Single Parent Holidays and Solo Holidays 2021

Latest Coronavirus / COVID-19 Travel Update [13-4-2021]

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.

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 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 / 2022:

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 from October half term through to 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 singles / 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

"Our holiday on Fuerteventura was really great because of how un commercialised it is as an island and because of the fabulous beaches. It was a little hideaway that we came to love. The group was such fun and our guide became a part of our fun."

− Laura & Daniel (10) (Fuerteventura, August 2013)

"Alpendorf is a great location for this type of holiday, being on a mountain side enjoying fantastic views. The hotel has everything both the kids and adults could want including superb pools, one of them an infinity, a well-run gym with free classes and a wellness area. It’s full-board with the breakfast and dinner being excellent. The lunch is basic but runs for five hours leaving you to catch it before or after your day out; they’ll even make a packed lunch for you too. There are kids rooms and a park with mini golf, cars etc nearby that the kids can spend lots of time in whilst the adults relax in the hotel bar area.
Our guide, Thomas, organised daily activities which ranged from hikes to white-water rafting to tree-walking. My nine year old enjoyed all of these and was about the average age of the kids in the group. We had a large group with 14 adults so the girls and boys formed separate groups but everything worked well with both kids and adults being able to interact with different people during the week. Thomas had a laid-back approach which suited us and we never felt compelled to the activities.
Overall, it was a great week and I would recommend this to any single-parent, especially whose kids enjoy activities."

− Trevyn & Timothy (9) - single parent activity holiday in Alpendorf, July 2018

"The holiday was an ideal choice for my son's first ski holiday - we enjoyed skiing in the morning and then taking advantage of the lovely hotel in the afternoon. The kids' club and the slide from the second floor to the ground floor were a particular hit!"

− Amy & Gabriel (3) (Turrach skiing, April 2016)

"Kristina age 11 - thank you for a lovely holiday. Me and nanny enjoyed ourselves so much. The slides in the salt caves were the best. Water rafting was so much fun and jumping off the rock into the river was very scary and exciting at the same time. I made friends and they are coming to visit us when we get back home.
Nanny age 55 - I was nervous at first, and wondered how I would get on with strangers but I had a lovely time, was never on my own, and watching my granddaughter enjoy herself with the other children was a bonus. The organised trips were very exciting; I especially loved the trek up the mountain and the picnic. We also managed to get some time just the two of us so couldn't have asked for a better holiday. Massive thank you to our 'guide' who was with us at meal times and on the excursions; organising us and making us laugh!"

− Karin & Kristina (11) - single parent activity holiday in Alpendorf, July 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 just wanted to let you know what a brilliant time we had in Alpendorf. Everything far exceeded my expectations, hotel, food, activities, people AND we were very fortunate with the weather. Charlotte had a ball and has slept a lot since we arrived home.
"

− Hope & Charlotte (11) - single parent activity holiday in Alpendorf, August 2011

"Another great SP Holiday, great skiing facilities and great company. We will definitely return for another trip."

− Ali, Charlotte (6) & Ethan (4) - single parent ski holiday in Schladming, April 2010

"A fantastic holiday with everything organised brilliantly to ensure a stress-free and fun experience"

− Richard &Henry (14) - single parent ski holiday in Mayrhofen, April 2018

"My sons and I thoroughly enjoyed our first SPOH holiday in Spoleto. I had half-feared beforehand that it would be one big therapy session for bitter divorced people, but the truth could not be further from that - it is a chance to have fun and share a wonderful part of Italy with a group of like-minded adults with children of a similar age.
The organised activities took my sons out of their normal comfort zone (for example there was quite a lot of walking) but to my pleasant surprise they embraced the challenge, partly because it was fun and partly because they were inspired by the older children. The food at the hotel was really excellent (and I don't say that often), and the staff were happy to serve drinks outside when asked. Claudia did a wonderful job of herding the parents and keeping everyone happy. "

− Patrick, Charlie (7) & Leo (5) - single parent holiday in Umbria, August 2017

"I have booked the skiing holiday to Reith for my daughter and I. The main reason was to ensure other kids will be around for my daughter to play with after skiing and other adults to discuss with for my sanity. We had a fantastic time both on the slopes and in the evening. It was great for my daughter and I to go skiing with other parents & kids of the same level and to be able to retreat to the bar in the evening knowing my daughter was laughing with the other kids. Sandra's organisation was faultless and effortless for us to follow (I am sure it wasn't effortless for her). We enjoyed it so much that we are going to the next trip at Easter."

− F & C (11) - single parent ski holiday in Reith/Kitzbühel, February 2019
