Solo Travellers with Rail Discoveries

Travelling on your own?

We welcome thousands of solo travellers onto our tours every year. For so many reasons, including the sociable nature of our tours and the friendliness of the Tour Managers, a group holiday with Rail Discoveries is an ideal choice for individuals travelling on their own.

As such, solo travellers with Rail Discoveries can enjoy the same high quality of holiday as everyone else, benefiting from exciting excursions, wonderful destinations and excellent accommodation.

We offer fair and transparent single supplement charges.

Fair single supplements

At Rail Discoveries, we promise to operate a fair and transparent policy on our single supplements. Unfortunately, most hoteliers charge a higher rate for a single room rather than halving the cost of a twin or double room that we have to pass on to our solo travellers as a supplement. These prices only reflect the extra costs levied by the hotels and is not something we add to the costs as a business in order to make a profit. There is no such supplement for your rail travel, excursions, transfers or meals and we always work exceptionally hard to negotiate the lowest possible prices for our single travellers.

On many of our tours, solo travellers will have sole occupancy of a twin or double room rather than a smaller single room. We indicate clearly on each tour page which option the single supplement covers.

A shared holiday experience

A Rail Discoveries tour is usually made up of around 10-12 couples as well as 4-5 solo travellers but the appeal is the same for everyone; excellent itineraries, fantastic excursions, superb rail travel, great hotels and the services of a dedicated Tour Manager. No matter what size group you're travelling in, each tour is priced in such a way as to offer real value for money to all our customers. On arrival at your departure point, you'll meet your group and Tour Manager, and from there on out, you'll be travelling and dining with the same people, providing the perfect chance to make friends with a collection of like-minded, English-speaking travellers.

Please note, all of our tours are available to solo travellers and on each tour, solo travellers can be sure to enjoy the exact same high quality as everyone else.
