At Explore, we take your safety and wellbeing seriously and all of our group adventure holidays are designed to give you maximum enjoyment as well as peace of mind.
However, while we do follow an itinerary you'll have some free time during your trip, which you're able to enjoy how you please - but when travelling solo, we recommend that you don't travel too far from the group, let someone know where you're going, or better still, invite one of your new friends and fellow travellers to join you. Be vigilant when exploring a new place, especially in busy and unfamiliar areas.
Learning a little of the local language or packing a phrasebook will help you to get the most out of your holiday too, and locals always appreciate the effort!
It's also very important that when you have booked your solo travel adventure, you find out whether you need any vaccinations in plenty of time before you go. Your GP can help you to arrange any that you need - take a look at our Travel Health page for a few more tips on vaccinations, and generally staying healthy on your solo adventure trip, including how to avoid getting sick or sunstroke.
Be sure to also check whether there are any passport entry requirements for your destination, as some countries such as Africa require that your passport is valid for up to six months after your return date.
Last of all, don't forget that you have any questions at all about solo travel or our trips, our knowledgeable Customer Support team are always on hand to help.
