Happy kids make for happy holidays
April 2017 838

Children are ‘wearing the trousers’ when it comes to deciding where to go and what to do on holidays, a Holiday Inn survey has found, as parents admit ‘keeping the kids happy’ makes for a more memorable and enjoyable holiday.

Seven in 10 respondents of the Holiday Inn ‘Do More of What You Love’ survey, which saw travellers across the Asia, Middle East and Africa (AMEA) region offer insights into family holidays, say it is important to get their little one’s input when choosing how and where to spend precious family breaks.

Over 80 per cent of mums and dads in almost every country surveyed always, or at least frequently, chose holiday destinations based on making sure their kids will be occupied and happy because it meant a greater possibility of getting more ‘me-time’ for them. In particular, it was Indonesian, Saudi and Thai parents who say choosing a destination catering to their children’s interest each and every time they holiday makes for a better, more relaxing break for themselves.

When it’s time to wrap up the trip, for most travellers the best holiday souvenirs are the memories made.
