Who's Going It Alone?
Going alone isn't limited to men; in fact, as demonstrated in the hit films "Eat, Pray, Love" and "Wild," a significant number of those voyaging on their own are older women, followed by younger female professionals, according to an AARP study. Among millennials, 25 percent expressed interest in a 2016 solo trip and nowadays, it's just as likely, if not more likely, for solo travelers to be married or in a committed relationship. What's more: AARP reported that 97 percent of 45+ year-old solo travelers are extremely satisfied with their experiences and 81 percent plan on taking another in the next year. And, among affluent travelers, solo travel has more than doubled from since 2013, showed a Visa study.
Unlike hotels, Homestay.com doesn't penalize solo travelers with single supplement fees. In fact, with a global average rate of $46 per night and rooms available for as little as $8, Homestays are wallet-friendly lodging options for vacationers.
Considering the host is always present throughout the guest's stay with a Homestay, solo travelers can explore independently by day, yet find comfort in having a home base away from home. A host acts as a travel guide to dispense non-touristy tips, a personal translator, a confidant and more, which creates a more authentic experience.
Homestay.com is an accommodation marketplace dedicated to the homestay travel experience, where the host, a local resident, is present for every stay. Focused as much on people as it is on places, Homestay.com puts hosts at the heart of amazing travel experiences.
