Solo travel can be one of the most liberating forms of travel, but it needn't be a daunting one. If 2020 has taught us anything, it's to embrace experiences and opportunities, and solo travel is one we believe everyone should try.
There's a range of benefits associated with solo travel. The joy of solo travel is that it's all about YOU! Whatever your travel preferences, from your favourite type of cuisine to your ideal way to spend the day, solo travel allows you to be the star of the show and make the most of your adventure, whatever that may look like.
Perhaps the most wonderful part of travelling as an individual is that it provides an opportunity to meet new people from a range of backgrounds and cultures. So often, our most memorable travel experiences are thanks to the people we meet along the way, while we explore incredible destinations and immerse ourselves in different cultures. When travelling alone, you're far more likely to get chatting to a local and discover their top tips and hidden gems, offering a chance to experience a destination the authentic way.
If you're slightly hesitant about the option of solo travel, choosing to do so as part of an escorted holiday gives you the best of both worlds - the ultimate compromise! Not only does it give you the element of freedom, but also the reassurance that you have like-minded travel companions there with you, as well as an expert Tour Manager to take care of all the details so that you can simply relax and enjoy the ride.
On a selected number of our departures, including the Glacier Express All Inclusive and The Isle of Man, travellers can benefit from no solo supplement, meaning you won't be charged for the pleasure of opting to travel on your own - there's no better excuse to make your Travel Resolution a reality and experience the joy of solo travel.
