Going Solo on Your Trip
Going Solo on Your Trip
Travelling solo is becoming more popular with each year, and not just with the gap year students or over 50s but with the full-time workers too. This is encouraging holiday providers to create more trips that are solo-friendly for lots of different age groups. There are many reasons why a solo trip may appeal - some people may have a partner who just doesn’t want to go, whilst others may be on their own travels and are looking to tag on a group tour to meet people or so that they don’t miss anything. For some, there is safety in numbers. The idea of travelling alone might be scary but the security and experience of a group tour is far more appealing. For more mature travellers, travelling solo may have been off-putting due to high single supplements, but with a fantastic range of tours that keep these fees to a minimum, they can travel alone in style with their favourite providers.
