Traveled with them 5 times and was generally happy . This last year they made a 180 degree about face regarding their single travelers and retention policies. They had advertised their appreciation of solo travelers and welcomed them even sending notices of expanding...

Yes, I worked for them for a while. They are all about getting your money and hoping that you don't complain about what you get.

Their ships are old- 20 years- and are really not comparable in the sense to their competitors. They grossly overcharge for their flights ( 500.00 more than you can get) and if you don't buy theirs they charge you for transfers. They brag about how great they are for solo travelers, but solo travelers are discriminated against for promotions and cabin assignments.

The travel insurance they push is much higher than you can get on your own, and they call it "cancel for any reason". What they wont tell you upfront is that it is a voucher for future travel, and not a refund.

I am having the same experience with Trip Mate. I bought the insurance on the recommdation of Nantucket Airlines. Allianz insurance was wonderful and paid immediately for a different leg of the same trip.

I've taken 3 OAT trips so far and will head out to East Canada in two days. It should be interesting to see how a 40 person tour compares to the 16 person OAT tours. I am amazed at the value Grand Circle can offer especially to a single traveler. Tour guides great....
