Advantages of Shoulder Season Travel

By | Travel Tips | No Comments

shoulder season noun: a travel season between peak and off-peak seasons, typically in the spring and fall.

I typically end up scheduling it during the shoulder season dates, if the timing works out.

Single Supplement - The Taste Vacations Difference

Single Supplement – The Taste Vacations Difference

By | Taste Vacations, Travel Tips | No Comments

We love chatting with people interested in our vacations and are happy to answer any and all questions about our tours. A question that comes up fairly frequently is about our single supplement policy. We thought it would help to go over it in a little more detail.

Taste Vacations’ Single Supplement Policy:
Our trip prices are based on double occupancy (two people per room). If you are coming on a public group trip solo, we will find you a roommate of the same gender. If you prefer to have a room to yourself and not have a roommate, you can pay the single supplement — which varies depending on the trip and is listed on the individual trip page — to do so. (The only time our single supplement becomes mandatory is if you are booking a private tour and there is an odd number of people.)

By | Travel Tips | No Comments

Some people have very little inhibitions when it comes to travel. They pick up and go at a moments notice and perhaps without even a fully thought out plan.  While others want to travel but may have travel fears that are keeping them at home.
