Solo Traveler

Who'd have thought it was ever possible that nearly 50% of Americans would ever consider taking a vacation on their own? Well according to latest statistics more and and more Americans are considering alone.

As in the rest of the world there has been a major shift towards people living on their own. This is particularly true in the Western World. It was considered a European thing but not so anymore as Americans are often finding themselves living alone. So along with solo living arrangements this is being translated into solo activities, like taking a vacation.

Popular Solo Travel Desinations for Americans

As you might expect Americans tend to like nearby destinations and this is no different for solos. Mexico has long been a favourite with U.S. vacationers and solo travelers are also flocking there for the sunshine and Spanish culture. Canada is also growing as a poular solo destination too.


A little further afield and Americans consider countries such as Australia and New Zealand as popular places to visit alone.


We always recommend taking travel insurance over 80 and medical insurance when you travel overseas too. Being without travel insurance can leave you open to huge medical bills and ruin more than your trip!
