Christmas can be a lonely time for solo’s, if they don’t prepare for it. If you are single, heartbroken, lonelyand have no one to spend the festive period with, this article is for you.

Traveling solo over Christmas has plenty of appeal, so why not spend the time doing something you really want to do?Before you decide where to go, you should spend time thinking about your holiday needs and expectations and the reasons you would like to spend Christmas traveling. Once you establish your needs you can start looking for the right destination or tour. You will be amazed how many companies offer holidays for people just like you!

  • If you can’t bear the winter cold and would like a beach vacation, choose to take off to sunnier shores. Europeans can consider Egypt, Canary Islandsor the United Arab Emirates. North Americans will know to look at Mexico or the Caribbean.  Each of these destinations has an average day temperature in December of 27C.  and plenty of sunshine.

  • Perhaps you seek a stress free holiday without hassles such as planning Christmas day lunch or hosting a party? Why not consider taking off to places where Christmas isn’ta major celebration. I would recommend a Bali wherecarols could be replaced with sounds of a gamelan gong and instead of snow on Christmas Eve, you could relax by watching the amazing Indonesian sunset.

  • Maybe you would like to escape the feeling of being alone for the festive season? Did you know there are many companies that organise escorted tours for singles in winter? For example Travelspherein the UK offers an escorted vacation to the stunning Pacific coastline at Christmas  (including Hollywood, Las Vegas and The Grand Canyon).  The most important thing is that there will be other people like you around. Also Solos Holidays organise a Christmas celebration across the UK.  Meetings include carol singing and dinners http://www.solosholidays.co.uk/singles-holidays-christmas .  From North America, look at O Solo Mio Tours www.osolomio.com and Singles travel International www.singlestravelintl.com.

  • If you like to have an active Christmas, skiing is the obvious choice – whether you are a beginner or expert.  Some resorts are more suited to single travellers, for example Morzine in Portes du Soleil (Switzerland) and Whistler (Canada) www.pistepals.com  and www.singlesski.com  are the top operators who provide ski holidays for independently minded skiers and snowboarders. They do not charge single supplements and offer mix groups where you have a chance to meet other skiers. Such holidays are great for active loving singles or those who find themselves without a partner to ski.

  • Adult singles who seek  relaxation over Christmas  could choose a cruise vacation, where you are guaranteed fabulous cuisine and pampered service throughout.  Amongst ships now offering single cabins, Norwegian Epic and P&O Azura are notable, with newly designed accommodation geared to solo travelers.  Cruise Complete is a website which gathers the information about cruises that sail over Christmas cruises and compare multiple, competing quotes from independent cruise travel agentshttp://www.cruisecompete.com/.
