Tauck waives single supplement for select departures in 2014

NORWALK — Tauck has eliminated the single supplement on its Category 1 European riverboat cabins and reduced the single supplement by up to US$600 on 158 departures of 64 itineraries to five continents.

“By their very nature, our guided tours and cruises provide a wonderful camaraderie and sense of assurance that’s typically absent when one travels alone,” said Tauck CEO Dan Mahar. “What’s more, we handle all of the advance planning and details for our guests, so there’s no anxiety or worry.  By eliminating or reducing the single supplement on so many of our trips, we’re really making great journeys for solo travellers even better.”

Besides waiving the single supplement for the Category 1 cabins on its European riverboats, Tauck is also taking $1,000 off the price for solo travellers booking Category 4 and 5 cabins on 28 departures of 13 different river cruises.

Elsewhere in Europe, Tauck has also reduced the single supplement by up to $400 on 50 departures of 22 different land tours.

The company is also taking up to $300 off the single supplement on 46 departures of 18 itineraries in North America.  And within its ‘Exotics’ portfolio, Tauck has trimmed the single supplement by $300 to $600 on 34 departures of 11 trips in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East.

The company is including four dedicated cabins for solo travellers in the design of its two new riverboats launching next year (the ms Savor and ms Inspire).  The company also features a dedicated Solo Travel Forum and Solo Travel section on its website, tauck.com, to better serve its guests and prospective guests who may be travelling alone.
