It's a big old world out there, with a lifetime's supply of countries to explore. With so many wonderful destinations on the map (and no-one else to decide for you!) choosing your next solo holiday can be difficult. Don't let option paralysis hold you back! Narrow down your options by asking yourself these 6 all-important questions.

Do I need some sun?

While some of us like to spend our holidays horizontal underneath the sun, others may want to get out and explore - without breaking into a sweat.

Start by deciding whether you fancy a sun-kissed beach holiday or a cooler break away, and you'll instantly be able to eliminate a number of countries from your travel checklist.

When do I want to go?

If you're looking for some guaranteed sunshine, this should be one of the first questions you ask yourself. While the Canary Islands enjoy year-round sunshine, some places such as mainland Spain are hot and sunny in the summer months, but cool down significantly in the winter.

Likewise, if you want to book a summer break away but can't stand being hot and sweaty, choosing to travel somewhere like Norway or Slovenia could be the answer.

What is my budget?

If you haven't been on holiday in a couple of years, maybe you're looking to splash out on a long-haul adventure holiday that makes up for lost time.

Alternatively, there are so many beautiful - and more affordable - places to travel to in the UK, so if your budget is smaller why not explore someplace closer to home?

What do I want to get out of my holiday?

Are you in desperate need of a relaxing week away, or are you aching to discover a new country - or two - that's always intrigued you?

If you've never travelled solo before and you're feeling nervous, choosing a shorter city break or a weekend in the UK will help ease you into the experience gently.

On the other hand, throwing yourself into an action-packed activity holiday with other single travellers is a great way to break the ice. Those who learn - and fall over - together, stay together!

Do I want a relaxing holiday or do I like to be kept busy?

Are you in desperate need of a rejuvenating sun, sea and sand holiday, where you can relax on the beach and do little else, or would you rather spend a week soaking up a different destination every day?

Or why not have the best of both worlds? Choosing a beach holiday that's packed full of excursions and sightseeing opportunities gives you easy access to history and culture when you need it.

What's the best holiday I've been on?

If there's a holiday that stands out in your memory, it could very well reveal the secret behind your perfect solo holiday.

Do you have a soft spot in your heart for the Caribbean islands and their colourful culture? If you loved Jamaica, the chances are you'll love its neighbour Cuba too!
