There’s great news coming out of all-inclusive river cruise and tour operator Tauck, particularly if you are looking to take a river cruise on your own. The Connecticut-based company has just announced that it has once again eliminated the single supplement charge on Category 1 staterooms on all of its European-based river cruise ships.
What makes this particularly noteworthy is that it doesn’t carry a bunch of restrictions or blackout dates; every one of Tauck’s 220-plus European river cruise departures offers the ability for solo travelers to set sail without paying the dreaded single supplement.
“The cost savings we’re extending to solo travelers are obviously considerable, but they’re only one reason why our land tours and cruises are perfect for those traveling without a companion,” said Tauck CEO Dan Mahar. “At Tauck we handle all of the advance planning prior to the trip’s start, and all of the details once the trip is underway, so there’s no burden or hassle for the traveler. And of course, solo travelers love the camaraderie and sense of assurance they get from being part of a Tauck group. Traveling with Tauck is already a great choice for solo travelers, and with the savings we’re offering, it’s an even easier decision.”
For those who want more variety in their cabin choices but still prefer to travel solo, Tauck is offering some great incentives on higher-level staterooms and suites. The company is reducing the single supplement by up to $1,000 on 170 departures across 60 different itineraries.
Select departures in Europe feature $1,000 off the price of Category 4 and 5 staterooms for solo travellers, while the supplement for other categories has been reduced by up to $400 on 45 departure dates spanning 17 different itineraries.
On the rivers of Europe, Tauck is perhaps best known for its all-inclusive approach to river cruising. No options or extra-cost items are sold onboard, meaning that the price you pay upfront is the total cost of your journey. It’s so comprehensive that Tauck’s knowledgeable and friendly guides will even provide you with a few Euro coins to cover the cost of public washroom facilities when on-tour in Europe.
The company has also built a well-deserved reputation around offering guests exclusive events that are often imitated but never duplicated aboard other river cruise lines. These include private performances, exclusive dining engagements, guest speakers, and after-hours access to museums that simply could not be arranged by members of the general public.
Tauck’s 2016 European river cruise journeys are now available for booking.
