The days are starting to warm up, and there’s no better way to say goodbye to winter than to pack up the family and escape to a tropical location. A number of vacation spots are ideal to visit in April, and with a little planning, you could be enjoying the perfect spring family getaway under the sun.
Wait a Few Weeks
Many families head out on vacation during the March school break, but if you’re able to wait a few weeks you could benefit from drastic reductions in vacation prices without sacrificing temperatures. For example, in mid-April, rates in the Caribbean drop even though hurricane season doesn’t start until June.1 The drop in demand right after March break has many resorts significantly lowering prices to keep rooms full during a notoriously slow month.
Beat the Rush of Tourists
A spring family getaway doesn’t always have to include the beach or a poolside resort. April is also a good month to get ahead of summer tourists in Europe. While the weather can be unpredictable in some countries, you could be rewarded with lower prices and shorter lines to tourist attractions.
The best advice for a memorable spring family getaway is to pack for the destination. A trip to Hawaii in April will require beach clothes, but a trip to England will probably require a raincoat and umbrella. And wherever you go, don’t forget to purchase travel insurance.
