Multigenerational Group Travel
By Tully Luxury Travel | 08-25-2022 |
Showing no sign of slowing, traveling with the family has worked its way up the wish list.
It’s not very often that you see a travel trend and instantly know it is here to stay. In fact, you may wonder why it took so long for luxury multigenerational family travel to become as popular – and, well, as smart – as it is now. These days, the retired, healthy and often wealthy generation of grandparents is itching to spoil the grandchildren. There are many benefits to consider.
You can get used to the pace
When things slow down, everyone relaxes. Remarkably, time seems to slow along with you. Sometimes simply by gathering everyone up for a field trip or a meal out, the journey becomes a holiday. There’s no “hurry up and have fun” element to luxury multigenerational vacations – you’re already living it.
Have the ultimate bonding experience
The most obvious upside to multigenerational travel is the opportunity to create shared memories together. Family time is precious, particularly for those not living in the same city. Bringing everyone together reminds you just how cherished family is – and why you miss them when they’re not around.
Planning invites simplicity
With parents and grandparents, it’s easy to let Tully Luxury Travel make the plans, and then just let them roll out as per the agenda. Don’t worry: the downtime gets scheduled, too. Family-friendly luxury villas seem to be all the rage, providing a great home base around which the family fun revolves. All-inclusive resorts are even easier, as everything is mapped out – you just have to jump right in. Cruises, too, make it smooth to follow along. When you don’t have to constantly quarterback on the fly, you have more time to spend with the group.
This is a bit of an opposite viewpoint, but Grandma and Grampa are most likely thrilled to get you out of the house so they can enjoy their grandchildren. But seriously, if you want to escape for a romantic evening out, there’s someone to cover for you when you travel with family members.
Goes easy on the wallet
Multigenerational family travel is often good value – you get deals because you’re booking in bulk. Groups also receive perks such as free rooms or added excursions, parties, or picnics – nice add-ons that layer in extra extravagance.
It’s good for you!
When all is perfectly planned, the course is set. Your clan can reconnect, step out of their comfort zones, learn something new, take a break from routine, and enjoy all the physical and mental health benefits luxury multigenerational trips can generate.
