Proof that Family Trips Made Easy works

“You’ve done all the work for me! Instead of having to go to heaps of different websites to find each piece of information, it was all there in the course, step-by-step. It was clear, quick and easy to do, and the bonus is I can revisit it once I get closer to leaving on our trip.

I thought I knew everything I needed to know but there were so many things I hadn’t thought of. I was so wrapped up in the big stuff like flights, that I was forgetting all the crucial little details – time savers, mind savers and financial savers.”

Helen Lange, mother of two

Hi, I’m Nicci O’Mara

I’m the creator of Family Trips Made Easy, mum to two boys aged 9 and 11, wife, and intrepid traveller.

When I first started travelling with my kids, I did what we all do. Get on Google and start searching for things to do, where to stay, and how to get around with kids in tow. I’d spend hours and hours clicking and reading, only to find I was overwhelmed with too much information and not much was based on the experiences of families. I didn’t have time for this. I had work to do and kids to look after.

So I’d ask the travel agent, friends and family, and they were fantastic with the big things like flights and insurance. But I soon discovered I’d also need to know hundreds of smaller things that I’d never had to worry about before kids. Things like how to keep kids happy on a long flight, where to find affordable kid-friendly accommodation, what playgrounds are best, and did my kids need car seats.

So we learned everything the long and hard way, and over the years have put in enormous hours of research, talked to hundreds of families, and learned from our own mistakes.

Now I’m the last person to say it’ll be all unicorns and rainbows because travel, like life, is messy. It involves personalities, plenty of hormones, and pushing everyone outside of their comfort zone.  And that’s why the more bumps in the road you can smooth over before you leave home, the better!

Thankfully for families today, there’s no reason anyone needs to start from scratch when I’ve already done all the heavy lifting. I’ve learned how to travel smarter, cheaper and more often with my family, and have helped inspire hundreds of other parents to get out there and travel with their kids.

And I’d love to help you too.

Proof that Family Trips Made Easy works

Dahlas Fletcher, mother of three

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is this course for me?

A: The people who get the biggest benefit from Family Trips Made Easy are those that have a can-do attitude, love learning new things that make their lives easier, and are ready to invest in themselves to make good things happen.

People like Helen who had already started booking her trip with a great travel agent.  After joining Family Trips Made Easy, she realised she’d been so wrapped up in the big stuff like flights, that she’d forgotten all the crucial little details that would turn out to be the time-savers, mind-savers and money-savers!

If you want to take amazing trips with your kids, (whether you’ve started planning or not) and you want to make it easier and without the stress and overwhelm, then Family Trips Made Easy is for you.

Q: Who isn’t this for?

A: People who don’t want to take action. This isn’t something that will happen just by watching videos and filling out a few workbooks, you actually have to take action. We’ll give you the step-by-step processes and you need to implement them, as you plan and take your trip.

It’s not for anyone who just wants to “kind of” check things out.  You can’t “kind of” travel. Family Trips Made Easy is for people who are committed to doing what it takes to make their family trip happen.  If the intention and the right attitude aren’t there, this isn’t the program for you and it’s best not to join.

Q: How long will the course take to go through?

A: There is one module a week for six weeks and we would expect it to take you up to 1 hour a week to watch the videos, fill out your workbook, and download checklists and any other resources.

Q: Is there a private Facebook group for this program?

A: Absolutely there is! This is where we will hold our Live Q&A’s for the six weeks of the course, plus you can ask your questions about travel to the other parents in the course.

You can remain in the group for as long as you remain a member in good standing (i.e. you continue to treat us and other members with the kindness and respect they deserve)

Q: What happens after I purchase?

A: As soon as your payment has been processed (usually about 5-ish minutes), you’ll get a welcome email, containing your very first action step to get your login organised.

Class kicks off on Monday, 3 June 2019, but you can get moving on the foundation lessons as soon as you enrol.

Q: How long will I be able to access the course?

A: You’ll have access to the course for 12 months including any upgrades we do to the material in that time. You’ll be able to stay a member of the private Facebook group for as long as you like, on the condition you follow the rules of the group (be kind, be respectful etc).

Q: What if I don’t buy the course?

A: Nothing. You’ll be in the same place you are right now and that is your choice to make. There are no hard feelings.

Q: Why pay when there’s so much free information out there?

A: That’s the thing, there’s so much information available on the internet and in bookstores that it’s overwhelming to know where to start, what’s reliable information and what’s specific to families. I’ve done the searching and organising for you.

Trip Chiefs gives you step-by-step information and resources so that you can save your time and money for other things. Here you’ve got the guidance, community support, and ease that Trip Chiefs provides.

What if…

What if just one idea in Family Trips Made Easy…
helps to save you money on every trip?

What if just one done-for-you resource…
helps to save hours of your precious time?

What if just one piece of advice…
helps you to have a better vacation with your kids?

What if the knowledge you gained…
helps you to travel more with your kids?

What would these changes be worth to you over your lifetime?

What would it cost if you were to try and learn this yourself?
How many hours of your time would it take for you to find all of this information, and work out the good from the bad?

Our past students have said they thought they’d be able to source all the information they needed from friends, family and travel agents, but that there were so many essential things that no one else told them and tools no one gave them. Things that would save them time, money and their sanity.

And what would it cost you if you did nothing at all? If you stayed stuck just dreaming of travelling with your kids? 

There’s another way.  And when you add up all the hours you’d spend trying to do it alone, not to mention the frustration of not getting where you want to be quickly – well, you deserve to take the easiest, fastest route so you can finally take amazing trips that you’ll love.

And the way to get there is Family Trips Made Easy academy.

Stop waiting for the right time to take your kids on that dream trip. There will never be a perfect time.

Stop waiting until you have more money, more time, and less things to do. Chances are you aren’t going to strike it rich and retire before your kids leave home, so start saving now and put aside the time.

Stop waiting until the kids are older. They will learn more than you could imagine from travel.

What’s the point in waiting, when you can do something about it right now.
