Solo Travelers Won’t Pay Supplement on European Waterways Hotel Barges

European Waterways' Scottish Highlander.


European Waterways is waiving the single supplement fee on more than 40 hotel barge cruises for 2019, a savings of more than $2,550 for solo travelers.

Derek Banks, managing director of European Waterways, said that the decision was made after the luxury hotel barge company reported a 50% increase in solo travelers in the past two years.

The “floating hotels” travel to France, Holland and Scotland and accommodate from six to 12 guests. The barges offering the waiver in France include La Belle Époque and L’Impressionniste in Burgundy; Enchante on the Canal du Midi; Rosa in Gascony; and Panache in Champagne and Alsace & Loraine. Panache also offers a special cruise in Holland; La Bella Vita in Venice and the Po Valley has the largest capacity for 20; while the Spirit of Scotland plies the Caledonian Canal and the Spirit of Scotland is also waiving the single supplement on select departures.

The company pays advisors a 10 percent commission on all bookings.
