Plan well in advance.
This helps to get the best deals in booking flights and hotels.
Choose your holiday destination wisely.
Look for places where the kids have something to do, like swimming, games, playgrounds, carnivals, fun parks and movies.
Try to buy the attractions tickets online. You usually end up saving more that way, plus it will save you a lot of time queuing up.
Also, do your research well. Is it going to be hot? Is it going to be cold? How safe is the place? Are there any precautions you need to take? What are the best places to visit?
Get travel insurance
So many things can go wrong during travel, from losing your baggage to falling sick. And getting medical attention in a foreign country can be super expensive.
Getting a travel insurance can help you feel fully relaxed while you’re travelling with kids.
Make sure to carry enough diapers, bottles and baby wipes if you are travelling with really young kids.
Don't over-cram your day.
Plan more breaks and fewer activities, so you have more time to rest.
Kids get too hungry too often, so make sure to carry plenty of snacks with you.
It also helps to have frequent stops for meals and drinks to keep everyone’s energy levels up.
Dont forget to pack these medical essentials:
- Paracetamol or ibuprofen (to relieve aches and pains)
- Antihistamine (for mild allergic reactions)
- Motion sickness medicine (if travelling with children, or by train, bus, car or boat)
- Plasters, bandages, gauze pads and tape (for minor wounds or abrasions)
- Antiseptic cream (to prevent infection)
- Rehydration sachets (for stomach bugs)
- Sanitiser (in case you are unable to wash your hands with soap and water)
- Mosquito repellent
