Put a cap on travel companies prices during the school holidays

We all know how important holidays are to unwind from all the stress we receive from the daily work routine and holidays are important for both kids and adults.
Anyone who is a parent knows how expensive it is to take kids on holidays during the school holiday.
As per the latest Telegraph report
Travel firms make trips nine times more expensive during school holidays. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/news/half-term-flights-cost-nine-times-more-than-usual-research-finds/
Not only travel companies but all the excursion places also increase their prices. For example, Legoland in term times cost £32 per person during holidays £62.
Basically, anywhere you want to take your kids during the holidays for fun the prices go sky high.
Due to these extremely high costs of holidays, many parents are not able to take their kids on holidays at all. This is creating a social imbalance in the society when after holidays some school children talk about how fantastic their holidays were as they visited some nice place abroad and some children have not much to share.
This is a problem that I see many parents suffering from but no one talks about it or does anything about it.
We demand from the UK and European Parliament to pass a law in which there must be a cap on all the travel companies and all the excursions, they should only be allowed to increase the prices to a certain limit that is not too high from the of peak prices.
We understand there will be a flux of families who would want to go on holidays if the prices would go down, such situations can easily be tackled by first come first serve basis. High demands will also open more venues of holidays for the parents.
