Our solo traveller collection

More than a fifth of our customers travel on solo holidays and for a variety of reasons. Some want to meet new people, whereas some want to travel with a friend but prefer their own room. Some simply want some much-needed ‘me’ time. Whatever your reason for travel, you’ll find nothing is too much trouble on our singles holidays in the UK and overseas.

*For periods when there is no single supplement to pay, hotels have given us a set number of rooms; once these have been booked we may still be able to offer single rooms but there will probably be a supplement to pay. Therefore, it's always best to book early to be in with the best chance of securing a room at no extra cost. Please call for details.

Introducing...

Tremaine Moore, our expert Holiday Creator, knows all about our holidays for solo travellers...

Tremaine Moore

I have worked for Saga for nearly 20 years, and for most of that time I have been involved with organising holidays for solo travellers. We have an excellent range of holidays, including our worldwide tours, which are the perfect way to explore a region, without having to compromise.
I know there are so many reasons why someone might travel alone - you might have a partner who simple doesn't share your interests, or maybe you value the independence travelling alone gives you.
Of course, you might even be coming along for the wonderfully social ambience where you can meet new, like-minded friends.
For some people, travelling on their own can be daunting, but all our customers are assured a warm welcome and a friendly atmosphere. We have some of the best staff in the travel industry, all trained and experienced in promoting a sociable feel to the holiday.
There are plenty of opportunities for you to get to know your fellow guests and there are lots of included and optional excursions plus activities for you to join in with, if you choose.

Why go solo with Saga?

A world of choice – Whether you want to relax at a hotel, explore on a fascinating escorted tour, sail along Europe’s famous waterways or take a cruise on the ocean, our wide selection of holidays for single travellers means we’re sure to have a getaway to suit you. We visit a variety of destinations, from Spain to Sri Lanka, as well as locations in the UK. Wherever you want to go – we can take you there, from city breaks to beach holidays

Fantastic value – Our holidays and cruises provide incredible value for money because we include so much in the price, with no hidden extras.

Be as sociable or as independent as you wish – Our thoroughly trained Solo Hosts, Tour Leaders and Cruise Teams will be on hand throughout your holiday to introduce you to your fellow Saga guests. They will also help create a friendly and sociable atmosphere – unless you’d rather be left to your own devices, in which case they’ll just fade into the background.

We’ll take care of everything – We know that travelling solo can be daunting, which is why we aim to make your holiday hassle-free. We’ll take care of the little details, from return travel, to visas (if required), leaving you to simply make the most of your singles holiday for over 50s.

Award-winning experience – We have over 65 years’ experience, and fine-tune our solo holidays and cruises based on the feedback we receive from our customers to ensure they meets our high standards. This has made us one of the stand out travel companies for quality.

Your home away from home - We provide as many single rooms at no extra cost as possible, on as many hotel stays and tours as we can*. Our river cruises have hundreds of single cabins at no extra cost. With a wide selection of single cabins, even single suites, on our ocean cruises you don't have to compromise on your private accommodation either.

Plus, on our Ocean Cruises - We start your holiday in style by hosting an exclusive 'singles' cocktail party early on in the cruise. We also arrange informal gatherings before each port of call on your cruise. Perfect if you're looking to meet up with others when going ashore. And, if you've booked a shore excursion, and find that you know someone else who's also going, just tell us. We'll make sure you're on the same bus so you can travel together.

All our holidays are financially protected and include ATOL protection. If you have any questions about what’s included, contact us and speak to one of our friendly advisors.
