The research found that a solo traveler will probably pay between 50 and 80 percent more on travel than a couple. The reason should be obvious – it’s cheaper to split the cost for things like Uber rides, hotel rooms, and fancy bottles of wine.

Though saving a few bucks isn’t a good reason to couple up, traveling with a friend might help keep costs down on your next expedition.
