Now, we’re sure that if we could all have our own way, we’d be spending many weeks each summer exploring a sunny destination with our families in tow. And then, for a week or two during winter, we’d pack everyone up and hit the mountains for a spot of skiing. The fantasy sounds good, doesn’t it? Alas, if you’ve ever tried to organize a big trip you’ll have quickly learned that traveling is a pretty expensive business. So how do families afford to do it? Below, we take a look at six ways you can have a vacation away with your clan to look forward to.

But somewhere you’ll have money that you spend on luxuries, be it fashionable clothes, dinners at restaurants, or too many presents at Christmas. If you want to afford those getaways, then you have to make them a priority. Put all the money you’d be spending on the things you can cut back on into your holiday fund!
