I'm hoping to go away this summer to somewhere like Ibiza or Ayia Napa but don't know anyone who has the money too, I really want a party/clubbing holiday, anyone up for it?

You'll hugely increase the chances of getting a response here or on any other internet forum if you give your age group (a 27-year-old probably won't want a party holiday with an 18-year-old), the country you're based in and a very rough idea of your budget (e.g. hostel or hotel?).

I think you have a greater chance of finding a traveling companion from your local area. (Wherever that is.)

From your sign in name you could be male or female. A little more info from you might improve your chances of a finding someone to meet up with or fly with you.

I'm a 20 year old female from Bristol UK and hoping to keep the budget to a minimum but looking at hotels, thanks for the advice :)

Thanks for that.

Tbh it's as Karazyal says: you'll be better off trying to find a travel buddy in your own area rather than on worldwide internet forums...not to mention the whole iffy safety aspect (and it really *is* iffy). And it's much, much better if you can meet people IRL before making a decision. A holiday spent with someone you don't actually like, whose values clash with yours and/or whose behaviour makes you uncomfortable/angry/anxious will be a thoroughly miserable experience.

Have you asked friends, acquaintances and any similarly-aged family members if they have friends who might be interested?

Have you posted on e.g. FB's Bristol community pages?
