ASK THE EXPERT


Paul Cleary, managing director, Caribtours “My top tip for parents travelling with children is to start doing it as soon as possible. I went to Antigua when our baby was three months old and it’s pretty easy with a day flight. Wherever you go on holiday, it takes about a day anyway, even if it’s in Europe. So going farther afield isn’t drastically different time-wise. I’d also recommend parents bring entertainment for the plane – a new toy, anything to keep kids occupied. And if budget allows, suggest an upgrade, even it’s just to World Traveller Class or Premium Economy. It just provides that bit more comfort.”

SAINT LUCIA Saint Lucia certainly knows a thing or two about far-flung family holidays. Among the


adventures on offer, you’ll find dolphin and whale-watching, zip-lining, scuba diving and kitesurfing, as well as calm waters that make its idyllic beaches suited to the youngest of the brood. Caribtours managing director Paul Cleary says: “Families account for about 30% of our business to Saint


Lucia.” He recommends the all-villa Windjammer Landing for families with small children looking for a self-catering option, or the colonial-style Sugar Beach, near the Pitons, for an ultra-high-end resort where privacy and a plethora of activities – including a free sailing programme for under-10s – are at the core. Book it: A week’s bed and breakfast at Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort, costs from £2,825 for adults and £435 for children with Caribtours, based on a family of four sharing a Luxury Cottage. The price includes flights, transfers and access to an airport lounge in the UK. caribtours.co.uk
