This Singles’ Day, Jetstar is offering 111,111 seats on sale from 7 to 18 November, in response to insights from 1,001 passengers who shared their feelings on travelling solo.

Respondents were between the ages of 39 and 74, made up of both male and female travellers (524 male and 472 female). The survey took place online in October 2019.

Of the 1,001 surveyed, 49% have been on personal solo trips at least four times in their lives (business trips do not count!), making solo travel more common than you would think.

Fifty-five per cent of solo travellers do so out of personal choice and forty-four per cent of travellers felt comfortable travelling without their partners.

More than half (59%) of these solo travellers said they felt more refreshed than if they travelled with friends and family. There’s something to be said about the feeling of absolute freedom on solo trips. In fact, whether they have been on solo trips or not, 61% said they associated the idea of such trips with feeling free.

So, whether you haven’t tried travelling solo ever, or have been solo all your life, now’s as good a time as any to go on a solo adventure. Mark the date and make the most of Jetstar’s Singles’ Day Sale by visiting here.
