Travel solo but not alone

Unlock a world of unforgettable experiences with Newmarket Holidays' tailored collection for over 50s solo holidays. 

Entering the 'over 50' bracket shouldn't signify the end of exploration; rather, it's an exciting time to embrace solo travel tours, granting you the freedom to create your dream holiday. With the comfort of organised tours and a welcoming community of like-minded travellers, our over-50s holidays offer an affordable, stress-free gateway to discovery. 

From the azure waters of the Mediterranean, the breath-taking fjords of Scandinavia, to the awe-inspiring landscapes of African safaris, we have a destination for every desire. With no fear of language barriers, transportation worries, or itinerary planning, you can truly enjoy the golden age of travel. Solo travellers can enjoy one of our tours designed exclusively for those travelling alone, or alternatively book onto a 'no single supplement' departure on our worldwide range of escorted tours.
