TC_Logo_Colour-300x199FD and I are planning our very first big family vacation. It’s a bit scary planning a trip for all four of us that is more than a weekend getaway.  Not only do we want great deals on booking our hotel and car rental (if need be) but we are also looking for programs geared for the boys, something to help them enjoy this vacation as much we hope we will.

Thomas Cook Travel’s Kids First Program is Parent Approved!

Thomas Cook Travel’s Kids First Program is kid reviewed parent approved, offers video reviews of some of the hottest destinations from a kid’s perspective, some great advice from Kids First travel agents who are knowledgeable and is also engaging with kids across Canada, asking them to submit their vacation videos for review and a chance to become an official Kids First Travel Blogger to win some fantastic prizes!

Just like adults, kids want information but on their level. I think this program is smart. Kids get to see reviews done by their peers and to learn more about the destinations they may be visiting.
