Why Carrier / We've got you covered


Creating stories

Make your family getaways some of the most formative and memorable of your child’s life. Let us arrange your one-on-one bonding time, whether that be a mother-daughter swim with turtles, siblings foraging for their own fruit and vegetables with the chef, or choosing the perfect spot for a sandbank picnic and stargazing with dad.

For big get-togethers

Whether it’s a special occasion or just some precious downtime, we will create the right balance of relaxation, adventure and play time so that every generation is catered for. Think large residences with butler service and personal chefs at your own private pool party – while the kids make a movie of the holiday for you all to remember.

Something for all ages

Whether you’re travelling with tiny tots, toddlers or teens, we’ve got you covered. Everything from baby yoga, karma-inducing sensory zones and all manner of baby essentials (milk, food, toiletries, buggies and more) waiting for you on arrival, to teenage kicks such as e-scavenger hunts and photo hikes to satisfy their love of technology.

Learn as you go

Never has kids play been more innovative, educational and fun.
 From programmes designed to inspire mini scientists, botanists, artists, astrologists and linguists, to serious skill-honing under the tutelage of world-class professionals in academies. These perspective-changing experiences are guaranteed to excite, enrich and educate.

At your service

Baby’s first flight? First time on skis? First family safari adventure? Whether it’s a Flying Nanny to keep them occupied or being met airside; a private ski instructor to help on the beginner slopes; or a private vehicle and guide 
for shorter and more interactive game drives – we’re here to personalise your holiday to ensure you’ve got the support where you need it.

For peace of mind

Often we include little touches you may not realise are included. From private transfers and executive lounge access at selected terminals on mid and long-haul flights, to fast-track immigration in certain destinations. What's more, our all-inclusive options and children eat free offers will ensure a stress-free break and no unwanted surprises at check-out.
