It’s essential that you start planning well in advance in order to ensure that you get maximum value out of a hard-earned family vacation. With that in mind, here is a snap-shot look at four of the best and most affordable places to vacation with your kids in 2020.
Spain is truly stunning, it truly doesn’t matter where you stay – but most families who have ‘been there, done that’ will recommend travelling to Menorca. This gorgeous Balearic Island can be found just two hours from the UK and is full of family-friendly resorts. Think heated swimming pools, foodie-friendly restaurants, kids’ clubs, boat trips, and the peace and quiet that you’ve been craving.
The benefit of kids’ clubs is that they allow the kids to banish the boredom, all the while providing parents with anopportunity to relax a bit by themselves. Even better? Most kids clubs are built into the price of your chosen resort, no additional pay-out needed. Just be sure to double check this before booking, however!
As a parent with kids to please, you simply can’t go wrong by planning a vacation to the USA and to Orlando, Florida, in particular. This city is brimming with theme parks for children of all ages, with Walt Disney World Resort undoubtedly beingthe most popular. As they say, there truly isn’t anywhere like it on earth. Hordes of your children’s favourite Disney characters, thrilling rides, incredible water parks, and beaches galore. Just make sure that you invest in better value Disney World tickets before you depart the UK.
These discounted tickets can save you hundreds of pounds, provide you and your family with unlimited access to some of the resort’s best-loved attractions, and gift you with a few unmissable extras, such as ‘Memory Maker’ (which is essentially your pass to plenty of stunning photos of your loved ones making the most of what Walt Disney World has to offer).
There are often worthwhile holiday packages to Croatia to take advantage of, usually with a focus on the city of Dubrovnik which lies directly in front of the Adriatic Sea. It’s popular with kids and teens alike. Kids will love theadventurous cable car trip that reaches over 700 metres into the hills and promises incredible panoramic views of the city below, while teens will be awe-struck when exploring the areas where many scenes of Game of Thrones were filmed. There’s also plenty for a family to do in terms of culture-rich experiences, making the holiday educational in nature too.
Thailand beach holidays are extremely popular amongst UK families. They are cheap, and you can be sure that they’ll be memorable. Laze around on the sparkling sand, soak up those rays, and watch the children build sandcastles. When you’re in the mood to seek out an adventure, Thailand is also known for its countless water sports and activities, including snorkelling and kayaking. There will also often be an instructor not too far away from your hotel who will be glad to teach the kids how it’s done.
Happy holidays, everyone!
