The Best Easter Family Breaks
With half-term already a distant memory, many of us at Holiday Extras are thinking about the Easter holidays. So, are you in need of a little break? Here's our pick of the best breaks for families this spring. Make sure you also check out our UK School Holidays page to pick the best time to take your little ones away.
Family holidays for Easter
Skiing in Europe
Pack up your family and your winter woolies, and head to France, Austria, Switzerland or Italy for a week on the slopes - your last chance this season. There are good deals to be had at resorts across Europe, some including free kids' places, lift passes or ski hire. Check out Ski World and Igluski for starters.
UK theme park breaks
If you don't fancy transporting the troops overseas, a theme park break at home could be just the ticket. A whole world of fun is waiting for you and it usually starts at Easter, so book as soon as you can.
The Canaries are a great Easter option for pasty Brits in search of sunshine. Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and La Palma offer family-friendly accommodation, activities and best of all, warm temperatures and sunny beaches.
Take a look at Travel Supermarket which features well-priced holidays from great value family brands including Thomson and First Choice.
Scottish family adventure holidays
The Easter holidays provide a great opportunity for us to explore our very own British Isles. If you're a get-up-and-go type of family, an adventure holiday in Scotland or Wales could get your spring off to a lively start. Take your pick from canoeing and kayaking, mountain biking, white water rafting, indoor and outdoor climbing, gorge walking, sailing, and wildlife safaris.
Wilderness Scotland offers family adventures for small groups and private trips for individual families; covering the West Highlands, Loch Ness, the west coast and the Cairngorms National Park.
PGL has been organising adventure breaks since 1957, with family trips to the Isle of Arran and Perthshire available as well as other parts of the UK and Europe.
Book your holiday extras early
It pays to book your airport parking, airport hotel or your lounge as soon as you book your flights. Prices usually go up nearer the date you fly, and last year Holiday Extras saved our airport parking customers £59 each on average when they pre-booked their airport parking instead of paying on the day.Book my hotel and parking today
"On that trip I learnt something very important. Escape through travel works. Almost from the moment I boarded my flight, life in England became meaningless. Seat-belt signs lit up, problems switched off. Broken armrests took precedence over broken hearts. By the time the plane was airborne I’d forgotten England even existed."Alex Garland, The Beach
