Roommate matching is optional.

Subject to availability, we will match you with another group member (same gender) so that you can share a room and take advantage of the twin share price.

Reduced Single Supplement:
If we are not able to offer you a roommate match, a 'reduced single supplement' price will be offered. This represents a $200 saving on the standard single supplement price. Alternatively, you have the option to decline and receive a full refund of your tour deposit. The supplement is due after we finalise the group and before departure.  Please note:  If a roommate becomes available after receiving advice of a reduced single supplement rate, your booking automatically reverts to the twin share price and any monies paid for the reduced single supplement will be refunded.

The reduced single supplement offer only applies to bookings secured with a deposit paid by Monday, 11 December 2017.

Important note about airfares and progress payments
You should only make the progress payment when we have confirmed in writing to you that we have a roommate match for your booking; or, if you are prepared to pay the reduced single supplement, in the event a roommate match cannot be confirmed for your booking.
