2015 is set to be the year of the Solo Traveller, and if you have always dreamed of travelling world on your own, or with a group of like-minded travellers on an escorted tour, there are 100’s of different options available for your next summer holiday.
No longer aimed at the 18-30 market, the Single’s Holidays of today are designed to cater for mature travellers with refined tastes, and with many escorted tour specialists offering incentives to singles, divorcees and widows, the average age of the Solo Traveller in 2015 is a mere 54 years young!
When it comes to holiday trends, solo travellers are looking for adventure and exotic destinations in 2015! Overseas cycling holidays, trekking in Nepal, hiking Kilimanjaro, African Safaris, Gorilla Trekking in Rwanda and Uganda, and sailing tours are at the top of many single travellers bucket lists, and with a growing number of hotels ditching those annoying supplements, single travellers are less likely to be penalised for requesting their own room.
Meditation holidays, yoga holidays, cooking holidays and creative writing holidays are growing in popularity too, so if you would like to spend your summer break learning a new skill or getting in shape, you can do so on one of the many singles holidays available.
Solo travellers are no longer frowned upon, but admired and respected both at home and overseas, so don’t take a ‘Staycation’ this year – spread your wings and head off to that far-flung destination you have always dreamed of – you won’t be alone!
