When it comes to the annual summer vacation, it’s easy to choose the mundane and ordinary package holiday. All-inclusive options on the hotel complex, evening entertainment in the form of cheesy cabaret tribute acts and a kids club tend to be the go-to formula. However, you do have more options. Some families take the perfect family holiday to far-flung destinations like Costa Rica, Macau, Fiji and Uzbekistan.

While you may wonder how they manage to organise such an experience, it’s actually easier than you might think. Take a look at how you could organise a family trip of a lifetime using these surefire strategies.

Don’t Go It Alone

While you might think you are the only mother in the world organising a family trip to Borneo, the chances are that you’re not. Don’t try and fend for yourself trawling through a never-ending stream of flight comparison sites and hotel booking websites. There are many specialist family tour operators who can take the stress out of organising such an incredible jaunt. If you don’t mind paying the planning and preparation of your holiday can be handed over to experts. These experts know the best activities, the most suitable accommodation and the perfect travel schedule for your family. They’ll organise high octane activities for you. Or if you’d rather some chilled out beach days, they’ll sort this too.

Make A List

If you are adamant that you want to visit a distant shore having organised the trip yourself, ensure that you have a well thought out and detailed list before you begin the planning. You should be thinking about visas, flights, scheduling, vaccinations, paperwork, passports, packing, accommodation and activities to name but a few. While it’s just a tad more complex than your usual week in a Balearic, the experience you secure for your family will be culturally richer and more authentic.

The chances are that you may have specific hotels you want to stay at, particular activities you want to experience and certain hotspots that you want to visit. It’s important that you compare the prices for such things on a range of websites. Just because one company is offering a guided tour of the Inca Trail doesn’t mean that this will be the most comprehensive or best value for money. Review sites are the Holy Grail for any well-travelled tourist in the twenty-first century. So, head to Tripadvisor and check out the feedback for every destination, hotel or tour that you are planning to experience.

While daunting, organising a once in a lifetime adventure for your family will create memories that will last forever. And it could end up being one of your proudest achievements and most life-affirming experiences.
