The entire crew was outstanding and as a single traveler I knew right away I was in good hands. From the start of my journey to the end, it was by far one of the best vacations I have ever been on.

Travel Freely With the Leader in Solo Travel!

With our free and low-cost Single Supplements and exclusively-designed solo cabins, we offer an independent travel experience you can’t afford to miss!

Whether cruising along the Seine like Tracey Nesbitt of Solo Traveler World recently did; searching for wildlife on an African safari; or cruising the Nile aboard the new, custom-built m/s Nebu; you’ll enjoy inspiring, authentic experiences with expert guides while boosting your confidence on a journey that lets you prioritize one thing — you.

Join us and attend fun Solo Connection mixers — relaxed gatherings hosted by your Adventure Leader or Cruise Director where you can meet and mingle with your fellow solo travelers — and enjoy other solo-friendly activities including pub crawls, seating with your group at dinner and on motorcoach rides, home-hosted meals with locals, cooking demonstrations, dancing lessons, paint nights, on board performances, and more.

Always Innovative. Uniquely Vantage.

Landmark Solo Accommodations

We made it a priority to ensure that our new 5-star ocean fleet was outfitted with a landmark 15 solo cabins, many with private verandas — a Vantage exclusive. We’ve also added even more custom-built solo cabins to our award-winning river fleet, including Solo Suites aboard our 5-star m/s Nebu in Egypt.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the most frequently asked questions about our Solo Travel Program.

What kind of Single Supplement will I have to pay?

It may well be that you pay no single supplement at all, if you take advantage of the one FREE Single Supplement space we offer on just about every departure of every Vantage trip. Plus, Vantage is the only company in the travel industry whose river ships (and most of our small ocean-going ships) have single occupancy cabins where there is no supplement at all. For either of these options early reservations are a must because space is limited. But you may still be able to save…. You can request that we find you a same-sex roommate with our Roommate Matching plan, which eliminates the single supplement if we find you a roommate. Otherwise, we have the lowest single supplements around (we’ve recently reduced our rates), starting at just $1,499. 

Can you match me with a roommate?

Yes we can! Sign up for our FREE Roommate Matching Service, and we will find you a same-sex roommate so you both pay only the double occupancy rate. You’ll pay half the single supplement up front, and when we find you a match your money will be refunded. If we fail to find you a roommate, you travel as a single but only pay 50% of the usual single supplement.

How do you help solo travelers prepare for their trips?

After you reserve you’ll receive detailed information about your upcoming trip—a complete day-to-day itinerary, hotel descriptions, packing tips, suggested reading and movies, and much more. Your Tour Director, Cruise Director or Adventure will email you in advance of your departure to introduce him- or herself and ask if you have any questions or special requests.

What kind of support do you provide for solos during their journeys?

Every Vantage journey is led by an experienced Tour Director, Cruise Director, or Adventure Leader. He or she will make sure the journey goes smoothly for everyone. But they always keep a special eye out for our solo travelers, so that you always feel welcome, comfortable, and engaged. Do you need directions to a special shop? Looking for someone to share a taxi? Want some help translating the menu? Your leader will be right there to assist. If you have a special hobby or interest, let them know about it and they will do their best to connect you with others in the group who might share your interest.

Not sure about traveling by yourself? Just go — Vantage takes care of everything and the other people on the tours are great!
