Are you planning on heading abroad for your first family holiday? Sometimes it can be somewhat daunting trying to decide on the perfect holiday that’s right for you. You want a holiday that fully caters for your little ones, but also allows you and your partner to enjoy some quality time together and return home knowing that everyone has had the best time imaginable. Take a look below at my suggestions of things to take into account when planning holidays for young children.
When travelling with young children, it’s important to try and fit your journey around their routine. Shorter flights are ideal due to short attention spans. So try places such as Alcudia in Majorca, Benidorm on the Costa Blanca or Port El Kantaoui in Tunisia. Night flights are even better for working around your child’s sleeping pattern. Take a look at my top tips for travelling with toddlers for more information.
Many of our hotels offer our very own Thomas Cook Kids Clubs. You can rest assured that your children are in the safest hands with our dedicated and fully qualified staff; providing fun, games and plenty of laughter for the duration of your holiday. You never know, your little ones might even get to meet Lollo & Bernie, the friendly kids’ club mascots. It also allows the perfect opportunity for you and your other half to put your feet up and make the most of your well-earned break.
For the ultimate in kids’ entertainment, you can’t go wrong with an Aquamania holiday. Our Aquamania hotels feature their own on-site waterparks so that the whole family can dive in and make a splash whenever you like. They’re great for young ones who just want to go for a little paddle or older children craving an adrenaline-fuelled thrill: our Aquamania waterparks have it all. They’re perfect for big kids too, whether you want to whizz down rip-roaring slides or leave that to the kids and gently float down a lazy river instead.
