However, taking care of a few things before you head out on your adventures can help minimize your work and hassle while abroad on your family holiday. Travel insurance, child friendly transport and appropriate accommodation can all be researched and booked before you go.

    This article offers a checklist of things to do before travelling abroad with your family.

    1. Book Family Holiday Travel Insurance

    Family holiday travel insurance package deals cover medical and property loss abroad and normally offers discounts over individual rates. These plans are usually quick and easy to purchase, and many can be researched and booked online.

    2. See your family doctor

    When travelling with your family outside of Europe, there might some vaccinations that you or your children will need to get before you go. In some cases, these vaccinations are necessary before you can even apply for a visa. You’ll also want to refill any prescription medications that you or your family need so you have enough to last the whole trip.

    3. Get family friendly transport

    If you’re thinking about hiring a car, reserve one large for your whole family and request whatever infant car seats, child booster seats, or other kid extras you might need ahead of time. Sometimes access to these things are limited, and having them reserved ahead of time will make it easier when you arrive.

    4. Scan your travel documents

    You’ll need to gather up all your family’s travel documents, scan them, and email them to yourself so that you an have electronic access to them at all times in case you need them. You should include all passports, ID cards, copies of your family holiday travel insurance, records of vaccination, doctor and emergency contact details.

    5. Make family friendly accommodation arrangements

    Before you book and pay for your accommodation, be sure that you’ll have access to the things you and your children need to make your stay more comfortable. This might include asking the hotel or resort to provide your room with playpens, cribs, strollers, or baby monitors. Some larger resorts even have child care services on site.

    6. Camera time!

    While on your trip you no doubt be making some amazing memories with your children. You’ll want to capture some of these special moments, and not having the correct camera equipment at hand could mean you may miss some. Be sure to pack extra batteries and memory cards and, if possible, try to get a waterproof case. That way you don’t have to worry about your camera falling in the hotel pool if little hands are playing with it.

    I have recently come back from what I can only describe as the most relaxing and interesting vacation I have ever been on. This year myself and my wife were looking at holiday options and based on a recommendation by some friends we thought that a trip to Ireland might give us a dose of culture and scenery. I had only ever heard good things about the country, so we started planing. We were informed that the best way to see the real Irish countryside was by boat, cruising on the river Shannon which runs through the center of the entire country. So we did our research and booked a cruiser from a little town called Banagher. We had never operated a boat before but we were given a brief class beforehand which made everything easy.

    We booked the cruiser for three nights, we thought that this would allow us time to see the rest of the country and it did. The rest of the country was fantastic but the truth is I never wanted to leave that boat. The river is full of history covering three thousand years, the ruins of churches, abbeys, castles and towers are everywhere and free to explore. Not far from Banagher is the ruins of an ancient seventh century city which you can cruise right up to and walk around. It was all very extraordinary. You will never be cruising for long without meeting a lovely village and stopping in at a pub. One pub we visited was 350 years old and the old part of the bar was preserved from this time. Another small village had huge deserted stone buildings and military towers. A local told us this was in case Napoleon was to attack England by coming through Ireland. All of these structures still stand like ornaments on the landscape passed down through generations until there meaning has been eroded to just spectacular sites. Cruising by low lying green meadows to the sweet backing notes of wildlife all around really recharge my soul. As the famous Irish Poet Yeats said ‘Come with me oh Human Child, to the waters and the wild’ my natural human instincts for exploring, for the wild were satisfied and the scenic delights that crossed my eyes will never be forgotten. Until next year when I will return to the river Shannon.

    There is a company called Discover the Shannon Link: which arrange holidays on the river and were really helpful with us.

    A nice holiday, in nowadays society, is a quite essential thing: not only it is a source of enjoyment, but also psychologically necessary, to get rid of toxins of a whole working year.
    Even if the most luxurious destinations might be too expensive for a number of people, still there is a clear need for a break. For instance, spending all of the available time for holidays in the same place, even a great one, would just replicate the usual daily routine in a different context.

    The Greek isles are certainly among the most interesting places for their stunning naturalistic beauty. There is a high number of islands, some not inhabited even, with many different features: history and untouched nature, crystal clear waters and local products. Some of these wonderful islands are particularly apt for family holidays.

    While online and retail holiday shopping sales have met or exceeded expectations for most retailers in 2005, there is another “rush” for all retailers to prepare for: gift card redemption.

    According to Hitwise, an online intelligence service, the market share of U.S. Internet searches containing the words “gift card” was up 32% for the week ending December 10, 2005 as compared to the previous week. In fact, the National Retail Federation expects gift card sales to increase 6.6% this holiday season to 18.48 billion dollars, with consumers spending an average of $88 dollars on gift cards or 15.6% of their holiday shopping budget.

    Gift certificates have always been a popular gift choice for the hard to please recipient or even for the lazy shopper. For the gift giver, it allows a quick purchase at whatever store or online merchant they select, with a dollar amount that fits their budget. For the recipient, they can select what they want from a particular merchant and for the most part use the card at their convenience.

    But for some, giving a gift card is a cop-out, reasoning it is too impersonal and opting to hand pick a gift and selecting something special and unique for a loved one or friend. However, for some, the gift card is the ideal gift choice, with family or friends even suggesting the store or online merchant they prefer.

    For the merchants, it has extended the holiday shopping season because they cannot record the sale until the recipient uses the gift card to make a purchase. This holds down sales figures in November and December, but provides a boost in January when most cards are redeemed. An additional boost is provided by the fact that most of the shoppers who redeem their gift cards typically spend 15% to 50% more than the face value of the card when they select their holiday gift.

    There are some downsides to gift cards. Some retailers clear unused gift cards off the books by subtracting off of the face value of the card, an inactivity fee (usually $2.50 per month) after a certain amount of time. Some gift cards have an expiration date and others come with special conditions or restrictions. However, consumer outrage has prompted many states across the country to introduce legislation limiting or banning the fees. Additionally, there is no federal law on gift cards but, two Republican congressmen, Joe Barton of Texas and Charlie Bass of New Hampshire, have requested that the Federal Trade Commission investigate the way retailers conduct their gift card programs.

    Is giving a gift card too impersonal? Is it the best gift choice? That question is up for debate and is a personal preference. But with annual gift card sales projected to reach 90 billion dollars by 2007 (Ernst & Young 2005), the gift card is here to stay.
