BETTER RATES FOR SOLO TRAVELLERS

AMA works with a wide selection of partners to ensure the ‘single supplement fee’ is waived or dramatically reduced. This is a fee that travel companies, cruise lines and hotels often charge to lone travellers that can bring the cost of tours, cruise and hotel rooms up significantly. If you prefer a private room, we can make sure to find you waived single supplement options for your room. If you would prefer to make a new friendship, we can find you shared accommodations.

WHY TRAVEL SOLO?

Solo travel is one of the fastest growing segments in the travel industry. Solo travellers come from all backgrounds and walks of life – this isn’t just for lone wolves anymore. Whatever your reasons are for wanting to explore this big, beautiful world, we say don’t let fear hold you back! Experience Solo Travel with AMA!

Your solo tour gives you the opportunity to explore the world, and stretch your own personal boundaries:
