Cheap holidays with relatives

holidays with relatives

Travelling for work and promotion often splits the generations of a family apart so that grandparents do not have a close relationship with grandchildren and appreciate the chance to get to know them better when they visit for a holiday.

It is always nicer if grandparents live in a tourist destination, near a beach or somewhere pleasant. Otherwise we have to make the best of what is available. Every location has parks, museums, beauty spots and things to do in the area.

Sometimes the family stay with relatives is the only holiday during a year, especially if you have a long way to travel. However, it is occasionally nice to go somewhere else for a change and to enjoy a 'real' holiday. If you would consider splashing out, take a look at family self-catering holidays with lots of nice places to stay and everything tailored to children.

One option to consider is possibly booking a holiday with grandparents and asking them to share the costs of a holiday.

When visiting relatives it is best to consider how you are going to get on and how long you can both tolerate each other before the welcome wears thin. You might think that your children are absolutely adorable but this may not be a view shared by all. A short break may be quite enough for both you.

Another thing to possibly consider is a house swap within a family with relatives you know and trust. No money changes hands for the accommodation, all you need to pay for above your usual expenses is travel. This type of house swap avoids the pitfalls that house swaps with strangers may entail.
