Mike Whiting, managing editor of Holiday Extras, said: “Family rooms are an excellent option for those with an early flight or a long journey to the airport, and are a great way of keeping travel-stress to a minimum.”

Families can also take advantage of Holiday Extras’ Airports by Rail, which offers reduced rail rates to selected airports with unrestricted travel times and kids travel FREE**.

To make your booking even simpler, Holiday Extras has advice for those travelling as a family:

- A family room is based on 2 adults and 2 children sharing

- If one child is aged 16 or more, they are considered an adult, and there may be a small supplement to pay – remember to check

- If both children are aged 16 or more, you’ll need to book two rooms

- When you book, be sure to ask if the hotel room is suitable for older children, with adequate sized beds to guarantee a good night’s sleep

- If you have an even larger family, ask if the hotel has interconnecting rooms – some do

- If you have a very young toddler or baby, book a double room and request a cot, rather than a family room

- Book now for your summer holiday for an unbeatable price
