News in brief:
Kids fly free to Scandinavia
This deal works on short haul flights from the UK to Scandinavia.
Out of curiosity I tested it to see if, as a single parent with 8 kids, you really won’t have to pay for any of the children.
I looked at a flight from London Heathrow to Copenhagen on the 25th November coming back on the 27th November. The price for 1 adult and 8 children came up to £116.21 in total – but that excludes tax.
Looks like a cheap (and stressful) weekend away.
You do have to pay taxes for the children’s flights though. Once you’ve clicked BOOK a fee of £29.81 for the outbound and £21.60 for the inbound flight is added to every single child and the price goes up to £527.49
This is still cheap for a weekend away for nine people. But without a husband and two nannies with me I wouldn’t take this trip!

If you don’t have eight children, the current Macdonald Hotels & Resorts offer might be of more interest.
