Holiday for One

Holidays for one

Dedicated escapes for solo travellers

Having a companion on holiday is great, but sometimes holidays for one are much more appealing. It can be good to get away from everyone and everything and relax in your own company for a while.

Whether you’re a carefree explorer or you’re looking to challenge yourself by trying something new, we’ve got solo traveller holidays to suit every person. Want to do things yourself? Great. If you’d rather meet people along the way, our guided tour packages might be for you.

We offer all kinds of dedicated holidays for one person, but they do have one thing in common: they all give you some well deserved me time, whether that's by the pool, at the beach or exploring a new city.

But where to start?

Solo traveller holidays: destinations and resorts

From beach getaways to all-inclusive holidays for one, here’s our top pick of destinations and resorts for solo travellers.

Always fancied escaping, alone, to Sri Lanka? Our small and unique eco-hotel, Ulagalla Resort, can be a beautiful slice of serenity for one person. If you don’t want to eat at the restaurant alone every day, you’re in luck: order meals to your chalet so you can bask in the peace and quiet.

Solo traveller holidays to the Caribbean are always a winner, with destinations like Barbados, Bermuda and Bahamas available to you all year round. Beach holidays for single travellers are just as relaxing. Sugar Bay Barbados is an idyllic oceanside escape – unwind on the palm-studded beach as you soak in the sun, relax with a treatment at the Karma Spa and, at the end of the day, kick back in your Ocean Front room for one. Enjoy some winter sun with absolutely no responsibilities. Bliss.

Late Holidays

Caribbean

Picture yourself in a lounger on the beach, moreish rum punch in hand and not a care in the world.  Maybe you’re out exploring Mayan ruins in Mexico, or enjoying a refreshing dip in a private pool? Why not all of it? After all, you’re in charge. 

USA and Canada Luxury for LEss

USA

You won’t run out of things to do here. Whether you’re looking to explore national parks, theme parks or just want to park yourself by a stateside swimming pool for some well-earned R&R, the USA is a playground of delights for the solo traveller. 

Canada holidays

Canada

Holidays to Canada can be as energetic or laid back as you are. Take in some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery, discover a world of excitement in Toronto or Quebec City or hit the slopes for some world-class skiing (with that all-important après-ski, naturellement). With no one holding you back, your time is always well spent.

Indian Ocean

Indian Ocean

Whether you’re looking for a Robinson Crusoe experience with just you and the beach or you want to get busy with safaris, nature reserves, plantations and ancient historical sites, you’ve got it all in this picturesque corner of the world. All you have to do is ask yourself (and only yourself — it’s just you out here) what you’re looking for.

Far East Holidays

Asia and Far East

Whether you’re backpacking your way from place to place or pulling a fully-loaded suitcase to your home-away-from-home luxury hotel, you’ll have everything you need for a diverse and exciting holiday in this region of the world. Step outside into the bustling metropolis of Bangkok, or onto the sandy shores of Bali. Decisions, decisions.

Sociable guided tours for solo travellers

Remember, solo travel doesn’t have to mean travelling alone, so it needn’t be intimidating – with our escorted tours, you’ll meet and travel with like-minded people while discovering some of the world’s best sights, meaning you can leave all your worries at the airport.

From spotting the Big Five on a Kenyan safari adventure, to discovering the rolling rice paddies, lush rainforests and rich culture of Bali, or even ticking the Taj Mahal off your bucket list in India, we have all kinds of guided tours available to make your experience of holidays for one an experience you’ll never forget.

Want to combine a tour with your holiday? You can do that too. The world is your oyster – we just want you to have the solo travelling experience you’ve always dreamed of.

All tours

All tours

There is a whole big, wide world to see out there, and we have a huge array of guided and self-drive tours to help you see the best of it.

Take a look at all the tours we have on offer in some of the most incredible destinations around the world — don't forget your camera!
