Go Solo this September with Titan Travel


Travelling alone has never been more popular, particularly for those aged 65 and over. ABTA reports show our population is older and more adventurous than ever before – and many are satisfying their itchy feet with a far-flung foray into the world of solo travel. Escorted holiday specialist, Titan Travel, is celebrating this shift in holiday appetite by joining the #SoloSeptember campaign, offering discerning travellers a value-added middle ground between travelling with a companion and travelling completely alone.

The operator has doubled its offering of solo tours for 2019, now offering 22 itineraries reserved exclusively for those travelling by themselves. Each tour is designed specifically with single travellers in mind and with an experienced Titan tour manager hosting a drinks reception on the first night of each tour; it’s a fantastic way to get to know like-minded travellers – all with absolutely no single supplements to pay.

What’s more, Titan ensures those travelling alone are supported each step of the way with its renowned VIP door-to-door travel service and airport meet-and-greet all included. For those who wants an even wider selection of holidays to choose from, the operator also offers a selection of its non-solo itineraries with no or very low single supplements.

In fact, Titan’s solo tours are so well regarded; the operator has been nominated in the prestigious British Travel Awards under the ‘Best Singles Holiday Company’, with those who cast their vote entered into a prize draw to win a host of fabulous prizes.

Here’s some solo holiday options:

India’s Golden Triangle

This fantastic introduction to India combines the three cities of the Golden Triangle with the added extra of Ranthambore National Park. Journeying in a loop from Delhi, tick -off highlights include the Taj Mahal and the forts of pink-hued palaces of Jaipur. Three safari drives in Ranthambore provides the opportunity to search for the elusive Bengal tigers, leopards, sloth bears and monkeys. (Departing 14 August 2019, eight nights from £2,099).

California and the Golden West

One of the longest-running of Titan’s original tours – and still one of the most popular today – California and the Golden West loops around California and nudges into neighbouring Nevada and Arizona. This tour includes great cities like Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Francisco; drives along Route 66 and the Pacific coastal road, taking in the spectacular scenery of Yosemite National Park. (Departing 12 September 2019, 15 nights from £3,749).

Terracotta Warriors and mountain scenery on ‘Treasures of China’

The Great Wall and the palaces of the Forbidden City. The army of Terracotta Warriors at Xi’an. The dramatic mountain scenery of the Yangtze Gorges. Become immersed in the sights and sounds of China. Discover the very best of this incredible country, from deliciously spicy Sichuan food to loveable Giant Pandas. Then spend three laid-back days cruising along the beautiful Yangtze River. (Departing 28 May 2019, 13 nights from £2,949).

Discover the beauty of northern Italy and Switzerland with ‘Scenic Lake Orta’

The smallest of the Italian Lakes, Orta remains refreshingly uncrowded and almost untouched by tourism.

(Departs 25 April 2019, seven nights from £1,399).
