"...There's a big difference between traveling on your own, and traveling as a single with a group...".

 

   That was my reaction to reading some of the links. Having said that, the links do provide useful info so I'm not dissing the whole posting.

   I travel to the U.K. every year, as a single, fully on my own. So, I'm not doing anthing with a group and book everything myself. That's 'true' solo travel (and, with no electronic devices: no phone, no tablet, no gps). Maps, compass, paper bus and rail schedules.   


Just think. The world was built by the lowest bidder.

There's a big difference between traveling on your own, and traveling as a single with a group. To what are you referring? My experience is that few organizations give any discounts to people who are by themselves, on a group tour. You wind up paying a very hefty "single supplement", and often wind up getting rooms that are too small for people traveling as a couple or with a friend.
