Travelling with a friend or friends clearly has its advantages - of course, you may not stay friends for long!
Going on an organised activity clearly means you will quickly get to know other people well - this process could start well before the departure date.
Some people actually prefer to travel alone, through personal choice. They often don't stay alone for long.
Finding someone to travel with is now not difficult - but it needs careful consideration. Check people out! eg ask to meet friends of your travel companion. Some sources for finding travelling companions are:
- notice boards at travel/gap year exhibitions
- the directories listed at elsewhere on this site often have travel companion areas
- www.companions2travel.co.uk If you would rather meet potential companions in a group, you can attend one of the various member and C2T organised conventions and activity weekends that occur all over the UK.
