This year we have seen an increase in demand for experience-led family holidays to destinations as far ranging as Canada, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Botswana. There is talk of a mind shift amongst parents, whom are eschewing the temptation to spend money on stuff and instead are spending money on creating shared memories. It is clear that a growing number of parents see the educational value in travelling, as well as the advantages of simply spending time together on a stimulating family holiday without the distraction of routine.
So, we are launching Steppes Six Year Family Holiday Planner in a bid to encourage families to think ahead and get busy planning the ultimate family holiday. The idea is based on the following unwelcome truths:
- Up until six years old, your children are unlikely to remember much about what you did with them on holiday.
- Once your children turn into teenagers travelling with you will be seen as ‘uncool’.
- This gives you a window of six years in which to create six memorable holidays with your kids
