Top Solo Travel Deals-France-No Single Supplements: France is an expensive place to find solo deals. So overnight stays are hard on any budget. The question is how can you find single traveler deals for hotels and B&B’s? While Paris is not known for cheap solo travel deals, there are ways to find budget single traveler packages in France.
Start with our personal tips below.
Then take a look at the hotels below which we are featuring for best single traveler deals. Those include solo deals from Paris to the French Riviera and from the chateau country of Tours and historic Normandy.
So for more, go to the links set out below for our detailed posts and packages here on SoloTrekker4U. For all of our ninety-nine single travel deals for hotels in France, go to our free, user-friendly search tool, the SoloTravelPricingTracker.
Top Solo Travel Deals-France No Single Supplements:
First for budget solo travel, always go off-season. Even in Paris, in winter many hotels are up to fifty percent off. Then take a look at why you picked France for your singles vacation. If you are focused on museums and galleries, cooking/language classes or shopping for discounts, the cold weather will not be a problem. That’s a good reason to grab cheap solo travel vacation packages.
Secondly, for more solo vacation deals, especially in Europe, always ask for “one room, one adult”. The reason is that unlike the United States, most of the European Union and its neighbors discount the price for one traveler. This is in contrast to the US custom of charging by the room or “rack” rate. Since most travel is priced based on two travelers, couples/pairs have a built-in advantage. By booking for one, check the same place and same date for “two adults”. When there is no single supplement (or other price increase for one traveler), we call those “solo priced”. If a “Single Room” is offered, be sure you are OK with the size of the space offered.
Most importantly, skip the high prices in the central business district. On one trip to Paris, I stayed at an airport motel. There was easy public transport into Paris at all hours. My modern high rise hotel did not have Old World charm. However, it had a gym and other modern amenities providing me with an unheard of cheap solo travel deal!

- Under the patronage of Renaissance King Francois I, Leonardo da Vinci spent the last three years of his life there and was buried at the Chateau du Clos Lucé.
- While Chambord is the largest of the Loire castles, Chenonceau is a tourist favorite. This true fantasy castle over the Loire River gained fame under Henri II, the second son of Francois I. He and his queen Catherine de Medici and mistress Diane de Poitiers were locked in a life-long love triangle. Upon his death, his dowager queen promptly ousted Diane from Chenonceau. (For a fascinating book about this complex story, I highly recommend “The Serpent and the Moon“. I had the opportunity to hear the author, Princess Michael of Kent, discuss the book and its famous characters based on her extensive research.)
- During World War II, it was the perfect place for intrigue. One side of the castle was on Occupied French soil and the other Free French. It was said that the opposing sides could use the Chateau to dash back and forth potentially undetected!
- Hotel Le Blason is set in a 15th-century house in the heart of Amboise.
