Why travel solo with Insight Vacations?

Tick destinations off your bucket list

Tick destinations off your bucket list

Are you dreaming of visiting Italy, Egypt or Ireland? Or other amazing worldwide destinations? We all have places that we yearn to see but have not because we cannot find someone to go with – or cannot find a suitable time for everyone. Also, in recent years we have not had the freedom and our bucket lists have grown! Now you are ready to get back out, so why wait for others? With Insight you have a fantastic range of destinations and dates to choose from.

Choose to do what suits your mood

Choose to do what suits your mood

Going solo in a group tour means getting the perfect mix of situations to suit your mood. Perhaps one day you’re feeling gregarious and want to wander with the crowds; have a drink, dinner and a laugh. But another time you might want to sink into the background and have some down time to yourself. As a solo traveler on a group tour, you can have the best of both worlds.

Discover a sense of self

Discover a sense of self

Feelings of freedom and independence expand personal growth and whether you are an experienced independent traveler, or a first time solo-er, the feelings of freedom and independence are unbeatable and empowering.

Meet new people

Meet new people

Traveling on your own is a great way to meet new people. Away from the bubble of friends and family at home, the opportunities for new friendships and connections are enhanced on a premium guided tour. For meeting like-minded travelers – going solo in a small group is great. Statistically, you’re very likely to meet some like-minded folks in any crowd, but when that crowd consists of people who have all opted to book the same tour as you, chances are you’re going to have quite a bit in common.

Security in a guided tour

You’ll also experience great dining, with lots of variety and choice, so you will never be left out in finding authentic local meals. The security in a guided tour allows you to do what you want while knowing there are people looking out for you.

Small group sizes
