Discover what makes our family holidays so different!
Original Travel has teamed up with the much loved children's party people Sharky & George to inject some (much needed) creativity and fun into the family holiday process.
The focus is on taking as much stress out of the booking process as possible for parents, and adding stimulating fun and educational adventures for the children while away, so making the holiday genuinely family-friendly.
We've spoken to lots of families to find out what would make family holidays better. The result is the perfect collection of features which are included with all our family holidays...
We ask the right questions about you and your children's needs and expectations for the holiday.
We provide a pack containing ideas for good old fashioned fun to keep the little ones inspired throughout the trip, even including the boring bits like airport and transfers.
We have a dedicated Help Our Holiday (HOH) emergency service where you can text or email if the children are in meltdown mode. Get some additional tips on great games and activities, or if it's really bad, speak to a real person.
We have compiled a portfolio of the very best family friendly destinations. Plenty of places make the family friendly claim, few deliver the goods. We know which ones are and why.
Please can someone come up with a better word? Until they do, you get the gist - learning can be fun, and fun can be educational.
You'll want to remember this holiday, so we include a session for the whole family on taking great photos, video, and even trick photography!
Make the perfect family holiday even perfecterer (errr...) with our premium features.
Take your own Sharky & George Fun Guru on holiday, who is guaranteed to find the fun in everything and to keep the children endlessly entertained.
Treasure every moment of your trip thanks to our family media experts that make sure you remember how Shark-tastic your Original Travel was!
Every pack is tailored to the individual child, so rather than bamboozle you with an everlasting list we've got a few examples below
Holidays with the family are amazing, but the actual travelling part is... errr, not always as fun. So, we've worked closely with Sharky & George and our panel of mother advisors and crafted packs of games, toys, and top secret challenges for each child to occupy them whilst on the move, and at the destination itself.
We've put together a collection of favourite family holday destinations, whatever you're looking for we have the perfect family holiday for you.
