Fed up trying to find a solo holiday without surcharges for single rooms? Ever want to go on holiday to meet, or make, new friends?
Everyone who has ever travelled solo know the pain of bitterly paying out extra due to the “hefty single supplement”. It feels as though you are being discriminated against because of your lack of a willing accomplice.
Yet, you know that, in all honestly, people sharing is cheaper and more profitable for hotels. But just because you’re travelling alone doesn’t mean that it can’t be a once in a lifetime experience.
We’ve got hundreds of spaces available for the solo traveller with a multitude of themes and activities. Walking tours! Cooking in Tuscany! The far-east adventure! America for solos!
But just because you’re grouped together, doesn’t mean you can’t also utilise your spare time for much needed “you-time”. So, it’s the best of both worlds! Make new friends, learn news skills, have fun and relax, all without that pesky single supplement!
Why wait? Book your “Just You” holiday today!

The Land of Smiles has so much to offer, lush jungles, famed beaches, a rich cultural history and incredible food.
Thailand suits all budgets with basic guest houses starting at just £10 per night ranging to the most luxurious of retreats.
Getting out and about is easy with the unique experience of a Tuk Tuk. You’ll find these on nearly every street corner. Why not sample some street food for just a few pennies.
Top things to do in Thailand
With so many things to take your pick from, it’s hard to narrow down what exactly to do, so I’ve taken some top ideas from recent visitors to Thailand which I hope gives you a brief overview of this special country.
Enjoy a short stay in Bangkok
Yes you’ve guessed it - Bangkok is famous for its temples. The Grand Palace and Wat Prakaew have been home to Thai Kings and the Royal Court for over 150 years, walk through the sacred grounds and note the intricate architectural detail. No visit is to Bangkok is complete without the must-see stunning Wat Arun with its towering spires, probably the most photographed silhouette in Southeast Asia.
Don’t miss an early morning visit to the bustling floating markets, small wooden canoes heaped full with fresh vegetable, flowers and fruits.
Relax on a tropical Island
With many to choose from, take your pick of the many tropical islands Thailand has to offer. Perhaps one of the lesser known islands, such as Ko Chang. Located near the border with Cambodia, Ko Chang is the third largest island in Thailand. It is a mountainous island boasting several waterfalls, thriving coral reefs, rainforests and long white sandy beaches.
Kho Tao is also fast becoming a favourite destination for visitors looking for more than just beaches. The island offers scuba diving, rock climbing, and hiking. In fact, some 7000 new divers get certified on Koh Tao each year.
Exploring Chang Mai
Whether you are backpacking or a luxury connoisseur you should include Chang Mai on your itinerary. Famed for its verdant jungle and many temples the area offers visitors the opportunity to do so much – perhaps jungle trekking, a visit to the elephant nature park. A cruise along the Mekong River or even the chance to visit the long neck tribes and hill tribes and of course yet more markets.
Luxury is one of the first words that pops into people’s heads when they think of Dubai. With its iconic sky scrapers and its magnificent range of hotels to choose from, it’s no wonder that it is classed as a top tourist destination and is becoming more and more popular each year.
