If the thought of going on holiday by yourself is daunting or you are thinking about booking a singles holiday for the first time? Let us reassure you before you take the plunge and enter the world of solo travel.
For many, going on holiday by yourself is quite a big step to take but you're not alone as there are millions of like-minded individuals out there who every year opt for singles holidays. There are so many different reasons for deciding to choose a solo break so whether you are single or a couple who simply wish to encounter different experiences on holiday, you will find that solo travelling is the ideal solution.

Age isn't an issue either on singles holidays because a wide variety of people from all walks of life tend to join these tours whether they are young or old. Another advantage is that you will be allocated your own room and in some cases will avoid having to pay a single supplement fee.
