This actually went over phenomanelly! People are happy to bring someone they would enjoy travelling with but arnt necessarily someone you know. This also gives the single person an opportunity to have a travelling companion for tours and dinner partners. We are pretty relaxed and thought this was a good solution. Also one group rented a junior suite. So one individual is staying in the bed out in the main room and the couple is staring the enclosed bedroom. Saving on money compared to the astronomical price for a single to rent.
Hope this helps.
