Latest Coronavirus / COVID-19 travel update

[14/09/2020]

Due to ongoing travel restrictions, we are no longer offering any singles or single parent holidays this October. Instead, we are busy preparing for the new ski season and adding UK holidays to our 2021 holiday programme. Our Dartmoor National Park and North Wales trips are already online with more UK breaks to follow. 

Regarding the 2021 ski season, please note that Austria has announced strict safety measures to ensure a successful ski season: Skiers are required to wear face masks or balaclavas in lifts and lift buildings, après-ski bars will operate only with outdoor seating and social distancing and tourism employees will be tested weekly and must wear face masks and gloves when serving food and drinks. Naturally, hotel rooms, common areas, lifts, etc. must be disinfected regularly.

Austria allows UK residents to enter without testing or self-isolation and since quarantine on arrival has never been a requirement, this is not something we anticipate. For current and detailed travel advice for Austria click here.

Please note that we now only have availability on the following single parent holidays this summer:

We also still have availability this autumn:

We hope to see you all again soon, if not in 2020, then in 2021!

Latest Coronavirus / COVID-19 travel update

[18/07/2020]

A small update: We are sorry that we are unable to go ahead with our Cyprus holiday on 22 August due to the continuing travel restrictions imposed by the Cypriot government. All guests booked on this trip have been informed and offered the option to re-book or been issued credit vouchers.

On a positive note, we are happy that our single parent holiday to Crete on 22 August can go ahead! It is no longer necessary for anyone travelling from the UK to quarantine on arrival in Greece, and our hotel ensures us that plenty of flights from the UK have landed without any problems.

So, if you want a last minute holiday abroad, you can choose from the following single parent family holidays:

COVID-19 safety measures: Please note that our hotels have strict health and safety measures in place to protect staff and customers. If you have any questions as to which facilities and services may be affected on your holiday, please contact us

We are very excited that residents in England have finally been given the go ahead to travel to multiple destinations in Europe without need to self-isolate upon return. This means, our single parent holidays to Croatia (15 August) and Italy (22 August) can go ahead. We continue to closely monitor travel updates, in particular, to Greece, including Crete and Cyprus, and are expecting an update for these destinations before, or latest by, 15 July.

COVID-19 safety measures: Please note that our hotels have put strict health and safety measures in place to protect staff and customers. If you have any questions as to which facilities and services may be affected, please contact us. Please note that any COVID-19 safety measures are subject to government regulations and can change at any time.

Regrettably, we now also had to cancel our single parent holidays departing 25 July, 1 August and 8 August. All customers have been informed and new 2020/21 dates have already been published for these holidays allowing customers to re-book if they wish. Our Fuerteventura holiday, which was due to depart on 1 August, is now taking place in the October half term (24-31/10), and any single parents whose summer holiday has been cancelled can transfer to that holiday.

We are very much hoping that our single parent holidays to Magredi, Croatia, Crete and Cyprus later on in August 2020 can go ahead. To this end, we continue to closely monitor travel updates, in particular air corridor negotiations. We will be in touch with anyone who has booked or enquired about a single parent holiday for this summer, as soon as we know more.

With our best wishes,

Sadly there is much uncertainty around travel this summer.  We are closely monitoring the situation both in the UK and in our summer destinations and are hoping that travel restrictions for UK holiday makers will be lifted and that we will be able to run some of our 2020 single parent holidays.

Naturally, should travel restrictions prevent our single parent holidays from going ahead, we will contact you as soon as we know, to offer you alternatives such as transferring your deposit payment to a later date in 2020 or 2021.

In the meantime, we wish all our customers well. Remember if you have the lock down blues, we are here to help:

We would like to reassure all our customers that we are continuing to closely monitor the situation regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) around the world.

We are in contact with all our single parent families and solo travellers who have been affected by the closure of hotel and ski resorts in Austria and/or the FCO’s updated travel advice for Austria. If anyone is waiting for a reply from us, please bear with us for just a few days, as we are currently dealing with a high volume of emails, as is everyone else. This is a challenging time for the travel industry, but we will get through this together and come out stronger the other end.

Stay healthy and in good spirits!
