Why Solo Travellers Group Holidays?

Solo Travellers Group Holidays was created in 2011 when the company’s founder, Nena, met with a group of friends to try and organise their next holiday. She’d always been good at organising the trips, but found it was getting increasingly more difficult to find friends to plan a trip with, let alone agree on a destination and budget, or get the same time off work. This was down to the fact that lot of her friends had settled down or wanted to do different things, and after asking around, she found others were experiencing the same problem. Having worked in the travel industry for over 20 years, and having already travelled much of the world, Nena wanted to use her experience and expertise to create a community of like-minded solo travellers who also wanted to explore the world with small groups, share experiences, and make new friends. This is when Solo Travellers Group Holidays was founded as a small independent company with a team that loved to travel and who take pride in going the extra mile to ensure the best customer experience with a personal service.

Solo Travellers Group Holidays recognise that people are leading increasingly busy lifestyles, making travel with friends and family more difficult, and finding dates to go away with each other sometimes impossible. Founding Solo Travellers Group Holidays was the perfect solution. They now organise tailor-made group tours, where anyone can join in and take advantage of the fact that everything is pre-organised, but where travellers still have the time and freedom to go off and explore on their own, which is the perfect balance.

Initially, Solo Travellers Group Holidays began offering European trips, finding that first-timers preferred a shorter trip to ease themselves into a new experience. Now, they travel to all corners of the earth and are constantly adding new destinations to their ever-expanding portfolio. Whether it’s salsa dancing into the night in Cuba, trekking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu in Peru, or relaxing with a cocktail as you watch the sunset in stunning Santorini, they believe they have something for everyone to enjoy.

Solo Travellers Group Holidays also understand that you may have reservations or be hesitant about joining a trip on your own for the first time, which is why they send one of their friendly, well-travelled hosts on all their European trips, and why they have amazing local guides to accompany you on longer adventures.

As for your fellow travellers, you’ll find that most people are in the same boat as you; individuals in search of adventure with other solos, looking to make new friends to catch up with over a glass of wine whilst you slurp on linguine in Florence, or munch on tagine in Morocco.  Solo Travellers Group Holidays also have plenty of repeat customers, which helps create the community feel that is so important to many solo travellers. This is another reason they believe in keeping the groups small; so that you can get to know each and every one of your fellow travellers. Group sizes vary between trips, but generally you can expect to travel with 12 other solos.

Recently, Solo Travellers Group Holidays won the Bronze Award at the British Travel Awards in the Best Singles Company Small category and pride themselves on catering specifically for solo travellers. We would love for you to join our friendly community on one the many amazing adventures we offer and experience a new destination with lots of laughter and new friends.
