Abstract [en]

Existing literature on solo traveling covers constraints of traveling as well as motivation byfocusing on specific geographical areas (Chung at al., 2017; Yang & Tung, 2018; Yang, 2020).Further, the current literature is focusing predominantly on female solo travel as well ason general information on solo travelers' constraints and motivations (Alonso-Vazquez,2023). Nevertheless, the gap of in depth understanding of driving forces and constraintsgenerally and between the different genders can be found (Yang, 2020). Another researchgap, addressing the influence the COVID-19 pandemic had on solo traveling was identified.To re-address this gap in knowledge, this research paper has the following aims:

  • To investigate the Covid-19 pandemics influence on motivation to go on solo trips.
  • To explore the changes in destination choices by solo travelers during the pandemic aswell as in the post-pandemic era.
  • To find out the impact of the pandemic on the perception of solo travel by solo travelers.
  • Identify a possible trend in solo travelling which was caused due to the pandemic.
