What are the cheapest family holiday destinations?

If you're a family on a budget, there are plenty of cheap destinations packed with child-friendly resorts and hotels. The Balearic island of Majorca is a great all-rounder offering the promise of fun and days out to its three great water parks.

The Algarve is another wallet-friendly option with long stretches of sand, kid-friendly attractions such as Zoomarine and a welcoming atmosphere on its side. For sunshine breaks, Tenerife, with its year-round sunshine and Siam Park, is hard to beat – you'll also find the local restaurants serve a tempting mix of local cuisine and child-friendly favourites such as burger and chips. And fast scaling to the top of affordable family breaks is Bulgaria. Resorts such as Sunny Beach, with its fairground attractions, Blue Flag beaches and nearby historic sights, it's the ideal venue for an action-packed family break.

What are the best family holiday destinations?

When it comes to finding the best destination for your family, think about the needs of your group. Close proximity to a beach is a must, and preferably a sandy one for sandcastle building and no-fuss paddling. The Balearic Islands are ideal, with Menorca offering a low-key break ideal for toddlers. If you're travelling with older children or teens, Majorca might be more to your tastes, with a great mix of beach life, water parks and day trips. The Canary Islands also offer a winning combo of attractions and beaches, while Croatia is another contender offering fascinating cities and seaside resorts. Those wishing to venture further afield should consider Mexico and the increasingly popular Cancun. With silvery slivers of sand, fascinating Mayan ruins and water sports on the agenda, it's the perfect destination for tweens and teens, plus the hotels often have supervised kids' clubs so parents can get a well deserved break, too.

What does a family holiday include?

What is included in your family holiday depends on the type of holiday and package you go for. With Holiday Village, expect kids' clubs, splash parks and family-friendly entertainment in resorts across the Balearics and Canaries. There's also lots of activities such as the Football and Stage Academy to keep them smiling.

TUI Family Life can offer a mix of toddler-friendly and parent-pleasing features, including kids' and teens' clubs across their resorts. You can also expect plenty for the grown-ups such as pools, luxury spas and entertainment. Parents who crave some time alone may prefer the upmarket TUI Sensatori collection with its winning blend of kid-friendly areas and adult-only pools. When it comes to great-value family holidays consider going All Inclusive, which means all your flights, transfers, meals, drinks and entertainment is all included in the price of your trip.

Where to go on a family holiday?

When it comes to deciding on your family holiday, have a think about what you really enjoy doing on holiday. If you want fun, beaches and the occasional day trip, then Spain and its sun-drenched Costas could be the way to go, especially with pre-school kids. Greece and her islands are also popular with the likes of Rhodes and Corfu annual favourites.

Italy also welcomes families so whether you want to see historic monuments such as the Trevi Fountain in Rome or relax on the Amalfi Coast, la dolce vita is yours for the taking. If you're after something more exotic, Turkey enthrals with sandy spots and colourful bazaars offering an appealing mix of attractions. Or for an all-out cultural adventure, consider Thailand, where you and the kids can explore the streets of Bangkok or spend the day with the elephants of Chiang Mai.

Do family holidays offer free child places?

You'll get much more for your money when kids go free, especially if you're taking more than one child. The savings can really add up – most free child places cover you for one free child place, and the age limit is usually up to 16, so you're on to a winner, especially if you're splashing out on an all-inclusive holiday. If money is an issue, then the free child place can make that dream family holiday a reality. Plus, if you opt for destinations such as Florida or the Canaries, you're pretty much guaranteed some sunshine!
