Do you ever look at your family and think about how you want to get away? With them, of course. Yes, we bicker. We moan. We fight over what to watch on TV. But there’s something about going on holiday with them. There might still be the occasional strop. Tantrums over ice cream. Tears over someone taking beach games too seriously. But whilst you’re all under the sun, it doesn’t really matter. Seeing each other’s faces sliding SO ungracefully down the waterslides. Placing bets on who will take ‘all-you-can-eat’ to the extreme (it’s got to be dad, hasn’t it?). Waking mum from her midday sun lounger nap with a nice cold bottle of water on her back. It’s all those times that'll turn into a giggling ‘remember when…’, when you’re back at home. That’s what it’s all about.

On the Beach Perks - FREE Lounge & FREE Fast Track

Today is the day. You're up early, the other half has checked the passports a thousand times and you're on your way. The kids even had cake for breakfast… because you're on your jollies. Holiday mode is on! The only thing between you and the beach is the dreaded airport faff - the security queue, the food and drink queues and all that money you spend. But, what if we skipped that bit? Skip the security queue. Stroll into the swanky airport lounge and load up on free cake. Enjoy Free airport beers and Wi-Fi access to brag about it? Now, that's what I'm talking about. With FREE security fast track on all package holidays and FREE lounge access for 4 or 5* package holidays, that's exactly what you get. Your jollies just… jollier. Free security fast track and free lounge offers apply to outbound journeys only, and some airports may be excluded. Terms and conditions apply.

Our Top Tip!

Family holidays with waterparks

Waterparks offer bundles of fun for the little kids and the big kids. With splash parks and mini slides for the youngest members of the family to white-knuckle slides and thrilling water rides for the adults, a day at the waterpark is a day well spent. The best thing about these family-friendly resorts? You don't even have to leave the hotel grounds to have your fun.

Family holidays by the beach or in the city?

Whether you love stepping straight from your hotel onto golden sands, or you enjoy being in the heart of the action, location is key when it comes to family holidays. From the smallest members of the clan to picky teens and grandparents, it can be hard to please everyone, so we've picked some of our family favourites located either along the beachfront or in the resort centre.

Family holidays with babies and toddlers

Buggy? Check. Travel cot? Check. Babysitter? If only. There's so much to remember when holidaying with the little ones, but there doesn't need to be. We've chosen some of our top toddler-friendly hotels, so all of the essentials are provided (including babysitting services for that one quiet dinner you have planned). Who said family holidays can't be stress-free?

What are the best destinations for a family holiday?

If you're travelling with little ones then it's a good idea to consider somewhere that is close to the beach and sunny, without being unbearably hot. Spain and parts of Greece are ideal for warm temperatures and family-friendly facilities.

What are the cheapest family holiday destinations?

The cheapest destinations vary, but Turkey hotels are excellent value for money if you're looking for all-day entertainment, waterparks and kids clubs, whilst Balearic islands such as Majorca and Menorca are great choices for some laidback family fun in the sun.

What type of holiday is best for families?

If you're travelling with the whole family in tow than an All Inclusive holiday is the perfect choice for some hassle-free sun. Buffet breakfasts, ice cream for the kids, daytime activities and evening shows - it's all included. You don't need to lift a finger.

Where can I travel to with a short flight time?

Short flights mean that you can jet off for your dose of sun, sand and sea without the kids getting antsy and without having to spend a full day of your holiday travelling. Spanish favourites such as Ibiza, Menorca and Majorca are all ideal for a family beach break, and Canary Islands such as Lanzarote and Tenerife are only a few hours away, too.

This site was very straight forward to use and 2yrs in a row we've got a great price for our family holiday. The holiday was exactly as it was advertised and we booked up again as soon as we got home.
