Travelling alone? Welcome aboard, we'd love to have you! Solo travellers with Great Rail Journeys are just as important to us as those who travel in groups, and can look forward to the same high standards and excellent quality as everyone else.
The Great Rail Journeys single traveller experience
As soon as you arrive at your departure point, be it at our Dedicated Departure Office in London St Pancras or at the airport, you will be immediately introduced to your professional Tour Manager and the rest of your group. From here on out, your time spent travelling, your included meals and many of your excursions will be spent alongside your group of like-minded travellers, allowing you a wealth of opportunities to make new friends. Your Tour Manager is always on hand, and will always seek to include everyone in excursions and at meal times, meaning you'll never be alone unless you want to be.
Over the course of your holiday, there will often be free time with which you can head out on your own, if you choose, to discover the wonders of your chosen destination. As well as that, you are not obliged to take part in any of the excursions, so there's always time to kick back and enjoy some alone time from the group.
By the end of a tour, many of our solo travellers find that they have made good friends across the holiday, friends who they stay in touch with long after the final rail journey. Some even form friendships which take them on adventures with Great Rail Journeys in the future!
