5 Tips for Making Friends While Traveling Alone 
6 Apps and Social Media Platforms for Meeting New People

Google Flights | Just the best. Shows you ticket prices months in advance so you can strategically choose the most inexpensive day to travel.

Skyscanner | Great day-to-day price comparisons of flights.

Kayak | Good search engine to use as a starting point.

Hostelbookers | Hostels are not glamorous, but they cover basic amenities and are very, very affordable. Hostel common rooms are also a great place to make new friends!

Airbnb | Live like a local at price points lower than most hotels.

Couchsurfing | My favorite social media platform, and a great way to crash on locals’ couches for free. Check out my article on my love of Couchsurfing:
