With the Summer lasting until end of September with usually great weather throughout Europe, there is no better month to take a well deserved break with your baby or toddler. Parents realise too late that going on a vacation with pre-school kids is a great advantage until it is still possible.
Here are 5 reasons why you should take your summer holiday in September if you have pre-school children.
1. No more crowd
Summer destinations like Ibiza or Sardinia can be very crowded in the sacred months of July and August. Therefore when you go the beach or have dinner at the restaurant, you feel less overwhelmed with less people around you.
2. Cheaper fares
Train or Flight fares can be much cheaper. You can expect to see prices going down significantly compared to the months of July or August.
For instance you could go to Barcelona as a family of 2 Adults + 1 Child + 1 Infant for £293 return flight from London Gatwick or you could head to Ibiza for £362.
3. Afford to stay in a 4* hotel or a comfy apartment
Hotels know very well how to price their family rooms during peak seasons. When children are back to school, this type of rooms is more difficult to sell. So take advantage of getting better prices for these rooms in September.
For example, you could stay 3 nights in Lisbon with an arrival on Monday 16th September at the Lutetia Smart Design Hotel 4* in a triple room with a cot for as little as £425.
Or you could spend 4 nights in Nice on the French Riviera for £488 (arrival on Friday 13th September) in a great modern apartment not too far from the beach.
4. Leisure parks with no stress
Going to leisure parks like Chessington or Disneyland Paris mean a very long day for parents or children with an awful time queuing for each attraction. In September, you will certainly spend more time on the rides than waiting for sure. Do you need more reasons to take your summer holiday in September?
5. More money on extras
Because you spent less on your flight, you will be able to afford some nice little extras like a morning at the Spa or why not taking a Babysitting service at the hotel so you and your partner can appreciate a date night dinner all by yourself.
