Solo Travel Forum & Find a Travel Buddy Brand New
In our small, but fine Solo Travel Forum for solo travelers, singles & friends you can exchange tips or meet with other solo travelers, find a travel buddy to travel a part of the way together, meet for a drink at the beach bar, find a travelmate who joins or joined one of the tours for solo travelers on Solo Travel, share your travel experiences with other solo travelers…
Rules & Advices:
Please always stay friendly and don’t forget to say thanks if someone gives you a good travel advice. Not wanted here are links to commercial pages outside of Solo Travel or dating posts. Warning: Name your exact location and travel period just in a private message to someone you’ve made sure to be trustworthy. If someone is behaving incorrectly, let us know.
Your profile besides your posts is only visible for also logged in, checked and approved users. You can delete your profile at any time easily here and also request that all your posts be deleted. Also, if you click on your own profile next to your posts, you will find a link to the options for deleting yourself.
Why Facebook Login only?
This community for solo travelsers should not only enable the exchange of useful, trustworthy travel information and tips, but also concrete meetings with other solo travelers on the road or possibly even the planning and doing of whole trips (or parts of it) together. In order to assess the unknown online counterpart as quickly as possible (as regards trust and compatibility in terms of character, age, interests, etc.), we believe it makes sense to rely on relatively realistic Facebook profiles.
In general, however, we are in favour of anonymous and thus freer (albeit of course respectful) online expressions of opinion (above all on political issues) and clearly against non-anonymity on the net prescribed from above (especially by politicians). In the case of possible criminal offences, authorities will find someone “anonymous” for the general public anyways – so it’s not really necessary for the neighbour or potentially someone hostile to attribute an expressed opinion to one’s own person…
We will make it as easy as possible to delete your data at any time or to get a summary of the saved data (like forum posts) if you wish. Just have a look at your profile or write us (also suggestions or positive feedback are very welcome!).
Why not directly on Facebook then?
There’s thousands of Facebook groups, but there you’ll probably quickly be flooded with irrelevant posts, notifications and spam of other users. In a self-designed forum we have more design possibilities (as regards content as well as visually) and can therefore offer more structure and clarity (e.g. by creating subgroups for certain countries or depending on your emerging interests in discussion topics). Apart from that, we always find it nice (and delightful in terms of results!) when something is done by “little ones” if they can do it at least as well as the “big ones”! This usually requires a lot of courage and willingness to take risks, but in the end it often brings along advantages for everyone, because size is not always necessary or good in order to achieve better results (think of a nice family-run restaurant or an “indie” location provided and designed with love for the detail in comparison to a large, commercial one, for example…).

Traveling alone? You’re not alone!
You want to travel alone because your better half or your friends are not motivated – or simply because of the special experience? You’re not alone! Already 11% of worldwide travelers are solo travelers. Most of them are women who want to escape from everyday life on their travels, decide for themselves and want to be themselves. And solo travelers are by no means just young singles: many are in a relationship and the average age of solo travelers is statistically around 54 years! Adventurousness seems to go more with mature femininity than with young masculinity 😉
“Today, more and more travelers are going solo – and they’re not who you might expect them to be. Some 24 percent of people traveled alone on their most recent overseas leisure vacation, up from 15 percent in 2013 … While the stereotypical solo traveler has traditionally been single and looking, a solo traveler these days is just as likely, if not more likely, to be married or in a committed relationship.”
The New York Times
“More woman are interested in solo travel then men. Each year, 9 million American women travel overseas alone. 72% of lady travelers in 2014 were enthusiastic about traveling solo … Of the world’s traveling population, 11% are solo travelers … a 134% increase in solo travelers since 2008 … The average solo traveler’s age is 54.”
Despite the large and growing number of solo travelers, the touristic offers are still lagging behind, making it more difficult and expensive to travel alone:
“It’s surprising, then, that the single traveler continues to be largely ignored by mainstream tour operators or forced to pay an unfairly high single supplement.”
The Telegraph, 2015
We are therefore looking for and negotiating solo travel deals with little or no single supplement and services especially attractive and affordable for solo travelers. On solotravel.cc you will find critically hand-picked travel deals, which we would also like to book ourselves. This means e. g. hotels, packages or tours with a superfair price-performance ratio and always a reliably good quality (comfortable room for single use, friendly and clean accommodation in a very good location, very good rating, etc.).
In addition, you have the possibility to exchange information in the small but nice travel forum with other solo travelers and to find possibly nice fellow travelers or solo travelers currently traveling.
Our selected travel offers with little or no single room surcharges can of course also be used for traveling with friends and if you want to enjoy your own room! Sufficient single room/single user contingent must be given though 😉
The more people who travel alone are visibly interested in our work and book with us, the better we can represent their interests and negotiate directly with hotels and tour operators for attractive, suitable and favourable offers for solo travelers! Therefore please use our travel deals & practical booking tools, like our Facebookpage, subscribe to our Newsletter or recommend Solo Travel via Facebook or via e-mail! THANK YOU – together we can make it 😉
