    Im 17 currently, will be 18 by the time we go on holiday next summer, and I really don't want to go on holiday with my family anymore. I told my mum and she is forcing me to go on holiday as it will probably be the last full family holiday as I'll hopefully get into university next year.

    The problem is I get bored easily when around my family, and I feel like everything is restricted as everyone else is foreign and alienate British people. And I can't do anything as I have an older and younger sister....

    So, when did you stop holidaying with your parents and why?

    I'm 17 and still go on holiday with my parents, but have also been on a few without them, just went to Portugal on a hen do last week... My brother is 20 and still comes on holiday with us, he always complains about it beforehand but ends up enjoying himself if we meet other people on holiday. Just go, free holiday! Better than being stuck here xxx

    I'm 18 and still go. I love going on holidays with my parents and brother, family time is nice. And they pay for places I could never afford to go to with friends.
    Then again I never socialise with people other than my family on holiday because I like their company - if you hate your family's company then it must be miserable.

    I wouldn't turn down a free holiday especially if its somewhere decent. I don't really understand what you mean when you say you can't do anything because of your sisters.

    Sounds like your mum really wants you to go and you should - to avoid upsetting her and looking ungrateful.

    I haven't been on holiday with my parents since I was 15. I just go with friends/boyfriend - way more fun!

    I couldn't care less if I go with my parents, they pay for everything and it is nice to get away. For the last two years I have gone abroad with mates aswell the usual two weeks on a greek island or something with them. And I just go out and meet others and go clubbing with my brother who is only a year younger than me.
    Also, I enjoy being with my family, we always have a top laugh, so it isn't boring or anything.
    Bottom line, IT IS FREE, never turn down something free, I hate having to pay for my holidays with mates, but bottom line, it is free, bite the bullet.

    My mum told me I had to pay for my own plane ticket if I wanted to come on holiday with them last year :mad:

    I dunno, we never had many holidays. If they invited me now I wouldn't go, and I am 20.
    It depends what you consider a "holiday" though. If it were a trip somewhere interesting I'd still go, but if it were some ******** trip to Spain to just lie around getting skin cancer and eating chips, they would have to actually pay me to go. Not that my parents would want to go on that kind of holiday anyway.

    I'm 21 and I still take weekends with my mum. We have a lot of fun and it's nice to spend some time together.

    I'm 23 and I still go with them sometimes, who honestly would turn down a free holiday to Cuba? The hotel room came with complimentary cigars which were restocked daily. I'd have gone just for the free cigars let alone the good weather and interesting culture.

    I'm 24 and still go on holidays with my parents. They're in Cornwall without me this time as I'm with my boyfriend for our anniversary, but if it wasn't our anniversary I probably would've gone with them.

    I'd always go on holiday with my parents, we're family and get on well. But it is nice going on holiday with the boyfriend though - different type of holiday all together.

    I stopped when I was 17 because of work and other commitments, but me and my boyfriend are both going on holiday with my family next year, and we will both be 21 then! As everyone else says, free holiday!

    This :yep:

    Basically, as long as they're paying for me, I'm not going to turn it down!

    I'm 20 and still go. My Mum has the uncanny ability of making me feel incredibly guilty if I don't, so I end up thinking I might as well if it saves me weeks and weeks of her being off with me and making me feel guilty.
