We don’t charge you, our readers, a fee for the information provided on this website. However, we are running a family business. To keep the lights on, we partner with companies who pay us a small referral fee when you use the links below and make a purchase on their websites. However, we’re really, really picky! We only partner with companies that we know well: either we personally know the owners or we personally use their products on a regular basis. So feel good about working with them and even better about supporting KidTripster!

If you prefer to book your airline tickets or hotel rooms online, check out Momondo. You may never have heard of it, but a Frommer’s study found this website offers the best online prices the majority of the time - better than sites like Kayak, Expedia, and Orbitz.
