Single? Double? Tripple? Help.

Travel Forums Europe Single? Double? Tripple? Help.

I have been reading a guidebook on Europe. In the accomodation section it states different prices for "Single", "Double", "Triple". My question is, can 2 travellers share a single bed at the "single" price? Thanks for the clarification? -Charlie

Sorry, not possible :( .

Probably no one cares about you sharing that single bed ;) , but you'll have to pay for two people if two people stay at a place - and they won't let two people stay in a single room.

Just to clear things up; a single's a room with one bed three feet wide, a double could be two singles put alongside each other or a queen- or kingsize bed, a triple is a double plus a single for families or a small group. You sometimes get a double room for the price of a single, but only when staying there alone.

Anyhow, you're paying per person, not per room.

Did I make things more complicated than necessary? Probably...

Just walk in alone, pay the single bed price and make sure your partner (I hope she/he is;)) comes in a few minutes after you.

Hey Charlie

Highly impossible for 2 person to pay for a single bed price.
Do lookout for different tariff on different days like weekdays or weekends, or events. You might maybe want to avoid paying extra though it might be just a little bit more
