If the fear of the unknown is stopping you from travelling solo, then read on and find out how this program can take away the uncertainty.
Solo travel can be life-changing. So if you want to give it a go, this might help.
Make your dream a reality
Do you long to travel but have no one to go with? And tours are really not your thing?
It can be frustrating. Wanting to do something and not finding a way to make it happen.
It is not a problem that only exists if you are single. Even if you are surrounded by friends and family doesn’t mean you automatically have a travel companion.
Friends may not have time or money; your spouse may not have the same desire to travel like you, or you find yourself wanting to travel to destinations others are not interested in.
So, what’s the solution?
You might already have thought about solo travel but dismissed.
For those of you who think solo travel is crazy because you don’t want to go alone, you think you would hate it, it’s not safe, or your family would worry about you. Stop.
If you have a burning passion to travel, then wouldn’t it be worthwhile to overcome those hurdles. Those fears.
What is really stopping you?
If it’s fear, I get it. It can seem like a frightening and dangerous world out there. But it’s no more dangerous than being at home.
Perhaps you just don’t know where to start.
I understand. I was once standing in your shoes.
I wanted to travel so desperately. I could not see a way to do it. And I have a travel business! My small group tours were not filling fast enough; my partner has a business he cannot leave; friends were doing their own thing.
That left solo travel. But I thought people who travelled on their own were nuts! And very brave. I did not think I was a brave person.
I couldn’t see myself solo travelling, let alone enjoying it.
But slowly, the thought mulled over in my mind. A number of years ago I started reading about the Camino. And eventually, the idea of solo travel took hold.
If so many other women could do it, maybe I could too.
I read articles and books and websites on solo travel. I became a member of Facebook Groups and devoured posts written by solo travellers about their experiences.
Bit by bit I thought that I could maybe travel by myself. Maybe.
Then I decided I couldn’t wait to travel any longer. So, I did what I always do when something overwhelms me and sends my anxiety reeling. I backed myself into a corner and said I was going.
Once spoken, it’s hard to take back.
And for you to understand the enormity of that decision you should read Why I Solo Travelled and How it Changed Me.
I have a lot of travel experience. But I was petrified.
What if something happened?
How would I find my way around?
Would I enjoy being on my own for three weeks?
I had to stop playing the “What If” game. After deciding to go for it I set out to create a plan for myself — not only an itinerary but an idea on how I would manage travelling solo.
Planning is the way I get around my anxiety. If you think a plan is too restrictive, don’t worry. I usually create the plan to build confidence, and when I am comfortable I ditch it and go with the flow.
It was during my solo trip to Italy that I became aware of a community following along with me. My online community on Facebook. It was incredible.
Since then people have written to me and commented on how they wish they could travel solo too.
Fear can be crippling, but what if I had a way to help you? Would you be interested?
Because let me tell you, once you travel solo the confidence and freedom you experience is beyond words.
To know you can jump on a plane and experience the joys of travel without ever having to depend on someone else is incredible.
And so, the Solo Travel Program was born.
The Solo Travel Program
The problem with embarking on solo travel is fear.
Fear of the unknown.
Even with previous travel experience, it can be scary. It’s not only the travel components which could test us but the idea of being totally on our own.
That’s hard for a lot of people to comprehend and deal with.
The thing is you won’t know until you try.
The Solo Travel Program allows you to solo travel with support. You will be supported before and during your trip.
I will explain in more detail below, but in short, this is how the program works: –
You will travel with me. You will begin your trip with me, and then you will embark on a short solo journey (length of the solo component is completely up to you)
At the beginning of our trip, you will build confidence and gain familiarity of the destination before heading off on your own.
Or you can do the whole trip on your own; it’s up to you.
The whole time you are on your own, I will be close by so if you feel anxious, all you need to do is reach out and chat.
I will also organise a dinner/meetup you can join if you want to connect face to face.
Before your trip, I will help you with all aspects of planning your itinerary, booking your accommodation and transport. I will take you through the process step by step.
I will be there for you every step of the way.
How many opportunities do you get to try something like this with support?
How Does the Solo Travel Program Work?
Ok. Let’s go into more detail.
Here is a step by step guide on how the Solo Travel Program works.
- Join Cindy’s Travel Club – you can read all the details here.
- Contact me (email, Messenger) and let’s chat.
- Once we decide on a trip/destination we will organise your plans together.
- The trip you choose will either be one I have already planned or one that Travel Club members are organising. But let’s chat before deciding.
Before the trip I can help you:
- Plan your itinerary
- Determine the best accommodation to suit your travel style
- Book your accommodation
- Plan your Daily Schedule
- Manage your time and loneliness when travelling
- Pack light and stay safe

Before booking your trip, you will determine if you want to embark on a full solo trip or travel with me initially before heading off on your own.
While you are travelling solo, I will be close by – nearby destination, town, village etc.
You will be connected with me via Messenger or WhatsApp. And I will be available to meet face to face.
What is included in the Solo Travel Program?

How much does the Solo Travel Program Cost?
The fee for the entire program is dependent on your needs.
For example, if you want me to organise your itinerary and travel plans, the program would start at $150.
Each component has a different charge. Together we can build the program you need.
And you will only ever have to pay a fee once. Because once you master solo travel, you will never look back.
From the time you join the program till after your trip, you will have my support and guidance as well as access to all the online tutorials and attendance to live workshops (if you can attend).
I will support every part of your trip from planning to booking and everything in between.
The fee, of course, does not include your travel expenses.
However, you will quickly find out that when you travel solo things can be a whole lot cheaper when you are doing what you want to do and not committed to a tour or an itinerary someone else has planned for you.
Who is the Solo Travel Program for?
This program is for the traveller who wants to learn how to solo travel independently instead of joining a tour group.
Being able to plan and book their trips whenever they want to.
The program is for the traveller who wants to overcome the fear of the unknown and embark on solo trips with confidence.
I am in Australia, but you don’t need to be Australian to be a part of the Solo Travel Program. I can help you plan your trip and provide you with support and guidance regardless. Just click the box below and let’s chat.
Imagine the freedom of planning a trip to a destination you have dreamed about for years and finally having the courage to plan it and go? Not having to wait for anyone else or having to compromise.
As a traveller, I can’t imagine anything better than that.
