Single Parent Holidays and Solo Holidays 2021

Latest Coronavirus / COVID-19 Travel Update [12-1-2021 – ski news]

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 in the UK or abroad! 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 almost 15 years now.

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. Most of our families are from the UK and Ireland, but we also have English speaking families from abroad joining us regularly. Just choose from our range of 4-star single parent beach breaks, activity holidays, farm stays and ski holidays and organise your own travel. 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.

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 organise all aspects of your single parent holiday, even before you have arrived at the resort. After all, we want you to have an have a hassle-free time in the knowledge that everything is taken care of. Whether you want an active holiday in the mountains, head to the sun for some well-deserved downtime and a little luxury, or discover farm life in Italy, 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 2021 include many 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 2021 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 4-star 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 to recharge their batteries and enjoy some me-time at some point? 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 or join us on one of our solo ski trips in Austria.

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

"I went away with SPOH to Croatia with Lucas (9) and Lottie (5) for my first trip since the separation. Everything was made stress free from the very beginning, enquiries, booking and then arrival and during the stay. Sandra and Jacob at the resort were always on hand to answer questions, offer support and their organisation of trips and activities was second to none. The kids had the most amazing time and due to the set up immediately had friends to talk with and play and there were adults for me to talk to all the time.
I would certainly recommend a trip with SPOH to anyone. "

− Lee, Lucas (9) and Lottie (5) - single parent beach holiday to Croatia, August 2017

"I booked this holiday at a very last minute and got a bit anxious before leaving as I did not know what to expect ... what can I say? It was such a great surprise: excellent staying, super food, fantastic people to share the holiday with. My child and I had a blast, made nice friends and we are already thinking about booking our next SPOH break :-)"

− Laura & Francesco (6) - single parent farm holiday in Magredi, July 2019

"Friendly hotel with lovely pool and excellent food. We enjoyed the mix of activities especially the cooking and the tour around the farm."

− Catherine with Rufus (12), Edmund (10) & Jasper (7) - single parent farm holiday in Magredi, August 2017

"Magredi was simply amazing! It had everything...the city, the mountains, the farm and the pool. The children were never bored, had a fantastic time making friends and joining in the activities and the parents actually got a real holiday! The location is sublime, the food is excellent (even as a picky vegetarian!). The organisers were fabulous and part of our group. I made some wonderful friendships and I wouldn't hesitate to repeat the experience over and over again. "

− Lisa & Lara (6) - single parent farm holiday in Magredi, August 2017

"Thank you both so much for looking after us so well. I felt as if every burden had been lifted and for the first time as a single parent on holiday was able to fully relax and enjoy myself. The hotel was lovely and as Ivo was so happy with his new friends, I got to chat with mine too, and even read a few books and doze in the sun. A terrific holiday and I look forward to going with you again…"

− Amanda & Ivo - single parent beach holiday in Crete, August 2007

"Yet another great holiday, fantastically well organised by Sandra - once more we had a fabulous time. "

− Richard & Henry (15) - single parent ski holiday in Reith/Kitzbühel, February 2019

"Thank you so much for a fantastic holiday. It was a wonderfully well organised, fun holiday. My kids loved it and I got some me time."

− Ruth, Harry (13) & Sophie (11) (Val Gardena, February 2014)

"Having just divorced a year ago I was anxious about going away on my own. I was recommended SPOH. The process was well organised and the activities were great for my daughter Lucy, aged 14. The accommodation was clean the pool was good as not too deep for the children. Would definitely go again."

− Vicky & Lucy (14) - single parent farm holiday in Magredi, July 2018

"This was the first time I have gone on a group holiday of any sort and I was a little apprehensive. Also my son is 13 almost 14 and I was concerned that the other children were quite a bit younger and he might feel a bit left out. I shouldn’t have worried. I can honestly say that this was the best holiday I have ever been on. The activities were plentiful and exhilarating and the Adults and equally the children were absolutely lovely. Daniela played a large part in making us all feel comfortable and organised everything extremely efficiently."

− Maureen & Peter (13) - single parent activity holiday in Alpendorf, August 2011

"My children came home saying Magredi was the best holiday ever. They keep asking when they can see their new friends again. The setting was beautiful, the family who run Magredi were so welcoming and kind and we all enjoyed both the activities on offer and hanging out by the pool. The horse riding was a highlight but what I will remember most is the laughs with all the other parents and watching my girls play with the other kids."

− Anna & children aged 9 & 8 - single parent farm holiday in Magredi, August 2016
