Traveling solo is becoming more and more popular, and it’s easier than ever to hit the road on your own and meet plenty of awesome people along the way. Whether you’re worried about traveling on your own for the first time and want to meet with somebody more experienced, or just want to get in touch with likeminded individuals in advance, there are plenty of great ways to meet new friends to share your travel adventures with. Here are some of the best ideas to try:

#1. Word of Mouth:

Put the word out in your circle and community that you are looking to travel solo and want to meet up with likeminded people along the way. Somebody that you know may be friends with somebody who’s also looking to travel solo and could introduce the two of you. Or, your plans might inspire somebody to take you up on the offer of being a travel buddy; whether it’s somebody that you’re already close with or an acquaintance who you can get to know better during your travel experience. 

#2. Use Social Media

The internet is undoubtedly one of the best places to meet new people these days, and it certainly doesn’t disappoint when it comes to meeting up with potential travel buddies. You can join an online social network such as Emenator. On this platform, you’ll find plenty of different hobby and interest groups where you’re sure to get chatting to somebody who would make a great travel buddy. You could join a specific travel group or gathering, or one that’s based around another hobby or interest to find people you have something in common with. 

 This is a great place to start if you’re looking for travel tips and advice and, of course, travel buddies. You can even find specific events aimed at solo travelers, to give people a chance to meet up and connect with one another before making any travel plans. 

#3. Apps and Websites:

Last but not least, there are a number of apps and websites that you can use to meet up with like-minded travel buddies. If you do look into the abovementioned social network Emenator, you will see that there is an app available that you can download so you have access to it on the go. Another useful app can be seen through MeetUp which can be used for meeting new people – and it’s not just aimed at travel so you could use it to find events and groups in your area for all kinds of hobbies and interests. Other popular sites include Intrepid Travel and G Adventures, where you can book onto an organized group travel experience that takes the stress out of doing it all by yourself, which is perfect for first-time solo travelers looking to test the waters.
