Traveling alone leads to improved confidence, independence, and self-discovery. Although Under30Experiences hooks you up with a detailed itinerary, local guide, and a fantastic group of travelers, taking the first step to leave the country alone is a HUGE accomplishment!
When you travel alone you can expect to learn a lot about yourself. You'll be surprised to find how easy it is to open up and start conversations with others.
Solo travel also gives you the unique opportunity to reinvent yourself. Gone are all the preconceived notions about you from your peers back home... traveling abroad gives you a fresh start.
Having the courage to step outside your comfort zone, face your fears, and challenge yourself can help you learn more about yourself and the world. However, it is common for some women to feel nervous or intimidated about traveling solo.
We’re here to help! Under30Experiences gives you the tools to be confident, smart, and informed while traveling abroad alone for the first time.

Don’t let your fears or thoughts of loneliness keep you from traveling the world!
Under30Experiences is the perfect option for your first international solo trip, here’s why...
Does the thought of being alone abroad make you nervous about personal safety?
Safety is our number one priority, and we have years of experience leading groups all over the globe. In fact, many of the countries we visit consistently top the top destinations for solo travelers. Plus, all our Trip Leaders are First Aid & CPR certified, and have been routinely trained in emergency preparedness.
We try to form a "team" environment among our groups where we all look out for one another... as they say, there is strength in numbers. And, you'll be happy to know we have a zero-tolerance rule for bullying, harassment, and hate speech. Any violators of these rules will be asked to leave our trip.
Don't worry about planning transportation & accommodations. We've got you covered.
We take the hard work out of traveling abroad. U30X is designed for busy young adults who want to make the most out of their vacation days. Traveling internationally can be intimidating and time-consuming. You can leave the planning to us, as we organize activities to maximize your itinerary. It’s our job to be experts in these areas, have the local contacts, and give you the trip of a lifetime!
Our Trip Leaders and Regional Managers are experienced in the local areas where we travel, have local connections, emergency contacts, and vet our activities for quality and safety carefully.
Solo travel doesn't have to mean being alone.
It’s normal for the idea of traveling alone to bring up worries of loneliness. By traveling with Under30Experiences you are guaranteed to meet a group of up to eighteen travelers, both male & female. The majority of our travelers come alone and are eager to meet other young adults who share a passion for travel and an itch for adventure.
Being "like-minded" means having similar values and a love for travel... but we hope you'll find our community full of people with different thoughts, ideas, and backgrounds who bring their own unique experiences to our groups.
Peace of Mind:
Sometimes the hardest part about traveling solo is ensuring your loved ones that you are going to be safe. Letting them know that you’ll be in good hands will help them sleep at night--and you may even find a new wave of support!
How likely are you to talk to a group of strangers while you're traveling with friends or family? Probably not so likely.
Traveling with Under30Experiences is perfect for solo travelers because you meet new people right from the start. You don't need to worry about coming alone because a vibrant group of travelers is waiting for you at the airport when you arrive (most of whom are also traveling solo).
After your trip, you become part of our travel community!
In our alumni community you get access to exclusive pre-sale opportunities, weekend domestic trips, and an online platform to share travel resources, career opportunities, and more!
PLUS: More than 70% of our travelers come solo.
How many times have you been on a trip where you really wanted to do something but your friends weren't interested?
Solo travel allows you to try new things without being tied down to other people's
desires. On U30X trips you can select your optional experiences and always opt out of an activity to do your own thing.
