Savings for solo travellers with On The Go Tours

TORONTO — On The Go Tours wants solo travellers to celebrate ‘Singles Awareness Day’ on Feb. 15 by booking a tour with no single supplement.

“There’s no better way to celebrate this ‘other’ holiday than to plan a solo getaway in 2020,” says the company.

On The Go Tours opened its first dedicated North American office last summer in Toronto, under the direction of Mike Quinto, On The Go’s General Manager – North America. After launching 20 years ago with a handful of Egypt trips, the soft adventure specialist now offers 50 destinations around the world, in five product ranges (Signature, Budget, Handpicked, Active and Independent).

On The Go notes the rising popularity of solo travel, both for single people and those in a relationship who for a variety of reasons opt to travel on their own.

On The Go Tours says it has designed several of its itineraries to offer solo travellers “the best of both worlds”: the freedom to go solo with the comfort of travelling in a group.

On The Go wants solo travellers to know that in addition to arranging transfers and providing English-speaking tour guides, select Signature range departures offer that rare incentive for solo travellers: the comfort of a single room at no additional cost.

“These Signature range tours are focused on exciting days and comfortable nights, with three- or four-star accommodations and lots of cultural sightseeing and experiences along the way,” says the company.

Here’s a sampling of Signature itineraries, all of which offer select departures with no single supplements in 2020:
