Keep it close to home

Don't break the bank
There are plenty of great value holiday options out there specifically for families that won’t require re-mortgaging the house. All you have to do is shop around online. There are plenty of options for kids to stay and eat for free, plus all-inclusive and half-board options that might keep the bill down.

Parents, you're important too
Resist the temptation to plan every day from dawn to dusk or you’ll end up needing a holiday after your holiday. It’s been a full-on first half of term leaving everyone exhausted. Make sure you leave some time for some family relaxation. Find a hotel with a kids’ club, and book yourself in for a sneaky treatment at the spa – you’re worth it.

Have fun
Enjoy the moment and go with a flow. Don’t get stressed trying to make everything perfect, Instead focus on reconnecting as a family. Sometimes the best parts of a holiday are the unplanned ones!

Happy kids (happy parents)
