Why Solo Travel?
In the last couple of years, solo travel has exploded in the traveler world. Gone are the days feeling like you can only take that bucket list trip if you have someone else to go with. Solo travel means freedom, independence, and out of your comfort zone experiences. It’s for everyone! In my travels, I’ve met hundreds of solo travelers. From 18-year-olds running through gap years to retirees finally taking the trip of their dreams, it’s truly a mix. Here we’ll tackle that nagging fear that solo travel will be lonely, read more for how it can be anything but!
The number one question I receive when I tell others about my solo travel adventures is, “but doesn’t it get lonely?”. HAH. Solo travel can be many things, but lonely is not one of the adjectives I would use. Granted, if you can’t even begin to imagine sitting down for a meal by yourself, solo travel may prove to be a bit difficult. But that’s where you can start! Go out to eat by yourself or see that movie in the theater that no one else wants to. Solo travel within your own city and it will open your eyes to how fun it can be!
Then for those who have solo traveled before, have you ever been hit with the “increased price for individual travelers” or paid more for a tour solely because you didn’t have someone to split the room? Lucky for us, tour agencies are starting to notice the influx of solo travelers as well. Both G Adventures and On The Go Tours currently excel at the solo traveler game specializing in providing group travel experiences for any and all types of travelers. See more below!
G Adventures is a tour company not like the rest. Their focus on responsible travel that provides “off the beaten path” experiences for their travelers is truly unique. Even more admirable is their commitment to providing the same experiences for solo travelers. To aid in avoiding pesky extra private charges, they help pair you up with a roommate of the same sex. Not only do you avoid additional fees, but it’s almost like a bonus automatic travel buddy to meet! Though if you would rather have your own room still, they’ll happily provide that as well at a great price. In addition, G Adventures is known for its small group travel tours. This is perfect for those looking to make new friends in a more intimate group setting! Still not fully convinced? Read further for many more reasons to travel with G Adventures!
“I’m used to traveling on my own, so I wasn’t sure if going with a group of strangers was going to work for me. I was wrong. You get company when you need it, independence when you don’t.”
