Top 5 tips for travelling solo

There’s so much to think about when travelling solo – Just You, the solo travelling specialists, have put together their top five tips for making sure your solo holiday is a success

1. Always travel with a reputable firm

Choose your travel firm wisely. Just like a bottle of wine, not all travel firms are equal! Single traveller specialists, like Just You, create holidays specifically for solo travellers. Which means you’ll be with other like-minded people.

Don’t forget to check for any guarantees, not all companies offer these! Just You have over 20 years of expertise in creating holidays for solo travellers and offer a whole host of fabulous guarantees, from guaranteed departures to financial protection insurance.

2. Choose the right holiday for you

Decisions, decisions! No matter where in the world you want to go or what you want to do once you’re there, there is a holiday for you. You can stay close to home with a break here in the UK, enjoy the stunning history of Europe, or go further afield to Oceania or Asia.

Next, decide if you prefer to relax in one location for your holiday, if you want to explore multiple locations in one go on a touring holiday, or experience the great outdoors for a more active adventure. The choice is all yours.

3. Don’t worry about being alone

A journey is best enjoyed together and when you book a solo touring holiday with Just You you’ll be surrounded by like-minded travellers all in the same boat (or plane, or train..!). There will be plenty of opportunities to get to know your fellow travellers. From the airport (look out for branded luggage tags with Just You), welcome drinks and group dinners, you’ll have plenty of time to mingle with the whole group. And if you’re ever in need of a break, retire to your own room for some time to yourself.

4. Immerse yourself

This is your time to enjoy your incredible adventure, so why not get stuck in? Switch off your mobile phone and truly immerse yourself in your holiday – unless you’re using it to take pictures, of course! On a solo touring holiday, there is always plenty of stunning sights and amazing experiences, so don’t forget to keep your eyes firmly on the action. Maybe write a diary at the end of every action-packed day or go vintage and collect postcards from each destination.

5. Enjoy doing something for yourself and try something new

Travelling independently is liberating. Don’t think of a solo holiday as being selfish; think of it as treating yourself to a well-deserved getaway. Don’t deny yourself your dream holiday, if your friends and family want to travel somewhere different, go it alone, make memories of a lifetime and do something that’s just for you.

If you’re a first-time solo traveller, you’re already trying something new! Enjoy more firsts on your solo adventure. Why not try to learn the lingo or tuck into the local food and drink; with Just You, you’ll have an expert Holiday Director who can introduce you to the best local cuisine and must-try bites – it may just make your holiday!
