5,950 Euro (excluding flights)

Solo In Style:
Women over 50 travelling solo and loving it!

Join our Solo In Style Mallorca Getaway, curated and hosted by Deborah Ives, founder of Solo In Style, and Laura Cozik, founder of Mallorca by Design.

Discover Mallorca...

 

Mallorca is known for its beautiful coastline, secluded coves, limestone mountains, Spanish architecture, wineries, weekly markets, and stunning beaches.  You will experience all of these during our Mallorca Getaway.  We have exclusive use of our very own hotel accommodations for six beautiful nights in a local village at the foot of the Tramuntana Mountains.  After, we head to the city of Palma for three spectacular nights in a small boutique hotel in the old town. 

 

Villages You Will Explore... 

 

 

This Getaway Is For You If...

 

You are not a fan of crowds and tourism.  Temperatures in the 60's and 70's are your comfort zone.  Dining alfresco in a light sweater in the crisp air appeals to you.  Learning about olives and olive oil production would be an incredible experience for you, along with visiting local markets to taste everything in season.  Historic walks in the old town, learning about history and culture, awakens your curiosity.  You love nature, hiking, exploring.  Those in the know, know that Autumn is exceptional.  It is harvest time for olives, grapes, mushrooms and more, and there are festivals galore taking place, where you can mingle with locals and immerse yourself in their way of life.  There will be a good amount of walking each day, so an appropriate level of fitness is required. 

 

Your Local Host...

 

Local resident Laura has been hosting events in Mallorca since 2011 and her focus is always on the most unique experiences.  You’re in for an unforgettable adventure. 

 

Join Us...  

 

This Mallorca Getaway is limited to just 12 amazing women.  Everyone has their own room with private bath.  Rooms are first come, first served ... the sooner you register, the more choices you have.  Join us as we enjoy each other’s company, share our stories, forge new friendships, and have an insane amount of fun to boot.  Laugh as much as you breathe and stay curious as long as you live.

Deborah 1 BEST.jpg

DEBORAH

Founder, Solo in Style

 

Deborah has always loved to travel and when she found herself suddenly divorced aged 50, her response was to go it alone. It was scary, fabulous, and empowering, in equal measure, and she was instantly hooked.  As a solo female traveller over the age of 50, a huge and growing demographic, Deborah felt ignored by the travel industry. This prompted her to create Solo In Style with the idea of connecting like-minded women to encourage and support one another with their solo travels.  Alongside a successful 30-year career in marketing, fine wine & culinary arts, Deborah, now aged 63, continues to expand Solo in Style globally to support and encourage as many women as possible to fulfil their solo travel ambitions.

Terms and Conditions and Answers

 

We are truly looking forward to hosting our wonderful Solo In Style members in Mallorca!  There is some important information to note before we get to the fun part.  Please read our terms and conditions below, as well as our Q&A, as it is your responsibility to be entirely aware of our policies and what to expect.

Physical Ability and Health Requirements

Our events have a great deal of walking to best explore and enjoy each location.  There will be hills and stairs and cobblestones, and it is entirely possible that we may walk 2-5 miles per day, spending many hours on our feet.  We require all guests to have a base level of fitness that allows them to do that.  We will provide plenty of downtime for rest and recovery, you are welcome to skip a day, and we are able to book massage treatments.  However, we ask that you be cognizant of the itinerary and all that you will experience prior to registering for our event.

If you have special health issues or take medications, we ask that you advise us prior to registering for our event so that we can ensure there are no red flags and that you are a good fit for the planned itinerary.

Booking Flights 

Flights should not be booked until we approve your registration and application.  We will also require a minimum number of participants to officially launch our event.  Once that number is reached, we will alert you, no later than 3 months prior to travel.

Methods of Payment

At this time we are only accepting bank transfers in EURO.  If you are converting from another currency, we recommend a company like WISE or REVOLUT as a low fee and  way to pay.  Or perhaps you prefer to contact your bank and arrange to pay directly from your bank account.

  • July 1, 2024 is when the balance of your payment is due.

Application Process

Our goal is always to ensure the best possible experience for our guests.  Because of this, our process is to ask you to be very sure that the itinerary is suited to your preferences.  You then RSVP, fill out our application form, pay your deposit, and schedule a one-on-one call so we can get to know each other.  This process is not only FUN, it is also designed to ensure that every guest has a spectacular experience.

