The proportionately higher prices for people traveling alone (Solo Travelers) mostly result from the higher overnight-room costs, as normally almost all hotel rooms are structured for 2 people who can each assume half of the overnight costs. This also applies to flat-rate travel. The hotels would not benefit from offering a reduction to solo travelers when the rooms could be occupied by 2 persons at a normal price. During the low season, some hotels lower the prices as a reason for the decreased demand since they have a large number of beds when the demand is not too high.
Prices vary throughout the year depending on the offer and request. During the summer and especially during the holidays that are considered high seasons like the Christma and New Year holidays, Easter holidays, and special events such as sports championship or destinations that are very popular and recent. Therefore tour operators can demand higher prices according to the increasing cost of accommodation and/ or implementation.
Most trips can also be booked for a shorter or longer period. However, if, for example, your departure time is changed, trips lasting 5 or 10 days will not be possible, that’s why we always request the flight details before proceeding with the booking, just to make sure the last suggested itinerary is fit for both the traveler and the operator.
