Why Choose A Solo Travel Holiday With Travel Department?
We’ve been planning holidays for solo travellers for over 23 years, so it’s safe to say we know what makes a great tour. We’ll do the thinking, the planning and the checking, letting you skip the search for the best routes or accommodation and focus on what really matters, embarking on the trip of a lifetime. Whether you’re interested in taking a River Cruise on the Danube, a trip to the vineyards of South Africa or a beach holiday to Malta, we’ll take care of all the arrangements.
On all of our tours, we include everything at one great price – return flights, guided transfers, and accommodation. We also include local experiences and exciting excursions; from visiting the Great Pyramids of Giza on our Nile River Cruise to taking a scenic train ride through the Swiss Alps on our Lake Como Holiday. Each of our excursions are led by experienced and knowledgeable local guides to give insight, answer questions and make sure we get the most out of each destination we visit.
On each of our Solo Traveller holidays, we’ll be accompanied by a local, expert guide who is ready to help us uncover a wealth of knowledge at our destination. Offering unique insights that aren’t found in a guidebook; our local experts will help enrich our journey and unlock some hidden gems as well as the iconic sights. Our guides will also provide us with tips and recommendations based on individual interests for what to do during any free time.
There's nothing like travel for breaking down barriers and bringing people together. On our group holidays, you can travel solo, but you will never be alone. You’ll travel with a group of like-minded people, sharing wonderful experiences and creating memories that will last forever. At the start of our trip, a ‘welcome’ drink or meal is always included, so you’ll be able to meet people straight away. We’ll also have plenty of leisure time to venture out with our newfound friends to see more incredible sights.
We offer Solo Traveller holidays to some of the world’s best destinations including European favourites Italy and Germany as well as exotic locations like China and India. Whether you’re looking for a City Break to Prague, a getaway to the Algarve Coast or a River Cruise along the Nile, we’re sure to have something that suits your taste. Join us as we explore the jewels of the Kremlin on a trip to Russia or take in the highlights of the Salvador Dali’s artwork on a trip to Barcelona.
A Guided Group Solo Travel Holiday Experience
Don’t worry if you don’t have a travel companion, you aren’t the only one! Our Solo Holidays are created to ensure you have an unforgettable experience in the company of like-minded people. At the start of our guided holiday, a ‘welcome’ drink or meal is always included, so we’ll be able to meet our fellow travellers from the outset. On our Solo Traveller holidays, we’ll see so much more with the help of local, expert guides who will be with us throughout our entire trip. They’ll also offer suggestions and tips based on your interests, so we get the most out of our leisure time. Many of our solo travellers become friends and travel together again on another one of our holidays. So, if you like the idea of a group shared experience and want to explore some of the most incredible places, our Solo Traveller holidays may be the perfect option for you.
