Solos wins Gold for Best Travel Company for Singles Holidays at the British Travel Awards

Established company, Solos, was awarded Gold for Best Travel Company for Singles Holidays (small company) at the prestigious British Travel Awards, on Tuesday 28 November 2023.  

Solos was founded in 1982 and now offers a wide range of holidays for globetrotting travellers. From Costa Rica to Canada, Africa to America, India to Iceland, Croatia to the Caribbean and Uzbekistan to the UK, Solos has divided its holidays into easy-to-select categories depending on interests. Whether it be winter sun, tennis, walks & treks, golf, or city breaks, the only thing guests need in common is a zest for life and a desire to travel.

Having launched in 2018, the British Travel Awards is home to the largest poll of consumer opinion on the best companies operating in leisure travel. The awards have no affiliation or stakeholder interest with any travel or publishing companies; they are determined solely by the number of public votes cast. Over the last five years, an average of 312,000 individuals have registered their votes annually – this level of participation, combined with the straightforward voting process, has established the British Travel Awards as the gold standard for enterprises operating in the leisure travel sector.

The 2023 awards ceremony took place at Battersea Evolution in London, and was a wonderful celebration of achievement for all companies recognised by customers as being the best in the business. Sports presenter and actress, Charlotte Jackson Coleman, hosted the proceedings, and money was raised for Make A Wish charity.

The winners were determined solely by the number of consumer votes cast between July and October 2023. This year, an incredible 1,660,863 votes were cast across the travel and leisure categories, making the British Travel Awards 2023 a record-breaking year for consumer votes.

Janie Burt, Managing Director of Solos, says: We are absolutely thrilled, and want to send a massive, heartfelt thank you to our amazing and loyal customers for their unwavering support. I am beyond proud of the incredible Solos team working tirelessly behind the scenes, making all our guests’ travel dreams come true. This achievement is not just a trophy, it’s a testament to the incredible journey we’ve had since our humble beginnings in the 80s, and a celebration of the vibrant Solos community we’ve come to know and love. Here’s to continually exploring the world together and creating more unforgettable memories! Congratulations, also, to all the other winners and nominees – what a fabulous group of people and a fantastic range of companies”.  

Regardless of its name, Solos is keen to challenge the assumption that solo travel is purely for single people. Irrespective of age, ability, circumstance, background, gender – there really is something for everyone. Perhaps this could be the key to maintaining a healthy relationship – allowing each other the freedom to find their own path, embrace their differences, and make new friends.

Recently, Solos has launched a wide range of exciting new trips ready for 2024, including an adventure to the Uzbekistan Silk Road, an immersive experience of Venice and Verona Carnival, and a chance to soak up the summer sun on a Greek Island Hopper holiday.
