An Australian man named Troy Elmes recently developed an app called 'Solo Traveller' that helps those traveling alone connect with others on the road. While there are a number of apps that help consumers find friends in their immediate area, Elmes' new platform is specifically geared towards slightly older consumers looking for a travel companion with similar interests.

The Solo Traveller app is a free smartphone app that helps solo travelers connect with one another and navigate new destinations. The app works by letting users browse through a series of profiles created by other solo travelers before sending a message. Users can also their filter results by age, gender and location in order to find the perfect travel companion. Moreover, the app can be used for a wide variety of purposes meaning users can arrange for anything from sharing a taxi to planning an excursion together.

Unlike other travel apps, Solo Traveller specifically caters to the growing number of singles taking trips each year.
