Solo Travel: Making One the Happiest Number

August 16th, 2013 by The JetSetter Team | 2 Comments »

for the freedom solo travel allows—no one to argue over itineraries with, discuss restaurant choices, or split dessert. More and more individuals are embarking on independent vacation experiences because of the freedom of choice they offer.

For many, solo vacation is easy and fun during the daytime, but can become lonely during the night when it might feel uncomfortable to dine at a nice restaurant alone. For these reasons, solo travel might be best suited to a more structured kind of vacation—planned activities and constructed social situations that still provide choice and the opportunity to explore alone (if you choose).

The most successful solo travelers, those that have the most fun, are generally conscious of the age of fellow travelers. For example, a young person may not desire the single companionship of a group of elderly folks (and vice versa). Many companies are conscious of this, and offer excursions to people based on age (for those travelers too awkward to ask their travel companions), a win-win for everybody!

For many solo travelers, luxury tour operations are the ultimate in vacationing. Now, many such businesses are catering to the lone jetsetter. These include planned group sightseeing (which is always optional) but usually provide a service to arrange for a solo or small group tour if that’s more your style. Some even offer private car and driver services for those wishing to get a truly unique (and private) experience.

For the single traveler with an interest in international business, many companies are now offering tours suited for their specific needs. Especially common in China, these trips facilitate meetings with local business people in a variety of industries. If you’re interested in a future in real estate investment, this might be the perfect opportunity to, as Jason Hartman recommends, familiarize yourself with the local properties.

And if you’re still scared of international solo travel, why not start in the United States with Jason Hartman’s Executive Property Tour in Austin, Texas? Take this chance to, in a guided environment that allows for solo travel and exploration time, learn about the real estate market! Pack your bags and get ready to sink your feet into the growing world of independent travel. And, best of all, you won’t have to share that dessert! (photo credit: blmiers2 via photopin cc)
