What we do:
Our aim is to provide a group experience so you meet people your age with shared interests and to take the stress and worry out of your holiday. After all, you work hard all year round and want to enjoy your well-deserved singles holiday in like-minded company. To ensure our solo travellers can relax, one of our team members, your host for the singles holiday, stays with our group throughout their holiday. He or she arranges airport transfers, greets everyone at the hotel and pre-organises day trips, activities and dinner reservations. Your host also makes sure you have the option to spend time with your new holiday companions or enjoy some time on your own. There is absolutely no group pressure.
Why book a singles holidays in your 50s
When we reach our 50s we often feel more content and enriched than when we were partying away in our 20s. We know what we want. We have a treasure chest of valuable experiences. Travelling in your 50s offers a world of opportunities. We choose where to go and what to do on holiday.
If you have children, they are probably grown up now and living independent lives. In our 50s, we have achieved a certain standard of living and feel like this is our time: We want to focus on ourselves and enjoy life. We also have more time as we no longer juggle work and bringing up young children, and we have less financial pressure than in our 30s and 40s. So now is our time to go to interesting and new destinations, with other travellers of our own age.
Joining a group holiday for singles over 50 is a new experience for many, but we can assure you that it is the best choice you can make. People are friendlier than you might expect and you can enjoy the company of other travellers of your age, exchange life experiences and make new friends. You might have spent the last 20 years travelling with your children and putting your children’s needs first. And let’s face it, most children are not interested in extensive sightseeing and you cannot embark on a wine tasting evening in the company of young children. So now is the time to visit all the places you always wanted to see and join all the activities and cultural offerings that will have been unsuitable on a holiday with young children.
1. Over 50s holidays are hassle-free
We organise your holiday. All you have to do is book your flight and board. You will be picked up from your destination airport and we take care of everything else for the rest of the week. A member of our team will host the holiday, arrange group dinners, activities, and excursions and will be there to help at all times. Just imagine arriving at your ski resort and your ski equipment is pre-booked, your lessons pre-arranged and even better, your host guides you on the piste with great knowledge of the ski region? It saves much of your precious time.
2. We hand-pick your hotel
We know what our guests in their 50s need. Many of our hosts are in their 50s and know what makes a successful holiday for this age group.

Everything solo travellers and singles in their 50s need to have a pleasurable holiday experience.

3. Tailor-made holidays for you
We spend months planning and preparing every aspect of our singles holidays to ensure that they run smoothly for you on holiday. On our city and weekend breaks, we offer a sightseeing programme with a local tour guide to allow you to get to know your destination and benefit from the local knowledge of our tour guides. On our beach breaks, we supplement time at the pool and beach with some interesting excursions and activities, such as boat trips and tours of the surrounding area; and on our ski holidays, we pre-organize equipment hire, ski lessons, offer ski guiding and other winter sports activities, such as tobogganing and ice curling.
4. A little bit of luxury at 50
When you are in your 50s you are past the age of basic accommodation, such as hostels or camping sites, and sharing facilities, such as a bedroom or bathroom. You want to have your own comfortable hotel room where you can relax and read a book after dinner, or soak in the bath in your own ensuite bathroom after an active day sunbathing, exploring or skiing. At Single Parents on Holiday, we understand your needs. That is why we want to offer luxury holidays for singles over 50, with all the luxuries of an upmarket hotel, such as a beautiful pool, a spa for pampering, and food that tantalises your taste buds. Best of all, whilst you are enjoying a little bit of luxury and the company of other solo travellers in their 50s on holiday, we will organise every aspect of your holiday, so that you can feel truly relaxed and pampered.
5. Company of other singles in their 50s

It is a great chance to meet other travellers in their 40s, 50s, and 60s with similar interests. It also allows you to get to know your fellow travellers in a relaxed environment enjoy new experiences together and form new friendships that might last a lifetime.
