Reassurance for all newcomers and first timers.
Post: #1
Two years ago I was in the same position as many of you, having lost my husband in February 2012. A had never travelled alone, or even for that matter lived alone. I am in my mid-70's. I found JY and other singles holiday companies through an internet search and booked my first holiday.

I was so scared a few days before departure that I almost asked my doctor to sign me off sick so that I did not have to go and claim on the insurance! Sense prevailed because I really knew that she wouldn't do it.

You are really "on your own" until you get to the departure airport. Unless of course you have someone to travel with you, or take you to the airport. From there on you will have as much or as little company as you wish.

Fellow travellers are there for the same reason you are - it is somewhere they want to visit. Whether it is for the sights, architecture, history, food, culture, you have that in common at check-in.

I am so glad that I didn't call off that first holiday to France which was in May, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The age range, which was from about mid 30's to 80 really didn't matter, in fact I booked another for September to Calabria and thoroughly enjoyed that as well.

I have two holidays booked this year - one of them with JY.

In my limited experience tour managers have been fantastic. The second hotel was far and away better than the first, but the first was very, very good.

Organisation from departure airport - resort(s) - return airport is smooth. Everything is done for you.

All you have to do is choose - read any reviews on the forum that you can find - book - pay - turn up - ENJOY!!

If anyone wants to contact me "off forum" JY have my email address.

Happy travelling.

Hello Sylvia,
I agree with Cindy- they should roll out this for every Newbie and it would save a lot of heartache when they know how great the Company is Smile

Sylvia,

How kind and thoughtful of you to write such a review. It will reassure "newbies" who are hesitating, for whatever reasons, about taking the plunge.

Good for you and keep enjoying your JY holidays.

Welcome to the world of JY ..I went on the HKG and NZ tour in January 2012 so if you have any question, just ask away and I will try and help you, I am sure I put a review up about the tour so have a look on the review section and see what was said.

Happy travelling

Cindy
