Why wouldn't there be a travel company exclusively for solo travellers?

Traditionally, solo travellers have only had the option of joining tours often dominated by couples travelling together.   These days, solo travel is an increasing trend and we are here to exclusively cater for the solo traveller . 

Since 2006, we have been creating holiday groups for solo travellers. In fact, that's all we do.  We are a travel company 100% dedicated to solo travellers.

We are Australian owned and operated and since starting out in 2006, every year we are thrilled to introduce more holidays and more options for solo travellers. 

We say that we are for the 'solo traveller that likes to share their journey'. Sure, there's those among us that are avid solo travellers in the true sense of the word;  prepared to take off on solitary adventures to the farthest places of the continent. But, for many the idea of planning and heading off on such a solitary trip may not be such an appealing option. This is where we step in.  We create the group and the rest is easy...you just choose which trip takes your fancy.

Solo traveller group experiences have so many advantages:

  • share your holiday with other likeminded soloists
  • feel secure in the fact that you have the group support
  • revel in the social dynamics of group holidays
  • without doubt, make new friends, that often last well past the end date of your holiday
  • no need to wait until you find a friend that agrees to travel with you; with scheduled group departures you have an instant group of new travel buddies waiting
  • our group leaders take care of the detail; you can focus on enjoying yourself
