New Ways To Help Solo Travellers Enjoy The Benefits Of Group Travel

Travelling in groups can be fun and cost effective. If you have ever gone on holiday on your own because friends or family could not get the time off to join you, or because you love skiing, sailing, sunbathing, hiking or golfing and they do not, then we have a few ideas for your next holiday.

Seats on planes are always priced per person, but getting from the airport to your destination is not so simple. You are often faced with the cost of paying for a private vehicle by yourself. FindTransfers.com is trying to help avoid this with a new Shared Transfers Forum.

Share The Cost Of Your Airport Transfers

The Shared Transfers Page on FindTransfers.com helps you to find other people travelling in the same direction and at the same time. You can then contact each other and arrange to share a taxi or airport transfer and split the cost. Sharing an airport transfer is better for the environment as it will be one less journey made by road, and it can also be a lot more entertaining as you will have someone to chat to on the way.

The Shared Transfers Page also allows local airport taxi and transfer companies to advertise any empty journeys they have in their schedule on a per person basis. This means that you may be able to jump in a taxi or minibus that would otherwise have been making a journey empty and pay a fraction of the cost of a private transfer.

Join A Group Holiday Club

So once you have got a great deal on your airport transfers, there is still the matter of single supplements in hotels to deal with. You may also prefer to be around other people who are in a similar situation to yourself, where you are passionate about a particular type of holiday but do not know anyone who shares your enthusiasm.

A great solution is to join a club that organises these types of holidays and negotiates away single supplements. You therefore get the benefits of group prices and meet people with similar interests.

One such club is www.singlesport.com which is run by Ruth Paul. Ruth organises a range of skiing holidays each winter and has also started to organise summer holidays to beach clubs.
