Expressions Families provides luxury, tailor-made family holidays to carefully selected four and five star hotels and resorts worldwide, all of which offer excellent services and facilities for families with children of all ages. We offer luxury holidays for families in Europe and further afield, from tropical beach stays in the Caribbean and the Indian Ocean, to more adventurous luxury family tours further afield, perhaps in Sri Lanka or Vietnam. Knowledgeable and experienced travel specialists are ready to offer advice and assistance, paying extra special attention to detail and including services such as pre-holiday menus which allow clients to order items in advance.
For 25 years we have demonstrated consistently our understanding of the needs of the family when taking a luxury family holiday overseas and can provide information regarding room types which are suitable for families, transfer vehicles large enough for the whole family plus luggage, information on getting out and about. We believe that personal service and detailed information is imperative with luxury family holidays. Our website can give you an overview, but it is our specialist knowledge that is second to none and something our clients find invaluable - please do call us.
Whether you are looking for a luxury family holiday in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, the Caribbean or the Indian Ocean, we can recommend hotels and resorts suitable for your needs. As well as stay-put holidays, we also offer family activity holidays and luxury touring holidays for families which can be enjoyed by adults and children alike.Discover the different destinations that we offer or speak to our experienced and helpful travel specialists who will tailor-make a holiday to suit your individual requirements and budget.
With over 25 years' experience as a specialist tour operator, Expressions Families can offer advice, care and attention to detail. Read on to find out why our family holidays are so special... Hotels chosen for families
Our holidays are based on hotels, usually 4 or 5 star or equivalent, that have been chosen because they are 'child friendly’ in various ways, often offering kids' clubs and accommodation for families. The hotels we have chosen here are not meant to be ‘holiday camps for families’ with cafeteria-style dining and shorts at dinner-time, but are high quality properties which we believe will appeal to our discerning clients. Many of these hotels will also appeal to other markets too - it wouldn’t be unusual to find older couples and honeymooners at some hotels at the same time as families (for example, Le Touessrok has an excellent children’s club and arrangements for families but appeals to honeymooners too).
Suitable room types for familiesWe will provide information on which room types are best for your party composition, taking into account ages of the children. Some hotels will allow only one child under 12 to share a room with two adults whilst others will allow up to three children under 12 to share with two adults in varying categories of room at varying degrees of cost. Facilities and activities for all the familyWe give you details of the facilities and activities at each hotel for all members of the family. We advise if there are children’s swimming pools, if there is a lifeguard or not, which restaurants children can dine in, children’s club arrangements, age restrictions on certain water sports for children, medical services, baby-sitting provisions. We also give you information about adult-oriented activities too such as spa treatments, water sports, tennis courts, golf courses and local excursions.Best possible prices for familiesOur pricing philosophy is quite simple; we aim to give you the best possible prices for your family group. To arrive at this, we will have to put together a tailor-made price for you. This will reflect the ages of your children, the type of accommodation you want and will take into account all the possible reductions the hotel gives us for family groups. As an indicator though, we have priced holidays in advance as examples only for two adults and two children under 12 in a variety of suitable room configurations. The ‘from’ or lead-in prices for high and low season are given on hotel pages as a guide only whilst the actual price for your holiday will be calculated by us for you. Please note: the indicator prices given here have not had any special offers applied to them nor have they had any relevant flights supplements added, depending on availability. Apply the relevant offers and the prices might come down. Also remember that prices will vary depending on the number and ages of children travelling. It is always best to contact us for a tailor-made quote.Suitable travel arrangements for familiesOur holidays will include appropriate transfer vehicles for families, either a car large enough to accommodate four or a self-drive vehicle that is a large one able to handle children and luggage for a family. Car seats for infants and children are not included but can be booked at many but not all destinations, (so you might want to consider bringing your own) at a small supplement. Even if we include a transfer for you from the airport to the hotel, you may want to have the use of a hire-car for a few days of your holiday - we can arrange this for you in advance.Unrivalled information availableJust a cursory glance at the pages of our website will reveal nuggets of information about the hotel and services and facilities available for your family. This information has been put together specifically for your requirements and even where we might have worked with a certain hotel in another programme, this information has been gathered and tailored just for families. We have spent a great deal of time and effort in trying to get this right for you to ensure you have the best possible holiday.Unique pre-booking serviceWe are very proud of what we think is a unique service for family holidays. Our aims are to go one step further than providing you with the detailed information we think is necessary anyway and to give you the opportunity to order up specific items, foods, drinks and services in advance. We know that a happier holiday will result when you know what you can take, what can be ordered in advance and what you might want to send. We provide a menu of services for you to complete and send back to us, so that we can make all the necessary arrangements with the hotel. Obviously the list of possibilities will vary from hotel to hotel - some will be adept at supplying sterilising kits and changing mats, others will have arrangements to feed your child à la carte every day.Our website provides a great overview of the detailed information and advice which is available, but to take advantage of our outstanding personal service then please call us.
