Fantastic value

Our over 50s and 60s solo holidays and cruises provide incredible value for money because we include so much in the price, with no hidden extras. Our holidays feature an exclusive Meet & Greet service at Gatwick, Manchester and Heathrow, as well as fast-track security and an airport lounge.

Be as sociable or as independent as you wish

Our thouroughly trained Solo Hosts, Tour Managers and Cruise Teams will be on hand throughout your singles holiday to introduce you to your fellow guests.. They will 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) and solo holidays tours, leaving you to simply make the most of your Saga singles holiday.

Award-winning experience

We have over 65 years’ experience, and fine-tune our solo traveller holidays and cruises based on the feedback we receive from our customers to ensure they meet our high standards. This has made us one of the stand out travel companies for quality, particularly when it comes to holidays for single travellers over 50.

Your home away from home

We provide as many sole occupancy rooms at no extra cost as possible, on as many hotel stays and tours as we can*. With a wide selection of single cabins, even single suites, on ocean cruises aboard our very own boutique ships, you don't have to compromise on your private accomodation 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.

Peace of mind

All our over 50s singles holidays are financially protected and include ATOL protection. If you have any questions about what’s included, or simply want to know more about Saga singles holidays, then don't hesitate to contact us and speak to one of our friendly advisors.

*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 sole occupancy 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.

What are Solo Holidays with Saga?

More than a fifth of our customers travel solo, so we have created a bespoke collection of holidays designed specifically for single travellers. These holidays include a dedicated Solo Host or Tour Manager, who promotes a sociable atmosphere, an exclusive package of excursions, and little extras such as a Meet & Greet service at the airport, fast-track security and airport lounges.

How many people will I be travelling with in my group?

Group sizes on our Solo Holidays are under 30 guests, so you'll be able to enjoy the intimate camaraderie of a smaller group, and not just become a face in the crowd.

Will I have a guaranteed solo room?

For all our Solo Holidays you are guaranteed to have a room or cabin on your own.

What if I want to travel on a Solo Holiday with a friend?

We do accept multiple people on one booking, so you and a friend can book together on the same tour or cruise and will be in separate rooms or cabins.

Is there an additional single supplement?

No, on all our Solos Holidays you will not have to pay any additional single room supplements.

What happens at the airport?

For holidays departing from Gatwick, Heathrow or Manchester airports you will be met by a Saga Representative at the check-in desk. We include a fast-track security pass, so you can beat the queues and get through to departures quickly. We also include access to airport lounges so you can relax in a quieter area of the airport enjoying complimentary food and drinks.

When will I meet the Tour Manager or Solo Host?

For international flights, the Tour Manager or Solo Host will meet you in the arrival area once you have picked up your luggage. From here they will introduce themselves and direct you to your transfer. For river cruises your Solo Host will meet you once you have arrived at the ship.

Will I have to dine on my own?

It is up to you. We encourage socialising on these holidays and appreciate that meals can be daunting when travelling alone, especially for a first time. This is why on every solo holiday we arrange for a reserved space within the restaurant so that the whole group can dine together if they want to.

Will there be time for myself?

Yes, we design our Solo Holidays to be as flexible as possible, so it’s your choice if you want to explore independently or as part of the group. This is your holiday and we want you to make it your own.
