Solo & Single Travel

Rapidly growing in popularity in recent years amongst adventurers young and old, solo travel is quickly becoming a preferred method of adventure. Whether it is the allure of meeting new like-minded explorers, the space of having accommodation all to yourself, or simply the chance to sightsee at your own pace, solo travel offers a plethora of benefits unique to this style of holiday. Unlike group travel, single travel offers a near-endless amount of freedom and choice. Where you want to explore, what you want to eat, when you want to do it, solo travel allows you to do almost anything you wish without having to stress about whether your friends or relatives will be okay with it too.

The biggest worry about solo travel is the cost, as hotels, resorts, and cruise lines can typically charge an additional single supplement fee as rooms are generally built to host two people. However, hotels, resorts, and cruise lines have recognised the rising prominence of solo travel and often offer a number of suites, rooms, or sailings that forego this single supplement cost. Guests don’t want to be charged extra for wanting to explore by themselves, and these innovations help ensure every style of travel is accounted for. Travel the world your own way and book into a solo holiday today!

Why you need to experience Solo Travel

Solo travel might feel a little daunting for explorers, but once you step aboard your flight or on a ship, you are provided with a unique opportunity to escape from reality and truly treat yourself. If you have never been on a solo holiday, booking on a trip can be scary, but it’s not as solitary as one might expect. Tour operators, resorts, and cruise lines have been increasingly encouraging solo travellers to hop on board over the years with additional benefits catered to singles. Take a look at a couple of reasons why your next holiday must be a solo holiday.

Find new life-long friends and connections

Meeting new friends on your holiday is easily a major draw for most solo travellers. Without the pressure of sticking with your own circle of friends, solo travellers can encounter and socialise with like-minded passengers who share similar interests and beliefs. From fellow solo explorers or a friendly group who are more than happy to invite you to their escapades, solo holidayers will never feel lonely on their trip. So rest easy knowing that there’s always someone keen to make an authentic connection with you!

Explore and holiday your own way

One of the unique benefits for solo travellers is the boundless flexibility they have at their disposal. Want to book into an exciting snorkelling tour in a popular diving site? Take the plunge! Feeling like going hard on the dance floor instead of staying in the hotel suite? Dance away! Thinking about that chocolate muffin you’ve been staring at for the last 15 minutes? No one is going to know! Without the need to consider other peoples interests and preferences, there are simply no limits in choice.

Plenty of activities to keep you busy!

Another worry a solo traveller might have is the fear of boredom as they fly, sail, or drive from port to port. While boredom during these stages might seem like a foregone conclusion, this is simply not true! All it takes is a little preparation - or being able to go out of your comfort zone. For the quieter moments, you can busy yourself by packing reading material, loading up some movies, or some audiobooks or podcasts. If you prefer to be a little social, why not strike up a conversation with fellow travellers or the travel guides adventuring with you? Remember, this holiday is all about you, so be sure to find things and activities which you love to do.

Enjoy a room all to yourself

Whether it’s a purpose-built solo room or a commodious suite, solo travellers have an entire space to themselves to relax and unwind. Place your makeup across the vanity, leave your clothes all over the bed, and kick your feet up across the sofa, the room is yours to do whatever you wish. Moreover, with no one else to share the space, you won’t need to accommodate differing sleeping arrangements or wait for them as they use the bathroom.
