What we're about

We are extending Solo Travellers Group Holidays to other parts of the UK as we've had lots of requests from meetup members to join our trips from outside of London. We’ve been organising Solo Travellers group trips via meetup for people who love to travel since April 2011. We have created a community of like-minded individuals who want to travel the world with small groups, share travel experiences, and make new friends. We have the experience and expertise of arranging lots of amazing trips. We offer all sorts of solos holidays, both in Europe to Norway, Iceland, Bulgaria, Morocco and to more further afield destinations, such as Myanmar, Cuba, Vietnam, Cambodia, Colombia, Jordan, Armenia and Georgia and Uzbekistan, just to name a few. All our trips are pre-organised by us, to make everything as easy as possible for you and of course your money is safe as we hold both TTA and ATOL cover. Take a look at some our past trips and amazing photos https://www.meetup.com/solo-travellers/ . Join up and we will keep posted of all our exciting trips!
