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 holiday 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.

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!

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! If you travel with us, you will 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 the 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.

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.

Holiday Reviews

"I have just returned from a weeks holiday in Kos with an amazing group of like minded parents. My daughter had fun and made many new friends who we intend keeping in contact with and whom we’d love to meet up with again on another Single Parents holiday. I laughed for the whole week and met so many lovely people - I can honestly say it was one of the best holidays that I have ever been on.
Our host was available and helpful at all times but also allowed us valuable space to relax. Activities were available if we wanted to take part however we were at no point pressured into taking part."

− Gaynor & Freya (13) - single parent beach holiday in Kos, August 2018

"My son and I have just returned from a trip to Marrakesh and wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we had. It goes without saying the weather was fantastic; so lovely to leave a cold and wet Britain and travel to warmth and sunshine. The hotel was all inclusive so, as expected, we got the usual bounteous buffet for breakfasts and three course lunches and dinners, but, what I hadn’t anticipated was that the hotel snack bar would continue to provide food and drinks throughout the day without additional charge. “Snacks” ranged from freshly made pizzas, burgers, chips and pancakes and both alcoholic and soft drinks were served. The pizzas and pancakes made my son particularly happy! The hotel also had a wide range of facilities, including crazy golf, tennis, table tennis, boules, indoor and outdoor pools, football and volley ball! Enough to keep us entertained for the whole week even if we didn’t feel inclined to do any of the day trips. That said our guided adventures to the souks, the mountains and a very memorable dromedary ride were colourful and informative. Some of the families got into the real spirit of bartering. The two guides, Mustafa and Kamel, were wonderfully friendly and attentive. They kept an eye on the children, even whilst at the hotel, and joined in in playing crazy golf and table tennis. My son now wants a table tennis set after the tuition they gave him! The guides were also very flexible in changing trips or dates for trips to suit the families. As usual, with a SPoH holiday, I also got the chance to meet and make friends with the other families and we all got on so well we hope to meet on another holiday soon. So thanks again SPoH."

− Corinne and Rhys (aged 8) (Marrakesh, October 2013)

"“I liked the food very much and the activities were very fun.” (Jude) “This was one of the best holidays I’ve had. The hotel was lovely and in a perfect location, the food was unusually good and the company was excellent.” (Marcella)"

− Jude (12) & Marcella (Halkidiki holiday, August 2010)

"We had an excellent time in Magredi, it was such fun but also relaxing. Our host was great and the staff at the hotel made us feel so special. The activities were great fun, the children loved exploring the farm & it was a perfect setting for relaxation. I highly recommend this holiday. "

− Elaine, Ellisia (10) & Eleanor (8) - single parent farm holiday in Magredi, July 2016

"Jack and I had a fabulous time on the holiday. Was great for Jack to have other children to enjoy the experiences with, and I loved being able to talk to other grown ups. Thomas was a wonderful host and nothing was too much trouble for him."

− Unity & Jack (9) - single parent activity holiday in Alpendorf, August 2019

"Annie’s 1st ski holiday (and our 1st with SPOH) was out of this world! Any reservations I had about taking my 4 year old were gone within the 1st 24 hours. Nothing was too much trouble, the holiday was everything I hoped it would be. Delicious food, great company, fun skiing, life-long memories! Roll on 2016"

− Lindsay & Annie (4) - single parent ski holiday in the Ziller Valley, March 2015

"Thank you Sandra and Ian for a really fabulous holiday. It was lovely to be so well looked after for our week and to have someone to guide us all over the ski area. You made sure everyone could ski with others of similar ability/ages of children and there were plenty of activities for anyone with enough energy left at the end of the day!"

− Lynn & Joshua (13) - single parent ski holiday in Reith/Kitzbühel, February 2020

"We had another wonderful SPOH holiday this year. Its just so lovely to have other parents around to keep you sane, and make you laugh as you share stories of bringing up your children (amongst other things!)... and to see the children become friends and play together"

− Emily, Harrison (9) & Brodie (5) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2019

"I asked my daughter how she would describe our holiday in Lanzarote and she said ‘fabulous’. I totally agree. Sandra is a wonderful host and, alongside the super clean and comfortable hotel, the all-inclusive deal with great food and drinks, the lovely swimming pools and, of course, the good company of other families, this proved to be a really great holiday. We loved our camel ride, the trip to Rancho Texas zoo, the beach with pedalos and banana boats, walking along the seafront to the marina, visiting Teguise market and cruising in the glass bottomed boat – all great fun. Many thanks once again."

− Beccy & Lily (9) - single parent beach holiday in Lanzarote, August 2012

"This holiday won very high marks from my two children aged 9 and 17. My young son was delighted to find lots of other children to play with (before, during and after skiing) – which in itself added to my own enjoyment and opportunity to relax. Any doubts about joining a group of strangers quickly evaporated when I made new friends within seconds of walking into the bar on the first night! The shared experience of being a single parent proved a strong bond, and although we were from different walks of life the thing we had in common – a desire to enjoy adult company while spending time with our children – ensured a sociable, fun and very memorable holiday.
The Single Parents on Holiday formula works very well and I would go again. We were excellently looked after by Sandra and Daniela, always on hand and keen to ensure we achieved what we wanted from the holiday."

− Marian, Alexandra (17) & Charles (9) - single parent ski holiday in Schladming, April 2012
