Single Vacations Post Divorce with Lisa Primmer

Should you attempt to vacation with your kids alone? What should you do if you’re single and want to travel? First timers, know your limits. Taking on too much will cause stress.

Don’t assume that booking online means savings. Most travel advisors do not charge a fee and are paid by the properties. But here is what’s interesting: online sites like Expedia and Travelocity are also being paid by the properties! So, if you use a travel advisor, you get the same rate, but with all the service and expertise that a travel advisor can bring.

One place to start with your kids is Cities. There are so many things to do, including restaurants, transportation, museums.

Hotels and resorts that have Kids Clubs could be ideal so that you can get some downtime without the kids and they can be entertained with friends their own age.

We weren’t fans of cruises before this segment, but we now see that cruises can be amazing; everything is covered for you, from meals to transportation. You can see multiple locations without packing and unpacking, the service is high, and there is so much to do. Even people who don’t love Disney rave about Disney Cruises. There is something for every age.

All-inclusive family resorts can be great for staying on a budget, but be sure that they are kid friendly. Would be awful to be surrounded by honey-moon couples when you are going through a divorce.

If you are traveling alone, look for activity-based vacations: garden tours, surfing camps, yoga retreats…. You’ll find people with a common interest. Great way to meet your next partner.
