If you’re planning to travel solo — or, perhaps more to the point, worried about traveling solo — the infographic below from Solos, A UK-based travel company that specializes in singles tours of Europe, may help ease your mind.

Solos has been in business for more than 30 years, running escorted tours to the UK, Ireland, France, and Italy, and has been voted the Best Singles Holiday Tour Operator in the UK for the past four years. An experienced tour leader accompanies all tours and you’re guaranteed your own room, a big plus when compared to many other tours.

You can also choose tours designed for folks in the 50s-plus age range.

Solos is happy to work with American travelers, and has a special website directed to them, with prices listed in U.S. dollars. You can also go to their main website here.

They don’t book transatlantic flights for Americans, but will assist with setting up additional hotel nights, flights within Europe, or car rental if you want to extend your trip.

Going with a group can add a welcome social equation to your trip, but Solos tour leaders are also mindful of the desire to spend some time on your own if you wish. As Solos puts it, “A solo holiday is the epitome of adventure,” and, having traveled solo myself many times, I can attest that it can be a particularly memorable — if sometimes challenging — experience.

I’ve also written about solo travel specifically for women here and here.

One thing I like about this infographic is that it doesn’t push traveling with Solos or even traveling on an escorted tour. It does list booking a group tour as one option, but is mainly focused on traveling on your own. (Thanks to the folks at NeoMam Studios for the high-quality graphics.)

So check out the infographic and decide if traveling solo is right for you:

According to government and private surveys:

  • Leading-edge baby boomers (born between 1946 and 1955) and seniors account for four out of every five dollars spent on luxury travel today.
  • Roughly half the consumer spending money in the U.S.--more than $2 trillion--is in the hands of leading-edge baby boomers and seniors.
  • Baby boomers (born 1946-1964) travel more than any other age group.
  • When asked what they would most like to spend their money on, baby boomers answered “travel” more than any other category, including improving their health or finances.
