We are thrilled to announce the launch of the third annual Solo Travel Awards.
Last year we honored six companies as winners in specific categories and, thanks to your votes, honored Adventure Canada with the Solo Travelers Choice Award.
The purpose of the 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.
Nominations Are Now Open for the Solo Travel Awards
Between May 1, 2019 and July 31, 2019, travel companies are invited to nominate themselves for the Solo Travel Awards. From August 15 to September 15 you'll have your chance to vote for your preferred company in the Solo Travelers Choice Award.

The Mission of Solo Traveler
A few years back we sat down to clarify our mission at Solo Traveler. Our conclusion was that we are here to inform, inspire, and advocate on behalf of solo travelers.
We do the first two by publishing three days a week on Solo Traveler and facilitating a conversation amongst solo travelers daily on the Solo Travel Society on Facebook. Advocating on behalf of solo travelers is a year-round occupation as well, as we research companies that treat solo travelers well, update the Deals page regularly, and send these deals out to our subscribers each month.
The Solo Travel Awards is the cherry on top of the advocacy piece. It has attracted the attention of the media which, in turn, brings more companies' attention to the solo travel market.
Our thanks to all who participate in the Awards program and to our readers and travelers for your ongoing support.
