Solo travellers are most keen to head abroad

Solo travellers are most keen to head abroad.

A new study by Solo Traveler has revealed that more than three quarters (77 per cent) of solo travellers would travel internationally again if they didn't have to quarantine at their chosen destination, whilst 61 per cent said they would travel again as soon as a vaccine is available.

Janice Waugh, publisher of Solo Traveler, said: "The response to this year's survey was overwhelming. We received more than double the responses compared to previous years with 80 percent of the respondents being women. This demonstrates a huge pent-up desire for travel."

Brian FitzGerald, CEO and president of Overseas Adventure Travel, added: "Solo travellers are by nature independent and bold, and that's reflected in their need to get back out into the world. Solo travellers are also telling us how important it is to make travel sustainable and supportive of local communities. They don't simply want to see the world - they want to shape it too."
