Single Parent Holidays 2019
Family holidays, especially when you are a single parent, can feel like a daunting challenge to organise, but with our selection of fantastic package holiday deals in amazing resorts, and with family-focused themes, we have got the perfect single parent holiday for you and your kids.
Single parent holidays are a wonderful way to spend time with those you love most all year round. The long summer holidays are the time to treat your family to a holiday in the sun, whether it’s somewhere European like lovely Malta, or a more exotic trip to beautiful Morocco (now, that’s a holiday they can brag about at school). The half-term break is an ideal opportunity for families to hop across to Spain’s Costa del Sol or gorgeous Portugal for a refreshing boost of sunshine and fun without any long flights. If you want your family to experience a Christmas in some guaranteed sun, a Canary Island - whether Tenerife or Lanzarote - is the perfect spot for you to enjoy a festive season abroad. Or why not consider something a bit different, like the beautiful Dubrovnik Riviera, sunny and affordable Bulgaria, or one of the pretty low-key resorts in Cyprus?
We’ve got hotels with waterparks and kids clubs, hotels by the beach and resorts with theme parks, all inclusive packages that take away the hassle, and flexible payment options. In short, whatever your family's holiday priorities, we make finding your perfect break easy.
All families deserve fantastic holidays to remember for years to come. We’re here to make sure that single parent families, whether they are made up of mums, dads, toddlers or teens, can find their perfect holiday deal for 2019 and 2019.
