Singlesport is THE leading ski specialist for single travellers since 2001. We do not have families or children.
Singlesport is not a dating agency. Most of our members are single but many have partners at home who do not share their love of sport.
Singlesport tries to avoid single supplements but if that’s not possible in top resorts we match up guests who are happy to share and try to obtain reasonable supplements for those who choose a single room. We never add the single supplement into the base price & then tell you its a single room without supplement!
Singlesport is like a ski club, free to choose to take holidays with whichever tour operator we think is best. This year we have chosen skivo2 for chalets & lessons in Couchevel, Skivolution for a ski course in Kaprun, Alpine Italy for our guided holidays in Italy , Ski Power for our “freeneasy” holidays in Deux Alpes (with lots of freebies) and Neilson for our summer beach clubs. Whilst Singlesport does all the booking your money goes direct to the tour operator so that your contract is with them
Singlesport respects that you want to choose how you spend your holiday. We therefore provide different types of ski holidays and our summer beach clubs give a huge choice of activities on land, water and in deckchairs! We do not travel every week because we try to have large groups to enable you to find like minded friends who ski or apres or sun just the way you do, this opportunity would be limited in smaller groups . Some start early some prefer a lie in. Some want lessons some do not. Some are technical sportsmen whilst others think skis are to enable them to join up restaurants and summer sun is best spent in deckchairs! Singlesport caters for us all
Singlesport has a wide range of ages, whilst the majority might be over 40 there are many older and younger from 20s to 70s . Sport is a great leveller & we find that friendships have more to do with sporting ability than age, until its time to go out at night & that’s very different! Some curl up with cocoa (well OK wine then!) whilst others are out on the town.
Singlesport makes it easy to meet new friends. Before we leave UK you will get a list of guests so you can introduce yourself to those who live nearby and may share airport parking if you are on the same flight. On our smaller holidays where we have 20 or 30 guests its easy to meet everyone in the hotel but in Courchevel where we often have over 80 guests in several chalets its a social whirl! About 60% of guests are repeats and so they will introduce new comers to friends they met in previous years. By going to lessons you meet guests staying in other chalets who ski exactly the way you do ready to free ski at your pace after the lesson. Of course there are drinks parties and other social events during the week too , you can party as much or as little as you choose.
Ruth, who founded Singlesport, still offers a personal service. Booking a holiday as a single person can be a risky business and everyone has different criteria and different levels of experience and expectations. Some people fly every day of the week on business whilst others may never have booked their own flight before. Some are expert skiers whilst others are beginners. Whatever your worry you can talk to her on email or telephone before you book to make sure the holiday will be right for you. Ruth will know who has already booked & will usually be on the holiday herself to make sure that all the promises are lived up to!
