The Duke and Duchess and Cambridge, Will and Kate are yet to announce the due date of their third child. But speculation and times suggest that it will be due sometime in April. Their new arrival will bring them to a family of 5 with Prince George (4) and Princess Charlotte (2). With three children under 5 in the household not only will the new parents want a holiday, they will need one.
Now we assume that if you have access to a private jet that you have access to Airport Parking, but does your jet know where to go? We have put together a selection of the best places for a family holiday with small children.
If You are Looking for Fun in the Sun for the Family
Combining budget and facilities you can’t go wrong with a family all inclusive holiday in Europe. With most destinations available in a 2-3-hour flight you can easily get away. If you are going towards the beginning or end of summer, the Canary Islands and the Balearics are great for early and late sun. Otherwise take your pick from France downwards and enjoy 7 days of almost guaranteed great weather. The advantages of an all-inclusive holiday is that everything is taken care of. The cooking, cleaning and most importantly the kid’s entertainment.
If our royal couple are looking for some quality time with their new born, they can take advantage of some great Kid’s Clubs. These will keep our young royals occupied throughout the day. You can find Thomas Cook all inclusive holidays with £300 off if you book early. Thomas Cook offer up to 2 hours a day of kid’s entertainment. Which gives you a well-deserved rest. Not to mention with ice cream on a never-ending tap. The hardest thing you will need to do is put empty wrappers in the bin with your empty Pina Colada glass.
If you are getting away why not get a great deal on Meet & Greet Parking with us? This convenient parking is the easiest way to get your children from car to airport.
If You are Staying in the UK
Our childhood holidays are filled with red and yellow coats and every joke from Hi Di Hi (ask your dad about it). In 2018 UK holiday parks are still a popular destination. If you are blessed with a young family a short break may suit you best.
Most of us only live around a maximum 2-hour drive from a Butlins, Pontins or Centre Parcs. Removing the airport, flights and transfers can seem appealing. Swapping the airport for a short trip up or down the motorway. At around £1,000 a week for a family it not only comes in at a budget price. But for your money you have water parks, activities, nightly shows and access to everything you need for a hassle-free break. A late 5-day break at Centre Parcs can be as little as £500. This gives full access to hundreds of acres of woodland and unlimited access to their waterparks.
Both these options will leave you with catering for your family. However, accommodation comes with dishwashers and all sites have lots of places to eat. When lugging everything that comes with a baby, a toddler and a pre-schooler you may be grateful that you can just take the car. For Will and Kate, maybe they would prefer to enjoy the beautiful woodland we have here in the UK and blend in with us common folk. Really, who would be looking for them in Wiltshire?
If You Don’t Have a Nanny for the School Holidays
Our royal family will probably have the advantage of being able to pack their own nanny to help with the children. But what if you could have one too? Tucked away in Greece is the Sani Resort, a luxury hotel on the beach offering the best in family holidays. It offers beautiful beaches, great food and accommodation. Most importantly it offers a nanny service to help with the children and even the baby. Allowing you a chance to swim, relax, sleep or even go to dinner together.
The nanny service is not entirely free, but you can take advantage of the 30 minutes free peace and quiet each day. Let’s be fair most parents scream for only 5 minutes. The Kid’s Club is complimentary for older children and prices in high season start from as little as £250 a night for a family of 4. The resort is known for some cracking deals with free kid places amongst them, making this luxury holiday an achievable one
If You Can’t Sit Still When You Go Away
Maybe Will and Kate won’t be away this summer with all the potential royal engagements a new baby brings. So how about an active holiday for whatever the weather and wherever they go? The Moar Gut in Austria offers horseback riding and long walks in the summer and skiing and sleigh rides in the winter. This family resort is perfect for families. They cater for everything, from all-day baby care to toddlers play houses and onsite petting zoo/farm. Although the resort puts the kids first they do ensure that the grown ups are kept occupied. Obviously in the winter there is skiing and alpine pursuits. But on site there is also a full spa, gourmet food and time to relax
From £3,000 for a week’s holiday it may have more a royal price tag than a bargain one. However, you should get online and check out the huge range of facilities and activities available. They are all included in the price giving you great value for a holiday of a lifetime.
Whatever your plans this summer or in 2018 your family holiday can cater for the children as well as the grown ups. The Team at Parking-at-Airports would like to wish the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge good luck with their new arrival. Fingers crossed, George and Charlotte, Mum and Dad will be taking you on one of our suggestions… See you in Bogno!.
