Now's the time to book family travel

Despite last year’s travel slump, bookings for family getaways have
remained remarkably robust. According to Will Jones, founder of the
U.K.-based adventure outfitter Journeys by Design, multigenerational
safaris are expected to grow 47 percent in 2010. “Travelers now want
vacation experiences that include grandparents, cousins, and even
pets,” reports Brian Richardson, vice president of brand marketing for
Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. In response, tour operators, cruise
lines, and hotels are doing all they can to woo families. Veteran
operator Abercrombie & Kent is offering a 25 percent discount for
children 18 years and younger on all its Galápagos itineraries when
booked by March 31—that’s a savings of up to $1,700 per person. And
Crystal Cruises, which already has an extensive family program, is now
giving extra perks to groups of six or more, including prepaid
gratuities, a $100 onboard credit per person, and a $500 credit for a
private shore excursion.
