There's More To Family Holidays Than Disney World

Disney World is a great place to take the family on holiday, but what if your budget can't stretch to it, or maybe you just fancy trying something a bit different this year? There's far more to family holidays than Mickey and Minnie Mouse, so here are some ideas to inspire you when arranging your family travel insurance and booking a fun break for the family this year.


With over 200 activities available at Centerparcs holiday parks, there's something to keep the whole family amused. There are five parks across the UK, all set in forest surroundings with lakes, and woodland to explore. Activities range from the relaxing - spa treatments and the Subtropical Swimming Paradise - to active pursuits for the whole family such as swinging through the trees with Action Challenge, Teddy Bears' Picnic for younger guests and indoor activities such as fencing and fitness classes. There's even a falconry centre and owl encounter. Planning a family holiday with plenty of activities keeps all ages happy. And if the kids are happy, you'll be able to relax.

Activities at sea

Why not book a family cruise? You'll find that many cruise liners offer a wide range of activities aimed at families and younger children, from dance classes to cookery lessons, as well as family excursions on shore.
