Group holidays for single parent families:

Are you a single parent tired of travelling alone with your children? Join other single mums and single dads and their kids by going on a single parent group holiday! Whether you are bereaved, separated, divorced or a solo parent by choice – you will meet like-minded single mums and single dads on our one parent holidays, which have been a great success for 15 years.

Spend your holidays with other solo families at carefully selected family-friendly hotels, relax and let us worry about the details: One of Single Parents on Holiday’s team members will be at the resort, organising every aspect of your single parent family holiday, so you can have a hassle-free time in the knowledge that everything is taken care of. If you holiday with us, you won’t feel out of place as everyone is a single mum or single dad. Just choose from our range of 4-star single parent beach breaks, activity holidays, farm stays and ski holidays. Book your solo family trip with the leading tour operator in the UK for single parent holidays since 2005.

Group holidays for singles 40+:

Due to popular demand from parents whose children have grown up, we are now offering holidays for adults only, complementing our single with kids holidays. Our solo trips are ideal for singles, single parents whose kids are away or grown up and anyone whose partner can’t or won’t travel: There are many reasons why people seek company on holiday. If you think a group holiday might be for you, and you want to put your feet up and let others organise, then our solo holidays will be a great fit. Your Single Parents on Holiday host will be your tour guide and organise every aspect of your trip, allowing you to focus on discovering new destinations, enjoying adult company and recharging your batteries with other solo travellers in their 40s, 50s and 60s. Let us take care of everything else!

Our single parent family and solo holidays are financially protected. Find out more here: financial failure protection.

Holidays for single parents – the concept:

Unlike big tour operators, we offer holidays exclusively for single parents and their kids because we know what it’s like to travel on your own and feel like the odd one out amongst traditional two-parent families! So, don’t travel alone ! Spend your single parent family holidays in a group of like-minded single mums and dads at carefully selected family friendly star-rated hotels – and you won’t need to worry about organising a thing: For your peace, of mind a Single Parents on Holiday team member will spend the week with our single parents and will have organised all aspects of your single parent holiday before you have even arrived at the resort, so you can have a hassle-free time in the knowledge that everything is taken care of. Whatever your situation, whether you want to get back to nature and spend as much of your holiday outdoors, we are confident that one of our single parent family holidays is the perfect match for you.

Holidays with a touch of luxury:

As usual, our single parent holidays 2020 include 4-star hotels and superior 4-star hotels that offer a touch of luxury. Whether you love a bit of pampering and are looking for a hotel with an amazing spa and kids club, or you just want to put your feet up and let others organise (that’s what we are best at!), our single parent holidays 2020 programme has some beautiful hotels where you can treat yourself and the kids to a little bit of luxury. And you don’t even need to go to the other side of the planet as our beach and activity holiday destinations are only a short flight away. Travel with Single Parents on Holiday for the best single parent holidays for UK solo parents.

Single parent ski holidays 2021:

If you have ever skied or snowboarded, you will know that it’s not much fun to be alone on the slopes whilst the kids are at ski school. With this in mind, we have designed a range of fabulous single parent ski holidays that run in all the school holidays, starting at Christmas and finishing at Easter. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced skier, we will make your single parent holiday as hassle free as possible by arranging your safe return transfer from the airport to the hotel, organising your lift passes, hire equipment and ski lessons. Naturally, our team members will stay with our group throughout the week. They will check that our single mums, dads and kids are happy with their lessons and offer ski guiding for the intermediate to advanced skiers, so everyone has company on and off the slopes. Our 4-star family hotels are either right by the piste or within a short shuttle distances from the slopes.

Solo holidays for single parents without kids:

So, what do you do when the kids are staying with your ex, or have fled the nest? Whatever your situation, who doesn’t dream of a break away from the kids some time, to recharge their batteries and enjoy some me time? We have created a select number of solo holidays for any singles or single parents who are able to travel solo, want a stress-free, fully organised break and don’t want to miss out on adult company on holiday. Check out our beach break in beautiful Croatia this October or join us on one of our solo ski trips in Austria.

Single parent dating:

Online dating for single parents is a convenient and safe way to meet other solo mums and dads for friendship and dating. Join our single parent dating site for free, browse profiles of single parents in the UK and decide in your own time if single parent dating is for you. There is no pressure, it’s easy and secure, and you can be as selective as you like. Best of all, you won’t need a babysitter to get to know the other singles, and there won’t be any judgement as everyone is single with kids.

Holiday Reviews

"Our 8th holiday and 7th year with SPOC, and probably our best trip ever. We have been holidaying with Sandra since my daughter was 7, and even now she’s 15 it’s top of her list every year to book again. Sandra and the small dedicated team of familiar faces, deliver a holiday experience that no other company can ever come close too. With so many repeat travelers in the groups, firm friendships have been made over the years so thank goodness for the Solo trips now, as I was worried my trips with SPOC would be over once my daughter was 18 !"

