Travelling Alone

Benefits of Travelling Alone

If you are travelling alone for the first time, you may be a bit nervous. Also, friends and family may ask you questions and look at you a little weird. If you are a woman, they may regale you with horror stories. Worse yet if you actually have a family, but want to take some time off for yourself.

Ironically, though, travelling alone allows you to meet people much more easily than would be possible if you were travelling with friends and family. So although you will be “travelling alone”, you will most likely be a lot less alone than you think. Especially when you are travelling “alone” on singles holidays for over 50s.

Travelling Alone

Flexibility

The great thing, however, is that it is all up to you. When you feel like being alone or doing something that only you are interested in, you don’t have to worry about offending anybody, or meshing with your friend’s or family’s schedule. So many opportunities on vacations are missed because of compromises that have to be made for your travel partners. Not so when you are travelling alone.

Travelling alone allows to more fully enjoy your holiday. You can taste-test whatever you want, without your travel partner crinkling their nose in disgust. You can wander the streets of Madrid at 3 am without your travel partner pouting in annoyance.

Also, trips with friends and families seem to generate some sort of fight all the time. Thankfully, that can’t happen when you are travelling alone.

New You

As corny as it sounds, travelling alone also helps you find yourself. Being in a totally new context brings out unexpected and sometimes “unused” sides of yourself that you can discover, or re-discover. It can be a life-changing experience.

For some people, travelling alone is a great way to find someone new as well, romantically or platonically. Quality relationships in our lives are things that should never be taken for granted. If your current circle of family and friends just aren’t doing it for you, then travelling alone can be a great way to make new lasting friends.

Checklist for Travelling Alone

Travelling alone also means that you have to be responsible for all your own things. A good checklist of should include

  • carrying a pocket dictionary or phrasebook with you
  • make copies of all your essential travel documents (passport, health insurance, travel itinerary, tour agent information) to leave behind with someone you trust, in case of an emergency
  • Bring a credit card, along with cash. Make sure to take note of your credit card company’s customer service line in case of loss or theft.
  • Take books, a journal to record your experiences, a camera with extra batteries and an extra memory card, and maps to educate yourself on the layout of the area. These things can make a world of difference.

Tips for Women Travelling Alone

Women travelling alone should also follow some of these guidelines:

  • Make sure you know who will be meeting you at the airport and that arrangements are fully secured beforehand.Be your own best counsel in strange situations. If it doesn’t feel right, don’t do it.
  • Carry good identification, in more than one place.
  • Keep to open and public places, especially at night.
  • Exude confidence and walk purposefully.
  • Avoid appearing like a tourist, walking with maps, guidebooks, and tourist clothes or hairstyles.
  • Don’t wear flashy clothes or jewellery.
  • Tell some white lies so that people don’t know you are alone. When asking for directions, pretend that you are meeting your friend.
  • Don’t let down your guard with very friendly and helpful strangers.

Travelling alone will be a rewarding and extremely enjoyable experience. Live Life to the Fullest!

Single Holidays Over 50

Specialized Single Holidays Over 50

Going with a regular travel and tour agent is probably not the best way you should take your vacation. You need a company that specializes in providing single holidays over 50.

By booking through here, you will not be charged an additional “singles supplement”, either.

Travelling with people around your own age — solo travellers who were also in their 20s in the 1980s — will be great fun. You may not really want to be around other families, or a lot of younger singles whose interests may be far different from your own.

Single Holidays Over 50

By being with others who are also over 50 on single holidays, you won’t be out of place. All too often in other travel groups, solo travellers are seen as somehow “lacking”. There is a bit of awkwardness, and sometimes stupid questions are asked.

That won’t happen when you book specialised single holidays over 50. Instead, you will be surrounded by others who share your zeal for life, joy in discovering new places and meeting new people, who are comfortable with themselves, and share similar life experiences and tastes.

Open to New Experiences

You may be single and open to romance. While these single holidays over 50 are not meant to be dating services, it is not unusual for romances to blossom. The main goal, however, is to provide you with an enjoyable experience.

You may simply want to spend some time alone, rethink where you are in your life, get away from it all and come back with a new perspective. Single holidays are perfect for that.

Maybe you wanted to visit a special place for your whole life and never got a chance to do so before. Now is the best time to fulfill those dreams.

Challenging yourself on a Kenyan Safari, looking at ancient ruins in Macchu Picchu, immersing yourself in bustling Thailand, experiencing the history and romance of Greece and the Mediterranean, crusing down the Nile River and experiencing the wonders of the Pyramids, or having a great time in Las Vegas … whatever you want, there is a singles holiday over 50 for you.

If you have any special needs, let the agent know and they will do their best to accommodate you. If you want to meet your fellow travellers before you go, log in to the special Facebook page.

Take time out, discover the world, re-discover yourself, live life to the fullest! Enjoy your single holidays over 50. Click on the links to find the right package for you.

The booking deadlines for the great singles holidays featured on the right are almost here, so make sure you book now to secure your place.
