We all have dreams of epic family travel adventures with our children and want to create happy memories that last a lifetime, but as with everything these days, money is always at the back of our mind.

We have made travel our life for more than 25 years, and we value stealing back quality time with our loved ones over material possessions any day, but we can’t argue with the fact that family travel is expensive – and gets more expensive as your kids get older.

But that doesn’t mean that travel has to stop. There are ways to lighten the expenses and make your dreams happen and your moments count.

Tips For Family Travel on a Budget

1. Make A Plan And Stick To It

When you have a plan and have allocated budgets, you’ll find it much easier to stick to that plan as you go.

Allow yourself a little wiggle room, and try and save where you can so you can add to your wiggle room later on.

Yes sacrifice sucks, but those small sacrifices can lead to monumental gains in the long run. If you know where you can save money, and do so, then you don’t have to feel guilty about splurging on a bucket list item later on.

2. Travel With Kids While They Are Young

Our eldest, Kalyra, is creeping towards the “adult” age – that is for travel prices and is even now exercising her rights to eat off the adult menu! Plus, she’s old enough for her own room in a hotel rather than paying for a roll away bed.

Don’t run away from the idea of traveling with kids, embrace the chance to travel while rates are cheaper!
