If you are brave enough to venture out on your own, here are a few tips to keep in mind to make your adventure easier:

Look for discounts. It may seem like all the discounts are for couples or families, but they do exist for single travelers. You just need to be vigilant and strike when you see them.

Check for transportation deals. There are a lot of ways to travel - so look and see which is the most "single person" friendly.

Crowdsource your questions. Check online sites and ask other travelers what they recommend for single travelers. Don't be afraid to ask! Most people are happy to share their secrets.

Embrace being alone. When you sit at the bar in a foreign city or country, making friends can be easy.
