May I book a vacation on my own and join Singles Travel International activities once I arrive?
No. We offer so much more than just a cruise or tour! In addition to our Concierge Team who coordinates all of the fun, we have parties, mixers, events, singles only seating at meals, sightseeing trips, dinner reservations, you name it! Our Concierge is at your service, which extends far beyond what you receive when you book a cruise or tour on your own. Finally, we market 360 days a year to get singles together so that your vacation is more enjoyable. Now that's worth the price of admission!
Singles Travel International is a vacation event company that plans singles events and markets our events at our expense to create a "singles only" experience. We do not allow guests to join the group unless the reservation has been made by STI. Our policy is firm for tours and cruises, as well as pre and post trip hotel stays. Members and friends that "show up" will not be allowed to participate without paying an equivalent fee to the rest of the group that made the reservation with STI. Your credit card on file will automatically be charged.
What's included in your rates?
Refer to the "Inclusive Features" on the "Highlights" tab for each vacation.
How do I get the best rates?
Singles Travel International offers promotions regularly based on offers from our suppliers: cruise lines and tour companies. In addition, we often offer our First Five promotion which earns a special rate, upgrade or gift for the first 5 reservations. All of our promotions are posted to the site on the trip page, but we recommend that you join us on all of our social media outlets to be the first in the know.
A place to connect & express yourself…
All rates are subject to change until you have made your initial deposit and a Singles Travel International Reservation Specialist has reviewed the reservation with you and sent you an official invoice. Singles Travel International does not control pricing by cruise lines and tour operators. Therefore, if there is a change in pricing due to supply and demand, Singles Travel International must pass on the new rate. Therefore, we highly recommend that you reserve early to lock in the best rates and space.
Are there any other expenses which are not included?
None of our vacations include airfare, but our knowledgeable and experienced reservation specialists are waiting to give you the best quote. In addition, you are responsible for beverages (except when included in STI events), optional excursions, casino gambling, shopping, spa services, optional meals, alcoholic beverages and gratuities to ship staff, local guides, drivers and the STI Concierge (team). Cabin/room incidentals such as laundry, phone calls and internet access are also at an additional cost and all items will appear on your final billing statement at the end of the cruise or stay. See the Highlights Tab for each vacation for specific inclusions by program.
Our cruise rates DO include port taxes, fuel surcharges and government fees, which are always subject to change, even after deposit has been made.
Will everyone be single?
Our land vacations are exclusively and custom designed, so you may be assured that everyone on our tour is single. On cruise vacations, our group makes up a portion of the overall population and we host exclusive events every day. Nobody knows what the dynamics will be on a cruise from week to week, so traveling with a singles club is the best way to go.
Is airfare included in your vacation price?
In order to accommodate singles from all over the world, our tours and cruises are priced as land/cruise only. Therefore, airfare is additional. Singles Travel International is a licensed ticketing agency and oftentimes has low negotiated and group fares.
How would my family reach me in an emergency?
Your Final Vacation Details & Meetup Information document, posted on the specific trip FAQ tab 14 days prior to departure, will include phone contact numbers for the ship or hotels in which you'll be staying. Instructions on international dialing codes will be provided. We suggest you leave a copy of this with your family.
They may call Singles Travel International Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Eastern Time, or after hours, call the 24 hour emergency number listed in the Final Vacation Details & Meetup Information document.
