About the event

The trend for solo holidays has been growing in recent years. According to ABTA research*, more than one in six people (15%) chose to go on holiday by themselves in the past 12 months – up from the one in nine (12%) who took a solo holiday in 2017 and almost three times as many as those in 2011 (6%). 

Has your holiday company responded to this growing demand? Do your products appeal to solo travellers of all ages? Is your messaging and tone right? Do staff have the right skills to provide the best customer service for those wishing to book by themselves? Are you delivering the best experiences for those who choose to travel alone?
