Will a family holiday as a solo parent cost more?
Holidays for single parents travelling abroad can cost more. The cost of a single parent travelling on their own with one child can pay up to 28% per person when compared to two adults with one child going on the same holiday. Most of this additional cost is due to single adult supplements for accommodation.
At Explore, we know that no two families are the same and we’ll never charge you for a single room occupancy when you’re travelling as a family. Instead, we’ll do our best to make sure you get a single, twin or triple room depending on your needs.
Make sure you check your eligibility for family travel in the small print before booking your single parent holiday. Child prices apply to varying ages depending on who you are traveling with. Some tour operators charging full price for young people over aged 16 years of age.
On an explore family adventure, a family is defined as having a minimum of two people, with at least one being an adult over the age of 18 and one child under 18. There is no minimum age for child prices because we have a minimum age of travel on our trips. This is because of the active nature of our holidays, we want to make sure that the activities can be enjoyed by everyone on the tour.
