Travel search engine Kayak has launched its Travel Hacker guide, detailing the top 10 destinations to travel solo, wallet-friendly trips and the best under-the-radar locations for adventurous explorers to visit.
As solo travelling continues to boom around the globe, 52% of the UK holidaymakers declare they have been on a lone trip before, with 22% preferring to go away solo than in a big group. The travel search engine reveals that Barcelona tops the list for the best destination to visit on your own.
The historic city boasts beautiful beaches, great food and is an ideal sporting hub for football fans, so there’s something for everyone. Not forgetting the amazing art installations and exhibitions, including over 20 Gaudi attractions for travellers to explore with Casa Milla’s iconic chimneys being a must-see.
European locations make up the majority of the top 10 list, featuring Rome, Budapest and Lisbon, due to their easy accessibility from the UK, rich history and scenic surroundings. If lone wolves are looking for something a little more relaxed, Budapest and Kuta are the ultimate hotspots. New research unveils what Brits like best about going away on their own, with not having to compromise on what they want to do topping the list (51%), followed by helping them becoming more independent (48%) and it boosting their confidence (40%).
Evan Day, country manager in UK of Kayak said: “The trend of going on trips or travelling alone seems to be getting more and more popular, so we hope our Travel Hacker Guide provides people with useful information they might need to plan their trip, as well as sharing tips and tricks for whilst they are away.”
