The industry is full to the brim with sizzling destinations and summer holiday experiences. If you've got the kids in tow, you'll really have the world at your feet, thanks to the range of child-friendly hotels and kids' clubs available.
When you travel with a large-scale tour operator, choosing a family hotel means you can usually expect to benefit from plenty of family facilities such as splash pools, child-friendly rooms, and menus with plenty of choices for fussy eaters - not to mention crèche facilities and kids' clubs. Whether you're hoping to keep the kids entertained or let them run riot, you should expect to find plenty of options.
As for the beach holidays, the world really is your oyster. From the golden sands of Portugal and the lively beach resorts of the Spanish Costas, to the black volcanic sands of Lanzarote and the Idyllic, picture-postcard scenery of Cyprus, there's something for everyone.
And there's plenty in the way of day trips too. In the Canary Islands, you can explore its fascinating volcanic geology, or in Malta, soak up its military history in its ancient forts and museums, packed to the brim with artefacts and historical treasures.
Whatever type of holiday 2013 you're after, the package holiday industry is full of choices and is home to an endless array of holiday experiences. Whichever one you choose, you're bound to head home with a head full of many happy and long-lasting holiday memories.
