Why is single parent travel different than traditional family travel? "By definition, the single parent is a working parent," says Brenda Elwell, a travel industry veteran and author of the only travel book focused exclusively on the subject, The Single Parent Travel Handbook. "Traditional double parent vacations are structured to get rid of the kids so the parents can have couple time, but the single parent always winds up as the 'odd man out' stuck somewhere in the space between 'family couple' and 'swinging single'." Ms. Elwell has made it her mission to change that.

The Single Parent Travel Handbook focuses on planning a trip that will be enjoyed by both the children and their parent, whether that occurs in the U.S. or in Zimbabwe. Ms. Elwell helps sort out the troubling details of single parent travel, such as dealing with the dreaded "Single Supplement," assembling the documents necessary to travel with children in these security-conscious times, and finding travel agents who specialize in single parent travel. There are also dozens of destination ideas, ways of coping with most parental dilemmas, the results of a survey of single parents and heartwarming stories by single fathers. This is one book no single parent can afford to do without!

The Single Parent Travel Handbook is exclusively distributed by Beagle Bay Books and available through Ingram, Baker & Taylor and Brodart.
