(Budget Travel, 2001)
Overseas Adventure Travel, one of the most popular travel companies for older adults, usually bases the prices for its trips on double occupancy. However, OAT is now eliminating its singles supplement for land-based trips and certain small ship trips in 2009 for vacations booked by January 31, according to spokesperson Karen Hansen. Single travelers won't have to pay a higher price for traveling solo.
For example: with the new offer, a 22-day air/lodging/tour package to Imperial China, Tibet and Yangtze river begins at $2,995 (including intra-country train travel and river ship travel). You'll skip the $845 single supplement, which amounts to a savings of 28 percent. Rates include most meals, housing, airport, river, and train transfers, and about 18 tours.
OAT is the go-to travel provider for Americans 50 and older seeking culturally-rich adventures. Tours are conducted in small groups of 14-25 voyagers by small ship and 10-16 by land with per diems that start as low as $93 a day. There are also eight adventures beginning at less than $150 a day. OAT voyages to over 30 countries, including Botswana, the Serengeti, India, Burma, China & Tibet, Vietnam, Colombia, the Galapagos, Peru, Costa Rica, Israel, and beyond.
