Free Child Place Destinations

There are so many popular destinations for a family holiday, here are a few of our favourites:

Tenerife, Canary Islands

Tenerife is a fantastic family friendly destination with a wide range of hotels offering free kids places. Try areas like Los Cristianos and Las Americas for lots of choice and plenty to do or the impressive Fantasia Bahia Principe Tenerife in the Golf Del Sur, with it's iconic fairy-tale castle. Tenerife is also great for some much needed winter sun, so if you fancy a beach holiday in December, Tenerife could be for you.

Antalya, Turkey

All Inclusive Holidays

There are loads of all inclusive free child places available across Europe, from Benalmadena to Bodrum and Gran Canaria to the Greek Islands in 2024/2025. And it's so good to know then when you head on holiday abroad, food and drink is already paid for, meaning you know exactly what you've spent. This can really help families who are looking to save, or simply keep track of their spending.

While all inclusive is idea for saving money, don't worry. If you like to eat out and try some of the local cuisine, or keep it really cheap by cooking at home, half board and self catering holidays with kids deals are also available.

When to go on holiday with kids

When To Go

Because the school holidays are the most popular time for families to travel, and therefore, holiday companies don't need as much help filling flight seats and rooms, many of the free child places are available during term time in months like June and March.

Months which have a half term holiday like February, May and October are also popular, and many holiday companies do still have free places, however, due to demand these do sell out very quickly, so you should be quick to book when they are released. October half term is a very popular time, as many families want something to look forward to after the summer.

The summer holidays months of July and August do have free kids places, however, as you can imagine, these get booked incredibly quickly. Destinations like Ibiza, Menorca, and Majorca are incredibly popular in summer for their sunshine and they are easy to get to.

The winter Christmas holidays are another popular time for families to get away, whether that's for an adventurous ski holiday or a winter sun destination like Cape Verde, Sharm El Sheikh (Egypt) or Fuertventura, or somewhere long haul like Cancun in Mexico, or the Dominican Republic. It's rare as they get booked up quickly, but you may even be able to find some last minute free child place holidays in Mexico too.

To see when the easter, summer, Christmas and half term holidays are, look at the website for the latest dates for 2024/2025.

Late Deals

If, like many people, you've been holding out for lower prices, and it's getting closer and closer and you still haven't booked anything, don't worry. There are often last minute free child places available. You might need to be a bit flexible as a lot of the good deals will have gone, especially at popular family friendly hotels. But check TUI and Jet2, and destinations like Turkey, Tunisia, and the Canary Islands which have big hotels and lots of rooms to fill.

Jet2 Holidays With Infants

Holidays With Infants

Infants sometimes travel free on holidays, or they are at a significantly reduced cost. This is because children under 2 years old can sit on an adults' lap, meaning they don't need their own seat and therefore don't need to pay for the seat. They can also sleep in baby cots within rooms, so extra beds aren't necessarily required. This can all mean reduced holiday rates for infants.

It's worth noting that infants under the age of two often go free, and do so with Jet2holidays.
