Half-Term Family Holiday ideas

Half-term traditionally gives you a great opportunity to get away as a family for a bit of time together.

February half-term falls at the point when it’s still grey and wintry so why not get away to Oman, Costa Rica or Kenya for activity, adventure and a chance to go wildlife spotting together on the first family holiday of the year.

May half-term presents you with myriad places to choose your family adventure that guarantee glorious weather and great experiences. Family holidays in Italy range from discovering gladiators and gelato in Rome to water sports and activities in Sardinia, while the beaches and national parks of California are ideally combined on a road trip and the African bush can be explored in Kenya or South Africa.

As the temperatures drop and the nights draw in, October half-term enables you to chase the summer to places like the Seychelles or Mozambique, where you can spend your time exploring or splashing around.  Family-oriented safaris in Kenya or Zambia and malaria-free safaris in South Africa offer a huge range of experiences, while Japan provides a cultural counterpoint to everyday life.

For more inspiration talk to our team of specialists about half-term holiday ideas and they can recommend family-friendly destinations and highlight family-friendly places to stay while discussing the best time to travel.
