Breathtaking scenery, historic castles, a dramatic coastline and storybook wonder are just a few words that begin to describe a family vacation in Scotland.
You're searching for flights for your family's vacation and you realize you can save some serious money by buying Basic Economy class tickets.

Perhaps you're looking to gather with your extended family together for a reunion or a celebration vacation to commemorate a milestone for a particular person. Maybe you have a group of friends from college or play group that want to travel together. Congratulations!....you're planning a destination wedding with kids. Your kid's sport team is a great collection of kids and parents that enjoy spending time together and want to do more of it. In the family travel biz we call any and all of these situations a multi-generation group vacation. These types of vacations are becoming ever more popular. 80 percent of vacationers took at least one trip with extended family and/ or friends during the past five years.
If you're a parent looking for fun vacation ideas then a family cruise might just be your ticket to a great time. Surprisingly only about 20% of Americans have taken a cruise. As a travel consultant I find that most people have weird misconceptions about cruises. They've never taken a cruise but have convinced themselves in advance that they won't like it. I often find myself using the same line I did when trying to get my kids to eat healthy foods..."How do you know you won't like it if you've never tried it"?
