I've been arranging holidays for single parents for about 7 years, as my daughter gets older and more independent I feel that now is the right time to have some "Me" time...so I've set this group up for like minded people who are looking to travel for weekends away and maybe longer holidays . I've a fair amount of experience at finding budget flights and accommodation and the group would be set up on a NOT FOR PROFIT basis but there maybe a need to cover costs that maybe incurred for some holidays ... A little more about me and my aims....
I;m Jane, 55 years old ...I have a nearly 14 year old daughter ...we live in the village on the Cams/Beds border.....
I had my daughter late in life (unplanned) just as I was preparing to take some time off work and go travelling (I worked in banking and financial services and still do albeit through an intermediary now ). I;ve been a single parent for the last 10/11 years and decided that this would not prevent me from travelling. I searched around and found lots of companies charging allot of money for holidays so I started organising my own Single Parent Holidays through a Single Parent Forum and One Plus joined Meet Up in 2011... My policy has always been to arrange holidays where I would like to go - fortunately quite a few people have taken the plunge and joined me ......the link is attached so you can see some of the reviews ...(I tend to have allot of families who come away with me 3-5 times a year - The club attracted allot of teachers for some reason).
50 Plus Travel
I would like to try and run a similar type of group to One Plus but the events would not be in school holidays - I have commitments to One Plus up until Feb 17 ... I like to travel to unspoilt places some of the beaten track. The club will be a gentle burner...offering weekends away when flights are cheap ....balancing accommodation costs between good value hotels and apartments and villa's ...I dont intend to post fixed itineraries - everyone going on a holiday can contribute and dip in and out as they please
The group would suit independent travellers looking for like minded company so that they can explore new places to suit there own budgets.
Please bear in mind I am not a commercial organisation or a travel agent everyone is welcome to add there own idea's too...
