Half term - Half Price: snagging a last minute bargain


Throughout the year, Universal Studios and Walt Disney World Florida offer special deals to attract families with children of all ages, and Halloween is a very special time of year! It's easy to find last minute all-inclusive deals to hotels either in the theme parks themselves or nearby, and with so many discounted flights available, all you need to organise before you go is your family travel insurance. Insurefor offer free cover for kids on all family policies, and with a huge range of sports and other activities covered, you can stay active on your break abroad.


Thanks to its relative closeness (bye-bye jet lag) you can enjoy a half term break in Cyprus without wasting any time recovering from the flight. Cyprus has plenty to offer families with children of all ages, whether you're looking for cheap family travel and a family-friendly resort close to the beach or more secluded surroundings. We recommend checking out Pissouri Bay, where you'll find beautiful beaches, orchards and vineyards; perfect for a more relaxing break.


Don't discount the delights of Turkey this autumn as it still has plenty to offer. It's easy to find last minute bargains online, so it's not too late to book your break. The weather in Turkey in October is still hot too, with temperatures averaging around 20 degrees; still warm enough for the beach but even more ideal for sightseeing.

The Spanish Costas

For those looking for a value for money break this half term, or anyone travelling with a larger family, the Spanish Costas are a safe bet. Costa Blanca, Costa del Sol and Benidorm may be packed with other tourists, but where else will you find lively nightlife, great restaurants and child-friendly resorts, at low prices? Majorca is also a good bet for families on a budget, and if you get off the beaten track a little, you'll find there's far more to Spain than meets the eye.

Wherever you head this half term, make sure you have your family travel insurance organised before you jet off, so the whole family will be covered, no matter what happens! Escape the onset of the cold weather here in the UK and enjoy a last minute break in the sun this autumn.
