Share Article

According to research, the majority of travellers make the assumption that family rooms cost up to twice as much as they actually do in reality.

Family rooms are an excellent option for those with an early flight or a long journey to the airport, and are a great way of keeping travel-stress to a minimum.

To make sure that families get the best possible start to their holidays, HolidayExtras.com is launching a summer of family friendly deals.

According to research, the majority of travellers assume that family rooms cost up to twice as much as they can do in reality.

More than four in ten people (43%) would use family rooms if the price was right, so to help more families enjoy a happy start to their trip, HolidayExtras.com is now offering 3-star family rooms from £49* when booked in advance at http://www.holidayextras.com .

Great deals on family rooms are just one initiative that can make family travel fun and stress-free. In addition, 15 UK airport lounges will now accept children, all bookable through HolidayExtras.com.

For those with babies, HolidayExtras.com offers FREE cots at all of its hotels, subject to availability.

Mike Whiting, managing editor of Holiday Extras, said: "Family rooms are an excellent option for those with an early flight or a long journey to the airport, and are a great way of keeping travel-stress to a minimum."

Families can also take advantage of Holiday Extras' Airports by Rail, which offers reduced rail rates to selected airports with unrestricted travel times and kids travel FREE**.

To make your booking even simpler, Holiday Extras has advice for those travelling as a family:

  • A family room is based on 2 adults and 2 children sharing
  • If one child is aged 16 or more, they are considered an adult, and there may be a small supplement to pay - remember to check
  • If both children are aged 16 or more, you'll need to book two rooms
  • When you book, be sure to ask if the hotel room is suitable for older children, with adequate sized beds to guarantee a good night's sleep
  • If you have an even larger family, ask if the hotel has interconnecting rooms - some do
  • If you have a very young toddler or baby, book a double room and request a cot, rather than a family room
  • Book now for your summer holiday for an unbeatable price

To take advantage of the great value family hotel rooms at UK airports or find out more, visit HolidayExtras.com or call 0871 360 2186.
