1-in-4 Americans Prefer To Travel Alone

More people are taking vacations to get a little me-time.
A quarter of Americans now say they prefer to travel alone.

In fact: some newlyweds are even taking separate honeymoons.
The New York Times recently profiled a couple who took separate trips after their wedding.
They couldn’t agree on a destination, so she went sightseeing in Canada and he went to France to watch a soccer match with his friends.

According to a new survey of 2,000 Americans, traveling solo is becoming more popular.
Around half say a travel companion actually holds them back, while 22% say they exclusively travel by themselves.
Most say being alone makes them more likely to meet locals and step outside their comfort zone.
