Half term ideas

Family days out

If you are on a budget then days out make a great alternative to a costly family holiday. The kids are kept entertained and it hasn’t got to cost you the earth.

London is a fantastic place to visit this time of year with many attractions for children. In October the weather can be very hit and miss, London has some fun places to visit that are indoors such as the London Eye, Madam Tussauds, London Dungeons, Tower of London and Science Museum. If you are lucky and get a warm dry day, London Zoo makes a day out to remember. The kids will feel like they have had a real holiday and ensure they have lots to write about when they go back to school.

Travelling to and within London with the family can be stressful and costly so why not make it easy for yourself, download the minicabit App. Book your days travel and excusions and you won’t have to worry about the kids’ getting worn out from walking or you from battling the underground with the pushchair.

Family holidays

If you’re lucky enough to be heading off for some winter sunshine abroad this half term, then let your holiday begin at the airport. Heathrow Airport offers some great family facilities from play areas to baby changing facilities.

A good tip if you are off to the airport is to use minicabit’s luggage selector to make sure that all your luggage will fit in the cab and you don’t have to leave any behind. This is especially important with the amount of luggage you need to take when travelling with babies or young children.

Coming home from your holiday is never as exciting as going, particularly if you are travelling with children and mountains of luggage. Why not book a cab with minicabit for when you land, with prices starting at £34 from Heathrow T3 to central London, its quick, easy and cost effective for a family.

Whatever you choose to do this October half term, remember to have fun, because before you know it the Christmas holidays will be here!!!
