Family holidays are a memorable occasion – sometimes for good or for bad! – and one that every family looks forward to. Every family wish-list is different – and that’s what makes holidays with the little ones so enjoyable. Perhaps you’re planning a trip to a beach-centric destination with plenty of watery fun and splash-tastic activities on the agenda. Maybe you’re heading for the hills and planning to spend a week in a private villa with your own pool. Or maybe you’re going all out this year with a fortnight of fun in Florida. Whatever tickles your fancy, there’s an overwhelming choice of family holidays at your disposal – so which one will you choose?

Travelling as a family of four, five or even more can be an expensive experience. So if you’re searching for discount family holidays that won’t break the bank, you should try to book your jolly well in advance. Most tour operators advertise holidays as far away as 12 or even 18 months ahead of the departure date, which means you’ve got all that time to save some money and pay off the cost of your trip. Late deals are another option, but when you’ve got the family in tow you need to know that the resort is spot-on, with all the right activities and facilities on offer. Get it wrong, and you could easily be heading for a week of “I’m bored”. So for families, the advance-booking concept is often the best option.
If you’re planning to visit far-flung shores, what a treat awaits! There’s Mexico’s Caribbean Coast which is well geared up for holidaymakers from all walks of life, with excellent all-inclusive hotels and plenty of local entertainment. Holidays to Dominican Republic is another favourite, while elsewhere in the Americas, Florida is a must-go destination that’s bound to be right at the top of your list of all-time favourite family holidays.
So with all that choice, where will your fabulous family holiday take you?
