The Family Travel Show, now in partnership with the Daily Mail, The Mail on Sunday and Mail Online, is pleased to announce new dates for 2016. Taking place at London’s Olympia on 1-2 October, this exciting show is the UK’s only exhibition completely dedicated to family travel adventures.
Families come in all shapes and sizes – and so do the holidays they take! Whether it’s a laid back beach break, an educational city stay or an exotic jungle trek, family travel definitely isn’t one size fits all territory. And just like all the best children’s stories, family trips must have one thing in common – a happy ending and a trail of joyful memories along the way.
To ensure you get the most out of your next family getaway, The Family Travel Show is the ideal launch pad from which to explore new holiday destinations and ideas. This is your chance to discover something different, maybe dip a toe into the world of cruising or go wild and plan a safari. You can choose from family-friendly villas and exciting ski trips to tropical rainforest retreats and all-inclusive luxury resorts. The Family Travel Show really will bring together the best specialist operators and family holiday providers all under one roof for one weekend.
As well as meeting with an excellent range of travel companies and taking advantage of their exclusive show-only offers, visitors are also invited to enjoy the show’s NEW interactive features for all the family including the Climbing Zone, the Holiday Photo Booth, a Kids on Holiday Fashion Show and the Small Steps Crèche. The highlight of the show however is set to be the Ask the Experts Theatre – bursting with travel ideas and practical advice from celebrity speakers, travel writers and bloggers, journalists, and family travel experts.
As the UK’s only event created purely for those looking for their next family adventure, the Family Travel Show is an essential date in every parent’s diary.
The Family Travel Show takes place in Olympia London on 1 – 2 October 2016. Tickets cost £8 in advance or £10 on the door, under 16s are free. For full details and to book tickets please visit or call 0844 209 7360.

Are we nearly there yet? is a new online blog run by me, Kara Guppy, and is named as such thanks to my daughter Eliza who always asks that very question when we are less than 5 minutes up the road heading off on our adventures. You may know me from my other family blog
