Family Holidays

The Original Travel family portfolio has grown steadily over the years, as we source new luxury family holiday favourites, but it remains a select few because we know that (despite ubiquitous claims to family-friendliness) few hotels or lodges really have the right 'kidentials'.

Since we launched we have sent parents and their off-spring off to destinations as diverse as the jungles of Borneo to see orang-utans to camping under the stars in the dunes of the Wahiba Sands desert in Oman. We know there's a place for the bucket and spade holiday that the likes of Europe, Mauritius and the Caribbean do so well, but we believe that with our know-how it is now perfectly plausible to enjoy a family walking safari in Africa, or a kayaking holiday in Croatia. Be you holidaying with 4 year olds or 14 year olds we have the right trip for you. After all, family holidays should be as much fun for the parents as they are for the children, whatever age they may be.

Family Holidays Sharky & George-ified

We have teamed up with much loved children's party organisers Sharky & George to bring you the finest family holiday experiences. The partnership aims to improve each and every element of the holiday process, from expert advice at the booking phase to make those dreaded transfers fun, and providing activities and games at airports and in destination. Every child will receive a specifically tailored fun pack of ideas and adventures for them to enjoy on their own, with the family or while bonding with dad. Family Holidays with Sharky & George now guarantee stimulating, fun and educational activities and adventures for the little ones while away, ensuring the holiday is genuinely family-friendly.
