Single Parent Holidays
You’ve seen all the photos of our lovely single parent holidays,you’ve perhaps read the great reviews…this is the heavy stuff that most people avoid. Our single parent holidays booking terms are fairly standard for but we always recommend you reading the terms and important information before reserving places on your holiday with us:
Your contract with Single With Kids Ltd is made once the following steps have been made. A) You have paid the required deposit B) Single With Kids Ltd has confirmed your holiday booking. Your contract commences on the date of issue of your receipt. It is important you check your receipt carefully and raise any queries immediately. Your contract with Single With Kids Ltd is governed under English law and is subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
Single With Kids Ltd reserves the right to cancel, or to refuse to accept any booking at any time.
Holiday Deposit Payment
A deposit is required to confirm your booking, usually a minimum of 30% of the total holiday price, however we do occasionally vary this depending on the holiday – you can check the deposit for your holiday are Overseas deposits are non-refundable or transferable.
Early Booking Guarantees
If you book your overseas holiday when an early booking discount applies, this will always guarantee you will pay the best price for your holiday. If the price of the holiday later decreases to less than you have paid, we will lower your holiday price to match this. The saving will automatically be applied to your balance payment. If the price of the holiday increases, yours will stay the same. By booking early you also get a better choice of flights with lower or no supplements.
Holiday Balance Payment
We will inform you via email to request the final balance and will provide a payment link for your convenience. Payment may be made by cash, debit card or credit card.
Balances must be paid promptly – we’re not a licensed credit agency unfortunately and cannot offer credit terms.
UK Holidays: The final balance will be required at least 8 weeks prior to the date of the holiday. If you book less than 8 weeks prior to the event, payment in full must be made when you book.
Overseas Holidays: The final balance will be required 12 weeks prior to the date of the holiday. If you book less than 12 weeks prior to the event, payment in full must be made when you book.
Late Payments: If your balance is not paid in a reasonable time of our request we will treat this as a cancellation and the treatment of this will be governed by our Refund Policy. If at our discretion, and depending on the nature of the holiday, we may be able to agree to late payment, there will be a Administration Fee of £15 per person to cover our handling costs (£25 for overseas holidays). If we have to pursue late payments, compensation will be sought.
The company will issue a final demand for payment, and if this also goes unpaid, late payment compensation will be sought at 40 pounds if the amount owed is less than 1000 pounds, and 70 pounds if the amount owed is over 1000 pounds. We reserve the right to charge interest on any outstanding balances.
Payment for flights is non-changeable and non-refundable. Should you cancel an overseas holiday, the cost of the flights is payable if this is higher than the deposit paid.
If you are a member of the Single With Kids’ Rewards Club (and pay either annual or monthly subscriptions), the members’ price will apply for your holiday – this is 15% less than the non members’ prices. The members’ discounts are only valid if you have an active Rewards’ Club membership that runs at least from the time of booking continuously through to the date of the holiday. (The Rewards Club / Holiday Club membership is separate from the dating site) Memberships are valid for you and your children, any additional families or adults on your booking will either require their own membership, or can be booked as non members.
Should you book as a member but not have a membership, we will invoice you for the non members’ price. If you are unsure as to whether your membership is still active, please do email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can check this for you – holiday discounts don’t apply retrospectively and you cannot backdate a membership so it’s best to check this prior to or at time of booking.
Membership numbers or codes are not needed to make a booking online, our system will automatically reconcile your booking with your membership. You can also book as a member immediately after taking out a Rewards Club membership – you don’t need to wait for any confirmation. Further details of the Rewards Club terms are here.
If You Alter Your Confirmed Holiday Booking
It may be possible to transfer your UK booking to another date or holiday after we have issued your receipt, we will do our best to arrange this. You must write to us with details of the alteration requested – there will be an Administration Charge of £15 per person to reschedule your booking.
Note: Changes made 90 days, or less, before an event, are not permitted and cannot be refunded.

If We Change Your Booking
Whilst everything will be done to provide the holidays shown on the website, Single With Kids Ltd may occasionally have to change your holiday arrangements, or part of them. Most alterations are minor and should not affect the overall enjoyment of your holiday. If we have to make significant alterations to your holiday arrangements we will notify you as quickly as possible. You may then A) accept the change, B) Take an alternative holiday subject to availability, with a cost adjustment depending on whether the alternative holiday is of a higher or lower price
Because our holidays are planned many months in advance, we occasionally (although seldom) need to make changes. We reserve the right to do this and will in all cases strive to ensure a better package is offered. You may either accept the new arrangements offered by us or accept a replacement holiday from us of equivalent or closely similar standard and price if one is available. Should you choose this option the terms and conditions of your holiday will not change and these conditions will still apply to your booking.
