Last updated 2nd August 2023

Finding Flight Centre to help plan her recent family trip to Mauritius was a game changer for Rochelle Streater. Here’s why she thinks they should be every parent’s holiday essential.

Let’s admit it, planning a family trip anywhere (even the local shop) can feel like a military operation. So it’s hardly surprising planning a foreign holiday can feel a bit overwhelming to frazzled mums and dads.

From airport transfers and choosing the right family hotel with a compatible kids club to child seating restrictions on a plane and what’s included in your hotel package, there is a lot to plan.

Luckily, there is also a solution to the hassle – using a trusted travel agent. I’ve always found seeking expert help can make a significant difference so it was a no-brainer when I was tasked with organising our latest family getaway to Mauritius.

Flight Centre made our trip to Mauritius a dream

Enter tailor-made holiday specialists Flight Centre; turning to the travel pros really made a difference. Thanks to their bank of knowledge, they were able to offer us tried and tested hotel recommendations and guidance throughout the entire booking process. In short, no more stress for us!

The team took the time to find out exactly what suited our family and what we were looking for as well as factoring in our budget. Whether it was arranging child-friendly activities or ensuring our accommodations had the necessary amenities, Flight Centre’s attention to detail was exceptional.

This helped save us both time and money as the company had access to exclusive deals and was able to compare prices of excursions, flights and transfers across a wide range of service providers.

The agents were also able to recommend and secure a few extra perks such as free room upgrades and complimentary spa treatments which was amazing.

Inside knowledge added magic

Not only did Flight Centre take care of all the logistics, but they also provided us with insider knowledge about the destination. So the team was able to suggest off-the-beaten-path attractions and local events that we wouldn’t have known about otherwise. This allowed us to explore Mauritius beyond the typical tourist spots and create unforgettable family memories.

What’s more, Flight Centre also provided us with a phone number for 24/7 assistance if we needed it. This was invaluable as it gave us total peace of mind knowing we had support if anything came up; whether we had questions about our itinerary or needed assistance with a last-minute change, their customer service team was just a phone call away. This level of care and consideration helped us feel confident and comfortable during our journey, knowing that all our needs were taken care of.
