When is the best time to travel on family holiday packages?
School holidays are often the most convenient time to travel with kids. However, the off-season is the best time to travel on family accommodation and flight packages for the lowest prices and smallest crowds. Off-season varies based on the destination you choose, but summer tends to be the busiest time to book family packages. You’ll often find the lowest rates on family hotels and accommodation in the winter months – unless you’re visiting a ski resort – and spring and autumn can come with both excellent deals and pleasant weather.
