Have you felt the itch to travel? You’re definitely not alone.
And it’s why people aren’t waiting for friends and family to join them on a trip – they’re going solo!
In fact, the travel site Booking.com reports that, in normal years, about 1-in-8 bookings were by solo travelers…… But this year, the rate has DOUBLED to 1 in 4!
And Google searches for “solo travel” have also doubled!
The reason? According to the world’s largest travel marketing agency, MMGY, after enduring two years of travel restrictions, a lot of people are feeling antsy to travel somewhere – anywhere!
Solo vacations also offer one of the best opportunities to travel “with intent.” Meaning, you can explore a personal goal – whether it’s self-improvement, crossing more destinations off your bucket list, or simply taking time to de-stress! People also tend to report more satisfaction with their travel experiences when they’re NOT trying to keep other people happy.
And that’s the latest travel trend: Solo vacations!
