Once you’ve decided to take a solo trip, finding a suitable package or travel solution which doesn’t cost a fortune, is easier said than done. However, there are options out there if you know where to look.
Tours for singles
aRendezvous operates singles only tours but don’t be put off by thinking that its goal is purely to match make between travel companions. While some travellers on these tours may be single and looking for love, there are also people who are happy being on their own but who like to travel with others, or those who are part of a couple but their partner doesn’t want to, or can’t travel. aRendezvous operates tours within a specific age range to try and ensure like-minded individuals travel together, but will happily consider those out with the age range if deemed suitable.

Solo travel – Asia
Asia is one of the most fascinating continents to visit but when faced with going there alone, many people would have second thoughts. Travel IndoChina arranges small group tours, with numbers varying between 12 and 18, to all areas of Asia. Cambodia, India, Japan and Vietnam are just some of the countries of which you can enjoy a flavour. Travel Indo China also offers a ‘willing to share’ option, where, if you are happy to share with someone, you don’t pay a single supplement. And the bonus is that if no one is available to share, you get a room to yourself with no supplement.

Solo travellers club
Many travel agencies have responded to the need for affordable solo travel deals by forming solo travellers clubs. Through such clubs you can meet like-minded travel companions before you head off on a trip, suggest places to visit and find someone to share with, thus avoiding single supplements. Seniors Holiday Travel is one such agency which has formed a club and there are planned trips to Egypt and Italy next year.
