Does the thought of kids on holiday make you cringe? Well you’ll be pleased to hear that Thomson Holidays has launched its adult-only brand ‘Thomson Couples’, and are claiming to be the first mainstream travel company to be able to offer child free holidays around the world.

The new brand is said to be a result of a survey carried out by the tour operator which showed that 79% of holidaymakers were ‘affected’ by kids when on holiday. 31% even went on to say that other people’s children had ‘ruined’ their break. However other people’s offspring are not the only ones to blame, 40% of those surveyed said that their own kids affect their time on holiday.

The new holidays are due to be launched in the summer and will include 19 hotels exclusively for adults only, destinations will include the Algarve, Crete, Mexico and the Dominican Republic.