Should you have a special request that does not form part of the arrangements described on the website, please inform us in writing. We will do our best to comply but we cannot guarantee to do so and it will not form part of our contracted obligations. Requests for special meals (vegetarian, gluten free, nut free etc) must be made at the time of booking (please be aware that any such requests cannot always be guaranteed). Any such request made at a later time cannot be guaranteed although we will make every effort to comply with your requests.
Each of our holidays is based on a minimum number and we reserve the right to cancel a trip if such numbers are not reached. You will then have the choice of booking an alternative holiday with us, changing your departure date, or receive a full refund; no additional compensation will be paid. We understand there is often a lot of negotiation behind holiday access and time off work, and we will aim to retain your holiday plans wherever possible. With this in mind, most overseas holiday will proceed as long as there are at least 3 families booked.
Single With Kids Responsibility to You
Notwithstanding the conditional refunds stated above, Single With Kids Ltd accepts no liability for any loss or damage to any of your material possessions. Neither does Single With Kids Ltd accept responsibility for any injuries to you or your children. If you wish to cover yourself for the aforementioned eventualities, we recommend you take out the relevant form of insurance.
If You Have a Complaint
If you feel you have cause for complaint whilst on holiday, this must be immediately brought to the attention of the Single With Kids Coordinator so that action can be taken to remedy the problem.
Liability for Booking Errors
If we make an error in booking your holiday, we will accept liability and attempt to resolve matters to your full satisfaction.
If you provide us with incorrect information when booking your holiday, the liability rests with you, but we will do all we can to rectify mistakes in the booking once we have been notified.
Holiday Description Accuracy
Every care has been taken to ensure that the information contained on our website is accurate and up-to-date. However, mistakes can be made and changes may occur to accommodation that is out of our control, so if you have any particular concerns, please check the details of your holiday with us before making your booking.
Whilst we endeavour to give an accurate list of events & activities local to our trips, unless these are excursions organised by Single With Kids Ltd, they fall outside of our control and we cannot guarantee the availability of them. Should Single With Kids Ltd need to make changes to a pre-arranged and advertised excursion, (due to inclement weather for example) we will endeavour to offer a suitable alternative. Single With Kids are also not responsible for flight time amends or delays, the schedules are determined by the airline with which your flight is booked. If you have a particular carrier you would like to fly with, please mention this when booking your holiday and we will do what we can to find suitable flights.
We are happy to give details of ages and genders booked on specific holidays should this be a criteria for booking, we cannot unfortunately make any guarantees on this as not only is it difficult to predict booking patterns, we have no control over cancellations or holiday transfers.
We specialise in providing budget holidays, so it is imperative that you are adequately insured for any risks or loss / damage to your possessions.
Travel Documents & Visas
We have families travelling with us from all over the world and entry requirements differ per country and nationality. We would recommend checking with your government’s website for entry requirements to the country you’d like to visit, for UK citizens please check this site for up to date advice. Travellers are responsible for their own travel insurance and visas.
Health & Safety
We arrange contracts for accommodation and other arrangements through suppliers who we have taken reasonable care to ensure have good reputations and run safe and efficient businesses. Unfortunately, crime is a fact of life – you need to be vigilant, especially if you are in possession of valuables or large amounts of cash whilst away on holiday with us.
Any person considered to be behaving in an antisocial or aggressive manner and/or under the influence drugs may be asked to return home. If in the reasonable opinion of our coordinator, a landlord, the police, or other person in authority, your behaviour is causing danger, damage or affecting the enjoyment of others, we reserve the right to terminate your holiday. Single With Kids Ltd can take no responsibility for any additional expenses incurred or loss of holiday by individuals in any such circumstances. The company cannot accept any responsibility for the actions of other people outside its control.
Single With Kids Ltd reserves the right to claim from any person who causes damage to their accommodation, including harm or breakage of fixtures, fittings and furnishings, including, but not limited to electrical equipment within the supplied accommodation. Customers are required to leave accommodation in the manner they found it – claims from SingleWithKids Ltd will therefore be pursued to make good this standard.
