Our Customers

Travelling on your own, particularly for the first time, can be daunting. At Solos we do our upmost to support you every step of the way. But don’t just take our word for it – hear from some of our customers…


Kath travelled to Santorini with Solos and had a fantastic time. Here is what she had to say about her time in Santorini:

‘I waited a couple of months before I decided to go for it. After I booked, I was quite terrified, but it was the best week’s holiday that I have ever had. I went to Santorini, and the tour guide, Roz, was brilliant. She was one of the girls and took us to all the places that we would have never known were there! I would definitely go again!’

In terms of set itineraries, Solos Holiday offer both exploration and relaxation, with Kath saying that ‘you don’t have to go on every trip out, you can pick and choose what you do!’ Therefore, you can spend one day relaxing by the pool, and go out exploring the next!

Solos gives you the chance to meet people from all over the UK, and people on the trip were sharing stories about what they do at home, why they chose to go on a Solos holiday, and basically their life stories! Kath is also still in touch with some of the people she met on holiday!


Linda went to Greece in 2015. Before she went, she felt a bit apprehensive: ‘I was thinking of going but was a bit nervous. My colleague went and said it was brilliant, and it gave me the confidence to take the plunge and go for it.’

‘At first, it was daunting as I didn’t know anyone, but then someone asked if we all wanted to go up to the roof terrace. We then all started chatting, and after a while I felt a lot more relaxed – we then all went for food and beer, and the atmosphere was so relaxed.’

‘For those still unsure about a solo holiday, I would recommend looking at the website and the brochure, and I am also happy to chat if anyone needs any advice!’

‘It was completely out of my comfort zone, but I am so glad that I did it. When I came back, everyone at work was so pleased for me, and I will definitely do it again.’


Carol first travelled with Solos in 2010 and went on a walking holiday. She has now been on several trips with Solos and said that taking the first steps was the hardest part.

‘Even though I had a fantastic time on my trips, it still didn’t stop the first-time nerves. Before my first trip, my daughter had to push me onto the escalator at departures!’

‘My first worry was that I may be lonely whilst travelling solo. However, I soon came to find that it is a brilliant place to make new friends, even if it’s just for the week! You get the opportunity to speak to new people, with conversations ranging from sports to politics; it’s brilliant to get a different perspective on things.’

‘My advice is to be brave; everyone is in the same boat and will probably be feeling the same way that you are! Also, you are in separate rooms, so if you are feeling a bit overwhelmed, there is plenty of free time to go and read a book and relax for a while, and then go back out and explore some more. I would also advise that you should pick somewhere that you really want to go with an itinerary that really caters to what you love, as this makes it less nerve-wracking the first time round, as the excitement helps you take the first step.’
