Sue Atkins in Conversation with H from Steps with psychologist Dr Angharad Rudkin

Holidays are changing.

One size DOESN’T fit all: The traditional family holiday is more unique than ever

Over half (56%) of single parents haven’t had a proper holiday in over two years

The pressure of being the sole, responsible adult is enough to make a quarter (26%) of single parents want to book another trip to recover straight away!

Because of this, around half (45%) of single parents prefer to book larger holiday rentals and travel with additional adults,

I’m talking to H from STEPS  and expert in family psychology, Dr Angharad Rudkin as single parents have had to be everything over the past year; teachers, chefs, entertainers, parents and breadwinners. And with over half (56%) of these multi-tasking professionals not going on a proper holiday in over two years, needless to say, they deserve a break!

The traditional family holiday is changing. According to the latest research from Vrbo

an expert in family holiday rentals, more than half (54%) of single parents are planning a holiday with their kids this year. But when one parent is in charge of the kids, the planning and packing all on their own, there’s a lot to take into account to ensure the long overdue break is relaxing for ALL the family, including the parent.

A third of single parents stated they’ve previously postponed or even cancelled holidays because they felt they couldn’t manage going on their own, especially in unfamiliar surroundings, whilst over a quarter (26%) admitted a holiday alone with their kids leaves them feeling like they need to book another trip straight afterwards to recover!
