How to Plan a Family Vacation

Planning a family vacation can be both exciting and stressful, but with the right approach, it can be an enjoyable experience for everyone involved. The first step is to decide on a budget for the trip. Choose a budget that allows you to pay off the trip upon booking or can be paid off by final payment. Vacations should help you de-stress, and keeping within your means is important for a stress-free vacation. Keep in mind that pricing has gone up significantly since the pandemic so your 2019 budget probably will not cut it.

Next, consider the type of vacation that you and your family are interested in for this trip. Do you want to spend time at the beach, in the mountains, or exploring a national park? Would you prefer a cruise or an all-inclusive resort? Once you decide on the type of vacation, you can start looking into specific destinations.

When choosing a destination, think about the activities that you and your family want to do and flights from your home city. Do you want to go hiking, swimming, or sightseeing? Are there any specific attractions or events that you want to attend? Make a list of these activities and use them to guide your destination selection. Use Google Flights to see flight availability and rough pricing.

Think about any unique accommodations that your family needs. Does anyone have food allergies or special dietary restrictions? Does anyone have autism, physical limitations, or other special needs? Does the trip need to be LGBQT+ friendly? Think about anything that is part of your normal life that may not be part of everyone’s life.

Finally, reach out to a travel advisor for assistance. A travel advisor has access to bulk airfares, charter flights, and group space on cruises that could potentially save you loads. Price alone isn’t why you should reach out to a travel advisor. They have a wealth of knowledge and are often well-traveled. They can present options that align closely with your budget, interests, travel dates, and special needs. With these tips in mind, you can start planning your family vacation with confidence and look forward to a memorable trip.
