How to Vacation in the Fall with Kids

North Brookfield, MassachusettsFor clients who have children, taking time off during the fall can be harder, if not just as necessary as getting away during the summer. Family Vacation Critic shed some light on what parents might consider during the more-deals, less crowded season.

Find Out School's Policy

Schools may decide on a case-by-case basis or disallow unattendance altogether, so be sure to check with your clients before booking any flights. Consider airlines or hub cities that have several flights to any one destination, to avoid hefty fees in the event of re-booking or trip changes.

Kids' Education

Where clients' kids are in their studies and what kind of program they're enrolled in could factor into when a client is likely to favor taking a vacation. The older kids are, the more likely keeping their schedule becomes crucial. Clients' children may have specific commitments or need a set schedule, so take possible scenarios into consideration when discussing options for the fall. 

Trip Time

Look for long weekends to keep the trip short. Long flights with children can be as hard for parents as it is for their children. Your clients will thank you for the minimal amount of jet lag on their behalf as well as their children's, and not too much time away from everyone's routine will make their trip more enjoyable.

Timing

Look for time after the first few weeks of the school year and any sports seasons during the year. Consult with your clients, and steer clear of exam periods mid-semester.

Frequency

Be thrilled that your client is taking advantage of all the fall deals during the off-season, and make their fall vacation worth any time taken off. Besides letting them know it is possible to take a trip during the season, make it last until the next choice opportunity comes or, as the case may be, when school gets out and summer begins.
