We spend hours searching for our perfect holiday, ensuring that every detail is perfect and most importantly, the kids are happy!
But what is it that kids really want from a holiday? According to a recent survey of 2000 youngsters, this differs quite drastically from their parent’s dream vacation.
Despite sunshine being the main factor when looking for a holiday for most adults, only 20% of children listed this as something they wanted from a trip. Sandy beaches topped their list of priorities (no doubt for sandcastle building), with 67% saying the beach should be no more than a 10 minute walk away.
Despite long-haul destinations becoming more and more popular for family holidays, 55% of children asked, said the journey should take no longer than 4 hours.
Top activities kids expect on holiday are a theme park and water park, with seven out of ten kids saying their least favourite activity on holiday would be long walks.
Surprisingly, 64% of children believe it is crucial they visit a resort where they can speak English when they go on a family holiday, instead of embracing foreign culture.
What do you look for on your family holiday? Or better still, what do your kids look for?
