Your own room at no extra cost

Whether you’re a seasoned solo traveller or embarking on your first solo adventure, now's the perfect time to book with a FREE single room supplement* on some of our favourite Discovery trips.

All our group tours are ideal for solo travellers – you can share a room (with the same sex) and not pay a supplement at all. But if you prefer your own space, for a limited time you can get a FREE single room option on selected departures.

About our Discovery trips

Discovery trips are the most popular kind of adventures that we do and will give you the widest choice of destinations. You’ll get up close and personal with the communities you travel through and see the highlights as well as hidden gems. And our Wildlife trips are perfect for every animal lover: from African safaris to wildlife-spotting in Costa Rica, we've got a trip for everyone. Every group is different but the ‘average’ group consists of roughly half couples and half solo travellers. You'll be led by an expert local tour leader, chosen for their travel experience, passion for their country and their ability to make a truly memorable experience.

Terms & Conditions

1. The offer is valid for new bookings made between 30 January 2020 and 27 February 2020. We regret the discount cannot be applied retrospectively to existing bookings.
2. The offer is only available on selected departure dates of selected trips up to 30 November 2020 (unless otherwise specified) and is strictly subject to availability.
3. All customers, whether booking directly with Explore or through a travel agent, are eligible for this offer.
4. Trips that have departures that are included in the offer are flagged ‘Go Solo & Save!’ on the Explore website, and the specific departures will show the price of a single room option as ‘Now Free’.  
5. The ‘save up to $2000’ relates to the Adventures in Patagonia trip (trip code PA). However the free single room options are limited, subject to availability and may be withdrawn at any time.
6. Your chosen trip may have nights where single accommodation is not available, for example on an overnight train. This information is listed in the Trip Notes which are available on our website.
7. You do not need to quote anything at the time of booking to qualify for the offer. The discount has already been applied to the trip. 
8. Availability of free single room options on some trips is very limited (due to our policy to use smaller, family-run hotels) so we recommend you book early to avoid disappointment.  There is a limit to the free single room options on some trips featured in this offer and after these are booked any remaining singles will only be available for purchase. 
9. Please note that due to the limited availability of free single rooms on some trips there may be rare occasions when there are no more free single rooms available even though the price is showing ‘Free’.    If you are booking by phone availability of the free single room will be confirmed by our customer service team. If booking on our website availability of the single room will be confirmed at stage 2 of the booking process.
