Family-friendly Vacations--a Hot Travel Niche!

Family travel is one of the hottest travel niches right now and is expected to continue to grow as people realize the importance of spending quality time with their loved ones. Family-Friendly Vacations, Inc. is a new travel agency and tour operator specializing in trips for families traveling with children. All featured products/services are family-friendly and include unique accommodations, themed packages, cruises, RV rentals and family reunion planning, as well as fun alternatives like family camp and home exchange referrals.

According to recent research by Gary Sain with top travel research firm Yesawich, Pepperdine, Brown & Russell, “Since 9/11, there has been a renewed dedication to family. American families are building firewalls to protect their cherished time together. Eight in ten parents wish their family spent more time together as a group. Seven in ten wish they had more time to just sit and talk with their kids. Almost four in ten leisure travelers take at least one trip with children and six in ten parents are willing to take their children out of school for a leisure trip.”

Sain also reports that, “Grand travel, grandparents taking grandchildren, is also on the rise. Twenty-one percent of grandparents take grandchildren on at least one leisure trip, now called ‘grand trips’. Also, sixty percent of business travelers are now combining a leisure trip with a business trip, which reinforces the importance Americans now place on their leisure time.”

Family-Friendly Vacations, Inc. is unique in that few other companies offer the expertise, knowledge and online booking capabilities targeted to the family market. Says Staci Blunt, President, “Family-Friendly Vacations is dedicated to making travel enjoyable, easy and fun!”
