“I know the hotel will be good, interesting and off the beaten track excursions are all included – we can count on tour guide Richard to make everything run smoothly, he is always there.” So says one of a party of 25 on a One Traveller trip for singles to Sorrento and the intoxicating Amalfi coast. “I feel secure with them” another says – just what single travellers want to hear!
If you enjoyed Rick Stein’s recent TV series ‘Secret France’, then a Nicols boat trip easing through the same gorgeous landscapes may be the perfect way to recreate that sense of freedom, fun and great food for yourself. You don’t need prior boating experience with Nicols – the waterways are easy to navigate and the boats are well-equipped with all the home comforts, making this a slow travel trip to truly savour.
Anyone living with a disability – or caring for someone who is – will know how much a break from the everyday can mean. And that’s where Sandpipers, in a lovely location on Marine Lake, north of Southport, can come in. Revitalise has created this fully accessible holiday centre (and two others) for disabled people to enjoy a much-needed break, with or without their carer, offering seamless, 24-hour care as well as live entertainment and excursions. And they see the person, not just the carer, as this reviewer explains.
The Canadian Rockies are one of the highest ranking places on many a traveller’s wishlist. And with good reason – the jewel-coloured lakes, soaring mountains, thrilling wildlife and warm welcome create a great holiday mix. Travelsphere can make it happen, offering authentic experiences that go beyond the guidebook with expert Tour Managers and Specialist Local Guides, in groups of 35 or fewer.
Emerald Waterways have some super solo opportunities for river cruising in ‘Starships’ style – and very inclusively, with flights, drinks at mealtimes, wi-fi and standard excursions included – on their Danube Delights 8-day sailing 1 November at £1,845 for a single room, or 30 May with no single supplement for a twin room at £2,645. Or sail from Marseilles to Lyon for 8 days from £2,395 in single accommodation.
Eurocamp has a great range of ‘car optional’ choices where some mobile homes with all the amenities have 40% off in June. Their lively Internacional de Calonge parc, for example starts from just £210 for a week in air-conditioned two-bedroomed comfort at a terraced parc with fantastic views, a panoramic pool, tennis on site and golf and canoeing nearby – and a footbridge to a private beach on the Costa Brava.
Saga Cruises is making a big investment in shiny new ships – and very impressive they are too. Spirit of Discovery and her soon-to-be-launched sister, Spirit of Adventure carry 999 passengers, all in balcony rooms (20% of them for singles) but you’d barely know it. Spacious, imaginative and high-spec, with lots included (door-to-door pick-ups, drinks at mealtimes) plus Saga’s signature friendly atmosphere, these ships are a great way to cruise.
