The most important point to consider before booking a trip with your teenagers is whether you can afford it. It should not be forgotten that during school holidays many hotels, flights, and cruises increase their prices. So if you want to get a good deal it is best to plan ahead and book early.

For example, during the summer holidays in July and August the rates of all-inclusive resorts in Europe increase by 30% on average!

What do you like? Beach, sightseeing, shopping?

Imagine yourself on a tropical island with an endless white sand beach and turquoise water or in a historical city in Europe. It is important to find out what your teenager and his friends like so you can plan the perfect trip.

The most popular destinations for teens are Paris, London, New York, Berlin, Rio de Janeiro, Sydney, Bangkok…

How old are your children?

If you are traveling with teenagers (10 to 14 years old) it is important that you choose a destination that will please both the young and the older ones. You don’t want them stuck in front of an iPad or computer playing games all day long.

So you should consider choosing an all-inclusive resort that has activities for young people like kids clubs, sports tournaments, dance lessons, or karaoke. This way your children will enjoy themselves and meet new friends. If they happen to have a few moments of boredom they can always ask the hotel staff for some suggestions on how to pass the time.

Traveling to a foreign country?

If you choose a destination abroad (especially in another continent) it is important to consider how your children will get around. Do they like traveling by plane or do they get frightened easily? Or maybe they would rather take the train or rent a car and drive themselves. This way you can decide how much freedom to give them.

For teenagers, traveling abroad is an unforgettable experience that will teach them new things and open their minds. It will help them realize that the world is bigger than their own country!

What are your interests?

If you like doing water sports it would be best to choose a destination where this is possible. Or maybe you like exploring historical places or taking part in cultural activities? If your kids are into nature, climbing, or hiking it would be ideal to take them somewhere with magnificent landscapes. And if they like discos and partying the night away then the best choice is an all-inclusive resort where there is always music and entertainment.

How much is it going to cost?

The most common expenses that parents have when traveling with their children include airfare, hotel accommodations, car rentals, food, and drinks. To avoid any nasty surprises try to find out if your destination of choice has a cheap way of getting around or if the prices in the region are relatively inexpensive.

For example, the cost of living in Prague is one of the lowest compared to other European cities. The transportation system is also very efficient and inexpensive (you can get around by bus, metro, or on foot). And dining out at a restaurant with your family won’t break the bank either!
