In the 2-period Travelling Salesman Problem some nodes, called double nodes, are visited in both of two periods while the remaining ones, called single nodes, are visited in either one of the periods. In this paper we study the case in which a balance constraint is also introduced. We require that the difference between the number of visited nodes in the two periods must be below a fixed threshold. Moreover, we suppose that distances between nodes are Euclidean. The problem is NP-hard, and exact methods, now available, appear inadequate. Here, we propose three heuristics. Computational experiences and a comparison between the algorithms are also given.
