The average age of guests on any of our solo holidays tends to be between 35 and 65, though we accept people from 25 onwards with no upper limit. Although we don’t have trips that are singles holidays exclusively for over 50s, we believe that anybody looking for a trip that’s perfect for their age will find one with us. Our groups are welcoming, friendly, and you’ll always be able to find something to do, whether it’s the organised activity or not.

Just because you’re not with people of exactly the same age, it doesn’t mean you won’t be part of a group of like-minded individuals. By choosing one of our holidays and electing to travel on your own, you are already putting yourself in a group of people with a very definite shared interest, and that is the perfect way to form a new friendship. If you are worried that you won’t enjoy the company, why not try out one of our single night trips? It’s a great way for you to come along and mingle with a mix of people, as these trips are popular with first-timers and old-hands alike. You’ll also have a delicious meal, a night in a lovely hotel and, if you feel like it, a dance!

Or you could try one of our UK breaks or dinner dances. These trips are closer to home and usually take place over a weekend so you get more of a taste of what Friendship Travel singles holidays are like, and can find out why we think travelling with a mixed age group is much more fun than singles holidays for over 50s or holidays for singles over 40. The feedback we get from all our guests tells us that, even if they were sceptical before hand, people find our mixed groups much more fun than they’ve found age-specific holidays.

Of course, given that most of our guests are between 35 and 65 anyway, there will be plenty of other over 50s with you during a holiday with us, so you get the best of both worlds: there are plenty of people your age to spend the holiday with and you might even discover that some of the younger people are great company as well. We also find that more of our travellers are women than men, though we do aim to have a balance of sexes on each trip.

If the age of other travellers is of concern to you, then you can call our office for more details about the trip you’re interested in. This will also give you the chance to talk to one of our representatives about the holiday itself and, because we make sure that somebody from the team has visited every destination, hotel and resort that we take you to, you can be guaranteed that you’re speaking to an expert on the trip, who can give you clear, personal advice.

Should you want to talk to other travellers and find out for yourself how many people on your singles holidays are over 50, then simply head over to our forum and ask. You can also start talking to people heading on the holiday with you and get to know the people you’ll be meeting on the trip. It’s a great way to start bonding early, and you might even get a few useful tips or pieces of advice from the people there.

Finally, when deciding between singles holidays for over 50s or one of our mixed ranged packages, remember that Friendship Travel will help you with every step of your booking and on every trip your group will be accompanied by one of our Friendship Hosts, whose job it will be break the ice, keep you entertained and offer plenty of advice  – another reason we think are holidays are great for everyone!
