”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."

Regulation to help disabled travellers in Europe

0

The new law is set to help 15 million disabled travellersA new regulation for up to 15 million disabled travellers in Europe has come into effect.

Under the measures, airports in EU countries have to provide services to help disabled people to board, disembark and transfer between flights.

Transport minister, Rosie Winterton, said: "This is a major step in ensuring that disabled people and those with reduced mobility have the same access to the standards and services that everyone expects when they fly.

"We expect all airlines and airports to maintain these high standards and for strong action to be taken against anyone repeatedly breaking the regulations across Europe."

The Equalities and Human Rights Commission”s Baroness Jane Campbell, added: "People who previously daren”t risk flying for fear of problems can now confidently give it a try."

This is the second stage of measures to support disabled passengers flying through Europe.

Last year, it became illegal for airlines, travel agents or tour operators to refuse a holiday booking on the grounds of disability.

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.
