Over 50 and tired of travelling solo? Find holiday companions

Sometimes, a holiday can be a wonderful chance to escape alone with your own thoughts, dreams and desires. Other times, there’s nothing better than sharing your experiences with a friend or new acquaintance.

If you’re fed up with travelling solo and you’d like to meet other like minded people, check out some great online resources for finding travelling companions. Get ready to start your next holiday adventure with a new friend in tow.

Finding someone to share your travels with

Lonely is the last way you want to feel on your holiday, and luckily there are plenty of ways to make sure that you don’t have to. Delve into a few great websites that are dedicated to helping you get in touch with the perfect travelling companion and look forward to your next trip.

You could sign up to social networking sites such as Travel Buddies, although you’ll find a much higher proportion of young travellers looking for friends there. Another resource that’s worth a look is Lonely Planet’s Thorn Tree Forum, where you’ll find a wide variety of different individuals posting their holiday plans and looking to see if anyone would like to join them.

A travelling companion can be a wonderful thing but if you’d also love the chance to meet someone who’d like a little more than simple friendship, Silverfriends could help you find your perfect match. Simply fill in a profile for yourself – don’t forget to mention how much you enjoy travelling – and start searching through the many potential new friends and companions already on the site.

Making the most of your holidays

There are some types of holidays that are also particularly good for offering you opportunities to meet new people – perfect if you’re not able to find a suitable companion before you go. Take a look at Solos and also Just You who both specialise in holidays for anyone who wants to travel solo.

Before you set out on your holiday, you’ll also want to make sure you have the best possible over 50s travel insurance in place. Have a look at our guide to finding the right travel insurance and be sure you’re covered no matter where your travels take you.

Enjoy holidays you’ll never forget – find a new friend to share them with you.

Hi everyone. I live in Namibia and hope to find a single lady for friendship and travel buddy. I just returned from Cape Town and realised that one need a friend to travel with. All my friends are married and their families are their priority. I usually end up taking my parents for company. I love sightseeing.

I am a 65 yo male based in Manchester UK. I am looking for a travel companion of any age to join me on a trip to USA next spring/summer. My idea is to fly to the east coast, say Philadelphia then take the Amtrak train right across the country to the west coast then either fly back to the UK or drive / train back to the east coast.
Anyone interested ? Email me at [email protected]

hi, this sounds great, but maybe you've already found someone as we are already in October. I only found this post today. I am German and have lived in England for many years, teaching German, translating for Robert Symes and various other people and companies. I am interested in Archeology as my grandfather was an Archeologist and Medicine professor at Tübingen University. I love traveling and would certainly be interested if this is still a current opportunity. Kindest regards from Freddy

Well that's me finished with this

I certainly don't understand what is going on with the people on it
What is the point signing up , of asking / looking for travel companion. And then don't bother
Lost count of the people I have got in touch with and never had a reply
And those that did (3) gave my e- mail out , two replied one male one female , and then nothing!!!! never to be heard from again. All disappeared into the ether , never heard from the 3 at all
Oh!! Well!!
Good luck to you all

I agree, this site is very difficult to navigate. A great concept but frustrating because of the difficulty with sending and receiving messages. It would be much better if when a message was left, an email was sent alerting you to the fact. I have retrieved messages that are old as I only check sporadically and then when I have written back, I have heard nothing but I tend to assume they have not received the message. It is very difficult to find where to find your messages unfortunately.
On a positive note, I did a trip to Canada and Alaska earlier in the year with a lady who I met through the site. It was a great success, I have met a new friend and hopefully will go away with her again. It's definitely worth hanging in there as there are so many people who want to holiday but don't have anyone to go with.

I am hoping to find a travel parner on this site, willing to consider virtually any destination although Not interested in laying on a beach all day, can do that in Bournemouth.

Self employed so can travel anytime and cost of holiday no problem.

Can offer a free holiday in Bournemouth to see if compatible, if required, before travelling for a longer vacation.

Also interested in a longer holiday somewhere warmer to escape the UK winter.

Hi, I've just joined this site, so all new to me.
I am a young 53 year old woman lives near Brighton who loves her holidays abroad.

