Traveling alone has it's pros and cons but let's look at the financial aspect of traveling alone. Is it bad or good for your wallet? If you're going to stay in a hotel then probably you'd have to pay full-price for a room which you could have split up with someone if you had a friend or spouse traveling with you? That's probably the only drawback of importance than I know of. I've been traveling solo for long and I'm sure I spent far less money than I'd have spent if I had someone tagging along. What do you think? Do you save more traveling alone or when you take someone along?
