    Although I haven't used them myself a good friend, who has, tells me that Just You is good for people wishing to travel alone. They may not be the cheapest but don't sell themselves so much as holidays for singles, rather as holidays for travellers choosing to travel alone (who might happen to be single!)

    Hi everyone, watched this with interest considering a similar type of holiday myself, I also sell holidays, and recently had some training re 'specialist travel' from several companies who specialise in holidays for people with disabilities. I also came across a fantastic company who attract single passengers to be the eyes for blind passengers.... amazing deals for these people. It sounds so great, a group of people who travel all over the world as a group, and literally are a buddy to a blind person.... explain what they are looking at and help a little along the way. In no way are these people carers, and your buddy changes daily or more/less as you choose. Apparently they have such fun they aften get adders on in the bar etc!

    Anyway if anyone is interested in more info then message me and i'll be happy to help. I must add i am no way involved with this company so hope this doesn't come across wrong I work for a large company who is fully abta covered so no risk to monies when you book direct Karen x

    I would also highly recommend EXPLORE. Have been 11 times with them all over the world. Loved each one. Had some great fun and met some lovely people. Am planning my next trip very soon.

    I've had two holidays (on my own) with Pueblo Ingles in Spain (Google them) and had a great time both times. This company offers free board and lodging to native English speaking people from all over the world in return for spending the week speaking to Spanish executives, doctors, teachers etc. I went to the one north of Madrid, high in the mountains. Food was excellent, company was amazing- people from all over the world and the week was great fun. I would recommend it highly for singles of all ages.


    I went on something similar with Vaughntown - it was a really fantastic week and so rewarding. I've recommended it to so many people.

    Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry. But by demonstrating that all people cry, laugh, eat, worry and die, it introduces the idea that if we try to understand each other, we may even become friends.

    Well, I've been brave an applied to Pueblo Ingles though it's quite soon (30th July) so it may well be full up by now. I'm quite excited about doing this as it seems like a great combination of good company, some structure and low cost! Let's see how I get on.

    Thanks again for the recommendation saoirse.

    I have travelled a lot with Voyages Jules Verne. Some of their holidays offer no single supplement but you need to book early because they are popular. The groups have always been very friendly and I have never felt like a spare part as a single.
    Sometimes they do holiday departures specifically for singles. One mixed group I was in stayed at the same hotel as one of the singles groups and they seemed to be having a great time and getting on very well, despite, or perhaps because of, being a very diverse group in terms of age.

    My biggest issue is holidaying alone with the kids, I can find plenty to do myself but it's quite lonely as a one parent family. I've just booked my 5th trip with http://www.SingleWithKids.co.uk and looking at more. They're really well priced and have everything from cheap camping weekends through to overseas holidays, we're off to the Italian Lakes soon and can't wait. The group size is usually around 20-40 people including children and the kids get on famously, I think my little one would be bored just holidaying with dad now!

    I haven't tried any of the adults only singles holidays as they all looked quite pricey when I first had a google.

  • Hello there

    It's great that there is a lot more happening for people needing to holiday alone.

    If like me you would like a even more specialist holiday that enables you to meet other single people sharing your faith you could look at NETWORK CHRISTIANS. I've always enjoyed their breaks. They are well organised. Hosts are ready to greet you and introduce you to others and lead all the tours etc. It's a relaxed atmosphere and a great way to meet people that you have lots in common with.

    See NETWORK CHRISTIANS on google.

    Happy Holidays! Sue:A
