Family Vacations, Child Discounts and important “Kids Stuff”
We offer great Family Vacations tailored especially for you and your children.
We have the ‘Inside Scoop’
Let us help you get the most ‘bang for your buck’ by sourcing the best Child Discount deals & most kid-friendly conveniences for your flights, hotels, resorts and tours.
If you have children who will be aged between 2 – 11 years when departing for Australia, New Zealand & Fiji then generally they get 25 – 33% discount off the adult airfare (25% International, 33% Domestic). Infants aged between 0 – 2 years get approximately 25 – 90% discount off the adult airfare (25% infant with a seat, 90% lap child). These discounts may vary for different airlines.
Long haul international flights are fully equipped with award winning in-flight entertainment systems specifically designed to cater to all ages. Games, movies, TV and music are all available with parental controls. There is a system for each person in every seat of the plane. Traditional kids-kits with coloring books & activities cards are also available. Special child, toddler and baby meals are to be requested in advance. If traveling with infants and young children, you will be invited to board the aircraft before other passengers whenever possible. Seats next to bulk-head mounted bassinets are available for you and your baby (or young child) to make your flight more comfortable. A limited supply of diapers and baby wipes are available onboard. Flight attendants will prepare, heat and wash bottles or pacifiers (dummies) on request. Although there are no private areas onboard the flight to breastfeed babies, you are welcome to feed your baby in your seat. You’ll find baby changing tables in selected washrooms on the flight. If you want to bring your entertainment, portable electronic equipment such as laptop computers (including WiFi & Bluetooth enabled devices), PDAs (without cell phones), personal music (for example, iPods) iPads, ebooks and electronic game devices may be used in flight (except for take-off and landing).
Nursery facilities and parents’ rooms are provided at most major airports.
We’ll make sure you stay at our preferred hotels & resorts that we know are kid friendly, offer great child discounts, kids meals, fun activities & related child services. Cribs (we call them “Cots” in Australia) are available at select hotels on request.
If you want to venture away from the resort activities, then we can recommend fun day tours and activities for you and your kids to explore. Whether its for teens or tots we are sure to find something fun for all: cuddle a koala, feed a wallaby, learn to surf, or maybe your pace is for theme-parks or leisurely sightseeing. At some unique destinations your kids can participate in carefully designed environmental programs that help them learn about caring for wildlife and the environment.
Access to medical facilities varies by location. Please let your Travel Specialist know if we need to accommodate for any specific medical needs during your family vacation.
All children aged 12 months or less must be secured in a child restraint in taxis, cars & buses. We recommend you bring a child restraint with you. In some cases child restraints can be ordered in advance (subject to availability), however in most cases they are not provided.
