Solo travel FAQs
Will I have to pay a single supplement?
On our dedicated Solo Travellers group tours, you travel entirely free of single supplements.
If you join one of our other group tours as a solo guest, additional charges may apply. This is because hotels generally charge based on two people sharing a twin/double room, and a single supplement makes up the full cost.
When will I meet my tour manager?
You will meet your tour manager at the airport upon arrival in the destination country, or at the welcome dinner alongside fellow guests.
How big will my tour group be?
Our tour groups average 14 guests, and do not exceed 18 guests, ensuring a more personal touring experience.
Will I eat by myself?
Only if you wish. All of our group tours include a welcome and farewell dinner, giving you an opportunity to make friends among your new companions, and bid them farewell after your shared adventures. Where a meal is included, your tour manager will arrange for the group to sit together. When there is an opportunity to eat at a local restaurant, guests may wish to dine together or individually.
Will I have time to explore independently?
All our tours include time for exploring away from the group, be it for the evening or the afternoon.
What is the average age of people travelling solo with Cox & Kings?
Our tours attract mature travellers with a thirst for adventure and new experiences. Cox & Kings guests are typically in their fifties, sixties and beyond – though we welcome younger travellers, too.
How do I get to the airport at the start of the holiday?
We can arrange a taxi pick-up at the start and end of your holiday and are happy to provide the cost for this at the time of enquiry.
Can I travel from my local airport?
All our tours include international flights, and are priced based on flights from London Gatwick or London Heathrow. Our experienced team are happy to discuss options for flying from an airport closer to your home.
Can I make any special requests, such as if I have a dietary requirement?
Our friendly travel experts are on hand to handle any special requests you may have.
