Although travelling alone may sound daunting, solo travel is continuing to rise in popularity. There could be numerous reasons why someone is travelling independently, and solo travellers come from all walks of life, but they all share the same passion – a desire to see the world!
Travelling alone shouldn’t stop you from seeing the world and discovering amazing destinations. Check out our reasons why you should consider a Solo Traveller Holiday.
Now that Covid vaccinations are progressing, very soon the world will be opening again for some well-deserved travel experiences. Donegal Daily have partnered with Travel Department to select some of the best Solo tours for you.

Time for yourself
You will have the comfort and convenience of staying in your very own hotel room during your holiday. For those looking for some ‘me-time,’ our solo tours typically offer plenty of free time to go it alone. During your time at leisure, you have the freedom to do your own exploration, see the sights you want to see or simply relax and take it easy.
Meet like-minded people
It’s often the people you meet on holiday that are the highlight of the entire trip and you’ll have amazing memories of the shared experiences you had together. The beauty of a solo holiday is that you will be travelling with a group of other independent travellers.
You’ll never be alone
Group travel is ideal for solo travellers as it offers the opportunity to meet a group of like-minded people, each interested in exploring their chosen destination. Being part of a group provides extra security, and for everyone there is the benefit of an expert local guide who is keen to share their knowledge. Our guide will accompany you on the tours and can offer suggestions for what to see and do in your leisure time, to ensure you have an authentic and enjoyable experience.
Solo travellers are always welcome
Remember, solo travellers can always join one of our regular holidays where we always have a limited number of single rooms available. Our Solo Traveller Holidays are steadily growing at Travel Department and this trend is likely to continue.
With 25 years’ experience perfecting tours to 100 destinations worldwide, Travel Department’s escorted holidays typically include flights, accommodation, transfers and guided tours. They carefully plan your trip, so you experience the best holiday highlights accompanied by a friendly local guide. With Travel Department you see more!
