MORE OF US WILL TRAVEL ALONE

The Daily Telegraph - Travel - - FRONT PAGE -

At least we will if the trend re­vealed by Abta’s an­nual travel sur­vey con­tin­ues. It shows that al­most one in six peo­ple (15 per cent) now goes on hol­i­day by them­selves – up from 12 per cent in 2017 and al­most three times as many as in 2011 (six per cent). This in­crease ap­par­ently stems from a grow­ing de­sire for in­di­vid­ual in­de­pen­dence rather than a lack of al­ter­na­tives – three quar­ters of solo tourists said trav­el­ling alone gave them more free­dom to do what they wanted. The sen­ti­ment was par­tic­u­larly preva­lent among 35 to 44 year-olds.
