Number of single travellers doubles in two years

The number of Brits travelling alone has doubled in the last two years, according to a new survey. Research by LV= insurance has found that 13% of Brits have holidayed on their own in the last year, compared to 6% in 2008. Of the single travellers, 41% were in a relationship and 27% were married. Around 20% said they travelled alone to find adventure, while 16% preferred their own company and 7% said their friends or family could not afford a holiday. City breaks were the most popular type of holidays for solo travellers, followed by beach holidays and backpacking.
