5 Great February Half term Holiday Ideas

School half term holidays are fast approaching. What better way to prepare than to think about your next family break? Half term breaks are an excellent way for kids to unwind from school and parents to have a break from the early mornings of getting the whole house ready. 

Everyone deserves a recharge every so often, so why not make the most of it and go somewhere excellent? So pack up your family suitcases and enjoy a quick getaway. 


February School holiday breaks

With February half term being a week-long holiday for most, it's an excellent opportunity to go away on an abroad holiday or a long weekend camping holiday close to home. 

School holiday breaks involve the whole family, so having enough packing room is necessary when planning a family holiday. At Tripp, we have a great selection of suitcase collections which would work perfectly as family suitcase sets for a family of all sizes. However, choosing a suitcase can be hard when picking just for yourself, so when you add others into the mix, it can be even harder to ensure they reach all requirements. 

When choosing your family's luggage, you can benefit from what you choose. If you purchase your suitcases from the same collection, it will be easier to remember what everyone's suitcase looks like when looking for it on the baggage carousel. Another thing to consider is size; investing in a large suitcase may allow enough room to pack multiple people. This can also save on checked luggage when travelling abroad.


Stay Close To Home

A staycation is perfect if you want a holiday this half term but want to avoid travelling far. The UK has excellent staycation options for all families, from city breaks to holiday parks. 

In the UK, we have some significant city breaks for families. For example, London is a trendy destination due to the various tourist attractions. There is something for everyone with the Natural History Museum, Harry Potter Studio Tour, and Buckingham Palace.

Holiday parks are an excellent choice for a family holiday, and there are many great options across the UK. Holiday parks offer so much to adults and kids, from indoor activities such as swimming and arts and crafts, to outdoor activities such as archery and cycling. Centre Parks is great for short family breaks in the UK, with five across the UK and 1 in Ireland; there is bound to be one close by to you. 


European Breaks

February half-term provides an excellent opportunity for families to catch some sun during a cold winter. Athens, Greece, is one of the best European city breaks for families. With many historic sites and museums, there is enough to entertain someone of any age; with the greek islands being a short trip away, it's an excellent place for exploring as a family. 

Another famous family European city destination is Copenhagen, with many child-friendly attractions for kids of all ages. With endless things to do, such as Tivoli Gardens, The Blue Planet Aquarium and Copenhagen Zoo, it will be a trip to remember for your family.


Winter Sun breaks

If you want to escape from the UK weather this winter, why not travel to a warmer location? Winter sun holidays are trendy during February half term for families to catch some rays. Popular winter-sun destinations include Cape Verde, Mexico and Egypt. 

Cape Verde is great if you fancy catching some waves. If you like to windsurf or surfboard, this holiday location could be for you. With all-inclusive resorts, it's great for families to relax by the pool, eat food, drink and participate in various activities. 

Egypt, known for its great culture, is a great place to visit in the winter due to the extremely high temperatures in the summer months. Visiting in February, you are still bound to get great temperatures of up to 25 degrees, the perfect temperature for your little ones. In Egypt, there is something for everyone. It’s a fantastic location for trying out watersports, meeting turtles and taking in some history with a tour of Cairo.

All inclusive holidays

All inclusive holidays are great for a family who wants to escape and wants all their food and drink provided, it’s a brilliant no hassle approach with resorts providing excellent choice and variety. The Canary Islands is a great location to catch some winter sun and escape the cold fog in the UK. So enjoy the sun with temperatures as high as 21 degrees in Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and Gran Canaria in February. The Canary Islands are a popular destination, as shown on TUI, due to all being family-friendly. 

An all-inclusive is worth it for families who like to relax on holiday. All-inclusive holidays include travel, accommodation, food and drinks. Activities, entertainment and childcare are also included, which is great for parents looking for free time. All Inclusive holidays are calculated on a one-off fee; therefore great if you are looking for a holiday with a fixed budget.
