Solo travel is a growing trend. Each year, more and more clients come to us seeking a luxury holiday free from the compromises that travelling with friends or family often brings. Imagine: no need to compare bucket lists, co-ordinate time off or miss out on your favourite attractions. This is travel that’s all about you.

We know going it alone can be a daunting prospect, whether you’re a first-time backpacker or an experienced traveller. That’s why A&K will support you every step of the way, from planning to booking; from arrival to departure. You can choose an itinerary exquisitely tailored to you, or join one of our luxury escorted tours – the perfect balance of company and privacy.

Travel solo, the A&K way.

"I was particularly grateful for the solo game drive arranged on my second morning, when my guide Lucas excelled himself.”

Mr Callow, A&K client

Stay safe and connected

If you’re heading half way across the globe on your own, you want to do it with a company you can count on. A&K has been helping solo travellers explore for more than 55 years, and each of our 2,500 travel specialists is as passionate about seeing the world as you are. We’ve visited every country under the sun and built up an encyclopaedic knowledge of the hot spots and hidden gems. Beyond our own expertise, we only work with the most knowledgeable, qualified and charming guides. 

Unlike most travel companies who depend on third parties abroad, A&K has 55 offices across 30 countries – all staffed by our specialists on the ground. That means wherever you’re travelling solo with us, our team is never too far away. You can also book with total confidence; we are ABTA-approved, and our escorted tours include a guarantee of departure for a minimum of two clients.

Sidestep single supplements

We want to give solo travellers every incentive to choose A&K. That’s why our Immersive Journeys guarantee no single supplement for the first four solo places booked. It’s the same escorted tour, with the same level of luxury, at the same price per person.

You’ll also discover regular offers on single supplements across our other escorted tours and tailor-made holidays. That’s one more reason to make this the year you go solo.

Meet new people

Travelling solo needn’t mean travelling alone. Our escorted tours place you within a group of up to 18 fellow globe trotters as you discover the best of a destination. Because we’re an international brand, our tours attract travellers from every background, so you never know who your new best friend might be. Best of all, you’re never short of people to take your photo.

On our tailor-made solo holidays, you’ll also have the opportunity to meet fascinating individuals and quiz experts in their field. Plant trees with the Maasai, sip sake with a geisha, ride saddle-by-saddle with a gaucho and much more. Our diverse range of experiences will put you in touch with locals and give you a unique insight into the culture of your destination. Throughout your journey, you’ll be in the very best of company.

Travel at your tempo

One of the benefits of travelling solo is you dictate the pace. Your tailor-made itinerary can be as action-packed or relaxed as you like, and we’ll plan every detail of your escape to make it seamless. You’ll never be rushing for transfers or stuck in endless queues, and you’ll benefit from the VIP access we offer all our clients.

If you choose one of our Immersive Journeys – a unique range of A&K escorted tours – you’re guaranteed a more leisurely tempo. You’ll enjoy the sights, sounds and flavours of a destination, without ever feeling rushed. There’s time to mingle and make friends, such as at our lively welcome dinners, but also plenty of time to yourself for a little R&R. There are even opportunities to Design your Day®; choose from a range of activities, or spend the day unwinding however you wish.
