Encounter Travel was founded on a simple idea; that solo travellers could join travel groups with like minded travellers – no longer on the fringe of groups made up of couples.

Back in 2006, we stepped in to fill the void for solo travellers. Founder, Justine Waddington has solo traveller experiences over more than twenty years and to date has visited 55 countries across the globe.

Since humble beginnings of a one woman show, it wasn’t too long before our travel team grew. Based in our Sydney city office, our travel team is made up of senior travel consultants, our groups department managing the in’s and out’s of your travel plans, office support staff and lead by the company founder, Justine Waddington.

We bring the colour of travel to solo travellers - witnessing friendships blossoms, seeing new doors open, and listen to the stories of our intrepid solo travellers encountering unimaginable discoveries.
