Holiday for one – Our Top Ten Travel TipsGroup of single travellers raising their glasses

1. Get to know your fellow travellers

Get in touch with those on the same flight so you do not have to travel alone. We always offer to put you in touch with other Flavours guests who are on your flight so you can arrange to meet for a coffee at the airport.

2. Enjoy doing something for yourself.

Being selfish doesn’t always come easily to most people who have spent many years looking after others. Sometimes it is really necessary to do things for you and you alone. Always wanted to travel to Italy, or to learn new skills? A single holiday is a great gift to indulge in an activity you have always dreamed of being able to do.

3. Ensure you are travelling with a reputable firm.

Flavours holidays are ATOL protected so our guests can have financial security and peace of mind. This means that you can relax and enjoy your solo holiday to the full!

4. Keep a diary.

You will be surprised at what time away from everything familiar will do for you. There’s nothing like a spot of solo travel to broaden the mind and blow away the cobwebs! It also allows you to take note of all that you learn, for recipes and names of places you visit.

5. Make time for yourself

Enjoy the opportunities solo travel presents – revel in the freedom to enjoy yourself and do exactly as you please!
