Families with children aged 0 to 12 years, they travels more and more in search of offers designed for them. In this post we will deal with tours cater for them, without considering, for now, needs of teenagers, which for several aspects are different.

Hotels are becoming increasingly careful in offering a wide range of facilities fit for kids aged 0 years, by supplying with equipped areas where you can find, for example, a changing table, a bottle warmer or a playground and relying on family program with captivating activities for kids aged three-years and older. In addition, in the museums are growing projects and kid-friendly areas, bars and restaurants family-friendly, game rooms and entertainment centres for families.

Being a family-friendly tour

 

Travel guides world cannot stand by and watch! The market of families with kids is massive and with an important spending power in the tourism industry, especially in the major American and European cities. That is the moves that can help you to seize this opportunity. For assessing whether a tour is kid-friendly or to plan a new one, the keywords to bear in mind are: entertainment, comfort, safety.

  1. Analyse tours already proposed and select only the ones that can be fit for families (with some changes that we discuss at a later date); or you can start from scratch and think about some tours you can offer to a family with children aged 0 to 12 years.

  2. Verify if each leg meet the needs of the three keywords, by choosing, when possible, kid-friendly locations, in order to make diaper change, the meal or breastfeeding possible; considering time for rest and recreation in a playground or the participation in edutainment activities, for example in a museum.

  3. Plan your tour considering that your purpose is to put adults and kids at ease and to involve them by using a simple and compelling language through telling stories and anecdotes with details, which can catch kids eye. If you can, prepare materials, images, instances or tests, which can help you to convey with them.

  4. Express all these attentions in the title, in the clearest and detailed possible way, by using images that make them known the kid-friendly characteristic of your tour.

  5. Try it and you will realise that as well as being an interesting business, it will be a funny experience for you too. Thanks to the feedback you will receive from families who take part in it, you can improve more and more your future kid-friendly tours or be inspired by them to create something new.
