As the tourism industry looks to rebuild in a post-pandemic world, Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold and Costsaver have today announced their commitment to making it easier and better value than ever for solo travellers to return to travel and for travel advisors to tap into new markets and ultimately sell more.
As pent-up travel demand continues to rise, 66% of people say they ‘don’t want to wait for others to see the world’, with 42% stating they ‘want to meet new people’ when they travel.
The solo trend was on the rise pre-pandemic with a 131 per cent increase in Google searches between 2016 and 2019, and the solo travel trend has come back strong over the last few months.
With what the company calls an “already robust solo traveller offering”, the brands are extending the solo value proposition to make it even more accessible than ever before to travel solo.
Solo travellers heading to any of the seven continents, can now not only enjoy the fun, camaraderie and security of any of the The Travel Corporation’s (TTC) open age touring brands but also benefit from the comfort of having their own room with a free or significantly reduced single supplement.
TTC says its brands’ exceptional solo offerings have always provided the perfect balance of included rich experiences and time to explore independently, all with the support of a dedicated Travel Director or Travelling Concierge and the opportunity to share unique experiences with like-minded travellers.
“The free and significantly reduced single supplement offer can be found across Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold and Costsaver on all of our tour series around the globe for 2022 and 2023,” said Gavin Tollman, President of The Travel Corporation.
“We are excited to be able to offer this to solo travellers so they can get back doing what they love, seeing and experiencing the world, with the complete peace of mind they experience when travelling with our all-ages guided brands. Importantly we are happy to also be supporting our agent partners in bringing new offerings to market which will help them sell more,” he concluded.
Solo guests looking to share a room with a same-sex traveller also remains a popular choice for travellers and is available on most trips across Trafalgar, Insight Vacations and Costsaver.
