    Why we love solo holidays

    Solo holidays? For some it may be quite a daunting aspect, for others it’s a quest for adventure. There are many reasons as to why going away solo can be an enlightening experience. From learning more about yourself to broadening your horizons and gaining confidence. Not to mention, it’s one of the best ways to put yourself out there and meet new people. Choose from a range of cheap holiday destinations, explore near and far and most importantly have the time of your life! If you’re still not convinced, find out why we love solo holidays.

    Make your own itinerary

    We’ve all been on holidays with a group… disagreements can happen. From where you wish to eat, to where you want to see. You might even find yourselves split into two groups, the ones who like sightseeing and the ones who don’t. Regardless, it can all get a little bit complicated, especially when the aim is for everyone to enjoy themselves. So, one of the easiest ways to get around that is to embark on an independent travel adventure. Do things your way and your way only! Research the places you would like to visit, the foods you’d like to try and the things you’d like to do. Then, plan out your own holiday with only yourself in mind. There’ll be no need to worry about anyone else as you get to take control of your very own holiday.

    Promotes independence

    Keeping in mind that you get to do things your way on a solo holiday. There’s no doubt that you gain a new sense of independence during a singles holiday. It’s a great way to build up your confidence and reinforce the fact that you can enjoy your own company and have fun when travelling alone. Whichever destination you choose, you’ll most likely be taking public transport and exploring different town and cities by yourself. Doing things on your own abroad adds a new layer of independence that you wouldn’t necessarily get at home. Discovering a new country or city by yourself can be a bit scary at first, but the more you get used to it during your holiday, the more independent you’ll feel!

    Reduces stress levels

    The usual daily routine can take its toll. So, doing something out of the ordinary can in fact relieve you of some of the stress related issues you might be experiencing. Stop glaring at those laptop and mobile screens and book yourself on a solo getaway where you can well and truly re-energise yourself. There’s no doubt that getting away from it all gives us the added boost that we need. There’s no better way to do that than embarking on a solo adventure. Beat the large groups of people and be surrounded by your own company. Release the tension and reduce your stress levels with a singles holiday.

    Meet new people

    Another great reason to head off on a solo holiday is because it’s a fantastic way to meet new people from all paths of life. Even though you’ll be jetting off by yourself, you can’t escape others who may be around you. Depending on your likes and interests whilst on holiday, finding others which share them won’t be hard. For example, you might find yourself on a walking tour of a historic city. No doubt, they’ll be other travellers on it too, including those who have also travelled alone. There are plenty of activities and tours which can bring you together with others. Who knows… you might find a friend for life!
