LEEDS Co-op Travel is urging hoteliers and tour operators to scrap single-person supplements because the present system is unfair to single travellers.
General manager Paul Daley said single people had difficulty getting accommodation in the first place and were charged extra when they did find it.
“They don’t get the same deals, freedom or choice and the financial penalty becomes the final straw,” he said.
Daley said both hoteliers and operators preferred to take bookings from couples and families, except in off-peak periods.
An ABTA spokesman said it was up to hoteliers to decide their approach to single-room supplements.
