Family Holidays with Bertie & Boo Travel Matters has been helping families in SW London with their family holiday arrangements for a very long time. One day they asked; how they could make the family travel experience even better for the children? Renowned for their Make Travel Matter talks in primary schools, they wanted to create something special, helping little travellers learn more about exploring. Who better to ask than Bertie & Boo? So one day they headed to Adventure Island. Bertie & Boo heard about the plans and agreed that it was a good idea to partner with Travel Matters and so, as if by magic, the partnership began! Their Adventure Island is so much fun and we LOVE it there but we thought there are times when you need a real adventure. We have a solution – come and talk to us with your mums and dads as we can help plan a real adventure island holiday. Mum and Dad – scan the code to watch some of the things Bertie and Boo get up to when not on holiday.

The journey begins... How can we ensure those long journeys are less boring? How can you be less irritable when you are at the airport or ferry terminal? Long road transfers can be REALLY dull at times! We are confident that we have improved the whole holiday process, from when you come to the travel agency to discuss your holiday plans, you can play with our toys or read our story books whilst mum and dad receive our expert advice. As mothers ourselves, we can offer you our personal recommendations whilst providing activities and games here and on your chosen holiday destination.


Time to pack... Can you help Bertie and Boo pack their suitcase? Draw the objects on the list inside the case below.

Turtles can live longer humans. One even lived to 188 years old! We were alive 220 million years ago that means we lived with the dinasaurs.  We can get tangled in fishing nets or hurt ourselves banging into boats.  Leave us alone and don’t encourage us to come to boats or people.
