Housing & Packages

Will I have to share a bed if I select double occupancy?

If it helps every accommodation selected is personally inspected by someone from our team prior to the trip. We typically aim for 4 star accommodations and better.

How does the double occupancy package work?

The double occupancy package is for two people in one room with one or two beds depending on preferences and availability. If you select this package both you and your roommate would need to make the purchase separately. If you are looking to be matched with a roommate you can simply purchase the double occupancy package, and we’ll take it from there.

Who is the double occupancy 2-ppl option for?

This package is for folks who are sharing finances and would like to make one monthly payment instead of paying and registering separately. This option is most frequently used by our couples and family members traveling together.
