How you could get free international and NZ flights for a year and relive your family vacations

Whip out those family photo albums.

Jetstar’s turning 14 next month and to celebrate, they will shout your flights for one whole year... that’s if you take your kids along with you. Yep, even if they left the nest a while ago!

One lucky winner who shares a throwback Instagram post of their family on holiday will score 12 domestic and 6 international Jetstar flights for them and their parents - so dig out the old family photos and tell your kids to get snapping.

Jetstar says they interviewed 500 Kiwis and discovered two-thirds of them have stopped holidaying with their parents, most of those by the time they turn 18

They also found a bunch of other **interesting** preferences Kiwis have when it comes to travelling with their parents (if you’re a parent you probably won’t want to read the rest of the survey results, so be warned).

Apparently, one in three NZers finds sitting next to mum or dad on a flight for more than five hours unbearable, with 30% finding they can’t get alone time when vacay-ing with the fam. One-quarter of Kiwis said they believe at least one of their parents is constantly stressing about something - ever experienced an airport mum/dad? Yep, it might've been you, but 'it's always better to be early', right?

A quarter of Kiwis aged 18 - 34 find it embarrassing when their parents talk to locals of a foreign country. 

It's not all angsty teen energy though, one adorable finding showed Kiwis love travelling with their parents because they get to spend quality time together building memories as they see the world. Don't you want to experience that again? 

Mums are seen as the better travelling partner as they are “more relaxed”, but dads are still a vibe as they are “more adventurous and more likely to pay for things”.

Despite people usually thinking it's Dad who's hustling too much to get to the airport fifty hours early, Kiwis say it's actually Mum who likes to get there with extra time to spare.


So, if you're keen to travel like it's a family vacation again, start digging through the old photo albums and get snapping!
