Benidorm Solo Holiday Tips
Tips for travelling solo in Benidorm
Benidorm tends to be associated with family holidaymakers, and Brits abroad that like a good party. While this isn't far from the truth, the same can be said of London, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam... the list goes on.
In all honesty, Benidorm is a destination that has something to offer all types of visitors, and we'll make sure that you get off to a great start with our airport transfers.
The first thing to consider when travelling alone is: "How safe is the place I'm visiting?" In this respect, Benidorm is just like any other civilised place on the planet. That is to say: you won't have any issues as long as you use common sense. For instance, it's never a good idea to wander around dark, quiet streets on your own – no matter where in the world you are. Happily, Benidorm is a vibrant seaside resort and it's rare to find oneself all alone.
Despite occasional scare stories, Benidorm is a very safe place to stay. The types of crimes that occur tend to be of the petty variety – pickpocketing and the like. If you have any valuables, consider storing them in a locker or safe. If you need to have them on you, make sure they are not conspicuous.
Where to stay
Benidorm's many hotels cater well for couples, families and parties of friends but are't necessarily ideally suited to solo visitors, particularly when it comes to single occupancy rates. This is why it might be a good idea to consider renting a self-catering apartment. Airbnb is the best known site for wrangling holiday accommodation but there are plenty more alternatives out there advertising places to stay that are a good fit for unaccompanied Benidorm visitors.
You're not the only one
You might feel like you're the only solo traveller in Benidorm but bear in mind that there are many, many others that are doing just as you are. Benidorm is a friendly city, from the locals to the visitors – who are there to have a good time, after all. If you're the sociable type, it won't be long before you're striking up a conversation with a congenial soul or two.
Travelling in and around Benidorm is easy, even if you can't drive or don't wish to hire a car. The city features excellent bus and tram networks, and hiring a bike is a great way to explore Benidorm and the Costa Blanca at large. Before you decide how to get around, our Benidorm Airport transfers will ensure that you get to your accommodation from the airport with the minimum of fuss.
