Travel Buddies

Why is the price to travel as a Single so much higher than the other prices? The primary reason is that the cost of the hotel room or cruise cabin is a flat rate per night. When you divide that cost by one person it is twice as much as when that same room is divided by two, three or four people. Sometimes it’s nice to travel as a Single, but other times it would be nice to have a friend come along and help share the cost of those rooms. That’s why we want to help you find that special “Travel Buddy” that is interested in taking some of the same tours as you!

HOW IT WORKS

You can use the Travel Buddy program in two ways:

  1. Find a tour that you like, and click on the “Find a Travel Buddy” button on the reservation screen. You’ll have to login to your Village Tours account or create a new account if you haven’t logged on before.
    OR
  2. Click the "Available Buddies" tab above and see all of the folks who are currently looking for a Travel Buddy and what tour that they want to embark on. If you see a tour and potential Travel Buddy, click on the post, type a reply and click the "Reply" button to start a conversation with your potential Travel Buddy. You’ll be asked to create an account or login.

We encourage you to choose a login name that is not your real name. Also, for more safety, all correspondence between yourself and potential Travel Buddies is done through the Village Tours website. That means that you do not have to share your personal email address, phone number or even your real name until you are comfortable doing so.
