If you’re discouraged by those unfair single-supplement fees for solo travelers, there are some ways to travel on your own without being penalized for it.
Hotels, tour operators and cruise lines base their room rates on double occupancy, which means they charge single travelers extra to have their own room.
But, there are ways around it.
A company called Intrepid Travel offers Solo & Active tours for lone travelers.
They’ll place you with a roommate, so you can participate in trips like a nine-day tour of Morocco starting at $740.
Or you can walk along Italy’s Puglian Coastline with Country Walker’s Women’s Tours, which charge no single supplement fee at all.
And, with Tauck Tours, you can find “singles specials,” which are select trips at discounted prices for solo travelers.
An eight-day tour through the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks will cost you about $2,600 with no extra fee.
