TRAVEL FREELY WITH THE LEADER IN SOLO TRAVEL!




Why travel solo with Vantage:

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!


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.


Whether cruising the Nile aboard the new, custom-built m/s Nebu or searching for wildlife on an African safari, you’ll enjoy inspiring, authentic experiences with expert guides while boosting your confidence on a journey that lets you prioritize
one thing — you.





Coming soon: Solo cabins with French balconies

You asked, we listened. In 2020, we’re debuting additional solo cabins with French balconies and floor-to-ceiling windows onboard most of our deluxe European fleet! That means you’ll have a choice in which solo accommodation is right for you — and we’ll never charge a supplement in these specially-outfitted solo cabins! Plus in 2020, enjoy suites just for solos aboard our 5-star custom-built m/s Nebu in Egypt!

Free or low-cost Single Supplements

Going by land? We offer limited free Single Supplement on every land adventure, too! No more single cabins remaining? You can save up to $4,000 on Single Supplements in select-double occupancy cabins during designated departures. But if you’re seeking an alternative to single cabins and supplements, we’ll match you with a same-gender roommate and you’ll pay the lower double-occupancy rate!


Solo-only adventures

We’re offering 16 solo-only departures on eight of our favorite adventures in 2020! From an African safari to Mongolia’s singing sands, you’ll explore in a small group of 16 likeminded travelers or less. What’s more, you’ll also likely make some friends who share your zest for life … and thirst for adventure.


Solo-friendly cruises

Now you can travel solo and save even more money with new solo-friendly river cruise and small ship departure dates! Whether cruising the Aegean or Portugal’s River of Gold, you’ll discover Europe’s most stunning destinations while enjoying deluxe accommodations at a fraction of the regular cost!

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!

Jane Farley , 1st-time traveler

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.
