Met all my expectations, and I had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The tour manager, Gary, was the best I have come across - very hard working, making sure everyone in the group was getting what they wanted from the holiday. The hotel was very well appointed, comfortable and clean, and the food was very good.

The holiday was overall very good, the rep was exceptionally good. The hotel had ok entertainment in the evenings but nothing exceptional.
The only problem I found was the male members of the holiday 70% were there to pull, which can spoil a holiday, No in my book means No. So the easiest option was to retire early in the evenings.

30 years ago I went on my first Solos holiday to Corfu and the next year St Lucia where to my surprise Norman Wisdom was one of our group. Enjoyed these holidays so much and made friends for life, one of which I am married to today. Now my son is going on his first Solos holiday in June.

Stride Review

Founded in 1982 in UK, Solos is the first travel company to focus on the singles community. They have 30 years of experience in crafting trips geared toward solo travelers vacation trips that are built according to the interest of a solo traveler

Who is Solos Best Suited For?

Solos provide trips for single travelers of all ages with all budget types. It’s important to note that single doesn’t necessarily mean romantically single. While this may be a large segment of the travelers you encounter on a Solos trip, it is by no means the only type. Some may just prefer the experience of traveling alone, but Solos allows for a nice balance, providing the company of fellow travel enthusiasts who also are traveling by themselves.

What Makes Them Stand Out?

Solos have range of holiday types to choose from, including cruises, walking tours and trips that focuses on specific activities such as skiing or golf. Travelers also have the option to search trips by age range. Solos also maintains a very strong community aspect, encouraging travelers to feel a part of something exclusive and special.  

Where Do They Operate?

Solos is the first specialist to focus on the needs of the single traveler. They currently offer trips in Asia, Europe, Central America & the Caribbean.

How Does it Work?

Solos offers several different trip types, as detailed above. They also have something called “Club Solos” an exclusive group of specially selected hotels, only available to Solos guests. This means that you can customize the amount of privacy you want, but are never more than a few steps away from a fellow Solos traveler. They have a comprehensive forum on their site where you can meet other travelers and ask questions, and introduce yourself to the community.

Why Travel With Them?

If you prefer exploring and discovering places around the world solo, yet not completely alone, Solos is the perfect option. They cater to multiple budgets and offer many ways to meet other solo travelers through mixers and activities. Traveling alone can be a very rewarding experience, and Solos augments this experience by helping you meet like-minded travelers. It’s a great opportunity to make connections and new friends, while seeing the world!

From Solos

Solos has over 30 years experience in the Solo traveller market; we have the widest choice of holidays for the single traveller including Sun, City Breaks, Activities and Discovery escorted tours.

Our variety of Dance Weekends and Black Tie Balls are second to none and we are the only single traveller specialist to offer Walks and Treks, Tennis, Golf and Ski holidays.

You will always have your own room and are free to join our groups or go your own way as you please - it's your holiday! In 2015 we introduced our 'ClubSolos' range of exclusive Solos -only hotels.  Exclusive to us - exclusively yours!

Solos was formed in 1982 specifically to meet the needs of the single traveller - we are the first holiday company to specialise in this way. Since that time, we've stayed true to our roots and our expertise has been recognised by an ever-growing and loyal community of customers. We are still the UK's number one singles holiday company.

Quality and choice

As you would expect after 30 years of operations, we've created a unique combination of quality and choice for the single traveller. We can offer something for all tastes and budgets, whatever type of holiday you're after, whatever your preferred destination

ClubSolos

Because Solos has been offering holidays to single travellers for longer than any other tour operator, we understand exactly what our customers are looking for in a holiday! This is why we have selected a number of exclusive hotels where you can enjoy a relaxing and fun atmosphere - as private as you might want but as near to all the attractions, sights and local hospitality as you might want! And, because they're exclusive to us, that means you'll not be sharing the facilities with anybody other than fellow Solos guests.

Over the years we've listened to our customers and gained specialised knowledge of our destinations. We can show you the best places to go and can give great advice, based on our unrivalled experience, to help you have unforgettable holidays

Our Price Promise

As a matter of policy, we never penalise our early bookers.  Unlike most other travel companies, whenever we negotiate lower prices from our suppliers, we'll pass the savings to every customer in the group regardless of when they booked.

Also, by booking early you'll be guaranteed the lowest prices.  Many airline prices rise over the season and if we are forced to increase our prices after you've confirmed your booking with us, your holiday cost is confirmed at the lower price.

If prices fall after you've booked, you'll automatically be given the lower price.

Solos isn't just another holiday company.

Solos is a travel community and we fondly welcome new members to enjoy the experiences of travelling with us. Over half of our customers are regular travellers - the service we offer personal yet unobtrusive. Group sizes do vary but you will be holidaying with other single travellers who share a passion for life and discovering new and exciting destinations in the UK, Europe and around the world.

Solos’ cruises offer a world of possibilities; from the exotic shorelines of the Caribbean, to the historic ports of the Mediterranean and the elegance of the Baltic capitals.

We are delighted to feature six programmes on the Magellan, the latest addition and flagship of the Cruise & Maritime Voyages fleet, offering exceptional value and an intimate and leisurely style of cruising.

Cruising The World Over

Our Norwegian Cruise Line sailings continue to be popular and all NCL cruises feature the exclusive Studio Lounge to which you have access after booking your Studio Stateroom, a cabin type specifically designed for single travellers. The Studio Lounge is a shared private lounge where you can meet your fellow single travellers, have coffee or make plans for the day. We are also delighted to include the Royal Caribbean International wintersun cruise to Dubai as well as two cruises with Fred. Olsen which are proving to be very popular.

1. Choose one of our fabulous Solos cruise group departures and join fellow independent cruisers to share the experience.

NB: Please note that regardless of group sizes our cruise departures will still operate.

2. If you do not wish to cruise in a Solos group, wish to go on a different date to the ones published or on a different itinerary or ship we are happy to try and arrange a tailor-made cruise just for you. We work closely with many of the major cruise companies and have access to a huge range of itineraries.
