Andras Rado, Corporate Communications Manager at Wizz Air said: “There is a lot to be said about the benefits of travelling on your own – from freedom of location to cheaper travel expenses. Of course, those choosing to go on holiday on their own want to ensure that the destinations they’re heading off to have plenty to keep them entertained, which is why we have collated a ranking of the best city destinations for solo travellers.
“One of the most reliable ways for travellers to gain information about the realities of travelling to a destination is through the experiences of other travellers that have been there before, which is why we know the importance of basing our ranking on reviews left by prior solo travellers to ensure that these cities have the most to offer those jetting off alone.”
