With the government announcing a total lock-down of the UK, going on a holiday might be the last thing on your mind, but perhaps now is the time to start considering your next trip once the coronavirus pandemic is over.

Nobody knows for sure when travel restrictions will be removed, but let’s hope that things will return to relative normalcy sometime in summer.

With that in mind, we have listed a couple of special offers from family-run British tour operator One Traveller that specialises in escorted holidays and cruises for the mature solo traveller.
