The Rise of Multigenerational Family Travel

Holidays provide an opportunity to get away from the stress of modern life and busy schedules. The pandemic prevented many people from spending enough time with their families, particularly grandparents and their grandchildren, hence there has been a noticeable rise in multigenerational family vacations.

Traveling with three or more generations is generally considered multigenerational travel. Apart from life’s everyday distractions and long working hours, families can spend uninterrupted time together. Even the simplest experiences, such as a meal, can become cherished memories. The benefits of this scale of family travel stretch through every generation, especially for kids since travelling can benefit their education and social skills as they receive hands-on learning of cultures through trying new cuisines and perhaps picking up some of the languages.

 

How to Plan a Multigenerational Family Trip

As with all trips, proper planning is essential to ensure the trip goes smoothly and is enjoyable for everyone.

 

Finding Something for Everyone to Do

Since you’ll be travelling with multiple generations, you’ll want to find something that will suit everyone’s fitness and activity level. At The Capital Hotels & Apartments, you can entrust your kids to the care of our childminders in the play centres while you enjoy solo downtime in the gym or spa. We also have on-site restaurants ideal for family dining or take advantage of the complimentary shuttle service that will drop you off within a certain radius from your accommodation and enjoy a day out with your family.
