Studies show that over half of the families traveling in 2018 spent between $1,000 and $4,999 planning a family vacation. Airlines like Scandinavian Airlines and Air Tahiti are making it easier for families to save a few dollars while planning their yearly vacation.

Scandinavia carries the reputation of being one of the most expensive places you can visit in Europe, but if Scandinavia or Finland are on your travel wish list, and you want to take the kiddos, Scandinavian Airlines has an offer you might want to take advantage of this week. The airline is allowing children 11 and under to fly free (you just pay the taxes and fees). But, you have to jump on this offer quickly since you have to book by December 10th and travel between January 8 and April 2, 2019. Hello, spring break!
