"Single travelers may prefer to travel alone, or have little choice but to do so," said Lucille Sive, President of Lion World Travel. "Many holiday makers enjoy traveling solo as they find this is the best way to tailor their own experiences."

Some tourists enjoy traveling with a friend but prefer the privacy of their own room. As part of a family or group, a person may be the third or fifth traveler requiring a single room.

Most of the tourism industry has not catered to single travelers' needs. "We want to change that by offering no single supplements on some of our well-known spectacular deals for those traveling on their own," said Sive.

Lion World Travel is always adding new itineraries and travel dates, so please check the single room specials section on the website to view the applicable itineraries, or call Lion World Travel at 1-800-387-2706. Also check out the blog written by Sive about women traveling solo to Africa.
