    My family situation sounds similar to yours. We recently booked 4 x RFS seats to Mallorca this summer and are currently looking for a low key resort and accommodation that’s family friendly, but not overdeveloped. In terms of advice as to where to go on a budget, I’d look at Eurocamp type holidays. We’ve flown to Venice and stayed at Marina di Venezia, it was great. I can also highly recommend Croatia. We flew to Pula this summer and stayed in Rabac and booked a Valamar (brand) hotel which was excellent. You also can’t go wrong with the Algarve – Tavira is a great base to stay or further along the coast at Quinta de Largo! Good luck!

    I really appreciate everyone’s suggestions. Plenty of food for thought and it’s great to hear how other families are using their Avios!

    Great advice and apologies for the vague request last night, but I’ve certainly been inspired! I’ve signed up to SeatSpy, booked 4x RFS tickets direct to Palma, during the school summer holidays next year (kids still at primary school) the cash price is £1666, I’ve paid £140! and I’ve decided to double down on Avios collecting to focus on long haul economy options to SE Asia or Japan.

    The reality is, I’m not convinced that younger kids would get much value from long haul business class, so I’ll either have to wait until they’re a bit older or leave them at grannies, while the wife and I escape somewhere for a long weekend!
