Let’s face it – for parents, the February half term doesn’t have a huge amount going for it. Yes, a break is always welcome, but many of us are still worrying about those post-Christmas finances. And added to this is the fact that you have to entertain your children when the weather isn’t exactly welcoming. So it should come as no surprise that we’re often stuck for school holiday ideas at this time of year. But we now have a fantastic solution. For a limited time only, you can use our Kids Pass deal to access an exclusive offer – get an extra 15 days free on their trial period, enjoying a 45 day trial for just £1 instead of the usual 30 days. And if you time signing up just right, you can then claim hundreds of excellent discounts for the February half term along with a whole heap of ideas for winter days out. So where would you like to go?
Let’s start with perhaps the most obvious answer at this time of year – the cinema. There’s usually no shortage of family friendly films to watch during the school holiday period, and if you’re lucky, they’ll be options for a few different age groups. But these days, the cinema isn’t a cheap option by any means. Buying tickets for a family of four (or more if you’re taking along other children too), and then snacks on top of that can often push a trip to the flicks into three figure territory. And this is exactly why our Kids Pass deal is so great. By paying just £1 for the 45 day trial period, you’ll then get access to all their cinema discounts for that period. And these aren’t just limited to one cinema chain. Their cheap cinema tickets cover 10 cinema brands and 400 branches across the UK with a saving of up to 40% off available for members. All you need to do is to select your location and the number of tickets you’d like. You can then go ahead and use your cheap cinema tickets 7 days a week.
Indoor Play Centres
February half term is all about the indoors. Yes, there are still plenty of outdoor options, but if we’re hedging our bets, it’s best to book somewhere with a bit of shelter. Any parents of younger children know indoor play centres are an excellent choice – you can let them run wild (to a certain extent) while you relax with a cuppa and a slice of cake. What could be a better activity for a rainy February afternoon? Signing up to Kids Pass means you’ll get discounts on a number of play centre names including Bramleys Big Adventure in west London, Kids About and Rascals.
Aquariums and Animal Parks
You don’t need us to point out that most aquariums are indoors and therefore make a good winter day out. But don’t dismiss the outdoor option either – you never know, you might be blessed with a sunny February day at some point! Kids Pass members can not only access exclusive discounts for entry to aquariums across the UK, but they can also get cheap tickets for safari parks and zoos including Knowsley Safari Park, Edinburgh Zoo and Marwell Zoo. These attractions are often a bit quieter at this time of year too, which give you an ideal opportunity to spy on your favourite animals without the crowds.
Here in the UK, we are blessed with many free museums (although we would also suggest giving them a small donation at the door if you can). But if you’ve exhausted all these days out, or just want to try something different, using our Kids Pass deal means you can get a huge choice of discounted options during the 45 day trial period. If you’re based in the north west and have yet to visit the Manchester Untied Museum, this is a great opportunity to do so at a discount. And a day out at The Teddy Bear Museum is perfect for both young and old alike.
Going out for a family meal can be an activity in itself, and quite often a very expensive one. Sometimes the school holidays represent the only chance we get to do this, so you want to get it right. As with many things, arranging where you are going in advance can, more often than not, get you the best value for money. And of course, that is the case when it comes to Kids Pass. With kids go free and money off deals available at name like Prezzo, Frankie & Benny’s and Giraffe, you can combine one of the above activities with a meal and not break the bank. Or perhaps just treat yourselves to a slap up family breakfast after a well-deserved half term lie in.
There is another BIG advantage to signing up for a Kids Pass with our exclusive code. Those extra 15 days free will give you a bit more time to plan your summer holiday. This is because members not only get access to hundreds of days out deals, but also loads of actual family holiday discounts too. Yes, we mean actual, proper package holidays. So when you pay that £1 for your 45 day trial period, why not make use of that time to pick out a great holiday deal for you and your family too? You could end up saving a huge amount of money for very little outlay.
We think you’ll agree, spending just £1 to access all those discounts represents incredibly good value for any family struggling to find affordable school holiday activities. But if you decide to continue with Kids Pass after your trial period ends, it still makes good financial sense. With monthly subscription from just £2.99 or an annual charge from £29.99, you can make your money back in absolutely no time at all. And you can then continue to make those ongoing savings every time you use their discounted tickets. So the next time you have a school holiday on the horizon, see what cheap tickets are available in your area and plan your days outs around those discounts.
