Why you should be planning an ‘education-vacation’ this summer

It seems there’s a science behind how holidays can make you smarter!

According to findings, 86% of people who took educational holidays as a child believe it made them more intellectually curious.

Wider studies suggest that eight in ten children are more interested in what they are taught at school after an educational holiday, while more than half (59%) of children who go on educational holidays achieve higher grades at school.

Travel, it turns out, really does broaden the mind and can help adults and kids learn in many different ways that are just aren’t possible in the classroom, so why not find inspiration for your next family holiday with Opodo.

The travel experts have published a new infographic that reveals why traveling is the best education possible and shares insight into what should be on your bucket list when holidaying with the family this summer.

Visiting museums allows people to learn in a free form manner, while a trip to an art gallery can improve a child’s tolerance, empathy and critical skills, according to the infographic.
