If you are thinking about trying solo travel for the first time, read on to discover Carolyn’s top solo travel tips.
Start at home: “I always recommend that, if you want to travel solo, start at home,” Carolyn advises. “Go out and have dinner by yourself, take a hotel or an Air BnB room for a night. Don’t go right away by yourself to a big city and intimidate yourself.”
Take a group tour: “A group tour like this is wonderful for women,” she says of our women only tours. “Going out on your own can be a courageous step. Insight have decades of experience developing tours, and resources available should anything go wrong, especially as travel is now so unpredictable. Not having to worry about where you are going, where you are staying or how you’re going to get there takes away a lot of the anxiety.
“Having a Travel Director who has expert knowledge of your destination makes your first experience so much better. A group tour is therefore a really viable option for women who want a stress-free experience, especially if it is your first solo trip.
