For some people, travelling solo can be nerve-wracking, intimidating, and can put a dampener on your travels. However, this shouldn’t be the case. For an experience that you want to wholeheartedly enjoy, there are a few reasons why a coach tour or river cruise is a great holiday option for you!  

Make new friends  


Even if you consider yourself an introvert, we guarantee that your confidence will grow on one of our trips. You’ll have the chance to meet people from all over the world who have their own stories to share. Many of our past travellers have made lifelong friends from their trip and easily keep in touch via email or message apps.

By travelling with a group, safety in numbers means you automatically feel more secure when exploring a foreign country. 

It’s hassle-free 

Decision making and planning can get exhausting when travelling solo. When you travel with Avalon Waterways or Globus, each day is perfectly planned for you, so your trip is hassle-free, easy and fun!

While each day is planned on a river cruise or coach tour, you’ll still be able to have time to explore on your own if you wish! You might want to revisit that shop you saw or treat yourself to a coffee in a piazza while people-watching. 

Local knowledge from your Tour or Cruise Director

A Globus coach tour or an Avalon river cruise is a great option for you to tick another destination (or three!) off your bucket list. Both have a wide range of holidays across the world for you to choose from.  

Solo traveller deals 

Avalon and Globus offer the chance for you to waive the single supplement, helping you get more bang for your buck.  

Avalon has a deal where the single supplement is waived on select river cruises in Europe and Southeast Asia (find out more here); while you might be lucky enough to snag a deal with Globus on one of their Escapes tours for a solo traveller.  

Travelling solo shouldn’t deter you from having the opportunity to travel the world! That’s why a coach tour or river cruise is a great option when planning your next holiday.
