Our pre-holiday get-togethers are offered on holidays where the flight departs the main airport before lunch time. This allows you to travel stress-free to the main airport out of rush hour traffic and to check-in at the Radisson Blu Edwardian, Heathrow or the Courtyard by Marriott, Gatwick (located walking distance from Gatwick’s South Terminal) where you will be greeted by our host, and rest before dinner. This evening gives you an early opportunity to relax with your fellow travellers over welcome drinks and a three-course dinner all hosted by a One Traveller representative who will answer any questions you may have. The following morning, breakfast is included as well as a private transfer to the airport where our host will assist with check-in. It’s a great start and highly recommended for first time single travellers and anyone feeling somewhat apprehensive.
If you require parking at the hotel for the duration of your stay we can arrange this at a special negotiated fee of £8 per day (2017 £11 per day at Gatwick, Heathrow remains £8 per day)
If you are considering travelling alone but feel a little nervous about doing so, One Traveller invites you to join us on one of our relaxed and informal pre-holiday get-togethers for the night so you can meet fellow travellers and one of our Tour Managers; learning all about single travel before deciding to travel with us on holiday.
Most of our customers are single mature travellers over 50, and they travel for a variety of reasons. Our travellers always meet new friends on their trips away, and you are going to find many others similar to you on the same trips. The pre holiday get together is a great way to get to know a little about your fellow travellers before you pop off on your dream break away.
“The opportunity to stay at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel at Heathrow, thereby meeting most of the other members of the group was, in my view is a stroke of genius. By the time we left for Heathrow we seemed to have gelled as a group and this friendship continued right through the holiday”
