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

"Danielle, who was our host made sure everything was organised for the children's activities which were wonderful. They made pasta, biscuits, created mosaics, went horse-riding (extra cost), rode on a horse and cart and more. Unfortunately, myself and my daughter missed the trip to Venice because we arrived two days late, but we visited a beautiful lake where the children played in a park and took a little walk to the ice-cream shop. Afterwards, we had time to stop off in an old town for lunch on the way back. The parents all quickly bonded and had a great time together chatting with the occasional glass of wine. "

− Sylvie & Eva (19) - single parent farm holiday in Magredi, May 2019

"My daughter and I are just back from one of the best holidays that we have been on. The setting was beautiful, the weather was fantastic and the food was amazing. The family were lovely, very passionate and so accommodating that you relaxed into the lifestyle within minutes of arriving. The activities were great fun and there was plenty of other facilities to keep the kids occupied (bikes, pool, horse riding and animals). We met some great families and as a first experience I will be back."

− Ollie & Heather (9) - single parent farm holiday in Magredi, August 2015

"Well organised holiday in lovely hotel with great views and large pool that never felt crowded. Food in main restaurant was excellent. Barely saw my children all week as they were having so much fun with other children on the holiday. Climate perfect as there was always a cool sea breeze. Would definitely recommend both Kos and SPOH."

− Catherine, Joe (16), Harry (13) & Tilly (7) (Kos, August 2013)

"I would recommend this type of holiday to any single parent, my kids loved the farm and activities, I particularly enjoyed being with other parents in similar situations. The balance of activities and time to chill was just right, out host was amazing and I honestly felt 10 years younger by the end of the week."

− Sandi, Bryn (11) & Beth (7) - single parent farm holiday in Magredi, May 2019

"Alpendorf proved to be the best week skiing ever!!
Both my children Harry 16 and Sophie-Rose 14 are already asking me to book again for next year. The venue was perfect, beautiful views, fantastic slopes. The hotel felt luxurious and friendly. Sandra's organisation was seamless so that I could really relax and Tennessee's sense of fun and superb skiing ability made the holiday really enjoyable. The other parents and children on the holiday were so friendly, welcoming and fun that it made the whole holiday an overwhelming success. Thank you."

− Ruth, Harry (16) & Sophie-Rose (14) - single parent ski holiday in Alpendorf, February 2017

"It couldn't be any better! The kids and I had an absolutely brilliant time. Great company, lovely organisation, very smooth and warm and everything is made so easy by Sandra. The best holiday we've had, thank you."

− Annelies, Lexie (11) & Lucas (9) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, February 2018

"Edward and I had a wonderful time on this holiday in Lanzarote – we didn’t want to come home! We were very well looked after by Andrea who was so sweet and friendly and organized everything really efficiently. The people we met were lovely and we enjoyed great times by the pool and in the bar in the evenings. Edward really enjoyed the company of the other children too. We also enjoyed some great excursions, including the National Park with camel ride, fire mountain and crater tour, Rancho Texas, a banana boat ride on the beach and a visit to the local market to buy our souvenirs. The hotel was a great choice of accommodation, comfortable, friendly and a fantastic choice of wonderful food. We do hope to go on another holiday with Single Parents on Holiday soon as we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Lanzarote. Thank you SPOH for a great time."

− Janice & Edward (9) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2012

"I could not recommend Alpendorf summer break highly enough. Myself and my 4/almost 5 year old daughter had a great week. There was plenty of company for us both – a lovely rapport within the group. Our “leader” Daniela was simply great – she facilitated everyone and ensured all went smoothly without ever dominating the group. Meals with separate adult and children tables (which evolved quite naturally!) were very welcome – it meant both children and parents had breathing space! We were blessed with weather in Aug 2012 and it will go down as my first real holiday since my daughter was born in that I was not responsible for organisation and decisions etc. A no brainer for a single parent looking for a nice break and a change of scene. Activities suitable for all ages of children – something for everyone from lake trips to paragliding and rafting for the more adventurous. Food was very good and varied. Hotel is beautiful – family feel – small. Our room had a great view and was tastefully furnished in alpine style etc. Can say no more than that!"

− Anita & Grace (4) - single parent activity holiday in Alpendorf, August 2012

"Excellent resort in Greece, service, facilities, staff, food, happy to stay there again. Thanks for organising."

− Minoo, Ben (15), Lauren (12) & Jack (6)(Halkidiki holiday, October 2015)

"This was the first time I’d been away on an organised trip with my 6 year-old. We had a fantastic time and I can now see the advantages of someone else doing all the organising! It was a great mix of skiing during the day but enough time to relax and enjoy the facilities in the afternoons and evenings. Sandra and Daniela were fabulous hosts and couldn’t have been more helpful throughout the trip. Miriam looked after the little ones in the evenings and she was a very caring and patient childminder. Everyone was really friendly and we felt at home in the group straight away. Would I do another holiday? Can’t wait!"

− Maria & Nelisha - single parent ski holiday in the Ziller Valley, February 2013