I am in full time employment with unlimited holiday restrictions due to the nature of my job.

I like to travel 2/3 times a years, I use to travel with my friends but most of them are now married or getting married or would prefer to go with tier partners. My partner on the other hand is limited to his holiday leave which has left me to find alternative travelling companions. I am looking for a female travelling companion to travel with or as group travel. I am not a big fan of site seeing unless it is something interesting but will do the odd boat trip or days excursion. B I do love shopping around for a good bargain.

I love the Canary Islands due its warm climate and looking at going to Tenerife late September around 14/9/2017 for a 10/ 14 day all inclusive beach relaxing holiday just to unwind from the norm at home.

Travelling companion/s must be willing to pay for their own holiday and expenses etc. Hotel / flight times etc would be joint effort. If interested please contact me.

Hi Maria
I've literally just joined silversurfers website in the hope I will find a friend to share my holidays.
I'm fed up with lonely holidays on my own. When it could be so much more fun sharing the relaxation and fun times experiences.
The website took me on to this comments page. Have to say I'm a little concerned as members are encountering issues communicating to each other.
After I've sent this message I will find and upload my profile information in the hope it will give you a better idea of me.

I'm single. An Importer/Exporter. Although just on the cuff of early retirement. As well as find time for my hobbies. I would like to travel more.

I'm very much like yourself. Very young for my age. And believe life is for living...... Do gym most days. Don't drink or smoke.
I'm also available to do holidays anytime.
Love hot climate hols. Sun worshipper. Preferably child free hols are preferred. I can do the cheaper hols and more 5* hols.
I really, really don't approve of having to pay 'a single supplement' on my holidays. Find its so unfair .

I live in Guildford, Surrey. Normally use Gatwick / Heathrow Airport.

I would appreciate a response if possible.
Confirmation that this website works.

Kind Regards
Serana

Hi Serana

Looking away twice a year. Fly from Gatwick or Heathrow & usually Bristol when travelling to Europe.

Did Spain on my own in July & i'm travelling solo to India in Nov with a tour group.

I like beach holidays and also something a bit more adventurous.
Did Inca Trail Macchu Picchu solo last yr with a tour group.

If you're looking for a beach holiday with no children or a sight seeing holiday next year then let me know.

I'm a very active 51 yr old, divorced, no kids, don't smoke or drink as I cycle a lot.

I have to book off time with work at end of Nov or Dec & then can't change them as colleagues will have then booked theirs & we're limited to number of people off.

Think I've covered everything so if you're interested, could look at next year & cost isn't an issue.

The only issue for me is finding someone to go away with as friends all have partners or have let me down in the past.

I am interested in traveling and have not had a chance to do much since my husband died, I do not have a large amount of funds so would need to travel with someone who can carry the greater load of the expenses. I am a good conversationalist, good friend, attractive and enjoy history and old homes., Am interested in someone who also enjoys traveling but can afford to handle more of the expenses.

Yes it is. I am in Auckland NZ , female, early 60s and managing a small business, I have a partner and it is time for me to take a break from work. I am looking for a female buddy who is compatible and who is happy with their own personnel, family and working life. I missed those outings i had with girlfriends during the college days.
I love to be away for a week or so at this stage and preferably in Australia. I am not adventurous person but I enjoy reading traveling book or watch documentaries, and it gives me the inspiration and motivation general sense. Hope I make sense here.

I know it is a big investment and commitment but I am looking at Feb 2019 with time to plan. Prefer F with similar interests/ background to get the most out of this trip. It is really all about the itinerary!

have recently joined as I am now semi-retiring from my business and looking forward to a holiday or three but not wishing to go alone or pay single supplements. i would like a break in either UK or Europe to really relax, have never been on a cruise and would like a short break one (7 days or so) have been told the Fjords are nice ones. I do smoke but am a considerate smoker and desperate to quit anyway and I enjoy a drink but not a heavy drinker. would love some ideas and feedback from you.

