”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."

Holiday quarrels begin at age 11

0

Four in ten parents say children fight after the age of 11Squabbles and tantrums on holiday begin when children reach the age of 11, new research has suggested.

A survey by Ocean Village revealed that 40 per cent of parents said they saw an increase in holiday arguments from that age, Travel Weekly reports.

Meanwhile, a quarter of children questioned said they find family holidays boring because they are prevented from pursuing their own interests.

As a result, parents are beginning to involve their children in planning the family holiday to help ease the stress.

Commenting, Ocean Village head of marketing communications, Gill Haynes, said: "Our research shows the increasing importance of the family holiday as a way to re-establish family bonds, not only amongst the generations, but also between parents and children.

"This means that the requirements of an average family holiday are becoming increasingly complex to ensure that everyone gets the most out of the time they spend together."

Croatia holiday ”good value for money”

0

More than 7,000 Brits visited Croatia between January and MarchA holiday to Croatia may be the best thing to do as the credit crunch hits wallets, as the country offers "good value for money", a spokesperson for Charisma PR has said.

The agency, which works on behalf of the Croatia Tourism Board, believes that the former Yugoslav nation "is very reasonable because it is outside the eurozone, so it”s still good value for money because the pound is not particularly strong against the euro at the moment".

In addition, the spokesperson said, visitors will enjoy Croatia because "the countryside is very beautiful and the beaches and the water are very clean".

According to official statistics, there were nearly 600,000 tourists in Croatia between January and March 2008 – up 14 per cent compared to the same period in 2007.

The number of foreign tourists increased by 30 per cent to 285,688 in the first quarter of 2008 and there were a little more than 7,000 tourists from the UK.
