Ferry travel a good idea for kids

2

Ferry travel is less restricting It is a good idea to travel with children on a ferry when going on a holiday, one industry expert has suggested.

Although air and ferry travel are both exciting for children, "the bonus of travelling by ferry is that it is a lot less restricting", Lucy Ace, managing director of Take the Family said.

She added: "You can walk around stretching your legs and getting rid of some of that built up energy.

"On some routes you can take cabins or join in with onboard entertainment, all of which help to make the whole experience much less stressful."

Last year, Shipping Times revealed that there was an Easter holiday boom for ferry travel from Dover Ferry Port, as more than 235,000 passengers passed through the Port of Dover over the four days of the Easter holiday weekend in 2007.

This was seven per cent more than the 2006 holiday weekend, according to figures released by Dover Harbour Board.

”Easy and cheap” to spend family holidays abroad

0

It is "easy and cheap" to go abroad for family holidays, one industry expert has claimed.

Elizabeth Young, editor of Travel for Kids, explained that "with inexpensive airlines, families can plan a weekend in Barcelona, for example, more easily than having to drive to the beach in the UK".

She added that Italy and Spain were popular destinations for families.

Within these countries, Venice and Barcelona topped the list, Ms Young said, while Paris remained a "perennial favourite".

A recent survey by Travelodge found that 78 per cent of British children own a passport and youngsters favour foreign holiday hotspots over locations within the UK.

Ms Young also had a bit of advice for people travelling with children.

"Rather than rush around to lots of different destinations, plan to stay longer in one place.

"The kids will have more fun, and it”s more relaxing for everyone in the family."
