Hi, can anyone recommend a holiday company specialising in holidays for solo travellers? My late husband and I had so many wonderful holidays but he passed away last year. Now I’m feeling up to perhaps trying a solo trip. Most of the companies I’ve looked at are very expensive. Judging by the photos and videos, some seem to cater more for folk in late 70s and 80s. I’m mid 60s and would prefer a more mixed age range. My friend recommended a couple but one in particular had poor reviews. I’m thinking of Europe, not long haul, probably autumn, a week or so..
thanks in advance for recommendations!

Aggy I’ve just booked a Baltic cruise via They offer no supplements for solo cruisers. You can arrange to meet with other solos if you wish.

I can recommend Riviera Holidays, and although not specialising in single travellers, quite often there have been some on the tours that we have done. We have always found the group to be friendly and mixed ages. Good luck with your endeavours.

i recommend joining Widowed And Young (WAYUP for those over 50) - an online support group for Widows.
As part of that, one of the members is a travel agent and arranges fabulous holidays where everyone is solo, no explaining to do, everyone just understands….

I would heartily recommend. I did Budapest, just as an example.

Hi, the company Solos do mixed groups but they are quite expensive, I went to Jersey with them once.
