There will be lots of decisions to make this year. But when it comes to your Solos holiday – we want you to savour it, soak it up and ultimately embrace it with zero regrets. We know that a great trip can be life changing. Not just the time you spend away, but the people you meet and the ideas you gather. After all, our holidays last long after your plane touches down…

Taking that first step can be daunting, but we promise you that you’re not alone. We will be with you every step of the way – from the moment you enquire with us, right through to the holiday itself, and beyond. We’re always on-hand to help. During your stay, our friendly and reliable Tour Leaders will take care of every little detail, and provide that extra cushion of security, should you need it. 


“Our Tour Leader Christine was beyond amazing and a joy to be with. She even discovered additional trips for us to enjoy.” – Susan 


“First time going with Solos Holidays. Great experience from start to finish. First holiday by myself and felt safe and secure. A wonderful Tour Leader Monica – always wanting to have fun with everyone and making sure everyone had a great time and got involved if they wanted to. No pressure if you wanted to go alone anywhere or in a group. Was always respectful of your decision. I would definitely book with Solos again! Met some wonderful people.” – Barbara 


Meeting new people, forging new friendships and feeling that sense of achievement are just some of the benefits that come from travelling independently. But don’t just take our word for it! Our Solos holidaymakers are all individual in their own way, but the one thing they all have in common is an unwavering belief that you’ll never regret coming on a Solos holiday. 


So, what does that first time feel like? Hear it from those who have stood in your shoes…

“I think it takes a lot of courage to go away on your own. The good news though, is you aren’t taking the step on your own. The people you meet on Solos are often nervous as well or have been there.” – David 


“Yes, the first time is nerve-wracking, but once you arrive and see that Solos board held up, they scoop you up and care for you beautifully. I’ve made lifelong friends through my trips and they are also great fun!”  – Sandra 


“I can promise you that you won’t regret it. Look how many have found the freedom to travel solo & love it. I have never seen anyone regretting taking the plunge!” – Lynn 


“Be brave and just book. Think what you like doing – sun, sea, countryside & walking. With Solos, there is so much to choose from. We’ve all been in your shoes, but with the Solos family, you are never on your own. I’ve been travelling with them for around 14 years and each year look forward to where I’m going next. Take the plunge and book. Just remember – you are going on holiday with friends. You just haven’t met them yet.” – June 


So, if you’re feeling a little apprehensive about taking your first solo trip, come along with us, let your worries wash away in the pool and see why our customers never look back…
