The kids are back to school and the summer is pretty much over so, why not start planning your Perthshire October break today?
It’ll give you something to look forward to and keep the kids occupied during the October half term. Before you book somewhere to escape to, there are a few things you need to think about.
You need to decide when it is you are going to and for how long. If you are just after a weekend break, you can either go the first weekend of the October half term or the second. Both weekends will be extremely popular for weekend breaks so ensure you plan well in advance to avoid disappointment and check availability before you do anything else.
Are you going to travel by car? If so, plan your route in advance so you arrive at your destination during check-in time. There is nothing worse than having to hang about and wait for check-in time to come around.
If, you’re travelling by bus or train to your destination, you should consider purchasing your tickets now. This could save you some money and allows you time to organise any other transport needed on the day in advance.
Perthshire has countless numbers of family-friendly activities that you and the kids will love. Here are just a few suggestions of some of the things you can do to help you start planning your Perthshire October break today.
