Multi Generational Travel – Tips and Tricks!

A multi-generational vacation with the whole family can be a great way to bond and create lasting memories, but it can also be a challenge to plan and execute. Here are some tips for having a successful multi-generational vacation:

Start Planning Early

The earlier you start planning, the more time you’ll have to make arrangements and get everyone on the same page. Consider setting up a family group chat or email thread to keep everyone informed and engaged.

Choose a Destination that Appeals to Everyone

Look for a location that offers a variety of activities and attractions that can appeal to all age groups. Make sure that the destination is accessible and convenient for everyone.

Allocate Responsibilities

Divide responsibilities among family members, so that everyone feels involved and has a role to play. For example, one person can be in charge of working with your travel coordinator, another can research activities, and another can handle meal planning.

Consider Renting a Vacation Home

A vacation home can provide more space and amenities than a hotel room, and can also allow for more quality family time. Our agents can help you find the best place for your entire family, without the issues the home-rental companies can come with.  Plus, you can save money by cooking meals together and splitting the cost of accommodations.

Plan Downtime

While it’s important to have a full itinerary of activities, it’s also important to plan for downtime, especially for older family members who may need more rest. This can include activities like reading, napping, or just enjoying the scenery.

Be Flexible

Understand that not everything will go according to plan and that unexpected challenges will arise. Be prepared to be flexible and adjust plans as needed, and keep a positive attitude throughout the trip.

Take Lots of Photos

Don’t forget to take lots of photos and videos to document the trip and the memories that you create together. These can be shared and cherished for years to come. You may even want to consider hiring a local photographer to take professional photos!
