The Best Value for Solo Travelers
The lowest single-room supplements in active travel …and enduring friendships
You’re a newly single woman venturing out solo for the first time in a few years. Or perhaps you’re traveling with friends but prefer your own room. There are many reasons why you may not fit into the “double occupancy” category. And, of course, we recognize the thrill that comes with setting off on your own through a new destination. With VBT, you will always fit right in. In 2014, 28% of our travelers were solo travelers. Why do so many solo travelers choose VBT? Because we are committed to providing you with the same value, quality, and care that every traveler deserves.
Compare & see: our single-room supplements are the lowest
To guarantee a single-occupancy room, we charge a low single-room supplement. If you’ve shopped around, you’ve learned that most travel companies charge a hefty price for the privilege of having your own room. Sometimes double the cost of the base trip itself. We think that’s not only unfair, it’s bad business. We offer the lowest single-room supplements among active-travel companies. Our hotel partners around the world know they can depend on us to fill their single rooms, so they offer them at the best rates available. We have one single-room supplement for our Air Package Plus option, and another for our Land Only option, which is less expensive because it need not include airport transfers and an extra night or two of accommodations. Whichever choice you make as a solo traveler, know that you can depend on us for the lowest prices.
Enjoy the best & most comprehensive value
Our low single-room supplements are the icing on the cake. Every VBT trip already provides exceptional value because of all the comprehensive features you get for one low price: included roundtrip international airfare; spectacular itineraries; outstanding accommodations, meals, and activities; expert Trip Leaders; bikes and helmets and walking poles; and outstanding service and vehicle support.
Save even more with our Share Request program
If you request to share a room with another single traveler, we’ll do our best to match you with a same-sex roommate. You will need to pay 50% of the published single-room supplement prior to your departure. If we find you a roommate, you’ll pay no single room supplement whatsoever and the 50% single supplement will be refunded once the tour departs. If we can’t find you a same-sex roommate, you won’t have to pay any more than your initial payment of 50% of the published single-room supplement. Either way, you are going to save.
Your Trip Leaders take excellent care of you
Because our groups are small, it’s easy to get to know everyone. Our Trip Leaders are adept at nurturing a warm group bond—a cinch when there are only 14-22 like-minded travelers on a biking or walking vacation (14-24 on our Bike & Barge trips). Aside from being remarkable guides, our Trip Leaders are gracious hosts who will make you feel safe, comfortable, and engaged. Your Trip Leader will also manage all the logistics—from handling check-ins to making sure your bike is road-ready—so you can travel carefree. In 2014, 28% of our travelers were solo travelers, so you’ll never feel like a “third wheel.” Many of our solo travelers start out chatting over dinner at a Tuscan agriturismo and end up as lifelong friends and travel mates.
