Singles Holidays

Travelling Solo

More and more holidaymakers are heading abroad on their own. Singles holidays can be a liberating, eye-opening experience, and single travellers can enjoy everything that our destinations have to offer just as much as they would as part of a group.

Our checklist for single guests is a useful guideline to help you make the most of your adventure.


Things to Consider

 * Buy comprehensive travel insurance to cover the cost of any medical bills or lost luggage.
    Balkan Holidays can offer a range of insurance policies 
 * Take clothes that adhere to local laws and customs such as long sleeves and trousers.
    Long sarongs are a good investment as they can double up as a thin blanket or towel
 * Eye contact with local men can be seen as flirting so try to avoid it
 * When out and about, appear confident and look as though you know where you are 
    going, even if you don't!
 * Ask women or families for directions if you get lost
 * Carry toilet paper wherever you go - local toilets sometimes aren't as well equipped as 
    those at home!
 * Leave expensive jewellery at home - a sparkling gold necklace will turn you into a beacon 
    for thieves
 * Keep a close eye on your drink when you are out in a bar and don't accept drinks from 
 * Use reputable taxi firms, speak to your representative for advice. Never hitchhike - it's not 
    worth the risk!
 * Stay safe in your hotel - lock the door, keep the window closed and don't let anyone 
    overhear your room number
 * If someone tries to pinch your bag, just let it go and shout for help
 * Balkan Holidays has a representative in all resorts, please ask their advice and attend the
    Welcome Meeting

Single travellers need to be a little extra cautious while they are abroad. But if you follow these guidelines then you are less likely to encounter any problems and enjoy your holiday with ease.           

Where to go

Montenegro - is a land blessed by exceptional versatility and colourful contrasts with unmatched natural beauty and centuries of traditions, still visible in the small villages along the coast.

Mr. Cannings, Sunny Beach
Another great holiday with Balkan Holidays.

Mr. George, Bansko
Great resort, all the staff and instructs were brilliant. Those extra touches really help to make the holiday even better.

Mrs. Hunt, Bansko
We had a brilliant holiday & hope to return to Bansko next year.

Mrs. Mansfield, Porec
All in all a very good holiday. Could not fault light or accommodation. Would recommend to anyone.

Mr. Giles, Korcula
Having just returned to Scotland after my two week holiday in the Hotel Marko Polo, Korcula ( Croatia ), I e-mail you to thank you and all your staff for such a wonderful holiday. The holiday was completely problem free and I find it hard to see how my wife and I could have enjoyed the holiday any more. I would be grateful if you would forward our appreciation to the staff in the hotel for everything that they did to ensure we had an excellent holiday in Korcula. You can be assured that I will let all my friends know about the excellence of Hotel Marko Polo in Korcula.
