But, according to Sally Wiseman from Escape Travel, there are a few things you can do to pocket some savings. Ms Wiseman said families could reap benefits by thinking outside the square these school holidays. If you can be flexible with your travel dates and holiday destination, you can find great value outside of the traditional period, Ms Wiseman said. A holiday can be just as educational and enlightening for children, especially if you are exploring a new country or delving into a new culture. Ms Wiseman suggests families look for all-inclusive packages to get the best value for money, such as offers that include a free night or free childrens meals in the total cost. Research in advance to be sure you are getting the best package, suitable to the needs of your family. The hotel or resort should be childfriendly and offer facilities that are appropriate to the ages of your children, she said. Kids clubs are a great novelty for little ones, but might not be as enjoyable for teenagers, so look for somewhere that offers water sports, shops or movie nights. Popular destinations for Aussie families at the moment include Fiji, Bali, Europe, Hamilton Island and the Gold Coast. The benefit for Darwin families is that there are some fantastic international flights to Asia at the moment. Air Asia is one airline that flies direct to Bali from where you can connect to a number of other top Asian destinations.
