New solo hols are just grand

Grand UK Holidays

There’s one sector of the holiday market that continues to grow – breaks for single people over 55. Specialist Grand UK Holidays has added five new escorted coach tours covering destinations such as Bournemouth, Cardiff, Yorkshire and Austria.

Travellers on its main Grand UK programme don’t pay supplements for single bedded rooms on mainland UK coach holidays and it also has a dedicated Friendship Club solo travel programme.

Tours include five days in Bournemouth including excursions to Lyndhurst & Winchester, Dorchester, Poole and Swanage on March 18 from £239 per person. Eight days in Austria including a boat cruise on Lake Zell, guided walking tour of Salzburg and the Krimml Waterfalls, departing on June 9 from £599 per person.

Sales director Harold Burke said: “The over-55s age group is a growing market and solo travellers make up an increasingly large proportion of this sector. A significant proportion of our customers are single, widowed or divorced.

“Grand UK has catered for the needs of solo travellers for more than a quarter of a century now and we know what is important to them and what makes them come back to us again. Having a Grand UK tour manager escort helps to ensure everyone feels included and no one is left out.”
