Over the last 10 years, there has been an uptick in the number of companies offering tours, vacation packages, and cruises for solo travelers. They have identified the solo travel market as important to their business. Created in 2017 by Solo Traveler, the world's leading solo travel website, the purpose of the Solo Travel Awards is twofold:
- to recognize companies that serve solo travelers well
- to encourage more companies to tailor products and services to the burgeoning solo travel market.
The single supplement is the bane of solo travelers who want a great travel experience without paying up to 100% more than they would if they were traveling with someone else. The Solo Travel Awards have been established with simple, clear criteria to bring focus to what's important to solo travelers.
Standard criteria has been developed for each category, putting all entrants on an equal playing field. From the submissions, a short list of those that best meet the criteria will be created and presented to our esteemed panel of judges. The awards will be given on purely objective measures. However, should there be significant variances for the better or worse in terms of issues such as responsible tourism or consumer treatment, the judges may take these into consideration in their determination of the final winner.
All companies that enter the Awards will be entered for the World Nomads Solo Travelers Choice Award according to the Terms and Conditions. Voting for this award will open on May 16th, 2018.
Winners will be recognized on the Solo Traveler website, on social media, and through a public relations campaign. They will also be given a badge to display in their promotional materials positioning them as leaders in the solo travel market.
We look forward to receiving your entry for the Solo Travel Awards.
