From Spain to Seattle, Lanzarote to L.A, there are so many destinations to research when looking for the family holiday of a lifetime. If you can’t wait to get away, why not throw caution to the wind and snap up a last minute holiday for less…
If you’re travelling with younger children, short haul holidays take the stress out of getting to your destination. There are plenty of great destinations just a few short hours’ flight away, so you won’t have to endure ‘are we there yet’ for too long! Holidays in Spain are popular with families as you’ll find a wide range of hotels geared up for adults and kids. With nurseries, crèches and kids clubs, you can enjoy some time alone for a romantic meal or an evening show in your hotel.
During the day time, stick by the pool for fun water games and quizzes with the holiday reps. When you are ready to escape the hotel and explore, Spain has many traditional towns, ancient sites and popular attractions just waiting to be discovered. Head to one of the famous water parks where you’ll all enjoy wave rides, slides and splash zones perfect for cooling down in the Mediterranean sun.
If you are travelling with older children, you may prefer to go further afield to a sun drenched long haul destination. Take a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon. Discover the Sydney Opera House. Or trek the Great Wall of China. Be as daring as you like for a trip you’ll never forget. You can now fly directly to many far flung destinations from local airports, so getting there needn’t put a dampener on your holiday. Wherever you choose to explore, shop around for great deals with extra discounts, free upgrades and free kids’ places for big savings.
