What is a singles holiday like?
It’s easier to say what it is not. It is not about matching people up. It is not about doing everything together. It is not a coach tour for 40 people. It is not an 18-30-something club holiday.
A Friendship Travel singles holiday is whatever you want it to be. You can snooze by the pool all afternoon or sightsee till your feet bleed; enjoy intelligent conversation in the bar or bop till you drop in a night club. Between you, your fellow guests and your Friendship host, you decide what sort of holiday you want to enjoy.
What will everyone else be like?
They will be a mix of ages, typically between 25 and 65 though there is no upper age limit. We have guests from all over the UK and Ireland and from all walks of life. We understand that women are particularly wary of travelling alone, and for that reason women sometimes outnumber men on our holidays.
You may not meet your soul mate but, like you, everyone is looking forward to a relaxing time and is happy to meet new people to chat about life, the universe and everything! Our hosts help to break the ice and ensure that no-one is left out.
What sort of holiday should I choose?
First-timers often book a weekend break or dinner dance in the UK as an inexpensive way to ‘test the water’. A European city break – typically a small group – is another good option.
Our fully-hosted hotel holidays in the Med are also a great choice for your first singles holiday, because we take care of absolutely everything, from beginning to end. Long-haul holidays tend to attract well-travelled guests who are happy with the support of our locally-based hosts.
What is the difference between Friendship Travel and other companies?
We have plenty of experience in putting together great holidays for single travellers and, on the rare occasion when things go wrong – such as the volcanic ash disruption in 2010 or yet another strike – we have robust operational procedures.
We visit every destination we feature, so we can share our knowledge with you, honestly. We have a team of Hosts who work for us season after season because they love their job. We are big enough for our air-inclusive package holidays to be ATOL-bonded, so your money is safe. We are small enough to build personal relationships with our guests.
We truly believe we are the most caring and professional singles holiday specialist in the UK: try us!
