Why is travel so essential for your mental health?

Need a break from the everyday? We get it. As this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week rolls around, we’re keen to shine a light on the incredible benefits that travel can bring to your mental wellbeing. It allows us to recharge those energy levels, connect with new people, escape demanding responsibilities & feel empowered as we step out of our comfort zone.  Discover how travel could help you with our wellbeing guide for the first-time solo traveller.

🌴 A Break from the Daily Grind:

Just like at work, where we’re encouraged to use all our holiday time because we need that de-stress and downtime to come back feeling refreshed, a holiday is essential for our mental wellbeing.

🌟 Relax, Decompress, & De-stress

Imagine being able to leave behind all your worries and responsibilities for a while. Travel allows you to relax, decompress, and de-stress in ways that staying at home simply can’t match.

👫 Forge Social Connections & Friendships

One of the most significant benefits of travel is the opportunity to connect with new people and forge friendships, offering a unique chance to connect with likeminded individuals and create lasting memories together.]

🏆 Achievement & Boosted Confidence

There’s something incredibly empowering about stepping out of your comfort zone and exploring new places. Whether it’s trying new foods, conquering a fear, or navigating a new city, every new experience is a chance for personal growth and achievement.




This Mental Health Awareness Week, prioritise your wellbeing and let us be your guide to explore the world and nurture your mental health along the way.

“I’ve been on loads of trips with Solos over the years and can honestly say you will not regret booking your 1st one!”

“The feeling you have once you go away on your own is worth all the nerves before! I was so very anxious the first time but now having done it 4 times, I love it!”
