Holidays are always going to be a fantastic experience wherever you’re heading to, but especially when you’re travelling in a group, it can be hard to please all of the people all of the time, so to speak.
So if you’ve ever found yourself frustrated when on hols with your friends about having to cater to the tastes of so many people, have you ever considered the advantages of travelling solo? Get inspired to suit yourself and book your next trip.
The destination is going to be totally up to you, so whether you want to visit a favourite place you’ve previously visited, or somewhere new, the choice really is yours. When it comes to organising a group, often the destination can prove the first point of contention, especially with varying budgets. When you travel alone, those problems completely disappear.
Your accommodation is also another thing that can be that little bit more simple you when travelling solo. For instance if you love budget yet friendly B&Bs but your friends prefer more luxurious accommodation, you don’t have to worry about meeting in some middle ground which isn’t quite satisfactory. You can also more easily switch it up – like a couple of days at an Air BnB and a couple at a hotel.
And happily enough when you do decide to travel alone, your time is your own too. Everyone has of course got different interests, and while museums could be up your street, others could prefer hitting the shops. When you only have to please yourself though, you don’t need a schedule, just a list of things you’d like to do. It really is as simple as that.
And probably one of the biggest bonuses of enjoying a holiday on your own, is the fact that you can go when you want. There’s no pesky matching up of holiday dates and booking flights at the same time so you can get seats together.
If you’re a bit adventurous, love exploring new places, and meeting new people, then travelling solo could be the perfect holiday experience that you’ve been looking for, so get your trip for one booked!
