Lowcostbeds.com has teamed up with the Family Holiday Association and will now make a donation to the charity for every booking it receives for single parent family hotels.
With nearly two million single parent families in the UK, the website’s newly launched programme aims to offer savings of up to 50% to parents travelling on their own with children during the peak season.
John McDonald, director of the charity, said: “Part of our vision is to work in partnership with others to increase the number of families that gain access to holidays and lowcost have been fantastic in creating this new opportunity to support single parent families. Not only will it make a difference to the actual holiday-makers but the donation will contribute to our work in helping very disadvantaged families have access to breaks, building happier and stronger families.”
Tim Buckman, UK managing director for lowcosttravelgroup, said: “The ideals of the Family Holiday Association are admirable. We were drawn to working with them when trying to find a solution to bringing down the holiday cost for single parents. I believe this is only the start of our relationship with the charity and we look forward to helping many more families have access to what others already benefit from.”
The Family Holiday Association helps more than 2,000 families a year to have a simple break in the UK and escape the stresses of bereavement, poverty, chronic illness, inadequate housing or domestic violence.
