Travelling with your baby or toddler can seem daunting, especially if it’s your first family holiday. Our Destination Experts are here to help, with a portfolio of baby-friendly hotels and resorts. With plenty of their own, first-hand travel experience to draw on, our team can assist you in planning a break that runs as smoothly as possible and may even provide parents of little ones with some much need R&R.
Many hotels go above and beyond to put parents at ease. As well as supplying all the essentials, like cots and highchairs, there are services like Baby Go Lightly at Almyra in Cyrpus. The hotel can provide all baby’s essentials, including bottles and teats, sterilisers, nappies and swimming nappies and even baby walkers. This means you don’t have to worry about fitting everything into your luggage; it’ll all be in your room when you arrive! Just ask your Destination Expert about pre-booking everything you need before you travel.
If you want a super-short journey time for your little one’s first flight, the Algarve is a great choice. Just over two hours away by plane, its micro-climate provides pleasant temperatures for much of the year. Martinhal Sagres Beach Family Resort has thought of everything for your Portugal family holiday with its ‘Baby’s First Beach Holiday Package’, which includes helpful extras from baby wipes to two-hours of babysitting so parents can have a bit of time for themselves!
If you want to fly long-haul with a baby, that’s no problem either. Major airlines will provide cots and the cabin crew will do their best to help. If you’re flying via Abu Dhabi, Etihad are a great choice due to their complimentary Flying Nanny service!
