Alan E. Lewis, Chairman and CEO of Grand Circle Corporation, whose travel brands Overseas Adventure Travel (OAT) and Grand Circle Travel (GCT) provide international vacations to Americans age 50+, today announced the company's top 10 greatest savings and benefit enhancements for solo travelers in 2012, the vast majority of whom are women.
"In the past two years, 140,000 women have traveled with us and of these, about 48,000 booked as solos, either traveling on their own or with female friends," said Lewis.
"More and more women are choosing to travel this way because it allows them to pursue exactly what they want during a trip without having to consider a spouse or partner. To better serve our women travelers in 2012, we are offering reduced or free single supplements, allocating more single space, and providing a whole range of enhanced services. We are totally committed to being the world's leading tour operator for American women 50 and older."
