Family-Friendly Deals

Families often struggle to find great deals when it comes to booking summer holidays. While it’s well-documented that families with school-age children are hit by huge price rises when holidaying during the late July and August period (our own research shows jumps of up to 47%*), families with babies and toddlers may also be neglected by the usual deals that focus on two adults travelling only.

Our Deal Experts are coming to the rescue, with deals that fit into at least one of the following categories:

  1. Focused on families with babies or toddlers – these will have larger rooms and added extras such as kids eat free
  2. Focused on families with school-age children, for travel over school holiday season

We’ve got popular destinations (think the south of France), less well-known ones (think Oman) and hotel accommodation closer to home, too. Here are three of our favourites:

Great for families with babies or toddlers
Head across the channel to the beautiful Loire Valley in western France. Pierre & Vacances is offering a week in a 2-bedroom house at a holiday village. This gives parents plenty of room to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet once their little ones have gone to sleep. Other facilities include a kids’ club and a golf course.

Great for families with teens
Voyager Travel Direct has summer breaks to Hurghada in Egypt at a hotel that includes plenty of activities for children, not to mention an aqua park. With all meals and unlimited soft drinks included all day long, parents needn’t worry about their teens eating through their wallets, either.

Great for families wanting something closer to home
Looking for a shorter city break in the UK? Principal Hayley has cut over 50% off stays in a Family Room at The Palace Hotel in the heart of Manchester. You’re close to shops, restaurants and sites such as the Manchester Gallery and the Museum of Science and Industry.
