Calling Lisa Loner and Norman No Mates… Forget the clichés and go solo with Exodus – over 100 tours for adventurous, single travellers
Calling all bachelors and bachelorettes… there’s no need to squander your hard earned rest by holidaying with mum, dad and Grandpa Joe – with over one hundred tours ideal for the solo traveller to choose from, why not try a trip with Exodus this Autumn?
Forget the clichés and the Shirley Valentine comparisons; there has never been a better time to go it alone. Exodus offers a range of exciting trips for solo travellers where you can escape in the knowledge that everyone else will be travelling on their own too. Exodus Solo Departures include life-defining experiences such as trekking the Inca Trail, exploring the Amazon Rainforest, wildlife safaris in Kenya, or reaching new heights on Kilimanjaro. Or, for those who enjoy life’s little luxuries, why not try wine tasting in Tuscany, or cycling the Dalmatian Coast? With an Exodus Solo Departure, you’ll have a taste of adventure, broaden your horizons and make new friends, but with the security that a group tour offers, and an experienced guide.
One third of us are single and according to a recent survey by Mintel, five million Brits will be travelling solo this year. And by 2031, almost half of us will be holidaying alone. But a solo trip is not just for singletons – you may just be keen to leave your ‘excess baggage’ behind. If you have a burning ambition to trek to Everest Base Camp, whilst your partner prefers to lounge at ground-level on a beach in Mozambique then Exodus has a holiday to suit both your (selfish) needs. Plus, with a Solo Departure with Exodus, there is no need to worry that you’ll spend your trip alone, from the moment you arrive at your destination, you’ll be with a group of like-minded people who share your passion for travel.
Following huge demand, Exodus this year pioneered a range of Exodus Solo Departures on their wide range of adventure and activity holidays. At present, more than one third of Exodus’ winter tours are designed for those travelling on their own and Exodus has plans to increase the number of trips which are ideal for solo travellers to 20 per cent in 2010. With almost half their clients travelling on their own, Exodus has introduced about 70 trips with solo departures for 2010.
Why not try the new Pertisau Beginners Course, a cross-country skiing trip in the Austrian Tirol across dramatic limestone mountains, ideal for those who want to learn how to cross country ski in a relaxed and fun environment. With eight days priced from £929 and a range of departures from January 2010, now is the time to plan your escape.
Or if you like it hot, why not consider Exodus’ Petra and Wadi Rum cycling trip through spectacular desert, tranquil olive groves and Bedouin villages. A highlight of the trip is the evening spent at Wadi Rum, the former headquarters of Lawrence of Arabia, who single-handedly changed history. This trip is priced from £1,239 with departures from September 2009.
Pete Burrell, Managing Director Exodus commented ‘Your annual leave is too precious to waste, so why waste time on a holiday which doesn’t tick every box?
There’s no stigma in being a solo traveller these days – you can have the best of both worlds. Get away with like-minded individuals with an experienced leader and enjoy the safety of a group with all the adventure of an Exodus holiday. Be an individual and come along on an Exodus solo adventure.’
