of your hotel rooms, hence the additional fee (or “single supplement”). If you traveling alone but desire a roommate, we can put you in touch with other single guests looking for a roommate; however, we can never guarantee a roommate and if you do end up with a private room, you will be responsible for the single supplement.
Please don’t think you’re ever being punished for traveling by yourself (we are big fans of traveling solo!), but we cannot absorb the extra cost of your hotel room if you cannot find a roommate. We will try to get as creative as possible to find a way around the charge, but please know that we do not profit from your single supplement–it is simply to cover your private accommodation.
