Let 2019 be the year you create special holiday memories with your family! This is a guest post from breaks.com with some tips on planning, booking and enjoying your 2019 getaway.

Choosing a destination

Working out where to go is an important first step to any holiday planning. If you don’t have a place in mind, don’t worry! Start by working out the sort of holiday you want and the specific destination will become clear.

Firstly, decide when you want to go. If you are planning on a summer getaway then you don’t need to travel far to find hours of sunshine each day. This can, however, be more of a challenge in the colder months! This handy guide from the Met Office will come in handy when in the research phase.  

Sometimes with kids, it is easy to pack the car up with everything you need and drive (vs. flying with children). If this sounds like something possible/bearable for you then France will always be a top pick. You can take the Eurotunnel across the channel and find yourself on French soil in no time at all. Northern France is your gateway to the rest of the continent and you can explore the chateaux’s of the Loire Valley or keep driving south for beaches and a few extra degrees celsius found in Spain. Both options provide a family-friendly holiday with as minimal stress as you can get when travelling with the troupe!

One of the benefits of driving to your holiday destination is that you may be able to be more flexible. Flexibility will enable you to take advantage of last minute holiday deals that the major operators offer to fill up under-sold holidays. Keep an eye on deal sites and forums if you want to pick up a winning deal for your family. Whenever booking, you should use discount codes from companies like TUI to save money and give you a few extra euros to spend!

Driving on holiday is a lovely experience, no need for hot packed coaches or taxis that will cost a fortune, you can hire a car in Greece from just €15 per day at Auto-huren-kreta.nl they offer brilliant service for a stress free driving experience. 

Feeling more adventurous? Scandinavia and the Nordics are becoming increasingly popular with British holidaymakers. Just a few hours on a plane and you’ll be transported to a new world! If you are travelling outside of summer months and happy to brave the cold, look no further than Helsinki, Oslo or Stockholm. They are all beautiful cities to visit and an adventure for parents and children alike!

If you have deeper pockets then it is hard to ignore the allure of Mickey and friends. There are Disney parks around the world so you are never too far away from the Magic Kingdom. If you decide to set the sat nav for Disney then make sure you pack an autograph book, mouse ears and comfy trainers to roam the parks in!
