Though we've been asked many times, we have always stayed away from helping people find travel partners. This has been an issue since I started Solo Traveler 10 years ago. I've had time to think about it — over and over again.
And while I think that some services are fine, others make me anxious. Let's be clear, I have met and traveled with people many times. I have found travel buddies. It can enhance the travel experience as you discover a new destination through your own cultural lens and that of your new travel companion as well. But there are safe ways to do this and ways that I feel are less safe. What are they? Read on. While in recent years we have received fewer requests for help finding travel partners, they are still coming in.
Back in there was a lively discussion on matching services for solo travelers on the Solo Travel Society on Facebook. There were three main perspectives.
Perspectives two and three hold merit and, fortunately, there are safe ways of meeting these needs. There are a of apps and sites online that will help you find a travel partner. I have concerns about them for the following reasons. Because I won't promote these sites that help you find a travel partner I'm not giving you a list. However, if you are still interested, Google is your friend.
If you do so, I hope you'll be cautious and read the Solo Travel Safety section of the site before leaving. Despite my concerns about travel apps and sites for finding a travel companion, I do believe that there are safe ways to meet people for a day, a week, or more.
These methods give you the freedom of being solo and yet connect you with interesting people along the way.
Before jumping into the ways that you can meet travel companions, here are a few safety essentials:. Publisher Janice: info solotravelerworld. Editor Tracey: tracey solotravelerworld.
