Connecting: Solo Travel Network
Connecting: Solo Travel Network (CSTN) is a Canadian not-for-profit organization that specializes in finding information for single senior travelers. Members receive a useful newsletter and three e-books—”Single-Friendly Travel Directory”, “Going Solo Tales” and “Going Solo Tips.” The website lists single-friendly tour operators, cruises, hotels and more, but CSTN is aimed at all ages. You will still need to investigate each cruise line and tour operator to ensure that the trip’s activity level and demographics are right for you.

Singles Travel International
Singles Travel International offers trips and cruises for all age ranges, but they also offer cruises for singles ages 50 and over several times each year. You can go on safari or get away for a weekend to explore Italy, and you get to choose either a room sharing option or higher-cost private room. Smokers, snorers, and travelers who use a CPAP machine may need to pay for a higher-cost single room if a roommate cannot be found for them. Some trips take you far from medical assistance. Carefully review the itinerary details before you book your tour.

Solo’s Holidays offers international trips and activity trips for singles in three different age ranges: over 30, over 40, and over 50—as well as tours for singles of all ages. Because this tour operator is based in the UK, trips depart from London and are priced in British pounds. They offer single rooms and private facilities, and most trips do not have a single supplement. It is easier to find Solo's Holidays trips for senior travelers by searching for “age 45 and up” than by searching for “travelers age 50 and up.”
