Look for airline packages on airlines' sites.

If you have a frequent flyer card or frequent hotel card, contact the airline or hotel to see if they have special packages for loyal customers like you.

Don't forget to check with organizations you belong to like university alumni groups, AAA, or professional organizations. These groups commonly have solo travelers. If they don't have special prices available, ask them to put you on a list of travelers looking for a travel companion.

No matter when you go, solo travel offers plenty of rich rewards. Solo travelers by definition are usually happy to be left alone when they want to be, but they usually find a good mix of companionship during their journeys.