Weather in Mallorca in November

November is truly the perfect month for enjoyment as it is not too hot and not too cold.  Temperatures are between 60-75 degrees fahrenheit during the day (15-24 celcius), and 50-60 in the evenings (10-15).  Dining al fresco with a sweater or scarf is very common.  November is also the month of so many harvests ... grapes, olives, mushrooms.

Maximum Group Size

We accept just 12 women per event.

Eligible to Attend

This trip is exclusively for Solo in Style members ... women 50+ years of age with a brilliant outlook on life, who love to travel and want to meet like-minded as well as diverse women.

Pack List

A pack list will be sent to every guest prior to travel.  Casual clothing throughout, comfortable walking footwear, swimwear for the pool and spa, and workout gear (if participating).  The pack list will be much more detailed.

Room Selection

All rooms are private with private bathroom, for maximum comfort and a bit of solo time.  They are each uniquely beautiful in layout and decor ... reserved on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED basis.  The earlier you reserve your spot and pay your deposit, the more choices you’ll have.

Room Sharing

Solo In Style is exactly that ... your room is just for you.  All rooms are solo occupancy with private bathrooms.  Some are on the ground floor, some are on the top floor, some have balconies, etc. Rooms are reserved on a FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED basis, based on when your deposit was received.

Mandatory Travel Insurance

Solo in Style requires each guest to purchase full personal travel insurance for the duration of the trip.  It's the safest and best way to travel.  We will ask for proof of insurance prior to the event and reserve the right to deny any participant who has not obtained this.  Any fees paid towards the event will be non-refundable.

Dietary Requirements

Most requirements are possible, although pure vegan and gluten free may be limited.  When booking restaurants, we will be sure to give them a heads up with regard to your preferences.  

Photos and Videos

One of the most fun aspects of any travel event is the photos and videos taken.  We provide a shared folder where everyone can drop and download media.  We will also share our best footage.  Guests are welcome to post these images on social media.  You may not sell or otherwise use any of the images taken by us or our photographers and videographers or other guests for commercial purposes.  When registering for our event you agree and acknowledge that your image and likeness may be used in future promotional material, by both Solo In Style, and our partner companies.  We only use the "good ones" where everyone looks great!  If you prefer not to be photographed or to appear in any videos, please let us know ahead of time.  

Waiver

Please be prepared to sign a ‘Waiver of Responsibility’ form before you begin your tour. This form is an understanding that all guests need to exercise judgement and care at all times to ensure their own safety and that of their fellow travelers.

Airport Transfers

Upon arrival to Mallorca it is quick and easy and inexpensive to grab a taxi.  You'll be on your way to the hotel within minutes of exiting the airport.  Prior to travel, we will all share flight details so that perhaps you can ride with a fellow guest.  Your taxi back to the airport will be scheduled for you.  These rides are approximately 30 minutes each and the total cost is around 100 euro ... you may pay via credit card or euro.

Alcohol and Other Substances

Spain is known for its wine and gin.  If you plan to drink, we ask you to do so responsibly.  The idea is to enjoy, but not to become inebriated.  Drugs and illegal substances will never be tolerated.

Covid Measures and Requirements

Solo in Style will ask all guests to follow the requirements of travel to Spain at the time of the event. There are currently no COVID requirements to enter Spain.  As this is unpredictable, we will make a final decision just prior to the event.  We are unable to provide refunds if you are denied entry because of failure to comply with the COVID-19 requirements of any destination we visit. 

Force Majeure

In case of a Force Majeure event, we are not responsible for performing our obligations and will not be responsible for any resulting damages.  A Force Majeure Event is any circumstances beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation acts of nature, terrorist activities, insurrection, explosion, flood, earthquake, tempest, forceful wind, fire or accident, war or threat of war declared or undeclared, sabotage, civil disturbance, labor strikes, requisition, pandemics, sickness, quarantine, government intervention, weather conditions, and unforeseen circumstances.  If we, and/or our partners or agents, are affected by a Force Majeure Event, we, and/or our partners or agents, may vary or cancel any itinerary or activity without any obligation or liability.
