Tips for Single Parent Vacations

It is very difficult to find affordable single parent vacations. The “single supplement” rate makes going on vacation by yourself too expensive. They not only charged you the per person rate, but they tack on an additional 50% to 100% additional as a supplemental fee.

Unfortunately, resorts and hotels usually only offer deals to two parent families. They usually state that one or more kids can stay free when sharing a room with two paying adults. This poses a huge problem for single parent families!

Single mothers or fathers often face other issues too. There are many resorts with kids clubs but a single parent may feel awkward being around so many married couples with their children.

Many resorts now offer deals to single parent families. With these deals out there, there are sure to be other singles with children at these resorts. Problem solved!

Below are a few resorts that recognize being a single parent is not easy and offer deals to go easy on your wallet.
