Solo travelers finding their way to all-inclusive resorts

February 16, 2015

The numbers of people traveling alone are growing, as many remain single longer and others increasingly opt to travel independently. According to the U.S. Travel Association, solo travelers—those who travel without companions—account for nearly 11 percent of adult leisure travelers.

There are many perks for the solo traveler…yet the dreaded singles supplement still poses a formidable financial as well as psychological barrier for those booking an all-inclusive stay for a party of one.

An article I recently wrote for All Inclusive (February 11, 2015), outlines some options for solo travelers considering an all-inclusive stay.

    I appreciate this post, Irene. I’ve gotten more comfortable traveling alone, but as you say, the single supplement can be prohibitive.

      It can be a real disincentive on cruise ships, too, but some segments of the industry are trying to create incentives for solo travel.

    I have traveled through Italy alone and must say that it is an easy country to navigate as a solo traveler. More and more of my co-bloggers are solo travelers as well. I see the travel industry making great strides to accommodate the solo traveler, and its inspiring to see us embraced in a much greater perspective with so many options available to us.
