Singles Holidays and Solo Travellers - you are not alone
We are often asked about singles holidays for over 50s, and
we’ve brought together a range of suggestions and ideas to help you make the best decision for your next holiday.
We're delighted to report that not only are specialists such as Solos Holidays providing a great choice, but also, many of the larger tour operators have listened
to our requests and are reducing or removing the dreaded single supplement.
And we’re pleased to note that many of the
cruise lines are building their new ships, or re-modelling older vessels, to
include more single cabins.
Our top recommendation is:
Solos Holidays is an
award-winning specialist tour operator with over 30 years’ experience. If you’re a little nervous about heading off
on a two week holiday for your first ‘on your own’ holiday, try a UK dinner
dance or an overnight trip
to a Christmas market to test the water. And then you’ll realise just what fun travelling with a group can be,
especially when a tour director is always on hand to support and advise. Before long, you could be off on a sun
and sand holiday, or an activities break,
with many different sports to be enjoyed.