Hi Amanda,
I have booked a cruise for two from Anchorage to Vancouver on August 13 to 20th. My sister was going to go with me but has just started a new job and had to cancel on me. I am looking for someone to take her place. The cruise is with Holland America on the Zaardam in section E with a window. I will be going up a week early to see Denali and some of the other sites.
If you would be interested in either joining me for the cruise, land visits or both, please let me know.
I am new to the site, so not sure what happens next, but hope to hear from you soon.
Thanks,
Kathy

Hi this is my first time on one of these sites so not too sure how it all works but here goes. I need to have some teeth implants and have heard of a very good implantologist in Goa who charges a lot less than the UK and was just wondering if there is anyone else out there in my position. I am hoping to go in October and then again next February or March. I am aiming to go for 3 weeks (only a couple of days spent at dentist) so will have lots of time to holiday.

Hi I am a 64 yr old widow and I want to enjoy the rest of my life, I love to cruise but hate paying the hiked up single supplement. ( not got that much money) I am now seriously looking for a holiday buddy to share the costs. I am a genuine Derbyshire lass living in the north east and be forewarned, I like a drink and a smoke but they are my only vices. message me if you think you could put up with me for the occasional fortnight of cruising. I am partially disabled so walking is a no no because it would cause me a lot of pain and would just want to enjoy a nice relaxing break away. Love the Med etc.

I am 63 - In 2014 I traveled for 90 days alone because I wanted to see parts of the world. My kids thought I was mad so did other relative, but hay ho.
I had just lst my husband and had no one else to go with.
After a month, I was bored but I still had two months to go.
Eating out on my own was not enjoyable plus you end up talking to yourself. Visiting places I found myself going round as quickly as possible.

So this year I am determined not to go alone - I have a desire to go to India. Any one fancy it? I know I can go in a organised holiday group but then you have to go when they book them. So anyone ????

Hi I'm Riccardo, an Italian geologist, 55 years old. I arranged a tour of Namibia little part of South Africa (Kalagadi NP) and Botswana in July in campsites, off the normal routes, with 4x4 and all off-road equipment (toyota hilx 3.0 with 2 roof tents and camping equipment) and I'm looking for two people who, along with me and a colleague 52 yo form the crew.
The crew will be made up of 4 people. The journey time is 16 nights - 17 days, from 6 July to 22, + two flight.
The cost of the tour, including car and equipment rental, almost all dinners and breakfasts, fuel and entry into the parks is 31200 NAD correspondent, to date, around 2156 Euro international flight and Insurance excluded.
If interested, please send me an email and I can reply attaching the travel plan with steps and costs, just to be evaluated. The title is in Italian, but the text is in English.
It is pretty hard and "spartan" tour (prevalent camping + 2 - 3 guesthouse) with even long stays, but I think it's worth it and the cost is not prohibitive considering the number of days spent in Africa.
I thank you anyway for reading.

Hi Everyone, I have been a member of this Site for quite some time but this is my first attempt of using it so please bear with me. I have always wanted to make a trip to Southern India (Kerala/Cochin) I have been unable to persuade any of my buddies that this would be a wonderful experience so I have now decided to see if anyone on this Site is interested!? I would prefer a male companion who is of a similar age to myself. My potential trip would be at the end of 2017 or in early 2018. I would also like to include a one/two night stay on the riverboats. I'm looking fwd to hearing from like minded travel buddies. My intention would also be to stay in basic but comfortable accommodation and not top class hotels!

Hi, I am flying from Bristol to Alicante in Spain on April 24 2017 to stay at my holiday home in Fortuna.
I will be travelling around for about a week driving to Gibraltar etc.

I will be staying for a couple of weeks at my chalet lodge lazing by the pool and basking in my hot tub.

I will be driving my car back through Spain across the Pyrenees, through the South of France continuing up the Loire valley to eventually catch a ferry back to the UK.

I am seeking a mature female to share the driving and excitement in return I will supply a free holiday adventure.

ANYONE INTERESTED?
For further details please email me as soon as possible.

I am flexible on places to visit except Ayres Rock, which I have been to, but would like to spend time in either Northern Australia or southern. I have a son and family in Sydney, and hope to join them at Christmas, but on this trip to Oz I feel I would like to incorporate trips to other areas. Never been to Bali or Tasmania, all possible options. Would love to hear from anyone interested in adventure.

