8 Websites You Must Visit Before You Travel Solo
Some travel tours also charge a single supplement, so going it alone can be expensive.
But worry not, you don’t have to cancel your travel plans. There are websites that connect solo travellers with one another.
You can make friends, book shared accommodation and arrange activities all before you get on the plane!
1. Find people by location with seniorsholidaytravel.com.au
This website allows you to connect with others by location, date and type of holiday.
Whether you’re cruising through Europe or biking in Asia, you’ll be able to recognise at least one friendly face.
2. Book a tour with other solo travellers on encountertravel.com.au
Whether you’re looking for love or just want to meet up with other liked-minded people, these tours allow you to do both.
They offer a wide range of experiences all over the world, exclusively for solo travellers.

This site is perfect if you’re a fan of caravan holidays.

4. Stay safe and register your travel plans on smartraveller.gov.au
Travelling alone comes with some risks. Being without a friend or partner means there’s no one to report you missing or help you in a difficult situation.
Stay safe by logging your travel plans online so people back home know you’re safe.
5. Make friends with backpackers on yha.com.au
Backpacking isn’t just for the young. It’s also for the young at heart.
Staying in hotels will save you hundreds on accommodation. It’s also a great way to connect with people from all walks of life.
You can connect with other backpacking seniors on this website.
6. Save cash with fellow cruisers on hollandamerica.com
And the offer still stands even if they can’t find a same-sex occupant for you to share with.
Some cruise lines even pay you to take a trip with them. You can read more about it here.
7. Tops tips for female travellers on journeywoman.com
As a woman, travelling solo comes with a few more risks. You’re more likely to be targeted for theft, scams and other crimes.
But the risks vary depending on the location.
8. Save money with solo travel specialists solotraveller.com.au
Travelling by yourself can be pricey. Tour companies often charge a single supplement to cover the costs of reserving a place for just one person.
But this company offers holiday packages, tours and cruises specifically for singles.
So you won’t be paying through the nose if you decide to travel solo.
