“There are no limits on how and where to travel,” says Groups Travel Coordinator Leslie McInnis. “We work closely with our preferred partners and tour operators, and we always try to get the best rates.”
She notes that solo travel and women-only travel is more popular than ever.
Solo travel can be done in a group. It can consist of booking flights and hotel together, then having the days to explore on your own, or you can book a complete package that may include travelling with others.
“There are so many options for any traveller,” says Leslie.
One of the top concerns about solo travel is safety. Picking the right destination can make all the difference with some places more suited to solo travel than others. The favourite destination of most solo travellers is Europe.
“I believe that the solo traveller is influenced by movies and books such as Eat, Pray, Love, Down the Nile or Into the Wild, to mention a few,” says Leslie.
The best part about solo travel is that you get to choose where you want to go without compromise on destination or timeframe. If travelling with a tour or group, you get to meet like-minded travellers, which is the best of both worlds.
“As we say, travel solo, not alone!,” says Leslie.
