The extensive queues at Dublin airport at the start of June are a clear sign that, post-Covid, everyone is dying to get away. I can imagine that most families that can afford it will be trying to have a holiday this year. Travelling with your family can be stressful, even if you aren’t afraid of missing your flight because you are stuck in a queue.

There is nothing worse than watching your careful holiday planning going to waste. Between accidents happening abroad, mystery illnesses, dodgy accommodation, too much heat, challenging food and over-travelled or over-tired children, it is a wonder we ever go away on holidays at all.
