Our Story


We’re Alyssa and Melanie.

We love solo travel. It offers you the freedom to explore the world your way. As lifelong travellers ourselves, we have covered most corners of the globe.

We both began solo travelling early in our 20s. Solo travel back then meant jumping on a tour, or staying in hostels as a way to meet new people. But as we hit our 40s (and beyond!), our travel style evolved. As life and work got busy, our holidays became even more important. We no longer wanted to stay in hostels to meet people, but staying in a hotel alone can feel isolating. It’s nice to have people to dine with, to go to the local wine-bar with, or explore those off-the-beaten-track places.

Group tours may still be a good option but being solo among a sea of couples can be daunting. And then there’s the pesky (and costly) ‘single supplements’ . Unless you want to share with a stranger (no thanks!).

We understand the challenges faced by solo travellers.

And so, Solo Luxe was born. A solo travel community where like-minded explorers can come together. A place where you can share your travel dreams and experiences. An opportunity to join our exclusive hosted journeys, or connect with a solo travel expert.

With over 35 years of combined travel industry experience, as well as years of lived travel experiences, you can rest assured you’re in safe hands.

Welcome to our Solo Travel Community.
