Activity holidays are on the rise and the biggest surge in demand is coming from travellers over 50 and the majority are travelling solo!
At Vidados, we provide unique activity holidays direct from local, independent hosts who love what they do.
We’ve recently seen a big increase in over 50s booking solo trips. We’ve spoken to Jack, who’s already travelled solo on two Vidados holidays is looking to book a third, and other solo travellers to identify the top reasons why this type of travel is becoming so popular:
These are just some of the experiences our solo travellers are discovering every day!
Instead of having to pay extra for your own room as in many hotels, you can avoid the single supplement on many activity holidays. Better still, as you’ll be staying with local hosts, you could stay in some incredible accommodation. Our hosts have spent years renovating gorgeous villas and you might even sleep in a castle!
3. Learn a new skill
Activity holidays are also becoming increasingly popular as a way to learn something new. If you’ve been putting off learning how to cook, want to learn to take better photographs, or are keen to seize the opportunity to put pen to paper and write that book you’ve had milling about in your head for years on a creative writing holiday, now’s the time!
Travelling solo doesn’t have to mean being alone. More over 50s are discovering that activity holidays are a great way to make new friends and meet people who love the same things they do. You’ve all chosen to take a similar activity holiday for starters.
Most importantly an activity holiday is great fun!
You’ll come home with great experiences, stories and new friends. You’ll get free time to explore the local towns and countryside and our hosts are always on hand to give you their top tips on where to explore!
