As a result, there is a wide range of holiday types you can choose from.
Generally speaking, the male/female ratio on these holidays tends to involve a lot more women. According to SolosHolidays, this is simply because women book earlier. On average, there tend to be groups of around 15 people but they can also involve groups of 20-30 or more.
