Solo seniors get an adventurous travel opportunity

Over 50s are being invited to travel and meet some new friends.

Individual Traveller has announced an exclusive Sri Lanka Solo Tour for men and women 55+ inviting participants to ‘"travel where you’ve never been with friends you’ve never met!".

The fully-escorted 12-night/13-day tour for 50s and over will showcase Sri Lanka and visit Colombo, Sigiriya, Kandy and Galle from September 9-21.

As with all Individual Traveller-operated itineraries, the Sri Lankan tour will focus on providing solo travellers with the opportunity to share their holiday experience with like-minded people in a safe and welcoming environment.

Individual Traveller was created for people who travel on their own for whatever reason.

This particular tour costs $9799 per person including 12 nights in a double room for single use in 4-star quality hotels, breakfast daily, three dinners, English-speaking guides throughout, transfers, all entrance fees, an open hotel bar each night from 5.30-6.30pm each evening to mingle with other travellers, porterage and 24-hour assistance.

I particularly commend the porterage (older folk often have back issues and don't want to be lugging heavy suitcases around), and the news that guests will be in their hotel by 5.30pm each night.

Too many tours of this style aim to pack too much in, leaving guests tired and irritable when they should be relaxing.

SriLankan Airlines is currently offering return airfares from Melbourne to Sri Lanka from $982 in economy class and $3580 in business class (including taxes).

Individual Traveller managing director and creator Liz Young has welcomed Sri Lanka to the product range, saying: “We’ve had a lot of interest from our clients about Sri Lanka and we’re very proud of this particular tour.

“Not only will people get to see the magic of this wonderful country in style but they’ll be able to share their experience with others. The response we’ve had to our other solo tours has been enormous and Sri Lanka is just as popular,” Young said.
