Family vacations

We can craft family vacations for pre-school little ones who require childcare, those with children bound by school vacation dates, families with older children, and those who want a customized adventure to suit the whole family.

Once upon a time you could disappear on a great escape with no one to worry about but yourselves, and the freedom to take each day as it came. With little ones in tow, there’s more to think about and greater preparation to be made. But having children in your life doesn’t mean the end of the adventure. If anything, it’s just the beginning of another story.

Our family team are expert at arranging vacations for guests with young children and babies. In the Alps and the Mediterranean we have Scott Dunn children’s clubs, and many of the properties in our portfolio have been selected for their superb children’s clubs and family-friendly set-up. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a customized adventure that will suit slightly older children, we can craft something exciting for all the family.

So whether you’re taking a vacation with very young children, teenagers or a mixture of the two, we can arrange the right family escape for you. We’ll take out all hassle and give you the confidence you need when traveling with young ones. After all, a family vacation should be a vacation for every single member.

Family travel tips and FAQs

Traveling with children conjures up thoughts of a stressful start to a vacation. That's where we come in. With a wealth of knowledge between our teams on how best to prepare for a family vacation, we are well equipped to answer any of your pre-departure concerns, from the number of nappies in your villa to the best children's menus around. We only suggest destinations, hotels and airlines that we'd use ourselves, recommending accommodation that fits the needs of family travel. Flight times and short transfers are crucial to ensuring kids aren't waiting around for hours in the departure lounge, so we take care of everything from reserving airport bassinets to requesting children’s inflight meals, and finding beaches with shallow waters. Our specialists have traveled extensively, experiencing the trials and tribulations of family travel, so rest assured your travel plans are in safe hands.

In the event of a problem, we're always on hand and contactable via our emergency line +44 (0)20 8682 5099.
