As I said in Travels as a Single Parent, traveling as a single parent is not always easy, but it can be very enjoyable. I enjoyed traveling enough that I am actually considering vacations. The idea of planning a vacation as a single parent has always seemed a daunting task to me; however, now that I did travel with my son, I want to look into it more.
When planning a vacation, you have to plan a lot, and if anything goes awry, it could amount to some big troubles. You have to plan where you are going to stay, what/where you are going to eat, what you are going to do and see, how much time will be spent doing stuff and how much will be spent relaxing, when you will be able to go, how long you will be gone, how will you afford it and so much more.
There aren’t many places out there for single parents to get a good deal on travel, but Single Parent Tours is one that does. If however, you can’t or don’t want to spend two thousand dollars or more, you can plan it yourself. Once you research everything, you can also contact a travel agent and see if they can get you a better deal. Some travel agents really know their stuff, and really can find you breaks and deals that you wouldn’t normally find on your own.
There are also several ways to save money while traveling that people either don’t normally think about, or aren’t aware of. This can really help bring a single parent vacation into grasp when you would normally think otherwise. Th price of travel is probably the biggest concern when it comes to single parents and vacations. If you could cut the cost of lodging by 75% or more, would it bring the idea of a vacation closer to happening?
