What is Multigenerational Travel?

Multigenerational travel also referred to as multigen, is a term used to describe multiple generations in a family who are choosing to go on a holiday together. These generations could be grandparents, parents and children, as well as cousins and aunties and uncles, all of which decide to share their trip together.

Multigenerational travel is slowly becoming increasingly popular, with families deciding to spend their precious vacation time together as a family.
