Things to Consider when Planning your Summer Holiday

by Hannah

Holiday’s with kids take a lot of planning.  There’s a lot of things to consider.  A holiday with your family is probably one of the most important things that you will do this year – so you will want to get it just right.  If you are already beginning to plan, you will be happy to know we have put a list of things you will want to check off your list before you go.

Financial Planning and Budget

You need to think about how much your dream holiday will cost and if you can afford it.  You can get some great deals that you can pay up, but if the initial deposit is a little bit of a struggle there are lots of options. There are some top no credit check loans that will allow you to get the money you need to seal the deal and get your holiday booked.  You can pay it off a part of a monthly installment – so it will feel as if it’s just part of your holiday payment.

Journey Time 

You need to think about the length of the journey.  If you are going on a plane, you need to make sure your kids are entertained.  Find out the flight times before you confirm the booking – and make sure that you have the transfers sorted for arrival.  That way it will make your life a little easier with the kids if they are on the tired side.  When you can, try and book flight times that suit the kids rather than unsociable hours.

Activities and Amenities

Depending on the age of your kids, it can be difficult to entertain them all day, every day.  Make sure you do adequate research to see what activities and amenities your hotel or resort has. If they have a kids club then that is a big thumbs up, or it could be that they could just indulge in some water sports at the beach nearby.  They will enjoy their holiday a lot more if there are things to do.

Book Whatever you Can in Advance

If you plan on going on any excursions whilst you are holidays, if there is the opportunity for you to book excursions and trips in advance, then that’s the best option.  This could save you a lot of money in the long run – and you will know that there are things that are already booked for when you arrive and can schedule out your trip.  You should also check in to see if there are some family deals, or group discounts.  Often if you book more than one trip – there will be a further discount applied.

Check their Review Rating

Go on 3rd party websites such as Tripadvisor to see what other experiences people have had at your resort or hotel.  That will give you a better, and unbiased idea of what to expect.  If you see something with 1 star – then of course that should raise alarm bells.

Make sure you plan in advance and have the holiday of a lifetime.
