New traveling solo rates!

Cruise lines and tour operators have finally recognized a major market segment –solo travelers. These are people who for a multitude of reason chose to travel alone not. They are not “single” passengers on a match making journey.

For years companies added a 100% single supplement market to their product. Instead of paying $1000.00 you paid $2000. You were basically paying for the unused hotel bed or cruise berth.

Today we’re starting to see “going solo” prices on select departures. These normally are the same rates as the per person double occupancy.    

Uniworld Boutique River Cruises recently announced more solo traveler rates on select departures. Contact me or your river cruise specialist for details and reservations!
