# Twins - how to share costs?

What is your opinion?  Nine girls (volleyball team) are going to be sharing two adjoining hotel rooms.  The team has two sets of twins (so only seven families).  Should the cost of the hotel rooms be divided by seven or nine? And why?

I would figure out the cost per child. Reason: Each child is still taking a space. Twins or not they will still need a place to sleep.

This. My boys aren't twins, but play on the same traveling team. We pay PER kid.

I would count it as nine. There are nine girls and each one will need a place to sleep.

Will they even allow that many people in a room?  Charge per kid not per family.  Some hotels charge for each additonal person after 2. If that is the case, you have even more reason to charge per person.

Per kid. Therefore the families of twins should pay for two kids.

Divide by the total number of girls.  That way its cost per space, not cost per family.

Depends on the size of the room.  I've travelled a lot and we've found rooms that fit 6 people.

I'd expect it to be price per child.
