Our mission is to inspire single parent families to enjoy memorable holiday experiences in a safe, relaxing and enjoyable environment.

“Seeing the change in travel habits of my recently divorced and widowed friends and having worked in the travel industry for almost 2 decades, I decided to build a travel brand that was synonymous with fun and togetherness for solo and single parent families.

With a love for travel and holidaying with my family, I didn’t like seeing my friends feeling vulnerable and alone when on holiday with their children.  And so, Melon Holidays was born!”

Our vision is to be the UK’s leading provider of single parent family holidays.  That means offering the best value, the best customer service and the best experiences in the most trustworthy way.  Distinguishing ourselves from any other single parent holiday provider out there.

We aim to be the tour operator for single parent families that doesn’t penalize you by adding hefty supplements to the child prices – we negotiate the rates of all our hotels based on 1 adult, not 2. Melon Holidays gives you the choice and chance to be in a group with other small families so that you enjoy your holiday just as much as your children, among new-found friends.  Our holidays are also open to solo parents whose partner is unable to go on holiday with the family.

One thing that differentiates Melon Holidays from the competition, is that we don’t offer fully escorted tours.  We do have a member of our team to meet families at the airport and spend the first few days with the groups on our overseas holidays, but the reason we don’t have holiday coordinators, is because we would love to be able to see our single parents grow in confidence and feel empowered from having ventured abroad on holiday alone with the kids, without the constant support of someone else.

We offer good quality, great value holidays.  All our overseas breaks include either a full or half-day excursion where you will get to discover and enjoy your destination with the other Melon Holidays families.  Our hotels are on half board or all-inclusive which means that you don’t have the worry of not knowing where to have dinner each night or knowing how much it will cost!  With our #dinetogether and #drinktogether concepts, there will be no lonely evenings.
