Travelling solo can be a liberating experience, encouraging you to make new friends and giving you control of where you go and what you do.
With changing demographics it is also increasingly common for people to travel on their own. However, particularly for female travellers, travelling on your own brings its own risks and challenges. Solo travellers may also want to know how to keep their costs down.
1. If you would prefer to travel in company there are many ABTA travel companies that offer organised tours aimed at solo travellers.
2. Activity holidays in particular guarantee that you will be travelling with like-minded people by the very fact that you have all chosen the same kind of trip and are a great way of meeting people and making new friends.
3. You can also avoid the dreaded single supplement by sharing your room with a fellow traveller, though this is usually optional not obligatory.
