Solo Group Holidays: Travel with Other Singles

At Single Parents on Holiday we understand that travelling alone is not much fun, or might even seem daunting, especially if you have recently become separated, divorced or widowed. Our solo group holidays are perfect for anyone over 40 who is on their own: singles, single parents whose kids are away, single parent empty nesters, or anyone whose partner cannot travel. Occasionally our solo travellers have partners who don’t ski – for them our solo ski holidays are a perfect match. Whatever your situation, we are confident that one of our solo group holidays is for you.

Discover new destinations in a stress-free way by booking an escorted group holiday for solo travellers: We offer a choice of hand-picked hotels that provide the ideal base for a solo holiday. These hotels offer quality accommodation with all the facilities you need to relax and are conveniently located to explore more of the city and country you are visiting. All our hotels offer double rooms for single occupancy for our solo travellers but if you want to travel with a friend, you could share a room and save yourself a little bit of money each. Check out our escorted solo holidays, especially created for our single parents and anyone else on their own, who is looking for company on holiday:

Why travel with us?

Single Parents on Holiday has been providing stress free holidays for single parents and their children since 2005. Many of our parents have holidayed with us year after year and their children are now growing up. With this in mind, we have introduced solo holidays for anyone travelling on their own without children. Now solo travellers can enjoy the same fantastic group holidays in beautiful locations hosted by a member of our staff as our single parent families have for many years. Here are just some of the benefits of booking a solo holiday with Single Parents on Holiday:

Fully-organised solo holidays

Our solo holidays are fully organised which means one of our team members will be at the resort to arrange airport transfers, greet you at the hotel, make dinner reservations for the group, plan excursions and much more. If you join us on one of our solo ski holidays, our service further includes pre-ordering of lift passes, hire equipment, ski lessons if required, and of course ski guiding just for our friendly group of skiers: After all, solo ski holidays are about company both on and off the piste. A lot of preparation goes into every one of our solo holidays and we pride ourselves in our service which aims to provide the best solo holidays on the market!

Relax and enjoy (and let us do the work)

We all need a break sometimes. From work, the kids, a partner. Nothing is better for the body and soul than a few nights away from it all. Let someone else organise and just go with the flow: The extra time you gain by not having to organise every small detail of your trip, is time you can spend relaxing, de-cluttering your mind and catching up on sleep or pastimes you’ve neglected. Solo holidays truly give you the chance to relax and escape the daily grind for a while whilst offering enjoyable company at the same time.

New friendships

Travelling with like-minded singles of similar age is thoroughly enjoyable, not only because you meet interesting new people outside your set circle of friends and family: We are often told that the best solo holidays are those where you share a unique experience with new friends. In fact, our solo holidays often lead to friendships for life, whilst other times acting as a turning point for anyone feeling low or isolated. Many singles have said that our single parent and solo holidays helped ease them into the next chapter of their lives through the like-minded company, friendship and positivity they encountered.

Self-confidence

Solo holidays are also great for improving your self-confidence because they leave you with a sense of achievement: You have chosen where to go and what to do and made your way there and back on your own. This is not a given when you have always travelled with family or a partner. Meeting new people, putting language skills to use and making your own decisions are just some of the small successes that will leave you feeling more confident and alleviate some of the anxieties you might have developed over time. A group holiday with other solo travellers can be a great first step back to a less-worrying new you.
