ore and more travelers are traveling solo – and they’re not who you might expect them to be.越來越多人一個人旅行,而且他們不是你料想中會單獨旅遊的人。


Some 24 percent of people traveled alone on their most recent overseas leisure vacation, up from 15 percent in 2013, according to the 2015 Visa Global Travel Intentions Study, which was conducted across 25 countries.


Among first-time travelers, solo travel is even more popular, jumping to 37 percent, up from 16 percent in 2013.


And while the stereotypical solo traveler has traditionally been single and looking, a solo traveler these days is just as likely, if not more likely, to be married or in a committed relationship.

There are those who travel by themselves because their partner’s job prevents them from taking simultaneous getaways. Some have a yen for a particular activity, like golf, that isn’t shared by their partner. Others are caregivers for a disabled spouse or partner and take the occasional solo trip when a family member is able to help out at home.


“Many people seem to think that solo travelers are single people, with many or most looking for love,” said Priscilla O’Reilly of Overseas Adventure Travel. “That’s not the case with our travelers.”


Plenty of people who book with the company – where more than 40 percent of travelers are solo, up from 35 percent in 2013 and 27 percent in 2007 – do so without their spouse or partner. Most of them are women, Ms. O’Reilly added, “and, some of them admit that after having taken care of spouses and kids for so many years, it’s nice to have an experience on one’s own.”


The climate for solo travel is improving. Some fees are being dropped, and more packages are being marketed to people who plan to vacation on their own.


Cruise companies are not only adding more cabins, some are also doing away with single supplements (surcharges that can be anywhere from 10 to 100 percent or more of the standard rate). Tom Harper River Journeys, a river cruise company near Boston, said that in 2016 it would introduce a ship with supplement-free staterooms and French balconies for solo travelers. The Majestic Line, a small-ship cruising company based in Britain, announced that next year two of the seven en-suite cabins on a new ship will be for solo travelers and won’t have single supplements. And Holland America, based in Seattle, plans to add 12 new ocean-view cabins for solo travelers next year on its forthcoming ship, the MS Koningsdam.


Zegrahm Expeditions eliminated the single supplement on three of its 2015 trips: a circumnavigation of the Black Sea; a visit to India, Sri Lanka and the Maldives; and a circumnavigation of South Georgia Island.


Online travel agents and sites like Orbitz and TripAdvisor now include search filters for singles and solo travel.


Hotels have yet to make many strides, though a few, including the Westin New York Grand Central, have gotten creative. In July the hotel offered what was seemingly the first getaway package from a major American hotel brand directed at solo female travelers. It included a consultation about healthful eating and discounted yoga classes.


The hotel’s website, however, described it as “a memorable experience for guests traveling with friends or recharging on their own.”


Cath Cole, 42, who runs a fund-raising consultancy in Britain, has been on several trips with Solos Vacations to places as varied as Turkey and Northampton, England.


“I often get holiday time at late notice and many of my friends can’t be flexible, so whether I’m in a relationship or not, I still consider Solos,” she said. “It’s not the dating scene everyone who hasn’t been thinks it is. Sure, some people get together, but that’s not what it’s about. It’s about independent travelers, not dating holidays.”
