Riviera introduces ‘‘For Solo Travellers’ 2019 collection

Riviera Travel has launched its new ‘For Solo Travellers’ collection featuring destinations such as China, Morocco, Sicily, Madeira and the Dalmatian Coast for the first time.

The increasing numbers of UK travellers choosing to explore the world solo was recognised as a trend in ABTA’s most recent Holiday Habits Survey. Solo travel is most popular with the over 65s, 18% of whom have travelled alone in the past 12 months with 81% stating they did so for the opportunity to be able to do what they want.

Will Sarson, head of specialist product for the operator, said: “Riviera Travel has long embraced solo travellers – for many years we’ve welcomed and catered for lone travellers on our escorted tour itineraries and featured sole occupancy cabins with no single supplements on many of our river cruises. As we saw increasing demand for this type of holiday, in 2017 we launched our first collection designed exclusively for solos which was a great success. We also introduced dedicated solo river cruises for the first time for 2018, which filled up at such a healthy rate that we added an extra date. This year we’ve more than doubled the number of passengers on our solo holidays and we’re immensely proud to offer such a diverse range of destinations and itineraries. We look forward to bringing even more fantastic holiday options to the collection in years to come.”

As an example from its new collection of worldwide escorted tours, the ‘Grand Tour of China with Yangtze cruise for Solo Travellers’ starts from £3,399 per person. Highlights during this 16-day journey - which departs on March 19, 2019 - include visits to the Longshen Rice Terraces, the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, the Temple of Heaven and the imperial gardens at the Summer Palace in Beijing. Additionally, the itinerary includes a five-star full-board Yangtze River Cruise through the Three Gorges Dam, walking the Great Wall of China and seeing the Terracotta Army. The price includes flights, transfers, 11 nights’ accommodation in four-star hotels, three nights aboard a five-star ship and all tours mentioned in the itinerary.
