Avalon Waterways is celebrating solo travelers by removing the single supplement on select departures on nearly 50 percent of the company’s European itineraries. Avalon’s sister company Globus has also removed the single supplement on 10 vacations in destinations such as Britain, Ireland, France and Italy.
“It’s never been easier – or less expensive – to make European travel dreams come true,” said Steve Born, vice president of marketing for the Globus family of brands. “In addition to providing travelers prices that are 20 percent lower [on average] in Europe for 2010, we’re opening the door to savings for solo travelers on several river cruises and tours. Travelers going solo will not pay a single supplement for their own room, offering additional savings of up to $3,775.”
