TTC Brands Target Solo Travellers

Recognizing the pent-up demand for solo travel, Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold, Costsaver and Brendan Vacations have announced their commitment to offering better value, making it easier than ever for solo traveller clients to return to travel and for travel agents to tap into new markets, ultimately selling more.

As pent-up travel demand continues to rise, 66% of people say they ‘don’t want to wait for others to see the world,’ with 42% stating they ‘want to meet new people’ when they travel. The solo trend was on the rise pre-pandemic with a 131% increase in Google searches between 2016 and 2019, and the solo travel trend has come back strong over the last few months.

With an already robust solo traveller offering, the brands are extending the solo value proposition to make it even more accessible than ever before to travel solo.

Gavin Tollman, president of The Travel Corporation, said: “The free and significantly reduced single supplement offer can be found across Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold and Costsaver on all of our tour series around the globe for 2022 and 2023.”

Tollman continued: “We are excited to be able to offer this to solo travellers so they can get back to doing what they love, seeing and experiencing the world, with the complete peace of mind they experience when travelling with our all-ages guided brands.”

He noted that: “Importantly we are happy to also be supporting our agent partners in bringing new offerings to market which will help them sell more,” he concluded.

Solo guests looking to share a room with a same sex traveller also remains a popular choice for clients and is available on most trips across Trafalgar, Insight Vacations and Costsaver.”
