My family loves to travel, and I rely heavily on referrals and reviews when booking a trip. I have recently discovered Thomas Cook Kids First, and it is exactly the type of information I am looking for!


For parents, planning a family vacation can be a daunting task especially if you haven’t done your homework on kid-friendly travel options. And what parents think their kids will enjoy can often leave young ones wondering if they’re actually related to mom and dad.

Introducing Thomas Cook Kids First (TCKF) – a program designed to create memorable family vacations – from the company that invented packaged holidays.

Thomas Cook Kids First offers real opinions from children who have been on their trips. I love this because we all know children don’t filter themselves they way we do as adults, and they will definitely tell you what they think. I really like hearing from another child’s perspective because kids know what other kids will like. Take a look at this video…

He is cute as heck and definitely comfortable in front of the camera, but he also really got his message across about what kids would like at Beaches, and he let me know that there is plenty to keep my kids occupied if we went there. When you do book a family vacation with Thomas Cook Kids First, you are sent a Welcome Package to help you plan your stay. It is equipped with gift cards to get you prepared for the trip, coupons for free seat selection, Park ‘n Fly savings and event a free airport lounge pass.
