Sometimes travelling alone can be a daunting thought but don’t let that put you off! There are a plethora of wonderful options for today’s solo traveller, whether you really want to travel on your own, as part of a tour group or on a cruise.
Solo travel has many advantages.
It’s easy to design your trip when you don’t have anyone else’s interests to consider. You get to go wherever you want to go and do whatever you want to do. There are no compromises – you make all the choices!
You are also more likely to meet new people as a solo traveller – both locals and fellow travellers. That can mean more genuine experiences with people of diverse backgrounds.
Solo travel will test your limits, push you out of your comfort zone but the bonus is you will discover new abilities that will help you to develop more as a person. You will also gain a new sense of confidence and empowerment.
Traditionally solo travellers in hotels, on tours or on cruise ships have to pay a single supplement that can range anywhere from 10 – 100% of the rate that two people would pay.
Travel companies have started to notice the growth in solo travel and they are responding with offerings to attract solo travellers. Many tour companies and cruise lines waive or reduce the single supplements for select journeys. Some also offer room share programs where they’ll match up solo travellers of the same gender and some cruise lines are now even offering solo cabins.
