Every year we have Women, and Men who would love to experience a Yogol Group tour but miss out on the opportunity because they can’t find a suitable roommate. Although we offer single occupancy rooms on all our tours, oftentimes that price increase can push an affordable trip out of your budget. Or maybe solo travel is just not your thing (yet) so you decide not to book that once in a lifetime trip!
To avoid that additional out of pocket cost, and the envy you’ll feel when you see all the Facebook photos, we encourage you to find other solo travelers and share a room. We love connecting good people while allowing them to take advantage of the reduced rooming costs. The savings can be substantial, and you might find your new travel buddy for future trips!
Currently, we offer roommate matching for some, but not all, of our International tours. Where roommate matching is available it will be listed in the notes section of the tour. Please note, there is no roommate matching available for domestic tours.
HOW IT WORKS
- Select “book now” on your international tour of choice (tour must not be sold out, and must offer roommate matching)
- During the booking process, select “double occupancy”
- In the Roommate name field, you will enter “ROOMMATE MATCH REQUESTED”
- Complete the remaining fields, select your payment plan, pay your deposit, and complete your reservation
When your reservation is complete, you will be directed to a link to fill out information about you, and your travel preferences. It is important that you fill this information out completely, and honestly so that you are matched accordingly.
After you have submitted that information and when 75% of your reservation has been paid, you will begin to receive email notifications from Yogol Travel & Events with the name, email address, and description of other solo travelers on your tour that have also expressed an interest in finding a roommate. Your information will in turn be provided to those same solo travelers.
We encourage you to review the information and reach out to anyone with whom you are interested in rooming with. It is strongly recommended that you and your potential match have a few conversations via email AND phone to get to know a little about one another before making a final decision. Proceed only if/when you are confident that you’ve found someone with whom you’ll enjoy spending time.
Once you and your roommate have agreed to proceed, you will both need to contact Yogol Travel & Events within two weeks and let us know you would like to room together. This must be done prior to your final payment being due. We will then make the necessary adjustments to your reservations internally.
That’s it…. It’s easy, free, and a great way to find a travel companion!
