Family Holidays in the School Holidays

The dilemma facing us all once our children reach primary school age: where on earth to go on a family holiday without paying the earth.  With a little know-how, imagination and help from the Turquoise experts you can still enjoy a quality holiday without impacting on term time - whether planning ahead or booking a last minute getaway. While flights to many popular family destinations sell out fast or command high prices the moment school holidays start, you don't have to spread your horizons too far and wide to find great value elsewhere.  We love South East Asia’s resorts with spacious villa accommodation and a line-up of adventures and activities to challenge the most demanding of young minds. Some of our favourite Indian Ocean resorts run sport-filled weeks and kids clubs during the holidays so mum and dad can enjoy the golf, spa, beach and pool. 

Africa ticks all the right boxes and if on your family holiday you all love to explore and learn, with the advantage of no jet lag and choice of safari, beach or the unbeatable combination of both.  Even the ever-popular Caribbean has hidden gems.  Don’t follow the crowds - book with Turquoise and discover why we are the UK's leading long haul family holiday specialist.  Our indestructible and family friendly shop in South West London is open on Saturdays so make it a family outing to come and find out what's on offer.
