As Brits prepare for the cold winter months, Friendship Travel has a host of trips this Autumn to destinations such as Cyprus, Turkey and Cape Verde, for those keen to enjoy lasting warm weather elsewhere.
The three destinations share an abundance of breathtaking nature, beautiful beaches, and fascinating historical sites to discover, whilst providing hours of sunshine and ideal temperatures well into autumn.
Friendship Travel is a leading provider of solo holidays, and the concept is perfect for single travellers who want to meet other like-minded individuals and experience stunning destinations while forming new friendships and relationships.
Travelling with Friendship Travel allows solo travellers to enjoy charming, family-run properties, hearty meals and as much (or little) company during their travels as they desire.
