Travelzoo March Break Tips & Giveaway

March Break is upon us and the folks at Travelzoo have some tips for travelling families...

Ensure safe travels – When travelling with kids, it’s a good idea to stay at reputable resorts and hotels. Understand local customs and laws, have local contact information (e.g. hotels and hospitals), and travel health insurance, and make sure family and friends have your information in case your documents get lost or stolen.

Remember the extra costs! – To ensure that you stay within your budget, keep in mind that travelling a day earlier or later than the ideal departure date can dramatically impact your cost of flights and vacation packages. This is even more important when travelling with family. Also, if there is a restaurant that you are eager to try, go at lunch time rather than dinner as it will be significantly less costly. Finally, keep in mind additional costs including taxes, health insurance and cancellation fees. Remember to expect the unexpected, especially when travelling as a family.

    My dream family vacation is a road trip. I would love to drive down to the Grand Canyon, detouring along the way to see local attractions. I love the relaxed nature and limitless possibilities of road trips.

    In the future, I would love to be able to take the whole family to Sweden and Norway. My grandparents are from there, and it would mean a lot to me to see it for myself, as well as expose our children to their heritage.
