Children back in school? Drat, we guess that means you won’t be able to go anywhere. Actually, that’s not true at all. It’s never too late for a holiday, but you might have to modify when you go, how long you’re going to be gone, and what you plan on doing. The weather is changing, so paying attention to the weather reports is going to be more important. But just because you’re getting a little gloomy at home doesn’t mean that you can’t chase the sunshine!
If the kids are due back in school soon, you still have some time to plan things out. On the other hand, if they’re already back in school, you may have to weigh your options. Usually, if you talk to the teacher you can get all of their work, so that their absence won’t count against them. If the teacher seems hesitant, talk to the office staff. A lot of people take a few days of, but they just have to cover for the time missed. Your children are the same way. Unless the teacher has something that they absolutely have to be in class for, it’s usually okay to miss one or two days.
From here, you just have to decide where you’re going to go. This is the time of year where flights start to get cheap, because people are expected to be at work or at school. So if you wanted a weekend holiday, you could definitely take one of those.
We always remind people to take out travel insurance, but they don’t always listen. Please understand that you’re always free to make any decision you’d like, but carrying proper travel insurance goes a long way towards peace of mind. Make sure that you don’t mess that up by getting great travel cover well ahead of the time before your trip. You can get quotes online pretty quickly, so there’s really no excuse not to have travel cover these days.
We want you to have a good time and bring back memories you’ll love sharing with your friends. So don’t overthink things, okay? Pick a holiday getaway, check rates, make the reservations, don’t skip the travel insurance and certainly pack a digital camera or two. You’re bound to have a great time!
