    As long as you enjoy their company then I'd say you're never too old to go on holiday with your parents. I'd happily go on holiday with my mum at any age :laugh:

    I'm 17 but it's acc so stressful going on holiday with my parents. They never plan anything in advance, so a lot of the time, half of our actual stay is spent by planning where to visit, eat etc, rather than actually enjoying the holiday itself. I hope when I'm at uni I can meet a good bunch of friends to go on holiday with (a proper holiday, not just Ibiza, Napa, etc lol).

    Once you're married or in a serious relationship, you'll have an excuse not to go... until then enjoy!

    This is ridiculous. When is too old to spend time with your family which might happen to be abroad?

    You're never too old, as said earlier, you will never be too old to spend time with your parents.

    Although I see why people may stop, I'm 17 and my parents never fail to annoy me even more on holiday which I didn't think was possible

    Is it even possible to be too old to go on holiday with them? I mean, what could be better than travelling with your two closest family members? It might even look like you're taking them on a holiday!

    Well, I'm going on holiday next year with my dad and I'm 27. Only because he wants to go and I can't find anyone else willing to go with me.

    Never - I also really spend time with them during the summer, so you can bet your butt I'll be going with them for many years to come.

    I feel like you're more asking 'when can I go on holiday alone'. In which case, depends on maturity but most barriers are gone at 18. Car rental is the only thing that remains difficult at that age.

    You can still go on holiday with them though, if you want.

    I'm 24 and I still holiday with my parents sometimes. When my boyfriend told me that he's never been on holiday with his parents since he was a child, I thought it was a bit odd, but I guess everyone is different!

    I do also go on holidays/travelling alone sometimes, my first time at age 21 (would have been earlier if I had the money). Never gone on holiday with friends though, but I have gone with my boyfriend
