Family holidays are always a great way to build lasting memories that you will carry with you for years to come. They can also, however, be some of the most stressful types of holiday to plan.

Finding things that the entire family can enjoy is a challenge at the best of times, particularly when you all have such varying interests to being with. Moreover, traveling as a family can be frustrating and difficult to arrange.

That being said, there are some things you can do ahead of time in order to make your family holiday more relaxing and fun without all of the stress. Here are just a few tips that can help you to plan a holiday that the whole family will enjoy.


Go Local

One of the most stressful and difficult to coordinate aspects of going on holiday with your whole family is traveling. Making sure that everyone has packed according to airline regulations while at the same time trying to get everyone to the airport gate on time can stress you out right at the moment when you should be starting to unwind and relax.

The solution to this problem might very well be to take air travel out of the equation entirely. There are some amazing holiday destinations right in the UK that can be reached via a relatively short drive, depending on where you live. From Festive Breaks to a week away spent exploring a new city, you can find your ideal holiday destination without ever having to set foot in an airport.

The best thing about going local with your family holiday is that you get to explore a city or region that is right in your local area. While getting out of the country and exploring a holiday away is great, people rarely take the opportunity to explore their own surroundings these days. You and your family can have a great time experiencing more of your local surroundings together while taking a much-needed break from daily life.


Pack Light

Another thing that can quickly derail your family holiday is the packing process. For the most part, getting everyone in your family to be able to pack accordingly is a challenge. You might have a few people in your family who tend to overpack and bring way too many things with them when you go away. Not only can this make it difficult to transport everything all at once, but it increases the likelihood that something will be left behind when you get ready to return home.

Take this chance to teach your family the value of packing accordingly. They will be able to bring everything that they need without overloading themselves with unnecessary items. You won’t have to worry about everything fitting in the car this time, and everyone can relax a bit more knowing that they don’t have to try to keep track of too many items while on holiday.
