Contains one double bed. Suitable for two people.

Single room

Contains one single bed. Suitable for one person.

Triple room

Contains twin or double bed/s + extra bed, or two double beds. Suitable for three people. Most hotels do not have one full size bed for each guest in their triple rooms.

Twin room for sole use

Contains two single beds or one double bed in the same room, to be occupied by one person.

Extra Bed

Extra bed or rollaway bed suitable for a child between 2 and 18 years old. A maximum of 2 extra beds can only be added to twin and double rooms only. It is important to note that some of our contracts state that children are accommodated free with the existing bedding. In these cases we will book the child within the existing bedding and will not reserve an extra bed. As this will not reflect on our confirmation to you we recommend that on your voucher you only specify that a child has been booked; e.g.: double Room + child, but not whether an extra bed is reserved or not.

Cot/cradle or crib

Cot/cradle or crib suitable for a child up to the age of two years. A maximum of 2 cots per room can be added to all room types apart from single rooms. Please note that cots will be requested at the hotel, however cots are not guaranteed and are subject to availability at check-in.

There are certain types of room that are unique in selected destinations as stated here. This list is not necessarily exhaustive:

  • German twin rooms (sometimes also known as German double rooms) will consist of two separate single beds attached side by side and are more similar to a double room.
  • Some hotels, especially in Scandinavia, may provide twin rooms consisting of one single bed and one sofa bed, or triple rooms with two single beds or double beds with one sofa bed.
  • In North America double or twin rooms may contain one bed. Customers may request separate beds when reserving, however separate beds are not guaranteed. Triple and quad rooms usually contain two double beds.
  • For hotels in Australia, North America and Asia the child will normally use existing bedding. Rollaway beds may be available for an additional charge. 

Please note the following:

  • The availability of quad rooms is VERY limited in most destinations.
  • In general hotels will not allow children to stay in a room without an adult but there can be exceptions and also the age of the children will play a part in the decision of the hotel.
  • Extra beds are suitable for children between 2 and 18 years old. Some hotels will, however, not grant concessions for children that are older than a certain age and therefore triple room rates may be applied. This varies from hotel to hotel.
  • Infant cots (cradle or crib) are suitable for children up to the age of two years. A maximum of 2 cots per room can be added to all room types apart from single rooms. If 2 extra beds are selected per room, cots cannot be requested.
  • Infant cots will be requested at the hotel, however cots are not guaranteed and are subject to availability at check-in.

 It is possible to perform on GTA XML API a  price and availability search by passenger numbers and room numbers or just by room type and room numbers. If you choose to  check the price and availability using the <SearchHotelPriceRequest> and passing through the exact room requirements; e.g.: 1 twin room or 1 double room with child and 2 single rooms,  it might be necessary to map passenger and/or room numbers to the GTA room type codes. Below are some suggestions how to best achieve this; the room breakdowns listed cover some of the possible scenarios and we have highlighted those that we would recommend as defaults.
