single traveller

four family members are travelling to Coral sea resort in december and have asked if I want to join them. I have obtained a price from Thomson for a single room and under occupancy costs have put the holiday price up by an additional £440. Can anybody advise which hotels are near the coral sea resort and if necessary I will book a single room in a different hotel.I have tried to email the hotel directly to find out if this additional cost is incorrect. !!!!!!!!!!!!

Unfortunately single travellers really pay the price!!! Whereas I can understand an extra charge when the hotels are fully booked, I really can't fathom out why they are allowed to hike up the price when hotels are under occupied as they are now! I don't know of any hotels that don't charge this, if you find out I will be pleased to hear about it!!! Even if you got a cheap flight and got a good rate for the room from another company, it's still expensive, probably will work out the same. I've been clobbered by this for years

Could you perhaps share a 3 bedded room, or are they couples which would be difficult

A few years back Longwood holidays did this with a few hotels at certain times of the year, don't know why they stopped

Ginger that is a lot! The usual extra is £100 or so. Averages about £19 a night including the flight days. I can't suggest for Nabq as I haven't been there but I would suggest shopping around.

You don't give the dates or how long. Would this be Christmas? Have you checked online?

Sue, I've never been fortunate enough to get a good quality hotel for as little as a £100 extra, the least has been £250 and usually a lot more!!
