Tip 5: The joy of packed lunches

The biggest cost, short of the entrance fee, is the cost of feeding the family once in a resort.  Taking a picnic may not appear that cool to your kids but your pocket will certainly thank you! To get the kids on board encourage them to decide what goes in the picnic – the treats and the goodies – and this will help you avoid the temptation of the fast food chains.  Equally, if you are self-catering – it really would be a good idea to work out where the local supermarket is and making family cooking part of the holiday routine.  you could always pack some favourite foods from home and save yourself even more!
