Single Supplement Policy

Single Supplement, commonly referred to as S.S., is an extra charge applied by hotels to customers that want to have a single room.

Our tours are based on twin share accommodation. Thus on most tours a single traveller does not HAVE to purchase single supplement unless they specifically want a single room to themselves.

Single travellers that are happy to share with someone of their own sex do not need to select single supplement. On the rare occasions that there is no option but to charge for a S.S. we will advise you before completing your booking

However with pre and post tour accommodation we are unable to allocate shared accommodation and so single travellers must pay the single supplement with any pre or post tour accommodation they purchase.
