Family holidays in term time

Ah, yes. It's mid August again. That point in the year when cool young PR things start issuing 'special offer & late availability' press releases on behalf of their clients trying to get rid off end-of-season distressed stock of family holidays.

Every year they do this (actually three times a year, but it's most noticeable in Aug), quoting discounted prices for adults and children - forgetting (not being parents yet) that children have to go to school in Sept.

Yes, there are families with pre-school toddlers, but why quote for children up to 12 and teenagers?
