Back in 2015 a school in Wales had the best idea for all parents. They put together the inset days for the year and gave parents 5 days off but not in school holidays. This allowed them to book a holiday without paying a high price and the Travel Operators can't pick up on this to. So why can't all the schools do this?
On most websites it states that most schools are allowed up to 5 inset days and that it is down to each school to choose which days. Being a mum of 3 myself I know how hard it is, I really dislike giving higher costs out to my clients in school time as I don't think Airlines/Tour Operators should be able to make money on quality family time you will never get back! Not all parents and families can afford high prices and end up having to take their children out of school in term time which usually involves the parent getting fined and not to mention the child missing out on school work.
I don't quite know how to start this but I am thinking if all of us mum's go to our schools and put this to them it may work and may help the school too, this is the newspaper article for your information -
Lets see if we can beat these prices and all have a holiday that we deserve for the right price.
Please keep me updated if you decide to challenge your school :)
Bye for now

January is the most popular time for many holidays to get booked up, we are now in March.. So what are the best tips to book up early how can YOU save money?
The main point is to remember to book as early as you can to get the better deals, the closer you get to your chosen departure date the more expensive it becomes especially in term time. So when should YOU book a summer family holiday…
Package deals from the operator, the likes of Thomas Cook, Thomson, Jet2 etc start to release FREE child places, discounts and low deposits anything up to 16 months before departure. This is the best time to book as the deposits and prices are low, so look out for deals its never to early to book!
Trips Packaged together by Click2Travel, this is known as dynamic packaging and means that the flight can be booked with a low cost carrier and hotel booked through a bedbank. Low cost flights tend to be out later in the year, keep your eyes pealed as these prices don’t stay low for long. This type of trip is a much cheaper way of travelling and more customers are booking online themselves more often to keep the cost down. The only problem with doing this yourself is you are probably not covered by Atol or Abta and a call center as point of contact. This means if anything happens to the supplier once you have booked your trip, you will not be covered if anything was to happen and will have to source another holiday at an extra cost. When you book with Click2Travel your holiday is 100% covered financially so if anything is to happen with any part of your holiday you will be rebooked on an alternative flight/holiday straight away and of course free of charge.
All Inclusive, Many families are stuck when it comes to older children and always tend to book All Inclusive which is great when they have such a large appetite. Remember if you have younger children it can be just as cheap to go self catering. I find this so much easier with apartments, the mornings you can have a bowl of cereal or some toast (easy and lower cost). For lunch why not invest in a cool box, make your own sandwiches etc another low cost option and little effort needed.
Being a mum of 3 I know how hard it can be to find a good deal for term time, so if you have found something you like or would even just like some advice please feel free to call or email me, it’s what I’m here for. Plus my services are one to one, friendly and most of all FREE.
Thank you for reading my blog post and I hope to help you soon.
