While high gas prices and the sluggish economy may be giving parents cause for concern over whether they will be able to afford a summer vacation in 2011, take heart. A number of hotels, tour operators, resorts, and cruise lines are currently offering ‘kids are free’ promotions – especially for children under age 12, but often for older children as well.
- Hotels deals: check Holiday Inn, Aston, Hayatt, Westin, and Sheraton resorts for deal information.
- Resort deals: take a look at Comfort Suites in Paradise Island, Bahamas, and the Wyndham Sugar Bay Resort on St. Thomas, Virgin Islands.
- Tour deals: an assortment of ‘kids stay free’ packages are available with Apple Vacations and Cheap Caribbean.
Of course, a number of travel insurance plans also included kids free when they are traveling with adults as well. See the family travel insurance buying guide and the 3 best family travel insurance plans.
