You’ve been a mum for long enough. It’s time to drop your kid off at their gran’s house, hop in your car and get set for the holiday of a lifetime. Yes we’re talking about a child free holiday! That’s right – we all love our kids to bits, but spending some time away from them will only make the heart grow fonder.
So whether you fancy a solitary pamper session or a #BNO with your pals, we’ve assembled a series of travel tips that’ll make your time away worth the effort.
Enjoy airport luxury
Airports in Britain are about as fun as watching paint dry for 88 hours, filled with frustrated crowds and blighted chain pubs.
But if you’re willing to pay a little extra, you can sample a few of life’s luxuries in an airport. For a start, massage booths are available in many larger flight hubs. The majority of these booths operate on a ‘walk-in’ basis. So there’s no need to book an appointment, and they’re a great way to kick-start a relaxing holiday.
If you hate the bother of parking your car at the airport, private valet parking is also available from companies like Looking4.com
The full package
There’s a time and a place for package holidays, especially if you’re too busy to book a trip while you look after your child.
Travel agencies like Thomas Cook and Barrhead Travel regularly host sales. Booking an entire package will make organising a holiday with your friends much easier.
Plan – but not too much
Don’t stay away for too long
If you’re a new mother who needs a child free holiday be ware. Too much time away might leave you pining for your infant like you hadn’t seen them for years. Figure out the perfect amount of vacation time to refuel without going overboard. You’ll be ready to start some grade-A parenting on your return.
