For some time now single parents have been asking us about holiday destinations, resorts and activities that are particularly suited to their circumstances. While many travel agents and hotels often assume that single parents have the same requirements as traditional families, this isn’t so. In fact, there are two main problems potentially facing single parents: money and time.
For single parents on a limited budget, single supplements on holiday packages and hotels rooms can be a burden, and additional childcare adds to the expense. With this in mind, we’ve sought out some cheaper options and made suggestions that will enable you to enjoy a reasonably-priced holiday. But we’re also aware that many single parents these days are skilled professionals who come from affluent households and want quality resorts and facilities for which they’re willing to pay. We reflect this new reality in our wide range of accommodation and holiday suggestions.

How do you get to enjoy the holiday too?
How can you enjoy your kids’ company and still have free time to relax without them?
Here on the website, we show you not only how to have the best holiday with your kids, but how to get away from them, since time alone is another major issue facing single parents. When you’re on holiday you have no partner, family member or trusted baby-sitter to fall back on, and that can sometimes make a trip exhausting. Too often we hear of single parents returning home feeling they haven’t had a holiday at all. We’ve included tips on how to make the most of your getaway by seeking out resorts, cruises, camping adventures and destinations that provide excellent childcare and entertainment for children, ensuring plenty of adult time to pursue your own interests.
Travelling as a single parent doesn’t have to be a chore. While it may seem the whole world is geared towards couples or traditional families, some travel agencies, accommodation providers and cruise companies are beginning to wake up to the realities of modern society and are offering facilities and packages especially aimed at the particular needs of single parents. With this in mind, our new Single Parent section will bring you ongoing advice and suggestions that will enable you to make the most of a holiday for both you and your children. Enjoy!
