Solo Travellers Escorted Tours

Train holidays for solo travellers

At Great Rail Journeys, we believe that rail travel is for everyone, including those who choose to holiday as a solo traveller. We take great pride in helping each one of our passengers make the most of our tours and their destinations, whether they travel with a partner, friends or on their own.

Our solo travellers enjoy the same benefits as everyone else, while at the same time getting the benefits of a flexible solo experience. All our tours give the option of whether to join the group on an excursion or venture off on their own, providing an option for those who prefer undisturbed exploration.

The following tours are some of our most comprehensive and best-loved European options, suitable for groups, couples and individuals alike! Not only that, all of them offer no additional supplements, meaning that solo travellers aren't penalised for going it alone.

Please note, all our tours are available to solo travellers and on each tour, solo travellers can be sure to enjoy the exact same high quality as everyone else.

However, on tours which do not feature our No Solo Supplement offer, solo travellers will be required to pay a supplement for their chosen departure. These supplements are charged by the hotels we use; we do not charge supplements for our own services provided by Great Rail Journeys.

To only search for tours with no solo supplement, please click More filters to the right of the Your search bar, and tick the I'm travelling solo, show single room pricing checkbox.

No Single Supplement

We always aim to offer fair single supplements for our customers who prefer to travel alone, only charging the supplement for the extra costs levied by some hotels for single occupancy

Taking a holiday by train, is possibly the most stress free way of exploring the world and there are more advantages of joining an escorted tour. All Great Rail Journeys holidays are accompanied by a Tour Manager who is on hand to assist throughout the trip and to oversee the planned excursions.

Should you choose to eschew our pre-planned excursions then your Tour Manager will be able to offer advice on alternative sights in the region and any local traditions you can experience on your holiday.
