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.
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.
Flexibility and freedom
If you enjoy your independence as a solo traveller, you will have the freedom to do your own thing and will never be forced to join an excursion.
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 solo 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.
