New York City Travel Deals And Trip Packages For Singles

When most people think of travelling to New York as a single, they cringe. Not because they fear being trapped next to a talker on the plane, or worry that the stigma of "dinner for one" will keep them from venturing too far from their hotel room. What makes most travelers drag people they may not even like on their travels is because of the dreaded singles penalty. Experienced travelers know that as a single, you can be subject to extra fees that amount to as much as 130% of the price that couples pay for the same services. But, although singles will always be less lucrative for business than couples making extra charges hard to get around, savvy single person travelers know about these New York travel deals.

Book at the Last Minute You've probably had the plans for your New York vacation for weeks, or find that your business takes you to New York there often and figure that the smart thing to do is to plan ahead. Wrong. One travel deal that smart single person New York travelers take advantage of is last minute booking. When it gets down to the wire, airlines slash their prices in order to fill seats. You run the risk of losing your spot, but with many flights daily its often worth the gamble if your timeline is flexible.

Buddy Up Did you know that four in ten people opt for single person travel? In response to this rising trend, there are several travel agencies that deal specifically with single travelers. They are able to get their customers around the single's penalty by pairing singles with like minded individuals and booking their flights and hotel stays together. Considering that people find roommates and sign year long leases in much the same way, it's not a bad idea. Match.com even has even come up with Matchtravel.com. Just fill out a profile and they'll send you to New York or anywhere you'd like to go with another single who's more likely to be compatible with you than the one you meet at the hotel bar when you've had enough of hanging with yourself.

Group Tour If all that quality time with a stranger has you second guessing your trip altogether, consider going on a group tour. When most people think about New York, Manhattan is the only place that comes to mind. However, New York is a vast state with a lot of natural beauty to offer. Why not consider booking a travel adventure tour? There are an abundance of tour groups out there. Call around to a few of them and find out if any other singles have booked the tour. Room sharing will defray any singles penalties (usually less severe with group excursions). Alternatively, build some flexibility into your vacation plans and call the day after final payment for the tour is due. Like the airlines, the likelihood is that they'll be desperate to fill their quota and they'll cut you a deal so sweet that even with the modest singles penalty you'll still make out like a bandit.
