We love solo travel, from epic adventures meeting like-minded travellers and trying new things to wellness escapes that give you time to think and breathe. Imagine sharing safari stories around the camp fire after watching big cats roam the savannah; practicing yoga on the beach with just the sound of the waves for company; or toasting ‘sail away’ with new friends as your ship sets sail for remote islands.
At Kuoni, we believe no two holidays should be the same. Solo travel is no different. We’re experts in creating flexible tailor-made singles holidays, so you can choose exactly what you want to do and talk it through with someone who has been there.
Travelling solo doesn’t need to mean travelling alone. On our small group tours you can share the adventure with a local tour leader and like-minded people, and sharing the cost of trips and travel with a group means it’s often more affordable, too. A cruise is a great option for single travellers, as you can dine with other passengers and have plenty of pre-organised activities to fill your days. Even on a beach holiday you’ll be surprised at how many more people you meet when you travel independently.
Our top solo travel ideas include India tours, Kenya safaris and Caribbean cruises, but you can go solo on any of our holidays. Our Personal Travel Experts will listen to your travel ideas, recommend the best hotels and experiences, and take all the hard work out of planning an incredible solo traveller holiday.
Talk to us and we’ll listen. Tell us your travel ideas and we’ll share our first-hand insight and recommendations. Many of our Personal Travel Experts have travelled independently so you can ask us which resorts have a great kids’ club and are single-parent friendly, where you can find hotels that hold solo traveller retreats, or what to pack for the evenings on your Caribbean cruise.
Every stage of your holiday is planned by us, from travelling the world and hand picking the finest hotels to making sure we have the best tour guides, teams abroad and knowledgeable travel experts in Kuoni stores across the UK.
Our small group tours offer pre-organised, affordable, sociable and secure holidays for solo travellers. On any of our standard departures you’ll have your own room throughout at a small supplement and some of our tours have no single supplement on selected dates. We don’t pair solo travellers together, so there’s a balance of having some privacy and the opportunity to socialise as much as you want to. Plus, you’ll have a friendly local tour leader to answer any questions.
Cruises are great for solo travellers, offering a safe environment where you can easily meet new people and visit lots of new destinations without having to worry about how or when you need to get there. Ships are focusing more and more on solo travellers, with social events alongside group dining and excursions. Cruising is a really affordable way of travelling solo, too, as many cruise lines include all your meals, entertainment and some shore excursions.
There’s no better ‘me time’ than a wellness holiday. Solo travel is often the norm on a spa break and there are plenty of therapeutic activities designed to fill your time on holiday. We’ve partnered with Wellbeing Escapes, the UK’s largest and most established specialist spa and wellness holiday company, to offer mindfulness retreats, specialist programmes focusing on issues such as stress-management, and complete health reboots.
