Holidaying Alone

Although it's now June, many of us will not have booked a holiday yet this year but are thinking now seriously thinking about it. For those who will be going alone there may be different considerations, so take a look at the 'Guide to Holidaying Alone' for some ideas and some things to think about.

On the front page, there are some general thoughts about holidaying alone and an interesting statistic about how many people do actually go on holiday by themselves.

The next page is about Travelling with a Group. Many people who holiday on their own like to go with a group for the company and the opportunity to meet people and socialise. The page has links to several companies who specialise in organising group holidays.

The next page of the Guide is for people who might want something a bit more adventurous. There is information about and links to organisations that offer holidays that are a bit more active and exciting such as white water rafting, sky diving and canyoning.

Holidays for Single Travellers links

If you truly want to holiday alone, or perhaps just travel with one other person, look at our page on Travelling Solo (or almost). It gives some general advice and also tells you about companies who will help you with your arrangements and/or put you in touch with potential travelling companions.

If you are travelling alone there are different things to think about, as we said earlier, so read our Tips page so that you can be pretty sure that you have covered all the angles before you make your holiday decision.

The final page of the Guide looks at some of the days out that you can take on your own. Before we go on holidays to far-flung places perhaps we should explore our local environment, so we provide some thoughts about how we might do this on our own.

Organising a holiday can be hard work for anyone, whether we are going with other people or on our own. If you are one of the latter, we hope that the Guide will make the planning process a bit easier and more effective.

Also, take a look at all the other guides in our series packed full of useful information.
