Fantastic value

Our over 50s and 60s singles 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 thoroughly-trained Solo Hosts, Tour Managers and Cruise Teams will be on hand throughout your singles holiday to introduce you to your fellow guests.. They'll help create a friendly and sociable atmosphere – and if you'd rather be left to your own devices, you're free to do so!

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 specially-curated Saga singles holiday.

Award-winning experience

We have over 65 years’ experience of fine-tuning holidays for solo travellers and groups alike. We carefully consider feedback that we receive from our customers to ensure our tours always 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 Saga singles and solo holidays?

More than a fifth of our customers choose to travel alone. So we’ve designed this collection specifically for people who want to do this.

These holidays all include a solo host or tour manager. They’ll be on hand to help you meet other travellers, choose excursions and make the most of our little extras – like a meet-and-greet service at the airport, fast-track security and airport lounges.

How many people will be travelling in my group?

We never have more than 30 guests on our solo holidays. So you’ll be able to enjoy the intimate camaraderie of a smaller group, and never get lost in the crowd.

Will I have my own room?

Yes – we guarantee you’ll have a room or cabin of your own when you book a Saga singles holiday.

Can I take a singles holiday with a friend?

Of course – the more the merrier. You and a friend can book together on the same solo holiday or cruise. You’ll still get separate rooms or cabins.

What happens at the airport?

For singles holidays departing from Gatwick, Heathrow or Manchester airports, one of our people will meet you at the check-in desk. We also include a fast-track security pass to help you beat the queues and get through to departures quickly. And you get access to an airport lounge – so you can wait for boarding in comfort, with free food and drinks.

When will I meet the solo host or tour manager?

For international flights, the solo host or tour manager will meet you in arrivals after you’ve picked up your luggage. They’ll introduce themselves and show you where to go for your transfer. For river cruises, your host will meet you when you arrive at the ship.

Will I be eating on my own?

It’s entirely up to you. We know that meals can be daunting when travelling alone – especially if you’re doing it for the first time. To make things easier, we reserve a space in the restaurants we go to. So your group can dine together if you want.

Will I get time to myself?

Absolutely. We design our solo and singles holidays to be as flexible as possible. So you can decide whether to explore independently or as part of the group. It’s your holiday and we want you to make it your own.
