Tailored Travels

To further accommodate solo travellers Intrepid Travel has started to offer solo-only tours, where travellers can avoid a single supplement by sharing a room with a like-minded traveller.

“Intrepid started with just three departures in 2017, and now we have 12 solo trips spread across six destinations; Morocco, India, Peru, Mexico, Vietnam, and Indonesia,” said Intrepid Group CEO James Thornton.

Some of the popular tours include the 15-day Best of Morocco adventure priced from $1,232, where travellers get to travel from Casablanca to Marrakech; Mexico Unplugged from $1,270 — a two-week experience of Mexico’s Aztec, Zapotec, Mayan and Spanish cultures; and the 12-day Vietnam Real Food Adventure from $2,223 which allows travellers to indulge at the street food markets in Hanoi and spend time cooking some of the country’s local dishes.

Intrepid also revealed that after conducting a national survey, it found that 58% of women and 52% of men are jetting off in small group adventures with fellow singletons, not to meet someone new, but to connect with themselves.
