Recently, Clickstay have been learning how important a family holiday is for building long, lasting memories and for the development of children. But, if you’re conscious about money and struggling to scrape together enough to treat you and the family to the getaway you all deserve, we have some good news for you. BA are launching an offer to allow kids to travel with their parents for free on domestic flights, as long as the children are up to the age of 12 and flying with a paying adult. The initiative will launch on the 14th July and looks as if it will help boost tourism in the UK, by encouraging families to travel more. 

But, it doesn't stop there. You can take as many flights as you desire throughout the summer period and children will always fly free with an adult paying full price, and BA have paired with other travel companies to keep the cost as low as possible. Children will be able to stay in a Novotel hotel for free of charge, and you won't have to pay for children travelling between Heathrow airport and London Paddington station on the high-speed train.

"Saving every penny counts when it comes to family holidays so flying kids for free will make it cheaper to fly away for fun and see more of the UK, on a British Airways flight.” Says Sara Dunham, British Airways' head of marketing, retail and direct "We are delighted to be joining forces with other great travel brands to offer families free child flights and discounted holiday deals."

 So, you and your children could be roasting marshmallows over a fire in the forests of Brecon Beacons, in Wales, or taking long walks along the rolling hills in Cornwall and it’s a lot more cost effective than you originally thought.
