Twin-room occupancy means that you will share the room with another person you have chosen. So, if you book double occupancy for a tour, you have to book for two persons, or you book for yourself and your friend books for
himself /herself.

In either case, you have to indicate your roommate.

If you are going to take a pre- or post-congress tour by yourself, you have to pay the rate for twin-room occupancy plus the rate for single supplement. And you will use a single room during the tour.
