Make More Memories Together

Create unforgettable experiences with your family today, before your trip even begins.

Design your next family vacation

Getting the whole family involved in travel planning gives everyone a say and allows you to get creative, engaged and excited about your future trip.

Plan your next family vacation, together! Travel is one of the best ways to forge deeper connections with those most important to you and the travel planning process is a great way to come together as a family and bond before the vacation even begins.

Here are some of the benefits of having your family be a part of the planning process:

Family Bonding

When planning a family vacation, you're all working towards a common goal — creating a memorable trip. This shared purpose helps build stronger, deeper connections and makes the vacation feel well deserved and that much more special.

Core Life Skills

Working together as a team helps foster core life skills such as communication, collaboration and compromise. It also allows everyone to learn and develop leadership qualities like negotiating and patience that will help them throughout their lives.

New Conversations

When planning together, you're able to uncover your family members' interests — some of which may surprise you! Not all big conversations need to be reserved for the adults. Get everyone to participate in the decision-making process to ensure the entire family has a say in what is decided.

Overall Development

Regardless of age, people love to have their ideas recognized and heard. Being included in the process from conception to execution will encourage family members to be organized, come up with bold ideas and feel a sense of accomplishment when they see their plans come to fruition during their vacation of a lifetime.

What is a VACAVATAR?

Vacation + Avatar = VACAVATAR

Your vacation avatar is your entry to bold family travel. And much like your perfect vacation, how you pronounce VACAVATAR is up to you…