Hi LDR - I was interested to see that you may be in Australia at the same time as me. I have just been researching where to go and might be fun to pair up with someone.
It isn't something I have given a lot of thought to and it obviously needs to be two people who are similar.
Perhaps we can have a chat?

I would like to meet another lady who would like a relaxing beach type holiday with possibly some sightseeing/coach trips. I had been discussing somewhere like Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Egypt (if it safe now) but have been let down by a friend. For these destinations I would have to travel from Stansted as my local airport don't fly there. I don't have a lot of money to go further afield and also have found long haul quite tiring. I would want to go 4* or 5* and have found all-inclusive saves money. Even buying soft drinks when sunbathing can get expensive. Hope to hear from any like-minded ladies.

Hello to the silversurfers community. I have just joined and wonder if there is anyone in similar circumstances. Since becoming a grandma 2 years ago, I travel to Thailand every few months to see my family. Each winter I take the opportunity to travel elsewhere in S E Asia. I have just returned from a solo 10 day trip across the border to Myanmar. I enjoy solo travel but sometimes feel that a travelling companion would also be fun.
Hope to hear from like minded people.

Hi, This is completely new to me! Would love to meet up with like minded fellow travel Companions to see more of the world, so far I have visited many places, my last trip being Costa Rica and Panama.

I spend most of my time in Southern Spain but when in UK Norfolk where I was brought up.

I am female, divorced, slim, fit and well for my 70years, animal lover, enjoy reading, Theatre, bit if a foodie equally at home in Wellies or evening wear. Would love to meet interesting travel companion with a sense of humour and adventure to explore more together.

On my bucket list, Scandinavian Countries, Southern India, Sri Lanka, anywhere that we would both find of interest. I am not well off but like to travel in comfort, dine with the locals, not into Hostels or backpacking, enjoy staying at small family run interesting places, would be more upmarket I'm sure if my finances allowed me this luxury.

If your mature but not mouldy like me, would love to hear from you.

I am looking for someone to travel to USA with, male or female. My plan is to fly to Chicago and then take the Amtrak train to LA then drive to San Francisco . The return journey would be similar but ending in New York.
My dates are very flexible and I would like to travel with someone who is of similar age (63) or younger. It would be a fun trip covering a lot of miles.
Anyone interested?

Am looking for travel mate to share car hire/drive US East Coast north from Miami to Washington/New York from 7 May this year. Was about to book Amtrak pass for 15 days as none of my Aussie friends were available or interested but thought I'd throw the net wider for a co-driver as I prefer the flexibility of a car - but not lone driving! I want to visit some of the historic southern & coastal cities (Savannah, Charleston etc) but also go inland to the Blue Ridge Parkway/Great Smoky Mountains & some seminal US music cities & civil rights sites. I'm sailing/snorkelling in the Caribbean for a week before flying into Miami & will have already been to New Orleans. Want to do the trip north over 10 days/2 weeks & am meeting a friend from Spain in New York for a similar time before flying back to Australia on 1 June 2016. Please contact me on this site if interested.

I'd love to travel around the UK with someone who can show me all the great, out-of-the-way spots. I've been to all the tourist spots and now I want to see all the hidden treasures of the British Islands. I'd love to find someone who has an RV (caravan) and wants to travel around seeing the sights. I'm a teacher so I have my summers free. I'd like to travel light, hit campgrounds and see the real cities and towns of the UK. I'm looking for a travel companion (male or female) who wants to just set out and explore! I can pay half expenses but want to keep things as inexpensive as possible. I've love to stay about a month.

I'm hoping to see Venice this year, if I can just find the right person/people to travel with. I usually have short city breaks with BA as they've never let me down so far, but am struggling to find someone to travel with on this occasion, as everyone I know has already been and I would never consider travelling alone. It would be lovely if I could link up with a group of people to travel with, the more the merrier so far as I'm concerned. I'm based in the West Midlands but usually fly from Heathrow.

It hit me like a train just yesterday when a long time niggling itch to see the world (and I mean the world), always worthy of contemplating, when it dawned on me that others, like me, may have the same urge but felt inhibited and daunted by the magnitude of such an undertaking entirely on their own. Without wishing to appear to be prostituting myself I can see a niche for individuals to finally cast off a need to be anchored to their 'world' and yet feel secure enough to do that journey with like-minded people. Does anybody else see the canvas rolling down and a need to peek below it before it blanks out the limelight?

