If you are lucky enough and well off enough to have been able to take your family away on a luxury holiday once or twice a year, that must have been fantastic, especially for your kids, but for many more the cost of bringing up young children and paying a mortgage has left them unable to do the luxury stuff and most have had to settle for caravan or camping trips at home or at best, the occasional cheap package deal somewhere in Europe.
None of this will detract from the fond memories of family holidays together when the children are grown up. In fact, most luxury and exotic holidays and cruises are probably a bit daunting for young children who would rather enjoy the rough and ready pitch up and get stuck in of the camp site.
However, now your children are adults and probably want to make their own holiday arrangements (except for when a babysitter is needed), you may now find yourselves in a better position financially and time wise to start thinking about treating yourselves to that luxury Caribbean holiday or cruise that has so far eluded you.
If you have ever dreamt about strolling along the white sands of Barbados and watching the eggs of the giant turtles hatch and make their escape to the sea, or make friends on a cruise, visiting different places along the way, then maybe this might just be the right time to do it.
All inclusive holidays are often the best because that way you can forget about the extra cost of paying for meals. For that matter you hardly have to worry about taking a lot of spending money if all the meals and drinks are taken care of.
For those who still enjoy going away with the extended family or who prefer the more private and independent set up, there is always the Villa Holiday
There are quite a few well established Villa Holiday companies offering holidays throughout Europe and Worldwide who can tailor a villa holiday exactly to your needs and requirements, so if you want to go away with your children and grandchildren as a party, or just get together with a few friends, a luxury villa holiday might just be right for you.

TRAVEL/HEALTH INSURANCE IS ESSENTIAL.
Once you have decided to book your holiday the first thing you must consider is Travel/Medical Insurance.
For most of us the likelihood of taking ill while we are abroad is slim, but nevertheless it does happen to some people quite unexpectedly, or they may be involved in an accident. Whichever it is, the cost of taking out a Travel/Medical Insurance in comparison to the astronomical medical fees you could be liable for should anything happen to you while you are away.
Of course when we are a young age and healthy the cost of insurance is usually very cheap, but as we get older, sometimes medical conditions kick in, but just the very fact that we are now at a more advanced age poses us as a much higher risk factor to most insurance companies, consequently making their premiums much higher, so it really does pay to shop around is you are over fifty and looking to take out Travel/Medical Insurance.
