When planning a New Zealand multigenerational family vacation make sure you select a location that offers a wide variety of activities so that all of the generations can find entertainment and comfort. Be sure to check with your travel consultant to select the appropriate accommodations- room capacity laws are different in many countries and hotel rooms may have only two twin beds. Be mindful of your transportation needs, many times it will be easier to rent a van to get everyone to and fro, instead of multiple cab rides or transfers. Airfare can be quite tricky when coordination people coming in at different times and different airports. It’s helpful to have a travel consultant to handle these details for you.
