AWARD-WINNING family travel website takethefamily.com has re-launched with more exciting destinations to cater for today’s more adventurous, holiday-hungry mums, dads and kids.
New family holiday destinations include Jordan, Costa Rica and even China.
“Families are getting more adventurous so we decided to change with them and now offer great value deals to even more of the globe,” says Take the Family managing director Lucy Ace.
“Of course many still enjoy a week’s classic bucket and spade holiday in England. But their next trip is just as likely to be to the other side of the planet. So we offer the best of both worlds.”
In fact takethefamily has grown so fast it now features great value deals and impartial advice on 138 destinations around the world and over 370 family-friendly hotels and trips.
A new parent discussion forum, Talk the Family, has already proved a success with mums and dads debating subjects from the best family airline to Australia to the cleanest beaches in the UK.
According to Lucy Ace: “We’ve learned a lot since we started three years ago. It’s like being a parent (although with a bit less sleep deprivation). We’ve learned, grown and developed.
Thanks to families all over the UK we now have over half a million visitors a year and they’ve helped us develop our new look.
”We’ve made the site easier to use, more fun and put our exclusive money-saving offers where everyone can find them. We’ve also added dozens of new destinations from the Canaries to the Caribbean and from Oz to Austria. Our customers can pick up unbiased advice whether they want to see the Big Wall of Hadrian or the Great Wall of China.
“Plus it’s no longer just us giving families help and advice.
Hundreds of parents are joining in our discussion forums with tips and recommendations on family travel around the world.
“After all, there’s no better travel guide than parents themselves.”
We’ve also got plans to introduce a tailor-made on-line service for parents who want even more takethefamily personal care and attention.”
“Some of our most popular features include our advice sections, monthly newsletters and of course our exclusive money saving deals.”
