Single Room Supplement

If you travel alone, you will generally share a double room with another companion of the same sex who is also traveling alone.

However, on most of our trips, it is possible to purchase a single room at an additional price. The specific supplement is indicated in the section "Not included"" on the day to day program for the journey in question.

If you book a single room, you should be aware that we in general use smal, often family owned / run hotels on our trips. Typically it is these hotels that meet our aspirations concerning location, ambience, intimacy and a direct and effective communication with the place. When it comes to the rooms at these places, they are often very varied. This applies to size, interior decoration, view (sea, backyard, mountains, neighboring houses, etc.), balcony / no balcony etc. Unfortunately it is not possible for us to differentiate the rooms of these parameters. Since the use of the room is mainly to sleep in/ shower in on our trips, this normally causes no problems.

When you buy a single room on a Topas trip, you pay to have the room on your own. You do not pay for better rooms and better views, etc.
Travel plan

The travel plan for your specific trip will be posted at your personal site "My Topas Trip" within 30 days prior to departure. In case of booking more than 30 days prior to departure you should be aware of possible changes to your flight plan.
