We at VACAYA believe life begins at the edge of your comfort zone. That’s why we encourage all single travelers to throw caution to the four winds and travel with us. We fully recognize that traveling alone can oftentimes be a scary prospect, but remember… at VACAYA you’re never alone for long (unless you want to be, of course). And here are a few tips to help you get on your way!
VACAYA’s “Solo Traveling with Ease Program” (or STEP) will pair you with another solo traveler to share a room, ensuring your costs are kept to a minimum. However, before you join STEP, there are a few things you can do on your own first.
The online VACAYA community is incredibly welcoming. Each of our vacations has an official Facebook Event Page. This is a great resource for finding other solo travelers who are also looking for a roommate. In our experience, the most successful pairings are those initiated by the people actually looking. Simply post on our event page that you’re seeking a roommate and let others come directly to you. This method gives you the opportunity to interview prospective roommates beforehand, allowing you to make a strong pre-cruise bond. Assuming you find a match on your own, you can both simply book a room together as any friends would.
If you don’t find a suitable roommate on your own, that’s where we can help. Please keep in mind, though, that VACAYA reserves the right to deny participation in our Solo Traveling with Ease Program if any conditions surrounding your participation would infringe on the enjoyment of your assigned roommate’s experience in any way (as a basic example, if you require a CPAP Machine).
