TRAVEL ALONE? - NEED A TRAVEL PARTNER?

Viajando Solo

Reserve as soon as possible and we will try to get you a (same gender) Room-Share travel partner (applicable to most tours) and therefore, you will save the high cost of the "Individual Supplement" (extra cost for having a room to yourself). Contact us at 1-888-284-2887 or by email at info@viatur.com, to inform us of your interest in a Room-Share travel partner.  Make your $500 deposit, as soon as possible, to have a better chance of finding a roommate. Be aware that his option has pros and cons.  The "pros", If it all goes well, you will save money and hopefully have a pleasant and courteous travel partner, who might even become a friend or travel partner for other trips.  The "con" is that after finding you a roommate, that person might turn out to be someone, not as pleasant (you can share a room, without having to socialize during the day).  The most worrisome case "con" is that person may decide to cancel the trip for personal reasons or decide to travel with someone else known to him/her at last minute and is no longer be available to share the room.  In that uncommon scenario, you will be responsible for paying the Individual Supplement, but you will be able to have the room to yourself.  If you cancel, we will refund you as much as possible, but this depends on when does is the cancellation processed (within 60 days of departure date, it gets more complicated).  Also, if airline tickets have been issued, the airline will not refund any money and the tickets are non-transferable.  This situation happens rarely, but it's always a possibility, so its always best to consider the scenario of that extra expense.  We will make the Single Supplement, as affordable as possible, but it's based on what the Tour Operator charges, how long is the tour and the destination, because some countries are far more expensive than others.
