    Twin Centre Holidays

    Hi Jenna My name is Pauline and I am one of the USA Specialists at Barrhead Travel. I can definitely recommend this combo, but would maybe start with San Diego and work up to San Francisco with LA in the middle. Can you send me your contact details and I can give you a wee call to discuss further? Thanks. Pauline

    Disney World

    Great time to go with it being a wee bit quieter as most of the children back at School, so queues not so bad in the Theme Parks. First timers in Florida tend to stay on International Drive if they don't fancy driving - shops, restaurants all on your door step. The I Trolley also runs up and down constantly. Some hotels will offer the shuttle buses to Theme Parks, so make sure you pick one that does as a lot easier. I can recommend some to you also. Villas are also popular, with your own private pool - great way to chill out at night after a long day at the Parks! If you go with a Villa however, you will definitely need a car.

    Your favourite destination?

    I know, its stunning isn't it? I think its from the Cosmopolitan Hotel - definitely one I want to stay in next time. I like the idea of the wrap around suites. Pauline

    New York

    Hello there My name is Pauline and I'm one of the USA Specialists. February is a great time to go to NYC as prices are very reasonable at that time. I do actually prefer the Winter months to the Summer ones. The atmosphere is really exciting and its great for families to wrap up nice and warm and experience the Ice Skating at the Iconic Central Park!! There are direct flights from most regional airports. Whilst in NYC, the most important thing is location, location, location and I can recommend many great hotels. Pauline

    Cancun

    Hi My name is Pauline and I'm one of the Long Haul specialists. I would most definitely agree, Cancun is pretty rowdy at times, particularly with the '18-30' age group so wouldn't recommend for families at height of Summer. Probably one of the best hotels for families is the Gran Bahia Principe in the Riviera Maya area. Thanks.
