When planning an affordable vacation for your family, it helps to keep three things in mind, says Julie Danzinger, director of luxury travel services at Ovation Vacations, in New York City. First, be realistic: “Don’t get too ambitious where you aim to do it all and miss out on those small, little things.”
Second, be patient. With kids in tow, you won’t be moving as fast as you would if you were just going with your partner or friends, so do your best to stay calm when plans fall apart. “The second you lose your patience, the family ends up losing it, too,” she says.
Finally, Danzinger, who along with several travel experts offered exciting destination ideas, says to tell your hotel, travel consultant and guide what you like. The more information they have, the better the outcome will be.
With that in mind, here are 10 destinations where families can save on vacation.
