Travel on Your Own Terms: Tips for Solo Travel

Traveling solo can be an empowering and rewarding experience full of self-discovery! Take the leap of faith and seize your sunshine.

1. Plan ahead and be prepared.

One of the best things about traveling solo is that everything is up to you and the possibilities are endless! While the thought of planning a trip on your own can be daunting, the unique experience will be well worth it. Not sure where to start? We’ve got resources! Learn how to plan your vacation with peace of mind. Don’t forget to add travel insurance to keep you covered and worry-free throughout your adventure! Plus, save money and time with our top travel hacks.

2. Revel in the solitude.

You may be thinking “I’ve spent enough time alone this year,” but solo travel is a way more than self-isolation. It’s an opportunity for personal growth! Immerse in a new culture all on your own and take some time to learn about (and treat) yourself! Soothe your soul with a spa treatment, sunbathe by the pool with a great playlist (provided below) and indulge in your favorite dishes catered to your desires. ‘Me time’ is essential for your mental health and where better to spend that time than in paradise? Experience a newfound sense of freedom by prioritizing yourself.

3. Live in the moment.

Take time to reflect on the past year and recharge, but don’t forget to celebrate the moment, enjoy your surroundings, and form new connections. Solo travel offers the opportunity to meet some great people along the way. Forming bonds with new ‘vacation friends’ will make your trip even more special and memorable. Whether you’re mingling at the swim up bar with a cold piña colada in hand or taking an excursion to a local historic landmark, be open to each new experience and live your best life.

4. Capture the memories.

After staying home and sharing one too many photos of your cat, the time has come to add some fresh, tropical content to your camera roll! Share a photo of your amazing accommodations or a shot of the glistening sea—your friends and family will get to live vicariously through your adventure. Or find solace in keeping the evidence of your unforgettable experience all to yourself and scrapbook later. Regardless, the memories will last a lifetime.

5. Make it All-Inclusive.

Choosing the right destination for your first solo journey (especially post-COVID) can be overwhelming.
