Holidays for solo travellers

Going solo? No problem. Most of our tours are made up of a mixture of people – single travellers, couples and friends who want to see the world together. We welcome everyone onto our tours, no matter what your situation and there’s a good chance you’ll leave with new friends. In fact, a large proportion of our tour guests are solo travellers. We look after everything, so all you need to do is get packing! 

First time travelling alone?

If this is your first solo travel experience, then you don’t have to see it as being alone. Globus invites you to share your experience with a like-minded group and you can join in with the group as much (or as little) as you’d like. If you’re worried about safety, then an escorted tour could be the best option as you’ll have the reassurance of our expert Tour Directors and Local Guides (and the rest of the group) to look out for you. We do the hard work, so you can relax and enjoy the sights - stress free.   

What about single supplements?

Single supplements are applicable when booking a Globus escorted tour. We all need our own space and by paying a single supplement, you have the guarantee of your own room at the end of each day. We won’t make you share with someone you don’t know! 

From time to time, we have special offers, so look out for these and as not all solo traveller deals are available our website, we suggest calling 0330 0165 644 for more details.

Escapes by Globus

Have you heard about Escapes by Globus? We have several single rooms where the single supplement is waived (capacity is limited and you must call for availability).

The benefits of solo travel with Globus


    With Globus, you never have to worry about getting to the ferry on time, buying tickets for the train, or waiting in long lines to take the cable car. Just sit back and enjoy the ride! When it comes to hotels, we hand pick the best guestrooms, service, and food for the money, so you can rest easy knowing we've checked everything out before you check in.

    Local Guides

    At the heart of every great Globus tour are the friendly, knowledgeable folks who show you around and help you maximise your free time. We go to incredible lengths to find the most professional Tour Directors and Local Guides, who you can rely on to show you places off the beaten track. Go where the locals go; do what the locals do. 


    Our Local Guides and Tour Directors know the destinations like the back of their hand. They know where to avoid and how to enjoy your holiday without things going wrong. They’ll help with anything you don’t understand, even assist with a purchase at the local market!  

    Save money

    We pack in convenient hotels, essential transportation, the must-see attractions, and some meals into one affordable package, saving you up to 40% compared to purchasing all of these components on your own. 

    You time

    No one enjoys a holiday where every second is spent on a schedule. We build free time into every Globus tour, so you can eat, shop, and explore the way you want. Your Tour Director can offer suggestions for things to see and do—or you can join one of our many outstanding optional excursions.

    Go App

    Our free GlobusGO mobile app puts the world at your fingertips. Log in to check flight, hotel, and airport transfer information, and review your itinerary up to 45 days prior to your holiday. While travelling, get entertainment, sightseeing, dining, and shopping suggestions for most destinations. With built-in GPS navigation, you’ll have the direction you need.
