    Singles holidays specialist companies

    By Cathy Winston, Editor of 101 Singles Holidays

    Here’s a list of singles holidays specialist companies in the UK. There are many other tour operators and hotel groups that offer deals and holidays for single and solo travellers (visit our homepage for details), but these are the companies that cater exclusively for people travelling alone.

    Solos Holidays

    Solos Holidays was founded in 1982, the first specialist singles holiday company in the UK. It has a wide choice of options including beach holidays (including ClubSolos), city breaks, activity holidays and escorted group tours. Visit the website.

    friendship-2

    Friendship Travel

    Founded in 1999, Friendship Travel offers “relaxed, friendly and unstructured” holidays for singles, including cruises, house parties, city breaks, ski and long haul holidays, as well as dinner dances in the UK. None of the trips has a single supplement, and regional departures (with a small extra charge) are available for 75% of all trips. Check out the website and the late deals. You can also download or order a brochure.

    Solo Travellers

    Solo Travellers

    Solo Travellers Group Tours is the UK’s only company that specialises exclusively in group tours for single travellers. It prides itself on putting together journeys into some of the world’s most interesting countries, with weekend breaks in cities such as Vilnius, Krakow, Reykjavik and Bucharest, and adventure holidays in places as diverse as India, Vietnam, Sri Lanka and Cuba. See the website for more details.

    Travel One

    Travel One

    Travel One has been providing house-party holidays and cruises for groups of single travellers since 1998. It runs an annual Christmas house party in Lanzarote and an autumn party in Spain. Its clientele are mostly – but not exclusively – people in their 40s, 50s and 60s. Find out more on the website.

    single with kids

    Single with Kids

    As its name suggests, this is a company specialising in holidays for single mums and dads and their children, offering exciting trips including cheap camping weekends, summer beach breaks in Majorca and themed weeks such as the Lapland Adventure Holiday. At Christmas and New Year it runs festive party weekends. Visit the website.

    Mercury

     Mercury Holidays

    Although Mercury Holidays doesn’t offer group holidays for solo travellers, it’s one of the few generalist companies to take a genuine interest in people that holiday alone. It has worked hard to negotiate no single supplements in double and twin rooms at a wide range of hotels around the world, bringing down costs for its loyal clients, and for that we think it deserves recognition. Visit the website for more details.

    Solitair Holidays

    Solitair has been arranging group singles holidays for more than 20 years, developing its product range in line with changing trends and demographics. It has a range of holidays in Europe and worldwide including cruise, ski, winter sun and multi-activity. Prices usually include flights from the UK.

    Single Parents on Holiday

    Founded in 2005 by two working mums, Single Parents on Holiday specialises in group trips for adults and children with an imaginative selection of ideas at the luxury end. However, it also offers solo holidays without kids including short breaks and an annual ski trip. Visit the site for more details.

    Mistral Singles

    The Mistral is a friendly family-run hotel on the island of Crete with a singles-only policy and a house party atmosphere. With guests aged from their 20s to their 70s, it has a high repeat rate, with regulars attracted by the double rooms (with no single supplement), nearby beach, spa treatments, two swimming pools, Jacuzzi and terraced gardens.
