Why Solos?

Solos was formed in 1982 specifically to meet the needs of the single traveler - we were the first vacation 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 guests. We remain the UK's number one singles vacation company and have been voted by consumers as Best Singles Specialist Tour Operator in the British Travel Awards every year since 2011.

We are aware of our responsibilities to the solos traveler and will always strive to obtain the best possible deal - this means we will never charge a single supplement

Solos isn’t just another vacation company. Solos is a community, and we fondly welcome new guests to enjoy the experience of traveling with us. We know that our success is very much down to our guests and that’s the ethos upon which our business has grown over the last 30 years. Indeed, over three-quarters of our guests are regular Solos travelers, and this is by no means something that we take for granted. The service we offer is personal, yet unobtrusive - group sizes do vary but you will be with other single travelers who share a passion for life, a desire to embrace new experiences and who enjoy discovering exciting destinations.

Solos Vacations Tour Leaders

Each of our trips is accompanied by one of our hand-picked Tour Leaders, many of whom began their journey with Solos as guests, giving them a first-hand understanding of the requirement when accompanying our groups.
The Solos Tour Leader is like no other - not just a representative but a companion who travels with the group, from the very start of your singles vacation to the time when you wave goodbye to your new-found friends at the end of your Solos experience.
They have a multifaceted, responsible role and work diligently behind the scenes to ensure everything goes smoothly, whilst blending in with the group to ensure everybody is happy and getting the most from their singles vacation. It’s worth noting that on evenings where meals are not included, you don’t have to dine alone as your Tour Leader will make suggestions of places for the group to eat together if they wish.
Solos Vacations Tour Leaders are a special group of people and we’re extremely proud of each and every one of them, believing them to be the best in the business. They are so much more than merely organisers with clipboards who make sure you know where the lounge bar is, what time to meet for dinner, and to make sure you are on time for your flight home (although they do all of that too!) Your Solos Tour Leader is there to add that magic ingredient of fun, laughter, companionship and fabulous memories to your vacation.

Tour Leader Quote:

“To potential travelers, I would say that there is something for everyone in every Solos vacation.... perhaps it is just company in the evening or organised excursions, or exploring the corners of foreign countries. Wherever your interest lies, the programme is there to join as you like. Within the group, you will always find a kindred spirit and quite likely make a friend for life.”
