Single Travelers: If you are travelling alone there is no compulsory charge – you will share a twin room with another passenger of the same gender.

This can be added at the time of booking or by contacting our customer services team. Please note that the room provided may be a single room with a single bed.
Triple Room requests: We can generally provide a triple room on request; however it is not guaranteed to be available in every destination. Please contact our customer services team to request a triple room. Please note that in some hotels, the triple may be a double and a single bed, or the third bed may be a pull-out or bunk-bed. Where we cannot provide a triple room the rooming will consist of one twin room and the third passenger sharing with another single traveller of the same gender.