− Tim & Libby (15) - single parent ski holiday in Obertauern, April 2018

"My daughters and I had an unforgettable holiday in Lanzarote, with the opportunity to see many unique things like the vulcano and to enjoy the beautiful hotel where we were accomodated. At the restaurant of the hotel the food is delicious and the staff is very helpful: even in cases of allergies or intolerances, like in my case, they are still able to offer you delicious and safe food. Andrea was a perfect host and did all her best to make us happy and enjoying our holiday, at the point that the only issue was that the holiday was over too early!"

− Claudia, Marie Rose (16) and Cristelle (14) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2018

"A great holiday, in a high-quality hotel, with an amazing rep and a group of fun people. Highly recommended."

− Rod & Ava (11) - single parent beach holiday in Halkidiki, August 2019

"I was at a loss re what to do with this week I had off from work and it was going to be just me and my daughter. I was surprised by how well organised and thought through everything was. Andrea was brilliant, hotel was brilliant, food, wine tasting, children activities, opera night. I can not fault any aspect except the holiday came to an end! I made some lovely friends and will be returning to the holiday/company/meet up all the friends. Thank you Andrea and Sandra."

− Sudha & Naina (6) - single parent farm holiday in Magredi, July 2018

"For our first skiing trip together, for myself and my 2 teenagers we needed our hands holding. I also didn’t want to be a single parent amongst all the other 2 parent happy families. So I took a leap of faith after reading the website closely and a couple of phone calls (to what turned out to be the efficient and lovely Sandra) and booked our first skiing holiday. Always another adult to talk to. Kids for yours to mix with. A hand to hold and guide you at the resort, not the hand of a paid rep, but the owner of the company at the hotel who really cares and whose business and livelihood is affected if they get it wrong. The holiday turned out to have other first time participants also taking the same leap of faith as me, but more importantly a significant contingent who were returning 2nd 3rd and 4th times such was the success of their previous holidays. Need I say more? Happy returning customers!!"

− Wendy, Cameron (17) & Hannah (15) - single parent ski holiday in Schladming, April 2012

"My daughter and I enjoyed a trip of a lifetime to Magredi in the beautiful and very rural Friulian Dolomites area of Italy. I chose the holiday because it was recommended by a friend and because it felt there was a great balance of activities that we would both enjoy like enjoying the delights of the farm amidst the beauty of the mountain and lakes, while being able to have time out at the pool and first class horse-riding facilities. For us adults there were also nice touches like wine tasting.
We had never experienced a holiday with a similar group of single parents, and were a little nervous over what to expect. However, we need not be concerned. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed by both our fabulous and very organised rep for the week, Andrea, and the rest of the group. Within hours we were all chatting away and making friends. Violet absolutely loved having a big group of kids to hang around with and enjoyed the freedom of being able to amble around the farm without adult supervision at all times. Being able to ride a horse every day was a dream come true for her, and she came home a competent rider.
My daughter enjoyed all the range of activities on offer, and while she would happily be in the pool all day, relished the chance to pick fruit to then make into jam, take a horse and tractor ride around the farm, and arts and craft mornings.
It was fabulous not having to make decisions over what we were going to do each day, that it was all organised for us, and that we just had to turn up. That made it relaxing for us adults and it was nice also not having to cook! It was also great that you knew there as always a parent on hand to keep an eye on your child if you needed some time out.
Single Parents on Holiday are a very professional outfit, who take a very individual and personal approach to ensuring you have a fantastic, and easy holiday to make memories to last a lifetime. I will be recommending to all my friends looking to take a similar holiday.

− Sharon & Violet (8) - single parent farm holiday in Magredi, July 2018

"Just a short note to say thank you for providing such a lovely holiday destination. The food at the hotel was amazing. The ski slopes were perfect for Melissa who is now very confident and wants to go again. My muscles ache but I found the location breathtaking and made some good friends."

− Marilyn & Meliisa (11) (Alpendorf skiing holiday, Feb 09)

"Sandra and Andrea truly believe in going the extra mile. Nothing is too much trouble for them, and the quality and value of their holidays reflect the effort and care that they put into them. They are, without doubt, in a league of their own."

− Paul, Alice (11) & Daisy (10) (Alpendorf winter sports holiday, February 2011)

"My son and I had a fantastic time and it is one holiday we will truly remember. You wake up to spectacular scenery and you can continue to enjoy the views from the rooftop infinity pool. The hotel facilities are first class and the mini club caters for children of all ages. We loved all the varied activities and hikes that were on offer on this holiday to Alpendorf, which were all organised by our wonderful guide, Daniela."

− Donna & Amaar (11) - single parent activity holiday in Alpendorf, August 2016

"We had a great holiday in Ramsau. There were lots of fun activities to do together – rafting, tandem flying, walking etc. We had some rain while we were there and Daniella, our group leader, juggled everything very efficiently so that we hardly noticed. Being in a group and having a helpful leader enabled us to do things that we wouldn’t have been able to do if I had taken the children on holiday on my own."

− Catherine, Rufus (10), Edmund (8) & Jasper (5) - single parent activity holiday in Ramsau, July 2015
