It’s always fun to go on a vacation. A free period where you can relax and do whatever you want. However, it’s not always easy to find someone who wants to go with you. Whether it is due to cost or timing, sometimes people just can’t go. Well, that’s what I did one year; I went on a vacation by myself! You might already be doing this as well, but have you ever thought about how you might find people with similar interests to join you? Here are three places where you can find people who want to go on a vacation with you. Summer is quickly approaching, and you know what that means: time to go on vacation! But, what if you can’t find anyone to go on vacation with? Try out Co-venturer. This exciting new platform has tons of people looking for someone to vacation with. So stop worrying about trying to find a traveling companion, and start planning your next trip!
Most people are too preoccupied with their jobs, family and friends to take the time to plan a vacation. Or, worse yet they really want to go on vacation but can’t afford it. VacationtoGo is a new site that helps connect people with similar interests so they can go on vacations together! Maybe you’re a softball player who wants to find some people for a weekend trip to Cooperstown. Perhaps you love reptiles and want to go to Australia and see the native wildlife. Whatever the case may be, Vacation to Go will help you find others that have similar interests so you can share the thrill of traveling . . . together!
Find People To Go On Vacation With
Going on vacation is meant to be an enjoyable experience, but if you don’t have anyone to travel with, it can ruin your trip. What are your options then? Find other people that would like to travel in the same destination at the same time of year and go together – only a few clicks away! This is a website for students who want to find friends or others who want to meet new people and go on vacation with them. Why not go on vacation with others instead of going by yourself ?
While traveling solo has its benefits, it’s nice to have someone with whom to explore a new place. The following apps and platforms help you find the perfect travel buddy — just make sure to ask these 20 important questions before hitting the road, or risk being struck with an awful travel companion.
1. Penroads. Penroads is a free service that connects travelers before they hit the road. Once you sign up, you’ll create a profile, including details about your trip for other travelers to browse. The platform allows you to search by destination, helping you to quickly narrow down pertinent matches.
2. Reddit. There’s a good chance you already use Reddit to find interesting stories; however, Reddit’s Travel Partners message board allows travelers to post trips and ask others to join. If you’re traveling alone, the SoloTravel subreddit is a good place to find potential travel partners and seek advice.
3. HereToMeet.com. Just launched in March, HereToMeet.com is a social networking site for travelers. After inputting your travel destination, dates and interests, the platform matches like-minded travelers with similar itineraries, also providing event ideas via EventBrite. Before meeting in person, users can exchange messages and media and live chat through website. Because the website is so new, you may not find a ton of users yet, however, it’s worth keeping an eye on, especially with an app set to launch at the end of summer.
4. HelloTel App. The HelloTel app (iOS & Android, free) is a social network with over 150,000 users connecting travelers at the same hotel or nearby. There’s a lot of functionality — the ability to add photos, comments, ask for local recommendations, plan meetups and post questions in your social feed — and it’s a good choice for solo travelers who sometimes want to interact with others.

5. Tour groups for solo travelers. To guarantee you won’t be alone on a trip you booked solo, join a tour group. While all will ensure interaction, companies like Solos, Exodus (which has a specified Solo Travellers Holidays) and Singles in Paradise (geared toward single travelers) ensure you won’t be stuck in group of couples and friend cliques.
6. Wingman. I mentioned Wingman, an app that helps you “meet people at the airport, on your flight, and at your destination” in my article on networking in the sky with a bit of sarcasm; however, the site seems to have changed its wording around. While at first it billed itself, more or less, as the Tinder of the skies, it now seems that not just “attractive people” will find this app useful. I guess we’ll see once the app officially launch this summer.
With myriad new travel apps and platforms being launched each week — not to mention a growing traveler desire to connect with others around the world — these are far from your only options. A few others to check out: Globetrooper, TripTogether and Tripstir, launching this month.
