Search Tips and Helpful Links for Solo Travelers
After reading this introduction, Click Here to start your solo travel search!
See below our step-by-step quick, easy road map how to get started.
Please note our Solo Travel Pricing Tracker provides three options:
1. You can make a selection in each drop down menu for “Location Area”, “Tours” or trip type and “Supplement Pricing Type”. You will receive 5-6 exact matches.
2. You can enter a “Location Area” only and No Preference on “Tours” or trip type and “Supplement Pricing Type”. That will give a very detailed geographic listing, up to 170+, of our previously reviewed travel providers with no to low single supplements for one Location, such as Europe.
3. You can take a blended approach by specifying a “Location Area” and either a “Tour” or trip type or “Supplement Pricing Type”. By combining 2 out of the 3 search terms, the result can give a detailed but streamlined list of approximately 25-26 responses that are a fit. The choice is up to you!
How Does the Solo Travel Pricing Tracker Work?
This is a user-friendly basic approach that gives solos an easy way to search by destination and type of trip linked with five different solo pricing styles.
Our eight broad destinations cover the globe from the Polar Regions to Oceania and from Europe to Asia, North and South America.

5 Solo Travel Pricing Methods:
- No single supplement specials-Book far in advance since these limited spaces go fast.
- Lower or reduced single supplements-They vary by destination and underlying lodging prices.
- Sharing to avoid a single supplement-Absent a match, there may still be a single supplement.
- Solo-priced lodging/cabins-Check if the offer is for “single” rooms or solo-priced standard rooms.
- Single parent offerings-We only found these in Europe. Terms do vary so take a look at what is covered.
