Romance Abroad? Travel for Singles
Are you feeling bold enough to travel solo? Are you looking for someone special? There are a lot of exciting options for travel for singles that will satisfy both your heart and your wanderlust.
Traveling is always a good idea. Especially solo travel, as it’s a great way to get outside your comfort zone, learn self-reliance, and get to know yourself better. Travel for singles is a rapidly growing segment of the industry and there are a lot of tour groups dedicated to those intrepid people who aren’t waiting around for a buddy to book a trip with them. And while in years past most hotels, cruises and tour companies charged extra fees for the single traveler, many are now reducing or even eliminating them in order to accommodate the boom.
Whether you’re embarking on a solo travel adventure just for yourself, or hoping to meet “the one” while sipping espresso in a café in Paris, here are some great resources for travel for singles.
Best Singles Travel – This company offers a variety of tours and trips for singles and solo travelers, including some that are age specific. Whether you’re interested in a singles cruise, an all-inclusive tropical vacation, a fun singles weekend ski trip, or even something as exotic as a trip to Cambodia, they have something for everyone.
G Adventures – Their specialty is small group adventure travel for solo travelers. If you’re looking for a physically challenging trip like biking through Vietnam or hiking in the Alps, G Adventures has what you want. However, they also offer a vast array of trips to suit every lifestyle. And the really good news is that they don’t charge any extra fees for single travelers, but guests are paired together for all hotel accommodations.
