Trafalgar celebrates International Day of Families

Guys, we don’t mean to alarm you, but it’s International day of families today!

Personally, we’re still recovering from Mother’s Day, but any excuse to celebrate loved ones is fine by us.

If you need an excuse to travel and are overdue to spend some quality time with your fam, don’t worry, the travel-savvy folk over at Trafalgar have got you covered.

According to a release from the travel company, Trafalgar are industry leaders when it comes to multi-generational travel, and they have some great trips on offer from their 2018 Family Experiences programme.

Spanning four continents, including Africa, following strong demand for the region this year – each of the nine itineraries has been designed with every generation in mind, to guarantee a seamless holiday for all and memories that will last a lifetime.

From riding into the sunset in the USA’s Wild West and staying at a live ranch in Montana, to experiencing the traditional Castles and Kilts of Britain, each carefully-crafted Family Experience delves deep into the destination.

It gives children the chance to learn whilst having fun and allows parents to reconnect as they needn’t worry about a thing. Trafalgar’s experienced family friendly Travel Directors are on hand at all times to unearth hidden gems, tell extraordinary tales and combat any language barriers – so guests can truly enjoy the heart and soul of every place they visit.

Check out their brand new 9-day Pilgrims and Patriots trip, journeying across Boston, NYC, Philadelphia and Washington DC. Guests will take the same brave steps that shaped the land of the free, discovering a treasure trove of pioneer and revolutionary tragedies and triumphs, with symbols of American independence along the way. Families will take part in a Be My Guest experience, enjoying homemade Pennsylvania Dutch cooking while seeing how the Amish live.

“All the chaos of planning a family trip is taken care of, so families can simply have fun together. Get your clients thinking beyond the traditional fly and flop, with the perfect family travel solution from Trafalgar,” Matthew-Cameron Smith, Managing Director of Trafalgar Australia said.
