Christmas breaks

Cathy's verdict
Why endure the festive season alone when you could enjoy a luxury Christmas or New Year break in the UK, the southern Med or the Caribbean with other singles? Exclusively for solo travellers, Friendship Travel’s holidays have no single supplements whether you opt for a beach resort in St Lucia or a black-tie ball at a UK hotel.

Friendship Travel says

If your idea of the perfect Christmas and New Year is some “me time” or the chance to meet new friends, check out our range of festive breaks in the UK and overseas, all of them exclusively for solo travellers.

  • no single supplements
  • singles only
  • your own double room

In the UK, we have a choice of Christmas short breaks in Gerrards Cross, Milton Keynes and Chester. Each is based in a four-star hotel with your own double room, and great food.

At Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire, our hotel is the newly refurbished Crowne Plaza. This is the largest of our UK events with a real party atmosphere. It’s perfect for those who want to dress up and hit the dance floor!

In Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, we have chosen Horwood House. This is a beautiful hotel in the heart of the countryside yet it is easy to reach by rail or road. The hotel grounds are set in 38 acres so if you like a winter walk, there are plenty of options right on your doorstep.

In Chester, you’ll stay at the stylish ABode hotel – it’s all about kicking back and relaxing with company on tap as and when you want it and this historic city on your doorstep.

Our two-centre Christmas break in Belfast and Ballycastle combines festive fun in two lovely hotels with some fascinating sightseeing including a visit to the Giants Causeway.

For winter sun, you can head to the Caribbean where we have selected a handful of excellent four-star and five-star adult-only resorts. Departures are available for Christmas week and New Year at BodyHoliday in St Lucia. We also have singles holidays in Cyprus and the Canary Islands of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura.

Our skiing and snowboarding holidays, for all levels of experience, are based in high-altitude resorts in Austria and France, with Christmas and New Year departures.

We are an independent singles specialist with a tried and tested range of laid-back and relaxed holidays exclusively for solo travellers. We have won a British Travel Award in the singles holiday category every year for the past five years.

Each holiday is accompanied by a friendly, professional host. We don’t have age-specific departures but the ages are generally between 35 and 65 years (the minimum is 25 years with no upper limit).

Established in 1999, Friendship Travel is a bonded company with an ATOL licence offering full financial protection.
