Top 10 Films About Solo Travel

Solo travel films don’t mean the protagonist has to be on the vacation alone.

Well, it’s an element of the movie, we agree, but it’s not the only element.

What we believe solo travel films are about is how one person enjoys the vacation despite being surrounded by other people. 

We have found some of the best solo travel movies on the web, and they all touch on the same notion of traveling in some way. They all have the ability to inspire us to tour the globe.

Now, let’s start with the list of the best films on solo travel.
