More and more families are choosing to go on holiday with grandparents these days, with one in seven people over the age of 50 admitting they have been away with their children and grandkids.
There are many reasons why you might choose to go away with grandparents, such as having a babysitter if you want to enjoy a night off and getting assistance with your brood of kids. Of course, it is also time your children can spend with their grandma and granddad and get to know them a bit better.
“Not only can parents recharge their batteries and enjoy some adult time together as their parents are on hand to babysit, but grandparents can create precious memories playing games by the pool with grandchildren,” said Kevin McMullan, head of travel insurance at Saga.
He added that kids are the “real winners” as they can spend time with their “favourite adults”.
Saga Travel Insurance research showed some of the most popular holiday destinations are Spain, USA and France. However, staycations are also incredibly common these days, and many families find it easier and cheaper to book Lake District accommodation to enjoy a holiday that is nearby and hassle-free.
Indeed, according to findings from Direct Line Travel Insurance, 24 million Brits are hoping to enjoy a staycation within the next 12 months, which accounts for almost half of all British holidaymakers.
Ten per cent of these intend on heading to the Lake District, which is unsurprising given the variety of outdoor activities to take part in and beautiful sceneries to explore here.
