Best Months to Travel with Babies and Toddlers

With school-holiday getaways commanding premium prices, those with pre-school children are well placed to take advantage of the lower prices that are available to those who can travel during older children’s term times.

But there are other reasons to travel outside the school holidays, namely the fact that the weather is mild (young children can find high temperatures and strong sunshine hard to cope with) and resorts, beaches and other attractions are less busy.

TUI’s Family Life resorts in the Mediterranean are the perfect example of a good place to take babies and toddlers during other children’s term times. The weather in this part of the world is ideally suited to those travelling with younger children from May onwards, which essentially means you can travel in May (except in half term), June and much of July (the main school holidays tend to start in the third week of July but can vary by region and for other reasons).

Conversely, September is a brilliant time to take a late-summer break with pre-schoolers, with October still warm enough for a gorgeous getaway. At this time of year, we do recommend investing in light wetsuits for the kids because outdoor pools are not always heated. Alternatively, cover yourself by choosing a resort with both indoor and outdoor pools, such as the TUI FAMILY LIFE Tropical Resort near Dalaman on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey or the TUI FAMILY LIFE Flamingo Beach in Lanzarote. Other Family Life destinations include Croatia, Corfu, Menorca, Mallorca, Salou, Gran Canaria, Cyprus, Rhodes, Ibiza, Kos, Southern Spain (Costa de la Luz) and Halkidiki in Greece.

As the name suggests, TUI Family Life hotels and resorts have something to suit all generations, from tinies to grandparents. New mums and dads can count on dedicated feeding areas and all the baby and toddler equipment they need, while teens can carve out their own space and make new friends in funky hangout zones.

As our recent customer Lianne R summed it up: “I couldn't have asked for a better holiday for us and for our toddler. I was apprehensive about going all inclusive in Europe but my mind was quickly put at rest. The hotel catered very well in the buffet for adults and children. The food was varied and tasty. The facilities for children were fantastic - there was always something for them to do. Our little boy loved his three sessions in the Baby Club. The staff were brilliant and very caring. Another concern was that the hotel would be too child-orientated, but there was a quieter pool for adults and activities primarily for adults. We had a fabulous time at the TUI FAMILY LIFE Mallorca Mar and would not hesitate to return.”
