Solo travel requests and searches are seeing an uptick in demand. Due to the increased demand, TTC Tour Brands, the sales, marketing and operations division serving the tour brands of The Travel Corporation (TTC), is making it easier and more affordable for solo travelers to experience the world through their brands including Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Luxury Gold, Costsaver and Brendan Vacations
“We are seeing reality meet the research, and are ensuring that our travel advisor partners are prepared to meet the opportunity to court and delight the growing number of solo travelers with waived and reduced single supplements,” said Guy Young, chief trade engagement officer, North America for TTC Tour Brands, in a press statement.
According to a recent reader survey conducted by the experts at Solo Traveler, as pent-up travel demand continues to rise, 66 percent of people say they “don’t want to wait for others to see the world” and 42 percent stating they “want to meet new people” when they travel. Google searches also confirm the trend with a 131 percent increase in Google searches for solo travel between 2016 and 2019, and the solo travel trend has come back strong over the last few months.
“As travel returns, we want to help our travel advisor partners capitalize on the growing market for solo travelers. Offering free and significantly reduced single supplement fees will broaden the opportunity to welcome solo travelers on our brands and experience the world with complete peace of mind,” said Young.
Solo travelers heading to any of the seven continents with any of the TTC Tour Brands will enjoy significantly reduced single supplement fees or free single room upgrade on select tours. Several of the brands also offer Solo Room Share Matching, a service that allows travelers to choose to be matched with a same sex travel partner for a room share at no cost.
