The Single Traveler + Solo Supplements

January 20, 2016
Fares from Washington DC:

    Q. What's up with annoying single supplements imposed on solo travelers? While poking around online, I have found just one company -- GAP Adventures -- that doesn't penalize the solo traveler with these fees (which can be substantial). Can you direct me to any other companies that welcome (instead of penalize) us single folks?



    A. As more and more travelers go solo, single supplements are a growing problem. A great article offering some solutions is this New York Times article on the topic. I've inspected the Norwegian Cruise Lines "studio" cabins mentioned in the article, and I think they're a great solution to this problem. The article mentions Grand Circle Cruise Line, but Grand Circle also offers land tours with very low or non-existent single supplements on many departures.
