4. Choose an activity holiday: Rather than sit on a coach seeing the sites, choose a holiday that revolves around doing something creative, like cooking or painting. Sharing a passion with your fellow travellers creates an instant connection and, with mutual interests, you’re bound to bond.
5. Take a game: A pack of cards can be an invaluable asset to any group trip, particularly on singles holiday when you’ll be engaging new people for the first time. A card game offers a nice break from small talk in those first few evenings, when everyone’s loosening up.

Decide what sort of trip suits you best and look for companies that meet your ideal.
