The idea of setting off on a new adventure by yourself can seem rather daunting, especially if it's your first time. If you are considering it, it's likely that you have a number of burning questions you'd like answered in order to feel more at ease before you venture off. With this in mind, we've put together a solo travel guide to provide all of the tips and information you need to get started on your life-changing adventure.
Of course, if you're completely new to travelling alone, it's best to start with the basics. What is solo travel? Well, by definition it is setting off on holiday by yourself, but that doesn't mean you have to do all of your exploring alone. You are likely to come across plenty of opportunities to meet new people; including locals and other tourists, and you could also opt to join a solo travel tour. For many this is seen as being the best of both worlds; the chance to enjoy the company of other people travelling alone, whilst still having the sense of independence that comes with setting off by yourself.
If you're wondering why you should travel alone, there are several very convincing reasons. Firstly, it gives you the opportunity to travel and enjoy new experiences, without relying on other people to commit to travelling with you. Maybe your friends and family don't have the travel bug like you do; why should you miss out on a potentially life changing adventure? Solo travel can give you the chance to step outside of your comfort zone, and a feeling of achievement for having done so. It's also often easier to interact with other people and even form deeper, more meaningful bonds with those you meet along the way.

Whether you're thinking of a short break close to home or jetting off to far-flung exotic locations for an extended period, you'll find plenty of tips and inspiration.
