If you’ve never travelled solo before you’re probably wondering what all the fuss is about. We might be biased, but we think travelling independently of your friends, family or partner is pretty fun – and here’s why…

After holidaying with the same people year after year, leaving them behind to travel independently is a fun and thrilling experience you’d find it difficult to regret.

If you still need convincing, here are all the reasons why solo travel is the best thing you can do this year…

You feel free

There’s nothing more liberating than deciding to leave your friends and family behind for a solo adventure.

And, once you’ve made the initial leap of faith to book your singles holiday, you’ll only encounter more and more freedom as your holiday unfolds.

The beauty of a Solos holiday is that, although you’ll travel with a group of fellow single travellers, you’ll always have the choice to do whatever you want, whenever you want to.

Fancy spending a day on the beach? Go ahead. Like the look of a local restaurant? Book a table. Simply leave your hotel in the morning and see where your feet take you…

You’ll never be lonely

Many people wrongly assume that they’ll feel lonely if they travel alone, but in fact, it’s usually the exact opposite.

Travelling with close friends or family often makes you less willing to venture out of your circle to meet new potential friends. But when you’re without the comfort blanket of people you know, befriending fellow travellers will happen so naturally you won’t even need to think about it.

Remember, friendships are formed through shared commonalities. If you’re travelling with a group of first-time solo travellers, you already have something in common!

You could discover a new side to yourself

Travelling solo is a chance for you to try things you never thought you’d try – and discover a new zest for life along the way.

Maybe you’ve always wanted to try a skiing holiday, but never had anyone to go with. Or perhaps a safari adventure has been on your bucket list for years, but your friends can’t take the time off to travel. Either way, travelling with Solos is a chance for you to test yourself and uncover hidden skills and passions.

From zip-lining in Slovenia to white-water rafting in Norway, there’s so many activities out there waiting to peak your interest…

You’ll make friends for life

By far one of the best parts of solo travel is the fun you’ll have with people along the way. After holidaying together, many of our Solos customers remain close friends for life. We’ve even had a few marriages!

From the very first moment you meet your Tour Leader at the airport or your hotel, to your final wave goodbye to your new-found friends, our holidays create a warm, welcoming environment where you’ll immediately feel comfortable and at home.

You can be spontaneous

When you travel alone, you’re given permission to think solely about yourself – and no-one else. This gives you the freedom to be spontaneous on holiday and throw yourself into new opportunities you’d usually let pass you by.

Ask that man you’ve had your eye on to join you for dinner, or ditch the group for a day excursion you’ve been desperate to try. Make the most of your freedom and, most importantly, have fun!

“I’m sure you will enjoy it, I have been on three solos holidays to date and the people I’ve met have been great.”

“I’ve been travelling with Solos for nearly 20 years, on and off. The reason is for exactly what you want – you meet like minded people… and have loads of fun!”

“I’ve been on loads of trips with Solos over the years and can honestly say you will not regret booking your 1st one!”

“The feeling you have once you go away on your own is worth all the nerves before! I was so very anxious the first time but now having done it 4 times, I love it!”
