It’s great to feel independent and travel on your own but before you’ve been on a Just You holiday you might be wondering about what exactly to expect. Here’s a selection of some of the most frequently asked questions that appear on our Community pages, hopefully they’ll cover everything that’s on your mind..
Frequently Asked Questions
On average, there’s usually about 20-30 people in a group but this varies depending on the tour. The minimum group size tends to be around 10 people.
There are generally more women than men on a lot of Just You holidays. On average, about three-quarters of a group may be female. However, recently we are seeing an increase in the number of men on our holidays.
The majority of our customers are aged in their 50s and 60s, but you could meet people in their 20s or 80s or anything in between on our holidays. Age really doesn’t matter - anyone is welcome on one of our holidays.
The whole idea of a Just You holiday is for you to have the holiday that is right for you. You’re welcome to join all the excursions and any social occasions, such as our welcome drink and farewell get-togethers, but nothing is compulsory and you can opt in or out as you please.
Lots of our holidays offer flights from local airports all over the UK. Details of available departure airports for your chosen holiday can be viewed by clicking on the 'Departures' tab.
The million dollar question! Quite simply, the world is your oyster. If you want to dip your toe in the water our City holidays and short-haul breaks in Europe could be just the thing. Or if you really want to go for it, jump right in at the deep end and go somewhere you’ve always dreamed of visiting. Wherever you decide to go, we know you’ll have a great time!
To help you choose the right holiday for your individual needs we indicate at the end of each holiday description the level of walking required to maximise your enjoyment of the holiday. We point out where you might be required to walk in areas of rough ground, gradients and steps, and we highlight holidays which may not be suitable for customers with limited mobility. If you would like further advice please speak to one of our Holiday Advisors.

If your holiday includes a flight departing from (or returning to) a UK airport, your holiday will be operated by G Touring Limited (company number 04956006) Compass House, Rockingham Road, Market Harborough, Leicestershire, LE16 7QD. These holidays are ATOL protected by the Civil Aviation Authority (ATOL number 11266). G Touring Limited is also a member of ABTA (the Association of British Travel Agents Limited). For any holiday which does not include a flight, we provide financial security for holiday arrangements booked through us by way of a financial failure insurance policy.
When you choose a Make Your Own Way holiday, if you do not have flights arranged by us your holiday will not be ATOL protected by G Touring Limited. We will not be responsible for expenses you incur or unused services in the event that your flights are cancelled or delayed and this impacts on your ability to join and participate in the Tour. Your flight organiser or airline should provide information on financial failure protection and repatriation as it relates to your flight arrangements. If they do not provide this please also see www.caa.co.uk/passengers for information on passenger rights. Only arrangements booked through Just You will be financially protected by our financial failure insurance.
