It’s not just students and young people who are happy to embark on a solo adventure. According to a new survey commissioned by leading UK adventure tour operator, Exodus, which specialises in small group holidays, those between the age of 45-55 are in fact most likely to book a trip to travel without their partner, friends or family (27% of 45-55 year olds compared to only 18% of 18-24 year olds and 25-34 year olds).
The survey also showed that 41% of parents would be happy to leave their partner and children at home in order to go on holiday, with 57% of working professionals* also stating they would be happy to travel solo.
The survey results coincide with Exodus’ launch of free single supplements (worth up to £500), meaning solo travellers can join a group adventure holiday and have their own room.
A spokesperson for Exodus said, “We have seen a huge rise in the number of travellers who wish to join one of group adventures specifically designed for solo travellers, so the survey results are no surprise. In particular we have seen an increasing number of solo women aged 45+ joining our group trips to experience something completely new.
“Some of our most popular trips for solo travellers include soaking up the culture of Cuba, trekking up Kilimanjaro and cycling in Italy. We also see lots of our solo travellers treat themselves to regular solo trips. Many are initially hesitant about joining a group trip solo, but soon get into the swing of travelling with like-minded people. It can be addictive.”
Exodus is currently offering free single supplements to solo travellers, who wish to have their own hotel room. To book, call Exodus on 0845 863 9601 or visit www.exodus.co.ukand quote single supplement offer. Offer subject to availability
