There is a visible increase in the trend of solo travel in the recent years. It is perhaps the result of the society becoming more individualistic that you want your travel experience to be a personal one and people are opting for singles vacation. Abercrombie & Kent is an established name in the travel industry and they have acknowledged this emerging trend and tailored their offerings and packages accordingly. Traditionally the pricing of a travel package favors couples and groups but almost have penal pricing for single travel. Abercrombie & Kent has taken initiative to change all that.
Bob Simpson, the company’s vice president of business development in the United States explained their new approach to solo travel by saying that the company wanted to present them with value. They have either entirely waived fees for solo travelers or reduced them in over 45 sectors in popular destinations including China, Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, Kenya. The $1,625 fee for an 11-day safari in Kenya, for example, is now waived, and the solo travel fee of $3,805 for a 13-day trip in Turkey is now $951. This move is definitely going to encourage the trend and we will see more single travel and singles vacation.
Abercrombie & Kent has a strong presence in all the seven continents. They have a whole range of offerings, right from the African Safari to cultural discovery programs and they now have special Solo Savings schemes on many of them. They respect the privacy of an individual and ensure that the solo travelers get a single accommodation every time, everywhere. With A&K a solo traveler gets the same care that is provided to the groups. The tour Director acts more as a friendly travel companion and with the agency’s wide network of offices you are assured of expert support wherever you are traveling in the world. The packages for single travel and singles vacation are bound to increase and become more attractive.
