Reconnecting Families Through Travel

There is no doubt that one of the top trends in group travel in 2019 is multigenerational travel. When grandparents, parents, kids, aunts, and uncles all travel together in small groups, they not only have a chance to reconnect, but create lasting memories in fantastic destination. Goway Travel can customize an itinerary that fits the interests and budgets of any family, including yours.

Multigenerational family groups travel for many different reasons. They might be celebrating anniversaries or milestones, older family members wanting to relive and share their past trips, exploring family ancestral roots, visiting long-lost relatives, or just wanting to slow down and forge closer bonds through shared experiences.

The type of travel styles requested by family groups are just as varied as their reasons. Cruising is a great option since there are so many activities each day that cater to all ages. Stay-puts in multi-room villas, manor houses or mansions can be very affordable. Self-drive convoys are fun and flexible, and charter mini-coach touring is a great way to see multiple cities and varied landscapes with the added bonus of a tour leader looking after everybody and everything.

Where are these family groups going? Destination around the world are getting their share of the family love. In Asia, Thailand and Bali are especially popular, while in Africa, South Africa reigns supreme. Australia rules the South Pacific for family travel, while in Latin America that honour goes to Peru. But the most popular destination is Europe with the top three regions being Mediterranean countries, Nordic countries, and the United Kingdom.
