Leader in Solo Friendly Travel: Guaranteed
Leader in Solo Friendly Travel: Guaranteed
Who can you expect to meet on your adventure? Independently minded women and men … solo travelers, couples, and groups of friends … both seasoned and first-time travelers—just about everyone. And what they all have in common with one another—and with you—is the spirit of learning and discovery that’s at the heart of every O.A.T. trip. Rather than just waving at local residents through a bus window, our travelers want to meet the people and enjoy the culture of their destinations. Thanks to the natural camaraderie that often forms during our Small Ship Adventures, our travelers also forge special bonds with one another as they share experiences both onboard and on land. And beyond a wealth of new friends and discoveries, we provide our solo travelers with the industry’s best ways to save.
Our guarantee to you
Compare our value for solo travelers with other travel companies, and you’ll find that you save $500-$5000 per person on our Small Ship Adventures. In fact, we guarantee that you cannot find a lower price for a solo traveler on any comparable international trip for Americans—if you do, we’ll not only match that price, but we’ll also deduct $500 off the cost of your vacation. This offer applies to new reservations for single occupancy only. Learn more about our Lowest Price Guarantee »
The lowest Single Supplements in the industry
On top of our FREE Roommate Matching Program and our Travel Companions online community, we offer solo travelers the lowest Single Supplements in the travel industry. With FREE or reduced Single Supplements on all Small Ship Adventures, and FREE Single Supplements on all pre- and post-trip extensions, you’ll find that our value is truly unparalleled.
Our crew will help you break the ice
From our Trip Experience Leaders to our friendly hospitality staff, everyone who works aboard our ships is looking out for you— especially if you’re a solo traveler. Our Trip Experience Leaders are natural leaders who make sure you feel part of the group. Do you play cards or Scrabble? Love music? Going to museums? Let them know what your interests are, as they may know just which fellow traveler to connect you with. Beyond making introductions, your Trip Experience Leader will organize group activities, and share tips on things to do and see on your own. Just knowing that they are there will help you feel included, relaxed, and open to new experiences.
Feel safe and secure—on and off the ship
Knowing that you’re in the best of hands and well taken care of makes for a relaxing and enjoyable trip. To ensure your peace of mind throughout your trip, we take the following precautions:
- We reserve safe docking space that is often centrally located
- Embarkation is monitored 24 hours a day by security
- Ship staff is always available to advise you about where to go and how to get there
- Local maps are provided at each port-of-call, clearly labeled with the dock location
Meet congenial, like-minded friends
We are known for the spirited camaraderie of our trips—a quality that singles and couples alike often cite as a highlight of their experience. Bonds form easily when you are sharing discoveries with peers. Many of our single travelers tell us they especially enjoy the size of our groups (no more than 25 travelers) because it allows them to meet lots of new people. In fact, many of our travelers have made lifelong friendships, found future travel partners—even met their future spouses—on our trips.

Looking for a roommate? Let us find you a match
Many of our solo travelers add to the value of their vacation by choosing to share accommodations with another traveler. And because space for solo travelers is limited on each departure, we offer a FREE Roommate Matching Program. When you take advantage of this special benefit, we’ll help you find a same-gender roommate. If we’re unable to find you a match, we’ll give you a single room at no additional cost.
