About Us

Single Parents on Holiday was founded in 2005 by Andrea Robinson, a single parent in full-time employment, and Sandra Martinz-Lywood, a working mum who was looking for a new challenge having set up and run her own business for many years. Frustrated with the lack of quality holidays available for single parents and their children, they founded Single Parents on Holiday from their home. It began as, and has remained, a very personal project for Andrea and Sandra.

Our single parent holidays: We aim to provide high quality and luxury holidays for single mums and single dads who seek a nice break with their kids but do not want to travel on their own, be it because they value companionship for themselves and friends for their children or because travelling alone with the kids is a lonely, if not daunting, prospect.

Our solo holidays: Many of our parents told us that, with their children grown up and going on their own adventures, they missed the fun and friendship our single parent holidays offered. We listened and created a range of solo holidays for them and any singles or anyone lacking travel buddies. Check out our quality short breaks and our annual ski holiday: solo holidays

There are many other reasons to book with Single Parents on Holiday:

Peace of Mind: Escorted Group Holidays

Not only will you benefit from the company of other single parent families (or solo travellers if you choose a solo holiday), but you will also have a totally hassle-free holiday if you book with us. We organize your holiday months in advance and every detail is carefully checked before your departure. In addition, both our single parent holidays and solo holidays are accompanied by a member of our team, who arrives ahead of time to ensure everything is in place for the group’s arrival. He/she will spend the week with the group, welcome you at the hotel, introduce you to the other guests and organize daily activities, dinners and much more to make sure you have a relaxed and memorable holiday.
