Singles holidays

Mark and David's verdict:

There was a time when taking a “singles” holiday was considered a bit suspect. You were either short of mates, or looking for a date. Now you'll find thousands of holiday ideas for singles, and the chance to meet those with similar interests, whether it's hiking and biking, wine tasting, or just lazing about in the sun.

Recommended tour operator: Solos Holidays

Solos Holidays says

The beauty of Solos is that you are holidaying as part of a group of sociable individuals who share a passion for travel and perhaps even a hobby or a sport.

Travelling solo for the first time needn’t be a daunting experience. We like to think of ourselves as more of a travel community than a tour operator and do our best to ensure that our ‘members’ feel comfortable, welcome and amongst friends from the start.

We have 30 years’ experience in arranging group holidays exclusively for single travellers, from UK breaks to trips to Europe and beyond. Our huge range of  ideas includes weekend breaks, themed balls, relaxing holidays in the sun, cultural sightseeing trips, cruises and action-packed activity holidays.

As you might expect, there are no single supplements on any of our holidays. Each is accompanied by a dedicated tour leader, many of whom first discovered Solos as clients so they know exactly how to help everyone get the most from their holiday.

Our online Solos Forum allows newcomers and past clients to keep in touch and exchange news, tips and reviews.

As market leaders, we believe that nobody understands the needs of the single traveller more than we do.
