Learning about different countries and cultures is an integral part of any child's school life and to be able to visit these countries will ignite their interest even more.

At an age when children can appreciate more of what they are seeing and experiencing and are keen to learn more, there are limitless possibilities for family holidays.

The ability to entertain themselves for longer as well as more flexibility with food, accommodation and weather conditions, means longer flights and more exotic or off-the-beaten-track destinations are possible.
