Vacation is a family holiday

Summer, vacations and holidays are on the calendar already. Every time when planning the vacations we want to make them comfortable, fun and exciting both for adults and children.

The European countries continent offers the greatest range of opportunities: various festivals, medieval castles, modern ski resorts, beautiful beaches.

Bulgaria, Greece, Croatia, Montenegro, Spain, Italy – these countries are the Transcarpathian dwellers Mecca tourism because, in addition to the gentle waves of warm sees they offer to get acquainted with the architectural and cultural heritage wealth. As for the eastern Turkey, Egypt, UAE, Tunisia, in addition to the foregoing, they continue to attract tourists with high service and food in the system of all inclusive year by year.

To somebody’s taste and wallet

You have to learn the climate peculiarities and take care of the proper documentation for the border crossing before you select a country and a recreation type. In addition, the travel agency director Melita Rishko pointed out: when you are going on vacation with your family in warn countries, you should pay attention to your financial possibilities and decide where to rest: in a hotel with all inclusive system or in a small house by the sea.

When planning the vacation with a child in order to save the travel expert Olga Popadiuk advises to choose the country where your child will be able to have a rest for free. For example, some hotels in Bulgaria provide the significant discounts for children under 12-year, Turkey – even to 16. It is worth paying attention at the children’s club presence that includes special pools and playgrounds, the animators’ supervising.

Packing suitcases

If you have a problem of what place to choose for your vacation, the tourism expert Viktoriia Guta offers at first to decide what kind of vacation you want to choose for yourself. Tour sale managers advise to pay attention to the fact that the countries, washed by the Mediterranean Sea (Turkey, Greece) have more calm water without any storm waves. The Aegean Sea is not so gentle, but the azure color water creates a very beautiful landscape from everywhere, while the Adriatic (Croatia, Montenegro, Slovenia) is colder, therefore it has a little vacation season – only the summer months.

Families with children may choose holidays in hotels with all inclusive system in Turkey, Greece, Egypt or where there is a popular apartments hiring with the kitchen block (Montenegro, Croatia, Bulgaria).

As for the young people, Melita recommends vacations in the Turkish or Egyptian hotels with all inclusive system or rent cottages in Montenegro, especially in the town of Budva, where, due to the well-developed infrastructure you can combine both relaxation and entertainment.

By the way, Egypt welcomes tourists throughout the year. The Mediterranean Turkey coast invites from May to October. According to the Turkish resorts characteristics, then they are almost identical. Nevertheless, it is necessary to ask the agent about the coastal zone and the distance to it.

You can spend a family vacation with benefit in the countries of the Adriatic Sea, because there is a mild climate, warm sea and high mountains covered with pine tree forests.

As for the Croatia beaches, it is worth to be noted that they are diverse. For example, there is stony, gravel and natural recreation platforms and artificial plates in Istria. The local hotels are mostly located at 50-200 meters distance from the beach because of the rocky relief. All the recreation areas are municipal, cleaned and well equipped. Beds, umbrellas and towels are provided at an extra charge.

The beaches are gravel, rocky and concrete in the South Dalmatia, and sandy on the islands near Dubrovnik.

As for the neighboring Montenegro, the recreational area is diverse: there is a city, free of charge and private beaches that are separated in the small bays. It is hard to go into the water too because of the large rocks under the water.

Across the border – to the dream

What concerns the transport you can get to the selected country by plane, bus or car. When choosing the type of travel you should consider the following: the plane is comfortable, but expensive, bus is uncomfortable, but cheap. As for the travel in your own vehicle, even though the financial cost of fuel is considerable it is very convenient, especially when taking into account that our region has a great travelling location in Bulgaria, Montenegro, Croatia, Slovenia, Greece and even Italy.

Another aspect is the visa. We need the Schengen visa in order to visit the majority of European countries. There is visa free regime in Croatia and Montenegro for Ukrainians, but still you have to issue the transit if you travel by car. There is a simplified visa regime in Turkey and Egypt.

The second aspect is the children’s transportation problem. Children under 18 can travel beyond our country with the travel document for children or if they are inscribed in the passport of a parent.

Security is above all!

As for the risk with which the tourist could face during the journey, Melita Rishko says: remember about your own security, in particular: do not walk with an open bag in the town, do not leave jewelry in the limelight, do not keep valuable things in easily accessible places for the thieves, keep money and documents in the safe at the reception or our room.

If you do not like the service or the staff behavior in the hotel or restaurant, remember: you can always appeal to administrator, or the owner or the institution’s director.

In conclusions: the fluency in the language of the chosen country is not a problem for those who travels on holiday from the tour operators, because the company always provides person with a guide, who will tell you everything and help. He also advises and sells excursions.

And remember: there is nothing worse than worthless dreams and hopes. Go on only in the recommended hotels and tours, read reviews on the forums, talk to a manager and make conclusions.
