A Group Travel Company Exclusively for Solos in Their 30s & 40s
We believe in the power of community. We believe in social connection. We believe that travel can be much more fulfilling when experienced with others. Many people in their 30s & 40s are ready for their next adventure but their friends aren’t available to join. They like the idea of traveling with others their age but don’t want to end up on some corporate, box-ticking type tour. That’s where we come in. We bring together travellers in this demographic and organise the very same type of authentic, adventurous and sociable trips that you’d do with your own friends.

A Note From Our Founder Steve
I’m Steve (from Scotland), the founder of Other Way Round.
The idea spawned out of my own personal experience.
Back in my early-30s, I was living and working in London and managed to snag a few weeks holiday in between moving jobs.
I desperately wanted a break to recharge my batteries but at such short notice none of my friends were available to join.
I’d travelled alone before many times – for work trips and while backpacking in my 20s – but tbh the thought of spending a 2 week holiday alone didn’t really appeal.
Sure, I could do it, but I always preferred the social aspect of travelling with friends.
So I had a look online for options.
Most of what I saw didn’t appeal. Too generic and manufactured looking –
“live like a local”
“live your best life”
“trip of a lifetime”
Not really my style!
I’d always planned my own trips in a way that would allow me to really capture the true essence of a country.
The experience marked me.
It seemed to me that so many people face a similar issue.
They work hard all year, they want (deserve)! an awesome holiday but often have nobody else to go with.
Fast forward a few years, I decided I’d had enough of corporate life in London and wanted to try something different. Something more fulfilling.
That’s when Other Way Round was born!
I decided it would be a company that brings together people of my age, who enjoy similar activities that I do, and to share with them some of my favourite countries in the world.
We hope to see you on one of our trips soon!
