Start Early: Getting a jump on planning helps ensure that everyone sits together on a flight or has adjoining rooms in a hotel, especially if you have a big group.
Be Flexible: Most schools let out at the same time, so traveling just before or after closure dates can be key. Missing one school day might save thousands of dollars.
Consider a Cruise: Aboard a ship, you’ll find lots of organized activities to enjoy together — plus child care and teen clubs for time apart.
Book a Coach: Instead of a traditional road trip, try a motor coach tour such as Western Frontiers, a cowboy-themed journey to Western parks and landmarks from Trafalgar Tours. On a coach, a professional driver frees up parents to relax, and there are often playmates for the kids.
Splurge a Little: Consider paying extra for priority boarding and guaranteed connecting rooms if it will save you stress. Don’t forget travel insurance to protect the whole family’s investment in case one person cannot travel due to an unforeseen situation such as illness.