Hi i am a young 56 yr old woman who has discovered the world of cruising. Unfortunately the single suppliments on these trips make it impossible to go alone.I am looking for someone who may be interested in cruising and would like to share the costs of the accommodation to make this possible,no strings attatched.
I prefer non fly cruises leaving from the UK and long trips.
I have found 2 which are interesting one for 40days leaving in Nov2016 or another for 50days leaving Jan2017.
Is there anyone who may be interested in either?
If not this time anyone who may be interested for future cruises please get in touch.

Hi I live in Australia and love to travel. I am tired of travelling alone and seek like minded people who would like to travel together in OZ.
I am a retired school teacher and am planning to explore this beautiful country while I can. I have lived and traveled all over the world. Is there anyone who may be interested in road trips as a group during the summer months in Australia.
I drive with my two small dogs and camp along the way. I used to tow a camper van but these days I travel lighter with a small vehicle and tent. I am free to plan a trip to where ever you may like to go. I am based in the Blue Mountains ( Sydney NSW)
If you are interested please drop me a note if you are interested.
Thanks

I love to travel! Esp by train. My wife, however, does not. So sometimes, I like to dream about train trips I'd love to take. But I'm "of a certain age" and it's no longer practical to take some of the trips I fantasize about, alone.

I've always wanted to ride the Trans-Siberian Express. And I've got this (ridiculous?) idea that I'd like to be able to say I've gone from London to Hong Kong by train! It's feasible, by the way. But of course I can't and won't do it alone. So I'm thinking about trying to find someone else who might also consider some of the outlandish foreign train trips I've always wanted to take, such as this one. I'd like to think about doing this sometime late summer or fall in 2016. It's pricey but it's within my reach.

I'm in my 70s, retired professional, well educated, seriously into classical music/opera, art, history, natural scenery, etc., when traveling. And trains--did I mention that?

I've just signed up to this forum, and I'm not sure how to use it. I assume if someone wants to reply, it'll be here, so I'll check back from time to time to see if anyone has taken an interest in my (preposterous?) idea.

Hmmm. There are not many men who are seriously interested in adventure travel, classical music and opera.

I am passionate about classical music and opera and have been for most of my life. I am also passionate about travelling the world and have doing so or 50 years, much of it alone.

Have two degrees, multicultural, speak fluent french and german.
I am also diabetic, type 2.

I have often thought about the Trans-Siberian rail but have hesitated because of the unknown bed and food situations.

What train trips have you done?

Please tell me more about yourself, in particular your profession and where you live.

Hello Gerry. I too am a school teacher, and, like you am limited by school holidays and a teacher (limited) budget. I have never sought a travel companion before, but my wife is Polish and goes back there every summer. I am at a point in life were I can travel more freely, and to be honest, I have no desire to go to Poland. I have been there once.

I would like to visit Belize, and just spend time relaxing, exploring the Mayan ruins and rain forests as well as the other sites of the country. But, most of all I just want to relax and have a nice time.

I hope to hear back from you, and please feel free to ask me any questions you wish, or share any of your travel ideas or interests.

I retired at 50 and now travel the world using 'home exchanging'. My wife has found travelling 11 months out of 12 for the past 7 years 'a bit too much' so l am now looking for a travel companion(s) who want to explore the world.

My next big trip travelling solo is to Shanghai (China) from 1st December 2015 until 31st January 2016 (inclusive). I am looking for a like minded travel companion.

Dear wanderer

Kind regards.

For the past ten years I have travelled the world with companions with companions from two travel groups which have either closed down or appear likely to do so. Through these I have found many friends and travel companions of both sexes.

Hi, Your readers may also be interested in togetherfriends.com, my friendship website for women in the UK. Lots of women over 50 have joined the site who are looking to broaden their social circle. They are looking for companions for coffee, walks, sport, travel etc. Many of them have recently retired, are divorced, widowed, or have moved to a new area. Lack of a travel companion is a big issue for women on their own.
