Luxury family holidays: Parents should put aside 'two or three hours in the day' on family trips
Parents planning luxury family holidays should actively put aside "two or three hours during the day" so they can actually relax and make the most of the vacation themselves.
Conrad Doyle, co-founder of Childfriendly.co.uk, a website which allows parents to review hotels on how good they are for family trips, said that although people mainly want their children to have fun, it is important they put aside some relaxation time for themselves.
"I know, of course, there are people that do look for the facilities that will enable the parents to have a relaxing escape knowing that the kids can have fun too," he said.
"[But] a lot of the research that we have seen tends to indicate that what parents want most is just for their children to have a good time in a welcoming environment."
The results of a study, recently released by Aviva, revealed that 94 per cent of children in the United Kingdom have been abroad before they are 16 years old. On the other hand, only about 39 per cent of their parents had been abroad at this time in their lives.
