How to find solo travel deals

Do you love traveling alone? Sounds boring but some people enjoy it all by themselves along the beach, on a nature walk or any other destination of their choice. To understand how to get the best deals for solo travels, read on.

How to find solo travel deals

A substitute destination

If you want to tour centuries-old destinations or castles, compare different prices in different parts of the world. You can, for instance, compare prices for the Eastern Europe and western. If you have been dreaming of the south pacific, compare prices between Tahiti and Cook Islands.

Travel off-season

You will get better travel deals when other people are not traveling. People do not realize that you can get as low 50% off by the second week in September. This is applicable in south France just before hotels close for the season. Offseason plans can as well be adjusted depending on the season or time of the year. In areas like the Caribbean, rates reduce as heat rises. If you are a beach lover, you can land the best deals between July and August.

Use your calculator

Mostly rates are not cumulative. You must, therefore, compare the deals which you qualify. Different rates apply for corporate employees, government officials, and students and so on. Check the lowest prices you can get depending on your category. You can utilize publicly available deals as well.

Gift yourself

How does this happen? If you have been working all year long, you need to gift yourself, like reward yourself for major achievements. Last minute deals might force you to hotels or destinations you never wanted. To enjoy your rest time start planning and saving early. You can check for flight deals but at least get yourself the best hotels.

Finance gurus

Look for areas where the dollar or the currency you are using buy has the most value. For example, the Canada and US exchange rates are doing well at the moment. Although you will get more from a dollar in the UK, you will get a lesser value for the same in London. The number of solo travelers are increasing by day forcing the travel provider to come up with deals that favor them. It is, however, important to book early to enjoy the special deals. Check the websites of the destinations you want to tour solo from time to time for any updates or deals.




Types of tents

There are many makes and models of tents today. Tent size is described by the number of people who can occupy a tent at a go. The bigger the tent, the more the people it can accommodate.
Today tents are made of different fabrics; it is no longer the traditional canvas.

Types of tents


Cotton makes an excellent material for tents. It is however rare today. The only disadvantage of canvas tents is that it is heavier compared to tents made from modern fabrics. The wonderful smell inside a cotton tent cannot be compared to anything else. Cotton breathes by itself hence less condensation and suspension compared to modern fabrics.

PVC coated canvas tents

PVC coating is used to make tents waterproof and strong. Such tents have an added weight and tent condensations. You should note that condensation can be a big problem with any fabric coated tent. You must, therefore, make sure that there is enough condensation.

Polycotton canvas tents

It is a natural blend of cotton and polyester. Smaller fabrics with similar lengths can be achieved. Just like cotton, the tent can be left uncoated, but you must treat it for it to repel water.


Polyester tents come in different coatings. Different manufacturers name them differently depending on the coating used. When buying polyester tents, consider those with breathable coatings and that which does not provide moisture. Choose a material that does not shrink to get baggy. Material not easily affected by the sun is preferred too.


This is the cheapest tent you will get around. But you must know that it does not absorb water. This can imply that the fabric is as light as you want. In addition to that, it is affected by UV lights. Exposure to sunlight shortens its lifespan. To reduce this effects, light filters can be used. If you want a fireproof tent, I am sorry there is none. Tent manufacturers claim that their tents are fireproof, but in the real sense all tents can burn down. Avoid tools with open flames.

Tent for events

If you are planning an outdoor event, consider using huge tents. This is to make sure that no matter the weather your guests will feel comfortable. Do not always feel comfortable with a shining sun; it might rain hours later or even when the sun is bright. Better be safe than sorry.
