Why

These days we are all experiencing a severe personal and economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The focus should certainly be on health care and mutual help and care at the moment. But at the same time we have to keep ourselves in good spirits to have energy for this difficult time and to prepare for better times to hopefully come soon!

One way of distraction as well as support for travel companies that are hit particularly hard by the crisis and the quasi travel stop (like also Solo Travel), is to devote oneself to beautiful travel opportunities and to plan the necessarily postponed holiday.

At present, it is difficult to predict how long the problems will last (closed borders, risk of infection, cancelled flights, etc.). However, this is precisely why many travel providers are offering useful “crisis booking options”, crisis deals so to say.

Thus, there are often considerably extended and simplified cancellation options offered. These allow you to cancel the booked tour, vacation, flight, hotel etc. sometimes without giving any reason until relatively shortly before departure (for if you still feel insecure until then or the situation in general is still uncertain).

What you have to pay particular attention to in this time of crisis, despite extended cancellation options or the like, is the solidity of the companies you book with (or possibly an appropriate travel insurance, which might protect you financially in the event of possible bankruptcies). Due to the high competition and price pressure in the travel industry, it is unfortunately generally not uncommon that insolvencies occur (think of low-cost airlines, but also of large corporations such as Thomas Cook). And due to the current crisis situation, further insolvencies are to be expected.

In the following review of “crisis deals” we will therefore limit ourselves to our selected, high-quality travel partner companies, which we clearly trust to survive the crisis without problems.

We hope the information about “Crisis Deals” below will help you to use the current “house arrest” productively to plan your next trip and to book it safely despite the crisis – or at least to pleasantly dream of it.

Maybe you can save yourself some money by booking early (and safely) despite the current crisis, before the “run” on travel offers starts after the hopefully soon end of the crisis. In any case, by booking soon, you are giving some hope to travel companies as well as to the people in your travel destination and you’ll support them in recovering from the crisis!

* Deals and prices are subject to availability and can change at any time. All deal and booking advance information above is orientative and meant to help you with most relevant content, but with no guarantee of correctness. Details may have changed since the time of publication or last update of this deals page. Images are for illustrative purposes only. Like any booking platform, we get a small part of the revenues our selected booking partners receive. This doesn’t increase the price for you, our quality booking partners simply have to share the revenue they receive anyways with us! Instead of being more expensive, your bookings through Solo Travel should be accompanied by more beautiful trips and significant savings, hopefully as intended, thanks to our ongoing efforts to provide you with the best possible booking tools, offers and prices. Additionally, you indirectly, i.e. without extra costs, support our engagement for Solo Travelers! The more bookings, the better we can work and the better argument we have for travel providers, tour operators, airlines, hotels and more to offer great deals for solo travelers & friends. Heartfelt thanks for any booking ❤
